And now we are three

It was three years ago today that I uploaded my first picture and wrote my first words on this blog. This, today, is my 758th post.

The blog's initial purpose was to provide news and photos of the girls to far-off friends and, mainly, family.

I didn't really expect it to take off, though, because the main reason I wanted to try this medium was that I have never been successful at holding up my end of one-on-one correspondence. I almost never wrote letters - even back when letters were all there were. I rarely make phone calls. I frequently leave emails unanswered.

Somehow, though, the blogging worked. And it evolved, of course. The purpose of keeping far-away loved ones apprised of my day-to-day life is still a very important part of the blog, but it has become much more than that.

Thank you, each of you, for visiting and leaving your comments. For caring about the day to day life of someone a lot of you may never meet. For making this Internet thing an actual community as opposed to an anonymous message board or a one-way exercise in self-involvement.

As I said yesterday, humans will reach out to other humans and connect with them through any medium that is available. I'm so very glad that this medium is available to me.

Well done, Jen! I'm impressed by the three years, and mightily impressed by the 758 posts. That's a stunning record.
