Catch Up Posts: Week 1
Since I was late to the party for Ginger's Bring Back the Words link-ups, I decided to go back and do a catch up post for the prompts that I missed. Here we go!
Week 1 Prompt 1: Why’d you start blogging?
I originally started blogging some time in 2005 when I moved to Texas because I thought it would be a great way to let my family and friends back home know what was going on with us. I closed that blog and didn't save any of the posts unfortunately so I can't show what I posted back then. This makes me sad because we did some fun stuff when we first moved and it was all documented there. Then I started blogging on MySpace (ha!) when they added that feature. I moved those posts over here after I setup this blog. I decided to setup this blog because I like writing and, while I am not super consistent with it, I love having the option to get my thoughts on to paper so to speak.
Week 1 Prompt 2: What’s the best decision you ever made?
Definitely moving to Austin. I have talked about it before but it is worth saying again. My life wouldn't be what it is today if I hadn't made that decision. It was scary and totally took me out of my comfort zone but it was so worth it. I met Chris because I moved here and I have Jackson because of that. My career also really took off as a result of moving to Austin. So as hard as it was not to move home after the divorce, I definitely think I made the right decision.
