I’m going back to May of 2009 when I celebrated my 2nd blogoversary. In this post I chose and explained my Appalachian Trail name, Lori Lavender Luz. And I did something Emily Post would abhor — I begged for presents. I asked visitors to my blog to let me know which of my posts had left an imprint on them and I turned the results into a Page in my navigation bar called Readers’ Choice. Those comments were the best. bloggy gifts. evah.
What has happened since then — what has changed? For one thing I’m less prolific with my blog posts. My first two years I averaged 18 posts a month. In the nearly 3 years that have followed, I’ve averaged 11 (much of my writing energy is going into a book.) My kids are now grade-schoolers with more independence and even bigger personalities (I wouldn’t have believed that possible back in 2009). And since then in my family circle I have experienced a severe accident, illness, life and death.
