4-Year Blogiversary!

15 Jan

On January 15th, 2008, I published my first post ever to the blogosphere:

I love writing. But I hardly ever do it–something that really needs to change. So this blog is my answer.

It’s not that I don’t want to write, it’s that I don’t make the time. I find myself distracted by other things I enjoy doing: reading, exercising, cooking. In college, I majored in Journalism and Spanish–two majors that center on writing. Almost all I did for 4 years was write and I would gladly do that for a career if ever the opportunity presented itself.

I have heard, though, that to be a good writer you have to be a consistent reader–at least I have that going for me. I just started The Pilgrim’s Progress by John Bunyan last night. It’s different than I expected it to be. It seems like a lot of the snippets I’ve heard from other people about the book have occurred in the first 2 chapters. Makes me interested to see what the other chapters have in store.

For more information about me, check out the links to the right. Until next time…

Pretty exciting stuff, huh? (ha, not!)

Since I just talked about why I blog in my 400th blog post, I will keep this short and sweet.

In honor of my lovely readers, without whom blogging just wouldn’t be the same, I’m offering one lucky winner a $25 gift card to the restaurant or store of their choice. 

To enter the giveaway, please answer this question in your comment (don’t just say that you want the gift card, because that goes without saying!):

If you could compete in one Olympic event (and be good at it), which one would you choose and why?

I would choose figure skating. I got to skate a few years growing up and loved it. Although the marathon trials were very inspiring, it also looked like a crapton of work and pain.

Not too surprisingly, my husband would choose hockey so that he could, in his words, “kick some Canadian @$$!”

The giveaway will close Wednesday night and I will announce the winner Thursday morning.

Thanks for reading! I love hearing from you.
