I Am Twelve!

A dozen eggs, donuts, roses. I can't believe that this blog, "Blob", this online diary about my bookish life is now twelve years old.

I'm really glad I started blogging all those years ago.  It's helped my reading mind immensely.  When I try to recall items on my reading lists prior to 2004, there are so many vague impressions, wispy as smoke and even more frustrating, total non-recall.

Blogging concentrated me beautifully, especially when I met up with the book blogging community.  What is so important is not that you read me but that I read you. Thanks to you,  my TBR has no end, and that's the way I like it. I can't imagine life without a blog anymore, even though I'm not exactly prolific. Actually, I'm going to try to work on my productivity more as Blob segues into his adolescent years.  I try to remind myself that short bursts are okay, and it is possible to revisit and refine. No matter how I proceed, I will continue to show up.

Happy blogiversary to me!  How old is your blog?  Who has been around longer than me?

Congratulations on 12 great years. You must have been one of the book blog pioneers for sure. It's been a great run, and I look forward to keeping up with your book world for a long time to come.
