This Blog: 5 Years!

Would you believe it, but my blog is five years old today?

Yes, I wrote my very first post on November 29, 2004. And it was about... weight loss. Not entirely shocking, as that was the subject of my entire blog for quite some time. It's been an interesting 5 years, I suppose. And my blog has evolved quite a bit. Admittedly, for about the first year and I half, I truly had no idea what to write about, and sometimes I was just writing to fill space. However, starting marathon training and doing things with scuba diving, etc, have given me more topics and I think the blog has really matured into something good.

I would like to thank you, all of my lovely readers, for being here and reading what I have to say. When I started, I really didn't have anything to say, and no one was watching. Now, I get something like 50-60 readers a day, and I have about 30 people that follow me in RSS. That's not exactly Consumerist, but it's still a lot for a blog that combines running and scuba diving and personal stuff... Not exactly stuff that goes together.

So, happy fifth birthday to "Somewhere in the Sun," formerly "Deep and Slightly Random Thoughts..." :)

I've learned not to say quite so much about personal things... It's easier to write about everything when you think no one's reading! I've pulled back slowly over time.

And, I try not to post about other people's news. If someone is pregnant or getting married or graduated from dental school or whatever, I don't post it here. That's what other peoples' blogs are for, and at some point I got really strict about that...
