Six years and running

Today is my birthday.  I got this gift from Rick at Rick's Picks because the saying is an ongoing joke between the two of us and I love it.  Incredibly thoughtful.  What is noteworthy about today is not so much that it is my birthday but that I have been blogging now for 6 years.  I can't believe it has been six years. 

I really do enjoy the process of blogging for many reasons.  I love the audience that reads me and comments.  Not only self rewarding but it is interesting to hear different points of views from all over the globe.  Blogging has taught me to be a much better writer.  It has kept me connected to the Internet industry.  It is also cathartic.  I try to do it daily and there is something nice about the constant.  I have met a variety of interesting people too. 

I want to say thank you too everyone out there for supporting me for the past six years.  At this point, I am on a roll.

    Why are there 9 million ways to contact people and it is still no easier to communicate? I have work phone numbers, home land line numbers, cell phone numbers, work email addresses and personal email addresses for my friends. Some use email as their primary mode of communication, so leaving a voice message is not the best way to reach them. Some rarely check email, or only work email and sending a message to their personal email address means delay. Calling their cell phone means I’m talking to my friends while they are walking, driving or eating. Remember when people didn’t answer the phone when they were busy? And how do I know if I need to cross the street to avoid the scary person talking to themselves or if it’s just someone talking on a cell phone with an ear piece? Sometimes, I do leave home without it (my cell phone, that is), so that I just can’t be reached. Don’t tell anyone, Gotham Gal. Happy Birthday. i love your blog.
