One year of blogging...almost

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

About eleven months ago, I started posting on this blog. I was a little nervous about starting a blog and posting my writings this way.

Blogging has become a joke to some people, a sign of vanity and self-absorption in the hands of others.

In some ways I feel let down by falling short of my lofty goals. I have not built the community I set out to create. I have not made the new blog header I started to code. I have not written half the stories I set out to publish.

Good things have happened as well. I have made contact with people I never would have met if I had not signed up for that Blogger account that January evening over eleven months ago. I have rediscovered the joy of writing again, the act of spontaneously typing away to see what takes shape.

I have a notebook of stories and scribbles yet to be made into blog entries. I had hoped to put them live by now, but real life got in the way.

A new year begins in a few weeks, I can start anew then. I have walked away from this blog several times this year. Sooner or later I press the shortcut on my toolbar and fire up the blogger dashboard. My blog goes quiet not because I don't have anything to write about (I feel burdened at times because I have too much to write about), but because I'm off doing other things and the time to blog escapes me.

So far, I have always returned.

Today there was announcement that NASA wants to build a lunar base by 2024. What will our world be like by 2024? Many have fears that humans won't make it that far.

I can't predict or control the future, but someone close to me said our future is created one year at a time, one day at time, one step at a time.

One year has passed. I'm still here. NASA has big plans for the future.

So do I.
