My blog turned 1 this month. My inaugural post appeared on January 15, 2007!Reaching the one year mark is apparently a milestone in this medium. I've written 138 posts over the last 12 months.
WHAT I'VE LEARNED
Writing is a discipline. One that I've been struggling with in the last few months. I vow to get back on track as I start on this second year of blogging life.
It takes time to develop your voice. Looking back over the blog posts, I notice that I've been "all over the place" in some ways. It's funny to see what I wrote about a year ago. I think I'm still developing the voice of this blog. This next year I'll be writing about people's stories, discussing current topics in light of faith, and I'll throw in the odd "unrelated" piece.
Popular is not predictable. Some posts that I though would really hit-didn't. Others that were just fun posts were well read. Some people just come for the pictures I choose.
CHANGES AND ADVENTURES
This past year life has been exciting. I expect that this year will be full of adventures as well. As Semper Vita gains momentum there will be lots of stories, interesting events, and opportunities to learn and grow. I hope you'll stay tuned as we start a new year of blogging.
What have you enjoyed on this blog? What would you like to see more of? What are topics you'd want me to address?
