Yes, I’ve been blogging for longer than many of you have been alive (can I help it if my blog is really popular with the pre-Kindergarten crowd?).
You’ve seen me at my best, at my worst and… ummm… at my most middle.
You’ve seen me crow about my accomplishments.
You’ve seen me sulk about my setbacks.
Up in the clouds.
Down in the dumps.
You’ve excused my bad behavior and even worse jokes.
You’ve encouraged me to keep at it even when I’d rather throw in the not-sweated-on towel.
Your good advice has often kept me from going astray (how was I supposed to know that participating in a hot-dog-eating contest would make me gain weight?).
The blogging landscape has undergone quite a change since I started oh-so-long ago. Folks are more spread out, drawn to the twinkly lights of easier-to-digest media platforms.
But I’m pretty proud of the fact that I’m still here, plugging away.
And if I help just one person take one step closer to their healthy living goals, well… YES, THAT’S A PRETTY SUCKY RETURN ON MY TIME AND EFFORT.
But I’ll keep doing it anyway.
