So I look at my archives and I realize… I’ve been blogging for two years! I am quite impressed I’ve done it for so long. Huda introduced me and I did it to write because though I fancied myself a writer I never really… wrote. I started with an audience of two (give or take a few) and sporadic posts but it helped me put “pen to paper” more than before and better express myself in words. And then… I’m not sure how or why, but somehow more people started reading… and slowly I readin about them. Somehow in the course of these two years a community formed. A community of people most of whom I’ve never met. Its a satisfying feeling to connect through one’s thoughts and ideas with others particularly when I’m so busy in my daily life that its hard to sometimes get that communication as easily and frequently as I’d prefer.
So on this two year anniversary I have a small, teeny tiny favor to ask you. I’ve been curious, how and when did you come across this small plot of land in the internet world? Did you google over, link over? What makes you come back every now and then and check in? Is there any particular thing you like to read more/less about? And a special request for the “lurkers” (internet lingo for quiet readers who dont leave comments), I see you! I know you’re out there but y’all stay pretty quiet. Who you be? Where you from? How/When’d you come here too?
Please share, pretty please?
