Seasons of Blogging

It never ceases to amaze me how much we change in such a short amount of time.  Yeah, physically, blah blah, up 10 lbs, down 2, whatever.  You know what I mean.  When I started this blog (almost) 5 years ago, I was in my first semester of grad school and I had been married for just about 3 weeks.  Yeah, things have certainly changed.  I’m way out of school now and we’ll be celebrating 5 yrs this fall! How crazy is that!  But what strikes me is how my posting priorities have changed.  I mean, when I started, I had huge posts where I got up on my soapbox and stayed there quite often.  I was in the midst of the full time social work grad student and part time pet nurse season of my life, which was certainly an interesting one for sure. LOTS of complaining about homework – and blogs do make a wonderful procrastination tool.

Then, I got out of school and some of the ‘angst’ wore off.  I still cared, but I wasn’t quite as fired up, and honestly some of my posting got a little sparse and at times, just plain apologetic.  Although there was the occasional over-the-top-dramatic-bug-post to keep things interesting. The next few years were just filled with work and life and the cat, with of course, some photos thrown in for good measure.

Then, running took over my blog. Training. I don’t know what I’m doing. Training. Racing. Running in the middle of nowhere. Biking. Swimming. All sorts of food and fitness craziness. Good times.

And of course, major events and family and friends always make it on here.  But then, I started taking more pictures…and seriously considered turning my love for photography into a business.  And now, hardly a post goes by that doesn’t have a photo in it, or sometimes that’s all there is.   All this change just makes me excited for what the next 5 years will bring. =)  Obviously, a LOT more photos.

  • Elizabeth - Glad you’re sharing these shifts and turnings with the rest of the world!

  • Katie in MA - I can’t wait to see, either! I wouldn’t be so sure about the photograph – yes, it does seem as if you and it were meant for each other, but I’ve found that once I make a for-sure proclamation about my life…life insists on changing dramatically!

  • Karyn - well, the photos thing will happen regardless of the professional status of it. just ask any of my friends and family. i always take pictures. =)
