Two Year Anniversary

Last week, I hit my two-year blogging anniversary. I've now been blogging for 739 days and I've amassed 870 posts. Obviously, I posted more than twice a day in my more prolific past because I'm barely managing once or twice a week since beginning this job last February! It's kind of sad, actually -- I was really on a roll there for a while, "meeting" other bloggers (mostly virtual, but once or twice for real), writing constantly, gaining more readers weekly, and really focusing on (and soooo enjoying!) the blogging life.

Then I started a very demanding, very full-time job and the blogginess I loved so much was sucked right out of me. Not that it's my job's fault; I know that if I were truly committed I'd still blog at least once a day and I'd still be able to form a cohesive sentence after working with The Big Software Company in Redmond all day and online with Mumbai "all" night.


Just for fun, I thought I'd re-post a few of my favorite posts of the past:

I Like Slutty Words
I Met a Man without a Wedding Ring for Lunch
Dinner for Two. Make that 4. Or 6... Actually, EIGHT!
Peter Jaffe Never Kissed Me (Even if I Told My Diary That He Did)
Varied Voluble Vociferous Verbosities
An Open Letter to My Internal Clock and Biorhythm
A Five-Senses Tour of Seattle
Pondering "Pretty"

Ya know, I just realized that almost all those posts were written when I was unemployed and panicking about finding "real" work. I wonder whether, had I cultivated and nurtured my writing and blogging a bit more, I could have made a decent income with...

Ah, never mind!

Sigh again.

Happy Anniversary! Yea, work kinda gets in the way of a lot of things. I sort of abandoned my blog last October was just too caught up in work, and now that I'm on medical leave, I found I was going nutso and remembered, "Hey, I can start blogging again, and catch up with old friends, find new ones." It's been great! Keep up the good work!

I don't think I would enjoy your blog as much if you tried to taylor it into generating money. So I am glad you didn't!
