Where are all my friends?

I have come back to blog many many times since the first time I started this blog. I have taken breaks and hiatus' but I have always come back. Recently I noticed in my blog roll that the people that I used to follow and comment on their blog haven't updated their blogs in months if not years. It begs me to ask, what happened to all my blogging people?

When blogging first started, I believe this had to be early in the 2000's everyone was doing it. I was afraid of putting myself out there at first, and thought I would follow a bunch of people and read what they wrote and commented, having my own was a scarey thing. I've said this many times but I started blogging in 2007. A friend, who was also a blogger, convinced me that writing out my thoughts would do me justice. I figured, eh why not. I took the leap of faith and did it, and boy oh boy I became hooked. The only issue was finding things to blog about. I was never concerned with gaining a following, though I later realized that I secretly wished that I had, I just wanted to free my mind of things. I first started blogging about relationships and boys that co-workers and other things that I found interesting. I would also go and read many others blogs.
I enjoyed doing that because it gave me a chance to get to know others through another avenue and then it also allowed me to see that I wasn't the only one who enjoyed sharing thoughts with the world.

Revol... no its Resol.. its actually the same thing.

Remember when you were a kid and people would ask what your new year resolution was and you would say, "Well my new year REVOLUTION is..." and then you'd get corrected that the word wasn't revolution but actually RESOLUTION. Remember that?


Well, anyway yeah never happened to me either. I heard it from my friend that, that was what used to happen to her and I didn't want to leave her out there thinking that it was only her that went through these issues, you know I was being supportive and what not.

Anyway, back to REVOLUTION and RESOLUTION. I was thinking about what I had proposed would be some resolutions for this year, and I also thought about the younger me who used to say revolution (yeah it was me), and wondered why  it couldn't be a revolution?

Was I wrong when I said I had a new year revolution? Do I not want to revolt against what I did the previous year and make a better me in the new year? The answer to all of these questions is definitely yes. I mean why wouldn't I want to be better than I was before? Isn't that the whole part of putting these things out in the atmosphere and also social media?

New Year.. New...

First off, HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! WOW,  I cannot believe that its already 2015! Time has flown by so quickly. I remember when I first wrote my entry onto this blog, it will be 8 years come this fall I think, well, I believe it was during the fall that I started this blog. Anyway, I am glad and thankful to see another year. I am grateful for all that has happened in 2014, because I know it is to prepare me for 2015.

I have gone many many years without making new year resolutions. I refuse from making them because I know that will go the first couple of weeks with my resolutions but then I will slack off and not even look back at what I had planned. This year though I feel like I should try one more time, I mean seriously try and make a conscious effort to get these resolutions accomplished. 

I have thought about this long and hard.  These things don't just come to you all willy nilly and boom that it. I really had to think about this, I asked myself some questions, things like: what is is that I really want to make happen,  what things are definitely in MY control for 2015?
