Today's assignment is a fun one! I get to re-post my very first blog post! I did my very first post on February 6, 2010. Here it is:
I'm New to Blogging
I hope I'll find an audience for this blog. I guess time will tell. I'm currently a mom to a 6-year old high-functioning autistic girl. She's adorable. She's smart. She's quirky. Very quirky. I thought it would be a hoot to start a blog that celebrated that quirkiness. I hope to start a bulletin board soon as well so that I can hear adorable stories about your kids!
We began this special needs path relatively recently, so I still consider myself to be a newbie in this arena. My goal isn't to pass myself off as an expert (I'm clearly not). My goal is mostly to maintain my sense of humor that sometimes gets lost in the day-to-day grind! Enjoy--I hope!
Well, that was my first post--short and sweet! It's been over seven months since I did that post! (Yikes, time goes by fast!). Did I realize my goal yet? Well, I never got around to doing a bulletin board. I've been enjoying just blogging too much. Have I found an audience? Yes, I definitely have found one. Is it as big as I dreamed of when I started blogging? No! I think in my fantasies I'd be up to about 200,000 readers by now! But I have a group of readers who visit my blog everyday. I follow their blogs as well.
The biggest surprise about blogging is the community of bloggers! I've really enjoyed getting to know some of my fellow bloggers and hope to meet them in person some day!
