Five years of blogging!
Yesterday marked the fifth anniversary of my blog. I started blogging to keep family and friends in touch with the Podlings and to serve as a record of our life. When I started the blog, I had a toddler and a baby and we lived in Cornwall. Five years later and we have moved North to Staffordshire and now have two school-aged children and a toddler. I stand in wonder at how fast the time has flown by and I wish at times that I could slow it all down so I could savour each moment.
I have enjoyed blogging immensely and it has served me well as there are many things I have written about here that I would otherwise have forgotten. The pleasure of blogging is nothing compared to the pleasure of going back and re-reading old posts. I hope that one day the Podlings will look back on this record of their childhood with pleasure and might take a moment to be thankful that their mother took the time to record things that she knew they wouldn't remember themselves.
I thought it might be nice to invite my readers to 'de-lurk' in honour of my fifth anniversary. If you read my blog and are not too shy I'd love you to say 'Hello!' in the comments. I love to get comments, so it would be nice to get a few on this special anniversary.
Here's to another five years of blogging!
