Two, Two years of blogging ah ah ah

Today marks my two year blog anniversary.

I was just telling somebody yesterday that blogging has changed my life.

It hasn’t changed who I am.

But it has changed what I think about who I am, and what I’m doing with who I am.


Blogging has changed what I think about who I can be.

I am living in the same house and driving the same car to the same job.

And yet my life is on a different trajectory than it was before.

The little circle that was my life two years ago is now the circumference of the world.

And the goals that I’ve set and the steps that I’ve taken to grow myself are a direct result of what has been happening in this space.

That’s a pretty cool thing.

So I want to take a moment and say thank you.

Thank you so much for being here with me, for visiting me and chatting with me, for encouraging and supporting me.

To those of you who blog, thank you for all you put out there for the world to see.

Thank you for sharing of yourselves.

I started the Infinite Monkey posts because what you say matters.

Because it makes us think, feel, laugh and understand.

That’s a truly great thing.

  2. Boots,

    Your truth and your greatness are also apparent… set a fine example 🙂

    • Mark! You know I love the sweet talk, haha. Actually, I was just thinking about you yesterday and wondering how you are doing. Glad to know you’re still hanging out with me 🙂 How are things at your end of the east coast?

      • The unbearable heat has been building down here. Cooling measures have alleviated some of the DSB……I have begun writing again. There will be another post soon, but a trip entry – the next opinion / idea piece is still swirling.

        I would expect with your swing into spring that some fresh footwear shopping will be happening…..if you need a second opinion on anything, let me know 🙂

        April 19, 2013
        • Well I’m glad your blockage is starting to clear 😉 And when I’m ready to make that shopping trip, you’ll be the first one I ask for advice!

  3. Happy Two years of blogging! And hope to see you around for many more years 🙂

    Btw, how did you come up with the name ‘Infinite Monkey’?

    April 19, 2013
    • Thanks! I’ve really, truly enjoy our chats!

      I got the idea to share blogger quotes because of something yearstricken had written that was so good I wanted to share it. I was trying to think of a name for the posts when she wrote about the Infinite Monkey Theorem – I thought “that’s it!” The theorem says that “a monkey hitting keys at random on a typewriter keyboard for an infinite amount of time will almost surely type a given text, such as the complete works of William Shakespeare.” We write lots and lots of stuff and sometimes we hit on something really, really great. And sometimes it’s just a random thing we say, but it speaks to someone else in a profound way. Anyway, this is the post that inspired the name:

      • Oh yeah, I know about the Infinite Monkey theorem! Except that I’ve never heard of that name being used earlier.

        That’s a pretty apt name. Wow. I love when names are so apt 😀

        April 20, 2013
        • I’d never heard of it before at all, but I thought it was just right, too. 🙂

          April 20, 2013
  4. Congratulations to you! Blogging is a great way for all of us to connect. It sure makes the world a much smaller and wonderful place!

    April 19, 2013
    • Thanks, Susie Q! Yes, we both feel the same way about that! I’m glad we met in this big world of bloggers 🙂

  5. Happy Two Years! You are one of the first blogs I discovered when I started working on my blog. I love your voice and perspective. Thanks for sticking with it!

    April 19, 2013
    • Thank you Patti! You were one of my firsts, too 😉 I’m glad you’re back to it, I really missed you when you were gone.

  6. Happy blogiversary! I’ve really enjoyed being blog friends with you these past two years, Michelle, and look forward to many more years of thought provoking posts.

    • Thank you Angela! I value our friendship very much! Blog or no blog, haha – one day I’m going to show up in Texas and then you’ll have to deal with me in person 🙂

      April 19, 2013
      • There’s still our trip to Yellowstone! I would love to see you here in TX, and maybe I’ll come up and see you one day, too!

        April 19, 2013
        • I would love for you to come here! Just give me at least six months notice so I can clean the house, lol!

          April 19, 2013
          • No need to clean! Friends don’t have to clean when “real” friends come to visit.

            April 24, 2013
          • Haha – okay, but don’t say I didn’t warn ya! 🙂

            April 24, 2013
  7. That was really lovely!! Congratulations 😉 and, quite literally, here’s to many, many more!!

    • Hi Lorna – thanks! The time flies by, I tell ya. I was thinking about you the other day and how I couldn’t bring myself to delete content and start over. You’re pretty brave!

      April 20, 2013
      • HA! Not that brave, I put most of it back because I got so many emails from people saying “I can’t find so and so!” *sigh*

        April 20, 2013
        • LOL! But I’m glad – it made me sad that you had put so much work into your blog and then it was all gone. And that just goes to show you how much people like what you do. There was something of yours I wanted to look up a while ago too (don’t remember what it was now), and then I remembered it was gone.

          April 20, 2013
  8. Happy Anniversary. Glad we live on the same blog street. 🙂 I look forward to many more neighborly visits to your blog.
