Today is my 7th anniversary of starting this blog. When I started, I didn’t really think that I would still be doing almost daily updates 7 years later. Sometimes I feel like blogging is a lonely sport because even though I know I have a number of dedicated fans, it sometimes feels like I’m talking to no one. But also, sometimes I feel like I’m talking to everyone in the sense that I do censor myself, I don’t talk a lot about my true fears and frustrations, of which there are many. Also, as we’ve become busier, I feel like the blog represents something like 0.1% of what I’m dealing with and thinking of each day. Also, with the advent of Facebook, sometimes I feel like personal blogging has become irrelevant, that the blogs of note are all big, commercial or sponsored blogs.
Many times in the past year, I’ve thought about stopping simply because I have nothing to say, I usually stop for a few days, and then I start up again. I didn’t know 7 years ago that I’d be here today, I wonder where I’ll be in 7 more years? Will I still be at Just Regular Folks? I don’t know. I’ll just have to wait and find out.
