Three years. Sort of.

If you ignore that I took a break (or tried to quit you┬áthis blog), it’s been three years that I’ve been blogging here. Sort of.

Recapping this past year seems a bit silly since I was absent for much of it. And as I look back, I see a lot of personal sadness lurking in every corner. I suppose that’s appropriate, as I have a great deal of sadness lingering to this day.

But I don’t want to get into those things. I don’t even want to make this post a big deal because it’s not the post that’s been trapped inside my head for the past few weeks. This is not the post that I’m a bit afraid to write and publish.

This is just a post to say hey, look at that. It’s been three years since the call to write again became so strong that I couldn’t ignore it. Three years since I discovered the marvelous WoW blogging community. I wouldn’t trade it for anything, even though at times it has been difficult and painful.

And here’s to my next year. I hope it shines a little brighter and with greater consistency.

    Gratz! Sometimes we have to take the lows to get to the highs. I think we need music about a Brighter Tomorrow or something…

      And now I’ve got the line about the sun coming out tomorrow running amok through my head. Which is always dangerous. For the song more than for me, since I tend to mentally rewrite songs to better suit my notions of proper hilarity.

    Congratulations on the 3 year mark. And thank you for being here for 3 years for us to enjoy. You may have been absent from this blog for a chunk of this past year, but you were never absent from the hearts of those of us who have adored you for years now.

    While I hate to think of you having lingering sadness (or sadness of any kind, ever) I do hope the post that’s trapped in your head makes it’s way to this space. One of the things I love most about your writing is the honesty and emotion.

    Here’s to the next 3 years and then many more after that. I hope to always be able to have a place to stalk you, regardless of the game. And I know I’m not the only one.

    Also, you may look back and see personal sadness but as I look back… I see my ass. And my ass is way scarier. :P (that was hilarious in my head, let’s hope it was hilarious to you).

    Happy belated blogiversary! Although I only pop into the comments occasionally, I’ve read and enjoyed your posts for quite some time (so long that I can’t remember when I started reading or even how I found my way here). I’m sorry this year hasn’t been the best for you, and I echo Elfi in hoping you’ll feel free to share your thoughts here if you think it will help you. Hooray for milestones and new beginnings!

      Thanks for the well-wishes! I’m glad to have people who have stuck around even though all my ups and downs and comings and goings. It means a very great deal to me to still see familiar faces after all of that. :)

      And as I told Elfi, I do think I’ll eventually put into words what is in my head. Talked it all over with At last night and that’s usually step one in trying to get it onto the page.
