One year ago today I wrote this and my adventure into blogging began. I never considered myself a social networker, and I am still not much of one. Blogging, Facebook, and all the other things that were so popular were not for me.
I thought I was from the old school. I liked my friends within arms reach when talking. I preferred regular old email if they were far away. Writing on different peoples wall and commenting on their daily activities was for other, mostly younger people.
I started this blog as a curious experiment. I only wanted to see if I could get enough people to read what I had to say to make a little extra cash. I learned that was not possible in about 2 seconds. In order to make any money at this whole internet thing you have to be a lot more talented and dedicated than myself. Still I found it enjoyable to have this new outlet for my thoughts. It allowed me to spew my individuality without offending everyone I know.
Then I finally got a comment on a post. Then I got two comments. Then I found Dad Blogs. That is when I did finally do some social networking and started meeting people. Now I am proud to say that I have literally dozens of imaginary friends out there in cyberspace. Amazingly many of them have stuck with me and listened to all I have to say for months on end. I get a crazy impression that some of them even enjoy my little web page.
To all of you who visit my site I want to say thank you for making this 200th post possible. Without some feed back I would have been discouraged and quit writing long ago. With Braden turning one and becoming more active by the minute I don't think there is any chance of me running out of material any time soon. So if you are willing to go with me I plan on shooting for 200 more posts and beyond.
Happy Birthday Life of a New Dad.
