A little known fact is that I've been writing this blog for almost four years. It will be four years in July 7. I was looking back through old posts and laughing to myself because I didn't know what the hell I was doing when I first started this thing. (No need to look back, it's not too pretty.) My friends and family didn't understand it and then others still share how "they don't have time for something like that" when I share I'm a blogger.
Through this little domain, I've met some fantastic people all over the US and in Cleveland who I never would have met otherwise. The funny thing is a lot of us are more alike then we know and even have similar careers whether it's in marketing, advertising or public relations.
Having a blog always felt somewhat natural to me. Maybe because I had a pen pal (yes, seriously I did) when I was kid and have always wrote down my thoughts in some way. Way back when it was in a stylish diary complete with a key so my mom couldn't get into it.

I then graduated to adult journals because having something with a key and looking like it was taken out of the Babysitter's Club didn't seem so appropriate anymore, you know?
|Something like this fleur-de-lis one|
|Or this one that screams "I'll never get lost"|
Do you keep a journal or use your blog to blast out your thoughts?
