Time Travel

So, I was feeling a bit nostalgic today and sifted through my old blog posts.  I can't believe that in July it will be five years since I joined blogspot.

It was fun to discover this post that I wrote four years, five months, and four days ago, and now to know how it turned out:

It was also fun to see what has since happened with some of my early commenters: Amber Scott and Karen Weirich (aka Devin McKee) hadn't as yet been published, and Cynthia Eden was still mainly with small e-pubs, and I don't believe as yet had her first NY contract. Now look at them!  Edie Ramer and Michelle Diener, too - look at them go!

If you've been blogging for a while, see what some of your oldest posts were and what you would tell yourself now that you didn't know then.  I'd like to hear how it went. :)


  1. Thanks for the shout out! You're evolving, too, self-publishing your novellas. Don't you feel empowered?

    I don't usually look back, and right now I don't have time. Too much to do.

  2. I take the Wayback Machine to older posts on my blog periodically. It's good for perspective. And sometimes I find that I want to recycle on old essay for a new round of blog pals.

  3. Definitely an interesting exercise. I will have to try this once things settle down. I'm coming up on an anniversary pretty soon myself.

  4. Edie - I understand about being too busy!

    Travis - I found some old posts that I thought were worth revisiting as well. I look forward to seeing what you come up with.

    Charles - Happy "Blogiversary". :)


Say what you will...
