Today is April 19th, and that means it’s my fifth blogiversary!
I think that Blue-Footed Musings has changed over the years. I wasn’t sure what the point was when I first started writing five years ago. Now the blog is primarily a repository for my photos of flowers and my letters to the children. I can think of no greater purpose, really, and so it will continue this way as long as I need it. And then maybe it will fit another purpose. Who knows?
There may be some small changes coming down the pike in the near future, though. I’m thinking about using a photo hosting site. While I do resize all of my photos before posting them, after five years even small photos will start to pile up. My husband has complained that backing up the data is getting to be a chore. Sorry!
A photo hosting site would also allow me to do a Photo of the Day, something I’ve been thinking about. When you carry a camera around as often as I do, you start to notice how some pictures just beautifully capture the essence of a particular day. I know other people who have done such projects and the consensus seems to be that the end product is worth all the work.
Also, as I’ve mentioned before, a five-year blogiversary seems like a fine time to print a copy of the blog in book form. There are quite a few websites that offer this service. I’m not familiar with any of them, so I’d be happy to get recommendations if you have any. While printing a copy has no immediate affect on the blog, there’s always the chance that seeing my words made into a book might inspire me in some way. I am always open to inspiration!
So anyway, Happy Blogiversary to me, and thanks to you for reading!
