I was thinking back and realized I have now been "blogging" for five years. I don't know if I would consider what I do actually blogging, since it's more like I very sporadically post random comments or stories. (Though I guess in some ways that is the definition of a blog. Hmm...) Anyway, I don't think I've really stuck with any other "hobby" this long (except gymnastics). I don't even know if the infrequency with which I post allows me to consider this an active hobby. However, despite my lack of posting, I do read a lot of blogs still. So that means I'm active in some ways.
Anyway, that was a ramble. When I started this I was in the middle of high school. Now I'm almost done with college. I find it interesting that both myself, and the owners of the other blogs I read, are in such different places now than they used to be. (Well, obviously. Five years is a good while!) Taking the risk of sounding like a stalker for making these comments, I think it's cool just to watch how everyone's lives have changed over the five or six years I've been reading their blogs. To give examples of two people who I know might actually read this, Troy
used to be in school (I think), and now he's working and married
used to work/own/run a day care center, and now has stopped that to go to school to become a veterinarian. (Details may be incorrect.)
I just think that the changes are neat, and the existence of blogs, as little windows into other peoples' lives is a wonderful tool created to open up our eyes to more parts of the world, and more citizens of the world, than we would have previously been privy to.
