I was scrolling through the archives the other day, recalling that I first started this blog in January 2006. It turned out it was the 11th of January, which makes today my third blogiversary!
I had no idea then that I'd still be going strong three years later, nor that I would have written 500 posts, nor how much I would enjoy capturing not only my thoughts and reflections about books (my original, stated purpose for beginning a blog) but also many slices of life and ordinary days.
From time to time I've considered changing the blog name to more accurately reflect what I write about...I guess you might say that something to do with the wider category of "stories" rather than just "books" would fit the bill. But it's hard to give up on a title I've kept for three years, and that Lewis quote I've kept in my profile since the very beginning still rings true to my heart.
For any of you who have read this blog for all three of its years (thank you, Erin, and perhaps others I don't know) and to any of you who have found it somewhere along the way and discovered something here that's been in any way encouraging to your heart, mind, or reading life, thank you. Please stay around for more ordinary stories from the very ordinary life of a thankful writer and reader.
