Two Years Blogging
I got an e-mail from WordPress today. It said Happy Anniversary.
When the idea of Bucket Lists came along, I realized that I had already done a lot of what people put on their lists. I was lucky enough to stay in a Bed and Breakfast in Scotland and go hunt for Nessy on the Loch Ness. I’ve been moonlit horse-back riding at Griffith Park in Los Angeles. I’ve walked in a pyramid in Mexico. I’ve seen the waterfalls of Costa Rica and the finish line of the New York Marathon.
There are a lot of odd bits too. I’ve been published in magazines a few times. I hitchhiked across the United States, mostly. I joined a religious cult and went Bible thumping door-to-door for a year.
The World of Warcraft is a hobby. Not a job or a passion, it is something to do to relax or get away from the world. Blogging is fun. I don’t work on the craft of writing as much as I’d like and sometimes I struggle to have something to say; which is what makes blogging so interesting.
Still, two years is an achievement. I think I’d list it with some of the strange things I’ve done in my life:
- College radio deejay
- Stage Manager for a ballet company
- Wrote a blog for two years on the World of Warcraft
- Learned to juggle
- I can tie eight different kinds of knots; blindfolded.
Today, Feb. 12th 2017; my blog has been visited by Australia, United States, Canada, Sweden, Romania, Belgium, Germany, Poland, Finland and Greece. At it’s only 1pm.
If y’all don’t mind, I think I’ll keep at this for a while.
