Flashback Friday #1


For the summer months of June and July I decided to do a "Flashback Friday" every Friday. I've been blogging since 2007 and I've had a lot of random posts in that time, so I decided to go back and re-post some of my favorite and popular (according to stats) posts.

I will also probably give some of my thoughts before the post, but I will leave the posts exactly as they were entered into blogger. Typos and all! :-)

Here it is, Flashback Friday #1:


This post is neither a favorite nor popular post but it is my very first post so I decided to start with it. I will never EVER understand why I chose a picture of myself holding a stick as my entry picture into the world of blogging other than the fact that I thought only friends and family would read this thing. But still....it makes no sense. I guess it does fit into my weird/random personality though. I had no idea how many thoughts, emotions and memories I would spill onto these blank blogger pages. I also had no idea that I would actually form real friendships through blogging. It all began with a  stick:





Hello,

Well I did it! I entered the world of Blogging!
I knew it would happen eventually - I'm such a sucker for these things!
Now, You may be wondering why exactly I have done this:
Let me explain - I don't really have a reason for doing it - I just though it would be something fun to do.
I have graduated college and I am now at the age where my friends and family are spread out in various cities. So I thought this would be a good way to keep in touch!
My hope is that you will go up to the upper right hand corner and click 'create blog' and start your own blog - that way I can keep up with your life.
Now I know that not all of you will do this (Jodi) but I am counting on some of my friends to join me in this adventure (Jayma - I know I can count on you)

In the mission statement of many church's they state something along the lines of 'Sharing Life with Others' Well that is what I want to accomplish through this blog - I want to share my life with you - and I hope you will do the same for me.
Even if you don't want to create a blog - you can check back here and leave me comments -
Believe me! This is just the beginning of all the fun! I am excited!
