Has it really been that long? This past weekend I celebrated the 10th anniversary of Don’t Blink. That’s right, I wrote my first blog post a decade ago. Nearly 2,000 blog posts later and an early switch from Blogger to WordPress, Don’t Blink is still going strong.
I started my own blog because I admired the blogs of some other people I knew. I also wanted to write for fun and I wanted a cool way to keep track of my life experiences. Did I ever envision it lasting for so long? No, I don’t think so.
With that said, I feel like I could walk away from this blog today. Reaching the 10-year milestone seems like a respectable time to retire from blogging. But I also identified other “respectable times” to call it quits when I got married, had a baby, and then had another baby. All of those times I continued to write. After some consideration, I will be authoring this blog at the very least through the rest of 2021.
In celebration of Don’t Blink’s 10th anniversary, I will be writing a couple special blog posts to commemorate the occasion. A little later in the month I will countdown Don’t Blink’s top 10 most-viewed blog posts followed by my personal top 10 blog posts. It will be a nice walk down memory lane as I reflect on some of the best content over the years. I hope you will check them out.
I also hope that you will share your own personal favorite Don’t Blink blog posts with me. If there is something I wrote that resonated with you or made you laugh, feel free to share it with me.
Although I have always maintained that I write my blog first and foremost for myself, I am so thankful for my loyal readers over the years. You have supported and motivated me and I can’t thank you enough. I still have blog posts left in the tank so I hope you continue to embark on this Don’t Blink journey with me. Have a wonderful week! Don’t Blink.
