Not long before Christmas I got a “congratulations your blog is three years old” email from WordPress. I was busy and it didn’t really register at the time. But recently I realized that my “about” page is 3 years old and should be updated. Among other things I use a different camera now.
It is easy to decide you need to update something, but, at least for me, much harder to figure out what to say. An awful lot has changed since I started this blog. I am very much the same person, and interested in the same things, but the time of life I am in is shifting. Another thing that is shifting is that I feel more competent.
I have really grown through being exposed to the many voices in the WordPress community and also from trying to respond to the challenges prompts people post. Cee’s Compose Yourself course was a real boost to my skills, and I have read many other excellent articles and seen a lot of wonderful pictures that have helped me learn. Seeing how other people respond and think has helped me to find my own voice.
I’m still trying to figure out what to say on an “about” page but I do know that I want to say “Thank you!” to all of the bloggers on WordPress. This has been, and continues to be a rewarding experience.
