Dear 500 days of blogging,
On October 1st, 2010, a journey began. It didn’t have much direction, but nevertheless it commenced. What began as a way to document my transition into the real world has turned into 500 letters. This endeavor still doesn’t have much direction, but lack of direction has almost become its identity. Different subjects and recipients addressed daily but always written in the form of a letter. This keeps writing fresh for me and reading exciting for you.
In my first post I flippantly mentioned that hopefully this journey would “become more and more valuable” with time. The value you have played in my life is unexplainable. A passion for writing has been unlocked inside me. A chronicling of memories has been kept. Countless lessons have been learned that will hopefully stick with me more because I wrote them down. Celebrations and mournings, lives and deaths, elations and frustrations and so much more have all been experienced with followers along the way. A testament of faithfulness and commitment has been documented and proven possible in my world. Seriously, you have been invaluable.
I never dreamed you’d last for 500 days. I never dreamed I’d enjoy you as much as I do. I never dreamed I’d have the opportunity to encourage, challenge and do life with readers along the way. Sometimes our realities exceed our dreams. What began as a mostly selfish endeavor has turned into so much more, and for that I am truly thankful.
500 letters. One venue. 500 days. One blog. 500 recipients. One purpose: to put this little thing we call life into eternal perspective and to laugh along the way.
Looking forward to what lies ahead,
Lindsay, the lover of letters
I honestly am blown away that I am posting this. 500. Monumental moment in my world! What’s one of the most monumental things you’ve ever done?!
