I really can't figure out what might be interesting to say about this. Four years ago today I began blogging at "My Quality Day."
However... before that I blogged a bit at "Sharkbytes: Niblets from the Shark" beginning in November of 2007.
However... before that I blogged at Xanga, under the same title, since May 14, 2004. That means I've been blabbing somewhat publicly for over eight years!
It wasn't until "My Quality Day" was launched that I began to do a regular daily entry.
It would be a monumental task to figure out what my absolute favorite posts are. But, here are a few fun ones:
On Xanga, June 7, 2004 is fun
The Shark's Wisdom Tooth is definitely one of my favorites.
One milestone is the day we picked up the 5000 copies of North Country Cache from the printer. That's on July 30, 2005
From the blogger "Niblets", Confessions of an Acetylcholine Junkie was one of my early newspaper columns, and defines me pretty well.
On MQD, there are 1473 posts to choose from. Yikes! I don't think I can even begin to pick my favorites, or the best, or blah, blah, blah.
See the Video is the news video of the day I completed the final miles of the North Country Trail. That's one of the defining milestones of my life.
And I think that's enough!
No big deal if you don't want to read extra stuff. I think maybe this blogoversary is more about me realizing how much I've changed since 2004. Back then I was still working on hiking the North Country Trail. I was still writing my first book. Maggie was much younger (weren't we all?). Since then, in a small pond of trail people and friends, I've become something of a big public fish. OK, maybe a medium-sized public fish.
I'm now writing a monthly newspaper column, and am working on my fourth mystery, and the sequel to NCC, which will be called North Country Quest.
Through "My Quality Day" I've made a number of friends, around the world! And I've even met a few of you in person.
Thanks for celebrating with me. If there is an entry at MQD that was memorable for you, it would be fun if you mentioned it in a comment.
Most of all, thank you for reading! A writer without readers is lonely indeed.
