Once upon a time . . .

2 01 2009

When I started this blog in 2003, it was my one portal into the vast and then-mysterious realm of The Internets. I tip-toed sheepishly into a smallish corner and jotted little stories I wanted to remember and share. Then, much to my delight, a few people seemed to like them and left comments, which spurred me to share more.

Over the years the face and purpose of this blog has changed very little, but my presence here has become sadly sporadic. Now I jet between Facebook, Twitter, The Master’s Artist, and Just for Pics, but none of them can replace The View From Here. It’s like the cozy cottage I’ll always think of as “home” even after acquiring extensive properties in other bloggerhoods. Where else can I share episodes of My Dinner With Jacob Action Figures or transcribe George’s and my pillow-talk sessions (Rated R for Ridiculous)?

I miss this place. I don’t know if any of my old neighbors ever drop by any more, but I’m planning to sweep away the cobwebs, shake out the rugs, and throw the windows wide open again. Hopefully some will notice a light on and come back. Maybe I’ll make some new friends, too. No matter what, I’ll have a place to stash treasured memories.

Welcome, friends. It’s a brand new year. Here’s to music, dancing, laughter, a few tears, and lots and lots of stories.

Yes, Momzy! Keep posting! I’m going to try to breathe some life back into the cold, dead corpse that my livejournal has become.

I’ll enjoy reading whatever you have to write!
