It’s my blog’s birthday!
Belated actually. She turned one on Sunday and I totally forgot about it. I guess if I was a guy, I’d make a bad husband too. But let me get straight to the speech.
It’s been awesome really. And as with all undertakings in my life, I’ve learned more than I have shared. But isn’t that the point? Because really, who says I am an authority in the subject of spinsterhood?
When you think about it, it’s your contributions and comments that make the blog what it is. That continuous discourse (and fights) we have are the very life of this blog. And even those who read and walk away to ponder, share, retweet my links or simply like the posts have been a continuous encouragement. To those who go further to reblog my posts or mention me in their various blogs, I’m certainly humbled.
It isn’t easy juggling this blog, another and an 8 to 5 (to sometimes midnight ) job that requires me to write 14.5 times more. There are days I ask myself, what was I thinking starting SS? And at that very moment when I go silent and concentrate on my day job at @nyakeruw shouts from the TL “Blog Woman. BLOG!!” Another source of encouragement.
It’s never about a lack of content. There’s always content no matter the subject. The task sometimes has been how to be original, rational (.., and funny) about such a sensitive subject as marriage and spinsterhood (without any experience in either). My drafts are good evidence of this conflict. If any of you bloggers out there have more drafts than published posts then you know what I mean.
Moving forward, and taking all these experiences in mind there are a number of changes that I’ll introduce in due time. Nothing fancy, but certainly provocative.
For now though.., raise your glasses with me!
