Yesterday was the twelfth anniversary of my starting this blog. The fact that I couldn't be arsed to write a post that day probably tells you everything you need to know about my current dedication to blogging.
I'm not shutting down the blog any time in the foreseeable future, but it's clear that my personal blogging era has come and gone. I'm also probably through with blogging conferences, but I won't say that for sure because they're still a great reason to go see my bloggy friends.
Even if I only post once in a great while, the fact remains that blogging has had an enormous impact on my life. It's introduced me to people all over the world who are wonderful and fascinating and nice. It's taken me to places I would never have visited otherwise. It's the reason I'm part of many of the social media groups where I spend most of my time now.
So here's to Average Jane, the blog and the social media persona that has served me so well. Let's see if my 13th year holds some interesting new luck.
