This morning I found an interesting new writers meme.
One of her writing prompts that interested me is the title to this post.
This had me going back to my very first blog. Which took some doing. Ive had several blogs over the last 3.5 years. My first friend and I dont blog to each other regularly anymore. In fact I dont think she is blogging anymore. However, we do say hi now and then on Facebook.
I sometimes visit the 2nd friend I had. She doesnt seem to answer my comments or visit me. Doesnt do much for a friendship.
I “meet” these friends though a Christian website we all were on. Its interesting looking back to my first blog. I was preggy with Our Little Man and finishing off my bachelor of early childhood education.
During the transition from my first blog to my 2nd one there seems to be a few months of posts missing. To the best of my knowledge I dont think Ive ever stopped blogging though. My 2nd blog seemed to allow me to make new friends. Not sure why or how. It was a bit more popular blog host. One explaination could be that over the years I have gone looking for more people to blog with.
Amy is a fellow New Zealander and we both blog and email regularly. She has 3 children, 1 being quite close in age to My Home Schooler. I find it interesting being her friend. Shes into retro things and she also blogs about places I know about like Auckland sometimes. These bring back memories of when I grew up there 🙂
Melany is from South Africa. I read her blog regularly. Her youngest is 2 months younger than Our Little Man. Its been interesting watching him growing up. I also enjoy reading about her older 2 boys and the achievements theyve had over the years. Melany is a keen photographer and I love looking at her photos 🙂
I am blessed to have these 2 wonderful bloggy friends and I look forward to many more years corresponding with them. I also value all the newer (prior to May 2006) friends I have made. I get such wonderful support, love and friendship from you all.
