Happy Blogoversary to Me!
My dear little blog is two years old today!!!
It seems like yesterday that I started this foolhardy venture of placing my spiritual musings on the internet for all the world to see (and two loyal readers to eventually find). Some of you late comers may not know that I did this after my first Jesuit retreat as an act of obedience to my director.
After having to spend a week listening to me read from my retreat journal, and laughing hysterically every time we met, he told me that it was a shame that I didn't share my spiritual insights with others. When I told him that I really didn't have a forum by which I could share, he recommended that I start a weblog, and thus Transcendental Musings was born August 1, 2004. So I suppose you could blame the Jesuits if you must.
In two years, according to my site meter nearly 10,000 hits have been made (probably a third of those are me checking back and making changes to the site) but even if you take out that number it still adds up to quite a few more hits than I ever would have expected.
I realized about a week ago that I have done a lot less spiritual writing in the last few months, which might have been due to the stress of my job transition, or other things that were going on in my life, but I hope to change that. I really do look forward to writing on my blog and sharing my journey of faith, and I have come to cherish the friendships I have made, even the ones who call me cupcake; and you know who you are.
I hope for many more years of happy blogging, because you see even if the site meter never registers another hit it sure is cheaper than therapy.
