So I made it to my 200th post… When I first started blogging I never imagined that I would be around this long. I never imagined that blogging would be this addictive. I was so into blogging, I didn’t even realize when I made it to post 100… I was at post 114 and was like, dag… I missed my 100th post! LOL.
I started blogging back in 2005 when I was at my first job out of college. GTL was on the blog-scene so I decided to join him. Plus at the time, I was stressed about work and my at-the-time “roommate” and needed to vent. At that time, I was a lurker. I read the blogs of GTL friends and their friends… but never commented. Don’t know why… just never did.
Then one day I was on GTL’s page and saw a comment from our homie Kween… After that, it was a rap! I saw links on her page to D. Dot “the King” and that’s when I first got addicted to blogger. I switched jobs, and I was so bored at my new place of employment.. I mean I literally was on D. Dot’s page all day like it was a chat room. I had so much fun. That’s when I was first introduced to so many bloggers on my blogroll: Laa, Chele, BklynDiva, No1Special, Missy Mizz JJ and SanginDiva to name a few… these ladies were mad cool! Of course so many women in one area leads to drama… but not with these ladies… There were other chicks there in the “kingdom” that couldn’t stand me and Kween.. but as my blog says “Ask me if I care!”
From there I met so many other wonderful people by hitting up their blogrolls and comment sections… (Freaky Deaky, LadyNay, Royce’s Daughter, Organized Noise, Rob Mack, The Mistress) And to my surprise, other’s found me! Honey-Libra, Luvin’ Me, Thoughts of a Southern Gal, Yazmar… I was like “Wow! I’m interesting to someone!” LOL!
As time moved on and we got to know more about each other online, I had the pleasure of actually meeting a few of them in person: BklynDiva, Missy, G-Mo, Enigma, Dynasty, SomeOne, Honey-Libra, LadyNay, Laa, Organized Noise, and Cool AC. Hanging out with these folks was a lot of fun. So much fun that we plan to do it again real soon!
Blogging has helped me get through so many long, boring days at work. It has introduced me to so many wonderful people that I plan to keep in my life for a long time… And it all started here at Blogger.…
But now it’s time for me to say goodbye….
I’m not leaving for good… Just blogger. I gave up cursing so I can’t say how I really feel about this crappy blogsite… just know that I think it sucks monkey balls! LOL.
You can find me at a new location: http://itrynot2care.wordpress.com
I’m still trying not to care about people so much… but it’s still so hard! So everything is pretty much remaining the same (except the blogsite of course!) Update ya'll sites! I hope that if I decide to stick around another 200 posts… that you guys will stick with me :-)
