I'd Like To Thank The Academy...Part Two

Five years ago today, I decided to start a blog.  I'd like to thank the academy was my first ever post

That was then, this is now.

If you'd told me then what my life would be like now, I woulda thought you insane. Certifiably loony. Cause no way could I ever have conceived back then what my life would look like now.

Blogging has changed my life in so many remarkable ways.  

All you guys over on my Colorado blogroll?  I met you thru my blog. You were all unknown to me 5 years ago. Now? I can't imagine my life without you in it.

Moving to Denver and knowing only 2 people (a former client and his realtor, who became my realtor) I was determined not to become a hermit. Since I worked from home at the time, I decided that blogging would be my 'gateway drug' to Denver and the friends I had yet to meet. Now?? I know and have met all but one of the bloggers under my CO Blogs heading.

In a way, I feel like I'm the poster chick for the good side of blogging. Cause there IS so much good that's come out of it.

All of you...every single one of you linked on the side...even if I've not met you IRL, you've enriched my life beyond belief. And I thank you for it.

For something that started as a lark, it's turned into a most fulfilling part of my life than I can't imagine living without.  I'm gushing, so forgive me.

It's just that if I'd never started blogging, I'd never have met you. There wouldn't have been a Kathyland...at least not an online place.

So thanks. To all of you...every last one. Even tho I can't begin to thank everyone personally, I do have a special word of thanks to Curt, the first blogger I met who inspired me to start my own blog. Curt, if and when I ever meet you IRL, I owe you a couple dozen beers...at least. And Pete, I'll include you in the deal.

Thanks for being a part of Kathyland.

Now go hug your blog and post something!
