I've Been Blogging for 10 Years? How Did That Happen?



I remember so clearly that Sunday afternoon when I sat down, filled with nervous excitement, and figured out Blogger well enough to write my first post.

Fittingly enough it was a quote about St. Joseph and work as a spiritual act. I say fittingly enough because over the years I have leaned heavily on sharing quotes about living our faith in everyday life. St. Joseph, who guided Jesus through his first years of everyday life, is a perfect saint to have helped me launch such an endeavor.

I don't have any grand thoughts on this anniversary, perhaps because it just struck me a little while ago that I should see when it was in May that I began blogging. And it was 10 years ago today! What're the odds?

I can say that I have enjoyed it a lot. Blogging continues to bring me new friends, new insights, open doors for God to be present in my life. And what can be better than that? Not much, really!

Many thanks to those who take the time to drop by, and even more thanks to those who comment. I love you all! Now, let's all get some cake!

  4. Happy Blogiversary, I remember the birth of this blog so well and have enjoyed the journey. In your honor, (well, okay- my family happens to be celebrating a birthday-) you should know that your cake recipes are always requested. Today, buttermilk chocolate cake for my ten year old Thomas Joseph. (April 21- celebrations can last a bit longer, no?)

  9. Thank you! Yours was one of the first blogs I discovered. I couldn't resist the title. Little did I suspect how much the blogiverse would help me keep the faith when I became a Catholic in 2006 and throughout the various trials that have ensued. I'm sure you have touched many lives in addition to mine. I love your perspective. Please keep it going.
