My Seventh Blogiversary
Today, The Life of LilMisBusy/Busy Since Birth, you are turning seven...
Okay, okay, I won't make this identical to my annual birthday letters for Hannah and Max. Though, it is tempting.
This blog is a bit like my third (often very neglected and therefore lucky it's just virtual) baby. I've often said, when telling people that I blog, that it's my third life, after my family and real work responsibilities. And at seven years strong, it is one of the longest-running commitments I've ever had. Busy Since Birth has had over 100,000 page views (though my spamming friends in Ukraine have had a good deal to do with that). Through this blog, I've made many new friendships and strengthened existing ones, I've had a platform to discuss issues I care about, I've had my writing featured elsewhere and now I'm producing a show. I honestly couldn't have predicted all of that when I began. I just wanted to share my story, and sometimes convince you to share yours with me.
Thanks to all of you who have been reading along the way. I'd love it if you'd take a moment to "de-lurk" and leave me a comment, like Busy Since Birth on Facebook, subscribe to the email updates or just in some way tell me you've been here.
Unless you're in Ukraine. I promise I won't be offended if you've all got better things to do than keep up with me.
