30 Days of Me - Day 12

How You Found Out About Blogger And Why You Made One

One day, sometime in 2006 my girlfriend RP asked me if I had looked at a particular blog. I think I sat there like a deer in the headlights and thought to myself, what the hell is a blog? She explained it was an online journal of sorts. I thought it was a bit odd, but also interested and immediately started reading LJC FYI. I was hooked. I thought Jenny was amazing, creative, adorable and I loved checking into her blog daily to see what she had going on. I've always liked to write myself and though about starting one up as well. I tried a couple times and failed. I'd do one entry and never do another. Finally, on September 17th 2006 I started again. I wrote about corn. I somehow filled the rest of the month with a bunch of other ridiculous posts. I have family all over the United States and thought it was a great way to keep them posted on what was going on. Now, almost FOUR YEARS's still going!

There have been many times I've wanted to throw in the mouse. When I hurt my knee I figured that was the end of Pillsplace. I was going to be on the couch for a very long time, what the heck would I tell people about? I actually think it was that time that I got better at what I was doing. I had to be creative and to be honest...the blog was my doorway to the outside world. I couldn't drive and rarely got to leave the couch and my blog and the other blogs I found kept me sane.

It's hard to blog and I know sometimes I write about ridiculous things. I'll never be Dooce or The Pioneer Woman. I'm just Pill and I appreciate you taking the time to read. I think a big celebration is in order on the 17th! Oh, and guess what? I'm not going to put a picture on this there!

I'm not sure when I started reading your blog, but I don't think it was long after you started and I know that I had gone back and read from the beginning, so I am proud to say that I have been following your blog, every post for nearly 4 years! =) Never stop! Have you made your blog into a book yet??? (I did tell you about blog2print, right?
