2 Year Blogiversary!

June 22, 2008. That is the day of my very first blog post, the day Not A Girl, Not Yet A Woman (the blog) was born. Two years later, here it is, still alive and kicking. I thought a lot about how to celebrate this blogiverasry. I mean, two years, that's kind of a big deal, right?! So I wanted to give a proper celebration.

Some people, I know, do giveaways for their blogiversary, but in two years this blog has never had a single giveaway so I'm not about to start now! I didn't want to re-cap the year(s) because, well, if you've been reading, you already know it all.

I thought a lot about what "good" bloggers would do. A "good" blogger would have some big celebration planned maybe link to a few blogs. Definitely make you laugh. They would definitely not wait until 9:00 the day of their blogiversary to publish their post. But then I came to my senses got over it and realized, (warning, I'm getting deep here) I am me. Just me. I'm not a queen blogger, I'm not a blog celebrity  (or any kind of celebrity) or anything, and that's ok. Because all I can be is my version of greatness, and if I'm not a "good" blogger by some standards, well oh well.

Ok, off my soapbox now. This blog sure has changed since the early days. I like to think that my blog grows as I grow. As I mature, my blog matures. This past year, my blog changed in a way I never anticipated that it would. When my sister was diagnosed with cancer in the fall, this became my outlet to process what I was feeling. I am so thankful I had this forum to express myself and on top of that, I had all of you, people who I wouldn't have "known" otherwise, praying for her! And that makes it all worth it! :)

So without being cliche, I just wanna say two years ago I had no idea what blogging could be! I just wanted to journal the transition from high school to college, and I did that but also so mcuh more! Thank you to those of you who read this blog, my bloggy friends, because you all inspire me with your creativity, and your kindness overwhelms me. (sorry, I didn't mean to get so sappy!)

Since it is a two year anniversary, I'm gonna spread this out over a couple days. This is installment one, installment two will be a little lighter since this was so sappy!!

Now, I am throwing myself a party here on my blog in honor of my blogiversary. And any good party has a guest book right?! So in honor of my blogiversary, I would like my followers and readers to comment, therefore signing the "guestbook". I am toying with some ideas for the 2nd installment of this blogiversary to get my blog friends to get to know each other, so make sure you come back and check that out!

Thank you for following me through my blog journey! I sure have come a long way since day 1...
