Yesterday marked my second anniversary blogging here on vox. The title refers to the number of posts that I’ve written during that time. Wow. That’s essentially one every-other-day for two years. I don’t think there is any other conclusion after having started from a “Let’s see what this is like” experiment, that that I’ve grown to like this stuff.
I did a little tag-archeology to look at what have been the top-10 most popular topics over the last two years – which I think is a pretty darn good summary of me:
San Diego – I like the town I live in
The Aerie – I like the house we moved into in the spring of 2007
Philadelphia Eagles – I love/hate them
Science – I don’t talk about work, but that doesn’t keep me from weighing on things I think are cool (or not-cool as the case may be).
Travel – we like going places
Piano – not as many posts as year-1, but its still going on and getting incrementally better!
Books – yep, always like to read
Family – usually traveling to them and receiving them as visitors, or reminiscing.
Happy Hour – I like a good drink
Moving – it pre-occupied the first 6 months of 2007, but that’s ok, I’m never moving again.
How’s year-2 been different than year-1? Mostly, I think it’s summed up before – I’ve grown to really like doing this – and rather than some sort of novelty, this has become an integral part of what I do on a day-to-day basis. And as such, the relationships formed here have become as real and important to me as those from other spheres of my life (school friends, work friends, and now blog-friends…). And like friends from other parts of life, you expect some to flourish and some to fade, and that’s ok.
So, from Hapalove (who was the first person to leave me a comment that I didn’t previously know IRL that’s still in my hood) to Cat (my newest neighbor from Oz), thanks for coming along with me. You're very much appreciated — You guys are the best!
