I just realized I’ve been blogging for 2 years now. My archived section goes all the way back to December 2005. I was a completely different person 2 years ago. Entirely different!!
In fact, the blog was started because I was reading a book called Domestic Tranquility by F. Carolyn Graglia. It’s a powerful book that traces the origins of the feminist movement and it is really one of my favorite reads because … well mainly because it’s written on such an intellectual level, quite frankly, and it “unpacks” feminism and “unpacking” issues is one of my favorite past times. I’m always asking, “But WHY is that the way it is, or the way I am, or the way you are??” So anyway….back to the book. I was reading the book one section at a time and then picking one element of that section and journaling something that really caught my attention. The articles I wrote were edited and then published on a prominent “reformed christian women’s website.” The articles were later removed, at my request, when we removed ourselves from a certain circle of influence. But I had archived the articles on this blog, as a way to archive them online somewhere and that is how the blogging got started!
No that’s not right. I had started another website. WomanhoodRevisted.org. Oh I had completely forgotten about that site! LOL! Talk about things you “believed in” but didn’t really believe in. I never felt like such a hypocrite until I put up that website!
Anyway I can’t believe 2 years have gone by since I started blogging. Seems like it was ages ago. And I just added up…and between all my blogs…which I’ve imported all into this 1 blog, I have 472 posts, not counting this one. That’s insane. That’s like….20 posts a month. Crazy.
Well Claire is waiting, patiently, for me to finish so we can go bake cookies with Dr. Tenniswood today! So I better go. And then I can take more photos and then have more on my computer to blog about…in the future….LOL!!
