Blog anniversary

I started this blog one year ago today. I posted several posts that day, putting up the adoption update emails that we had sent to family over the previous months and some other things I had journaled about. I do like blogging. I’ve always been a journalor. I have a box of 50 journals up in the attic from my high school years though the early 1990s. They are interesting ~ very stream of conscious and pretty raw emotion. I process thoughts and feelings well through writing. I’ve kept a private journal along with the blog, but I don’t write in it often. Most of what I want to say isn’t too private these days. What is interesting is now that I’m writing for a public audience I’m more likely to think through what I want to say. Posts are composed and sometimes a post slowly brews for a few days before I get to it. It needs to percolate. Those are my favorites. I like that my writing is more thought out now ~ not so much ranting or writing about things that don’t matter. Of course, it is a weird thing to write for an audience and really not know whose out there. I do appreciate the comments, as it’s nice to know my public. Anyway, thanks for following along with my ramblings.
