You know how WordPress sends you a “your year in blogging” report every New Year’s Eve? If you don’t, they do, and it’s one of those fun infographicky scrolldown things that is meant to make you feel great about how popular your blog is. My 2013 in blogging was pretty dismal, as it turns out: “In 2013, there were 7 new posts, growing the total archive of this blog to 242 posts.” Wah-wahhh. I didn’t even manage one a month! Ah well, life happens. As you can see from my post of November 2013, I had a bit going on.
I aspire to be a somewhat better blogger this year, or at least even things out so I’m not an all-or-nothing sort when it comes to this here mirthmobile. There will be no shortage of exciting happenings and life lessons learned in 2014, since basically everyone I know is getting married and I am having a baby. Those enormous events aside, I also have kept a running list of things I’d like to post about, so theoretically I’ve got lots to say. We’ll see if I can make time to share my brilliant thoughts with you. (Oh, and we also just replaced our dear departed scanner, so you can count on more Old-Timey Tuesdays coming your way.)
Which brings me to now. I am at the end of Snowday No. 1 and headed into Snowday No. 2, which is really only a half snowday for me, since I have to head to Savannah for a work conference in the afternoon. Atlanta has had a rough day or two — one lady literally had a baby, delivered by her husband and a police officer, on the side of the snowy interstate in gridlock traffic en route to the hospital — and I think this is probably the best thing I’ve read about the situation in all the coverage I’ve seen. Meanwhile, the pets have been downright adorable (you can see thorough documentation of that fact on my instagram feed) and I continue to get larger and larger, as one does at 7 months pregnant.
