10 Blogiversary!!!!!!



Can you believe it? I can't! I opened up blogger in June of 2004 & started typing away. My blog wasn't Pink Lucy then. It was called "Sparkle" & had a different address. I can still remember that my first post was about Fantasia on American Idol. Then in March of 2005, Blogger was acting up for a few days & in a bit of frenzy, I deleted that blog & created Pink Lucy. 

When everyone (myself included) began staying on facebook, most left blogging behind....I was just about the last woman standing (in my group of blogging friends). Even though, these days, most of my blogs consist of photos that I have facebooked, instagramed & twittered, Pink Lucy will not die a slow miserable death! Hahaha! I will always be a blogger at heart & I can't imagine letting my blog go for years without a post. I LOVE facebook, for countless reasons, but with the blog, I can always look back & find things where I can't with facebook. Facebook is not an online journal, where I see my blog is being such. It's a time capsule of moments in my life.

I am glad that I opened up blogger, 10 years ago & began sharing my little piece of the world, such as it is. It has been a great joy to me. I wish had discovered blogging years before that! So many things have happened over these years. Many milestones, heartbreak & happiness. Somethings I am proud of, things I regret....And some I wish I could forget! I know I have said this before, but I have allowed my opinions & mouth, to hurt others. And I have been hurt back in the process. I have lost friends & gained some during this whole blogging adventure. Just like anything in life, it's been a journey & I am overwhelmingly grateful I am not the same person I was 10 years ago. Or 5 years ago....1 year ago...For that matter. Change is a good thing, especially when you can look inside & allow yourself to listen to that still small voice guiding you to new places. To being a better person. Most things no one ever knows, but you do. And that's what is important. I don't think without the blog, I would have been able to see some of my junk & allow for there to be healing & for the Good Lord to rearrange the clutter & messiness in my heart. It's still a process...De-cluttering always is. :)

I don't think there are many....If any, that still read my blog, who were here in the beginning. Pink Lucy rarely gets a comment these days & if I do get one it's from my good buddy. Thank you Denise! I don't think any of the Fat Katz read anymore. I know my Mom doesn't! I do know someone is reading, because I get "hits" everyday, though.
But hey! I ain't cryin'. I'm just going to still blog, blog, blog...Even if it's for myself. If you are reading this would you help me celebrate Pink Lucy's 10th Blogiversary & leave me a comment! I would cherish it bunches!

  3. Hey! I read all your posts. I just don't comment that often. Happy anniversary! I am so glad we met online. Although we've never met in person I count you and your mom as very dear friends.

  4. Yep, still reading here! We've met only once in a crowded bathroom at the drive in theater but no matter. I knew you from a mutual friend, Jamie B. who held you in high regards. I too will keep blogging as my 10 year anniversary fast approaches as, like you said, it is a great way to journal, look back, and remember. I recommend making it into a book which many people have enjoyed in my family. I do one every five years and it is priceless!
