WordPress kindly informed me that I registered this blog exactly two years ago. It seems like forever ago, but at the same time it seems as if two years went by while I blinked.
A lot has changed in two years. I went from blogging only about personal things, to only blogging about books, and have been transitioning back to write more personal than professional. My network has expanded to include other social media networks as well as blogging, and recently I’ve had to cut back to make room for other obligations.
Monday Morning Fika had a wonderful run, but the set-up was so time intensive that it had to go on hiatus for a while. I miss the weekly morning chats, but it meant too many hours of logistics to arrange each visit. Tuesdays with Ana had become the new way to chat with readers, and I can write a post in about 1/10th of the time it used to take to arrange a Monday Morning Fika.
I now have a cheerful Fika print hanging on my kitchen wall, and I love it. 🙂
I’ve made friends I didn’t expect to make, and two successful years of Ana’s Advent Calendar taught me about community.
From Fika and Advent Calendar, I’ve learned that people will come together for fellowship, and that we can set aside our differences. Maybe only for a short time, but the brevity makes the community all the more precious.
In the past two years, I’ve learned that I do have something to say and that people will listen.
And I am grateful.
Thank you for the past two years.
