Obviously with the first day of September coming up in two days time we're closing in on a depressing but important milestone that sees the end of Summer and the beginning of Autumn (or Fall for my American friends) but like myself I'm guessing not many people realised that I actually passed an important milestone myself 13 days ago...
I really should stop with the dramatic interlude because if you read the title first you'll already know that 13 days ago marked my two year anniversary of blogging over here and I think that it's a big landmark, despite the fact that for some reason I didn't actually realise that myself. I don't think I'd have realised it at all if my blogging friend Damien hadn't written this post about celebrating his two year anniversary recently which reminded me that since I'd joined Blogger at the same sort of time as Damien that my anniversary must have came up as well which turned out to be right.
It's crazy that two years have passed since I opened this blog, that also means that I've actually been following and commenting on some people's blogs for at least a year and a half and possibly soon to be two years and that's incredible. I'm blessed to have met so many lovely people and had some amazing commenters on my blog over the years. Some people have came and went after touching my life in various aspects and others who have done the same are still here and I love you guys for that.
This blog has seen me write about tooth pain over ten times, it's seen me join university, leave university, be unemployed for eight months then finding work again. It's seen me write about how my grandmother fell ill and eventually about her passing in February, it's seen me complain about girls, do various features which all seemed to not last very long, it's documented some of the lowest moments of my life and also some of the happiest. It's seen me fall back into addiction to tramadol and then claw myself out of it time and time again and it's seen me post countless links to my Twitter account @heathyheath_ in the hope that some extra people will follow me again and again.
I owe this blog a lot because it's given me a chance to write and to vent for free and I'm so appreciative for that. I hope to continue doing the same for the considerable future too. My passion for writing may and does wane at times but even if it got to the point I was posting once every three months I'd still always be around to keep up to date with the people I follow because they're important to me and I love their blogs. I've written 444 posts on here though and like I've said I get a real rush from it so don't worry about me leaving any time soon. 444 posts is a lot of time spent writing and if I had that much passion for writing in general then my life probably would be in a much better position than it is now. Pretty exciting that at some point in the future, probably in 2014 I'll be writing my 500th post and then probably in 2017 my 1000th but that's another story for another time.
But anyway that's my dedication post to my own creation (which sounds egotistical haha) finished off with and like I say thank you. Because without my readers, without seeing that now over 60,000 people have viewed my blog and without my lovely commenters then I probably wouldn't have stuck around so long so thank you for everything guys.
