I get to be quite meta in my post today, because the picture that I will show you is a picture from “behind the curtain.” And it’s yet another annoying formatting thing, that seems to come up periodically on my blog… contrast “Beep-beep-boop” or “Reader interface.”
As a blogger, though I enjoy writing posts, I also enjoy reading other bloggers’ posts.
However, I put reading others’ posts on a much lower pedestal among my other hobby activities, and unless I am in a sequence of scheduled posts (e.g. M.A.P.L.E.), blogging sometimes takes a lower rung on my list of priorities.
Eh… it also doesn’t help that I was moving this week, which caused my e-mail box to overflow with links to blog posts, since I use e-mail subscriptions for most of the blogs that I read.
It’s that time again! Right after I got back from Birthright in 2011, I signed up for a blog on WordPress, with the goal of sharing my journals, not only from the trip, but also other thoughts. Today is the “Wood Anniversary” (i.e., fifth anniversary) of the blog! (Hooray!)
Thus, just as I reflected on my Israel trip during the last 10 days, I might as well reflect on my blogging journey through the last 5 years.
In the blogosphere… or at least in the Bloglovin’ part of the world, sometimes I think that I am quite an outsider. I fit some of the common demographics of bloggers, and am outside some of the other demographics. This post is a quick reflection on that. (I’d like to keep my posts briefer than before, unless I have a pre-meditated post.)
My blog posts during this weekend have been quite short, including Saturday’s “Not up to snuff” post, where I threw together a post basically saying that it was Memorial Day weekend. The only reason that I made such a sad post was the fact that I didn’t want to “fail” my M.A.P.L.E. challenge.
