Today is a monumental day! It’s my great-niece Kate’s first birthday (one of her presents was a new baby sister on December 30!), as well as my third blogiversary. Did you miss the parade that just marched by?
When I started the blog three years ago, at first I used it to try to get organized. In fact, Random Snippets & Apertures used to be called Get ’Er Done. But it was a lame attempt, which was no surprise given the fact that “Lazy” has seemed to be my middle name the past few years.
Before long I changed my blog’s name and focus. I finally started showcasing my photos and geared Random Snippets more towards my family. It definitely was a better fit.
Why do I blog five days a week? First, I’m a writer, and I love exercising my skills, always with an eye towards improving.
Second, I’m a photographer, and it’s nice having an outlet for my work.
Most of all, I see this blog as my legacy to my two precious sons. I plan to make each year into a book, so they can remember what it was like when they were growing up, and so they can read what I was thinking and what I believed in.
Let’s just hope they don’t conclude one thing:
That their mom loved snapping pix of flowers and insects as much as she did of them!
Thanks for joining me on Random Snippets & Apertures! Here’s to another year of fun and photos.
