...I started adding categories to my posts last week as a way to keep myself more organized.
And I realized I've been blogging since 2005. I have written 1,099 posts (this will be my 1,100th post) and received 10,468 comments. Here's my first post. Pretty thought-provoking, right? Sad thing is that none of the people I linked to in that initial post even blog any more.
So why do I?
I've said often that I have an awful memory. Which I recently found out could be linked to my thyroid disorder. I've learned I can blame almost everything on my thyroid disorder, including hair loss, cold feet, rainy days, the world economy, and my scatter brain.
Back to my awful memory. This blog has very much become my memory keeper. And I love it because of that. But I have no niche. My family reads, and so do some of my oldest friends. But why do you come here?
I am not a mommy blogger, I don't think.
I am not a decorating or home improvement blogger, I don't think.
I am definitely not a lifestyle blogger.
I am not a scrapbooking blogger, I don't think.
I go weeks without having anything to say and then have days where I could write five posts.
I don't have advertising on my sidebars because no one has ever asked me to advertise there. Why would they?
I've never been up for a blogging award, although maybe if I keep at it someday I'll win award for oldest blog EVER. Now there's something to engrave on your tombstone. Laura Kurz. Wife. Mother. Daughter. Oldest blog in existence.
I try to keep things light, but I worry every day about my mom's cancer, my son's talking, my daughter's torticolis. I miss my dog, my grandfather, my job, my furniture. This morning I put a stamp on an envelope upside down and backwards. Figure that one out.
Thanks for reading. Thanks for sticking with me.
