I have over 900 published posts on this blog right now. That's a lot, I think ... or perhaps not so many, considering how many years I've been blogging.
I also have three years' worth of archived posts on my computer that are no longer on this blog, but I don't know how many posts are there.
I've been blogging since 2005, and for the most part, my topic hasn't significantly deviated from the topic of self-sufficiency. This blog has been a chronicle of my family's changes in lifestyle, and it's been quite a ride, really.
What's very cool is to be able to go back and see what we did. Specifically, it's fun to look back at previous years' posts for things like: our first fire, the first snow, home-made gifts, when we started sugaring, when we planted the garden. It's a record of what was happening on that day, at that time, and more times than I can count, having this record has been incredibly useful.
I am thankful to my friend, Judy, who got me into blogging way back in the day, and I am thankful to all of those of you who read my posts, and I am deeply grateful to those of you have left comments and shared your stories and have become friends of mine over the years.
I often comment about how blessed I am, and this part of my life, this blog, and those who have shared in our adventure, even just virtually, are part of my enchanted life. Thank you for being there.
