This is my 500th post on my blog. Not only that but it is right around the 4 year marker for writing here. It was interesting how I got started; at the time, I was taking some college classes, one of which was an English writing class. My professor said that I should look into getting a degree is English as she really enjoyed my writing. She said I have a "unique voice is writing", my step brother (also an English teacher) has said the same thing and I am not quite sure I even know what it means.
My professor said she would really like to see me write more. I wrote a few things for the school paper but nothing significant. One day, after class, she showed me her blog. It was the first time I ever read a blog. I was living with Jamie at the time and she had just started a blog to sell some of her artwork. From there, I made my first post.
I remember posting it and feeling like I would not be likely to ever post again. I felt like it would be unlikely that anyone would read it and that there was not much of a point. Even now, I am not sure what kept me posting but I did.
Writing has kept me focused over the years. I think it has certainly helped me eat better and motivated me to cook more often. It has occasionally felt like a chore but overall has been a real joy. Happy 500th post to me and my blog! No signs of stopping!
In honor of my milestone achievement, I made myself a layered strawberry cake! Another testament to my struggling to improve baking skills. It was a great bedtime snack though!
