Today on the Kickin’ it Old Skool Blog-a-thon, we’re remembering what we wrote when we first started blogging.
Apparently, I’ve been doing this since December of 2009.
When I started the blog, my hope was that my husband and I would both post regularly. I think he’s written two or three posts, and I’ve written hundreds.
In my first blog post ever, I introduced this blog, and its goals. The text of the post is below.
Greetings Posted on December 27, 2009 by Penny Higgins We’re just getting this blogging thing sorted out, so bear with us. Here, you’ll find information about cameras and photography, as well as musings about our other interests, which include: paleontology, mechanical engineering, geochemistry, green energy, global warming, and saving the world in general.
Have we stuck to these goals?
Well, I’ve kept up my end of the bargain, posting on paleontology and geochemistry frequently. Mechanical engineering and green energy definitely haven’t been talked about but those are my husband’s pet topics not mine.
I’ve also added a ton to the blog. I started writing fiction, and posting excerpts regularly, plus my Stink Bug Saturday serial post. Geology has become a dominant topic. On Fridays I post headlines in the geological sciences. Then there’s little bits of autism, and art, plus swordplay and costuming.
This blog is a strange hodgepodge of things, but I’m not going to break it out into separate blogs by topic. I’m told that one of the draws of this blog is the diversity of topics that I talk about.
So this is how it will be.
I wonder if it will still be this way in another four years?
