Yesterday marked a small mile-stone for me, and my blog~
I made it to 5-0-0 posts! in a ways it sounds like a ton...
when you think about every single posts that make up 500!!

Then it doesn't sound like that much when you think about the long-time bloggers that have been going at it for seven or eight years!~

I have loved blogging. It inspires me to be creative, and artistic~
I remember the very first blog I ever got on, I was amazed that there was such a thing as a b-l-o-g!! ;)

I have had mine for about 2 years. I had taken only a hand full of pictures when I first started. I wasn't really interested in photography a ton. But that year I got a camera for Christmas~ From then on I have lOvEd photography.

Like blogging, photography also inspires me to be creative, and artistic... It gives me a feeling of pleasure like nothing else does~

I think blogging has been really good for me. It has been kind of like my online journal.
It will be so much fun to be able to look back at old posts in the years to come, and see how much everyone has changed, and read about what was going on in our lives.

I never thought that I would enjoy it as much as I do. But I really, really do.

 It amazes me how many people have blogs!! I would LOVE to be able to read the very first blog post, e.v.e.r. Wouldn't it be so interesting? I wonder how many comments it got? :)

I used to be really worried about how many comments I got on each post. I would worry if my number of viewers would go down, or if I went a while without getting a new follower.
My mom would tell me, "Just treat your blog like your journal. Do it for yourself". I didn't really pay attention to the comment at the time, but now realize that it's a lot easier running it like that~!

Sure, I absolutely love getting comments, and new followers. It makes my day when I see a new face in my followers box, or if I get comments on a post~ But I can't judge how people like me by how many followers, or comments I get.

 I don't think that I anticipated getting so into this thing called blogging~
but I guess I did! ;)

I have "met" some really neat people. I love reading about peoples lives. You can find so much inspiration through people, and their blogs.

 I have felt like laughing, and crying when reading peoples blogs. It is like you are sitting down, and talking with them. Hearing what is going on in their life at the moment. They can really make you happy, or sad!! ;) believe me~

I have loved my journey in the blogging world so far, and am looking forward to the many posts to come!
Thank you for looking in on my life. It really means a lot to me~ I like knowing that I am getting to share my life with people. It is a lot of fun writing posts.

Thanks for following me up to 500 posts!
