Happy Fourth Birthday, Unfinished Business!
I don’t have very much time to write a full-length blog post today, but I had to at least acknowledge the fact that this blog has been in existence for FOUR YEARS. I can hardly believe it. I know that I haven’t been keeping it up very well for the past year or so, but life is kind of getting in the way right now. (Case in point, just started an internship with the U-T San Diego AND was named EIC for my college paper. I’m just a little busy.)
So I started this blog when I was 14 years old. I was a very young Padres fan, obviously. This blog has been instrumental in my life in so many ways. That kind of sounds silly, but it’s true. Through this blog I learned how to touch-type, how to write and articulate what I was feeling, how to maintain something, how to gain followers and readers. I even joined Twitter because of this blog. It’s been a wonderful place for me to rant when the Padres were terrible (aren’t they always?), but we’ve had some good years too.
Thank you to everyone who has been a part of my blogging experience. I know there are a lot of people who I used to interact with all the time who I haven’t heard from in years. Others I’m still in contact with but they aren’t blogging much anymore either. Thank you also to the newer group of bloggers…people who I never really interacted with when I was younger but who I’m getting to know better now. Mostly my Twitter peeps. And thank you to my readers. Those who have been reading from the very beginning to those who are just starting.
It’s been an incredible four years.
Congratualtions, Kaity. I’ve only been writing on here for the past year+, but it’s been a blast, so I can imagine how big a part of your life this blog has been. I mean not gigantically huge, but I know that for me at least, I can’t imagine what the past year-and-a-half would have been like without it.
Congrats on your blog hitting the four year mark. I’m glad that MLBlogs had such a profound effect on your life, and writing. My blog will turn three here in July!!!
Root on Cameron Maybin for us at the Padres games, we met him when he played here in the minors and he was really nice to my kids.
