2 years ago today, I published my first post on this domain titled An Introduction, and it was just that. This wasn’t my first domain, I’ve been blogging off and on for a long time, before it was even called blogging. But I’ve always had a tendency to get bored, pick up and move on to someplace else within a short time. Something about Kid Things, though, has been different.
That difference has been you, the ones that stick around to read about us. You’ve cheered us on and laughed at my stupid jokes. You’ve become my friends.
I didn’t have any great intentions when I started this site. I just wanted something to do amidst a day of chasing kids that was just and only mine. A child can’t smear peanut butter on a piece of the internet, or tear it to pieces. They can delete it all if the right button is pressed, but thankfully that hasn’t happened. Yet. Let’s cross our fingers.
This site, though, is also for them, my children. I wanted someplace to share our stories. I wanted to write, but nothing too introspective or deep, though I’ve been through a lot in these 2 years. But just good fun that hopefully would find an audience. I’ve found more than that, though. I’ve found you, my dear readers. I’m sometimes a little down that my stats aren’t more impressive, especially when those who haven’t been around nearly as long are racking up incredible opportunities and I feel like the dork in the back of the gym at the high school dance going hey, what about me. But then there’s you. I wouldn’t trade the group I’ve found here for anything.
Thank you so much for reading and commenting, whether from the beginning or just recently.
