When You've Hooked Him Hold Him Fast

Good advice that I am happy to be taking! When I first saw the name of this tune, I immediately thought of Richard and how we 'hooked' each other... and how completely my life is wrapped up with his. I know that may sound 'old fashioned' and I suppose in some ways it is. I have friends who have been having a hard time in their marriages and relationships, and I have had my share of heartache in that department. But, my experience and observations seem to support this post's title... hold him fast. I'd add, to emphasize the point, 'and don't let go no matter how bumpy the ride!'. I realize how invested I am in the life we've started building together, and in all the plans and dreams we conjure up daily for our future. And even more important is finding time to daily share our joys with one another.

Today starts my second year of blogging! Posting my thoughts and activities started out as an experiment, sort of an on-line newsletter to share with family and friends. Over this past year, blogging has become a regular part of my life, a way to stay connected with those I see often, as well as those people who live far away. There have been a few times when I've wondered if anyone reads the posts, and that has given me the opportunity to realize that I also do it for myself. Blogging is fun, easy, fast, and provides a creative outlet for my thoughts. If you haven't blogged before, try it... you may like it :) On the flip side, I LOVE reading blogs. I've flagged a few that I read fairly regularly, some are people I've never met (and probably never will), and of course, I'm a big fan of since 11 among others.
What is your impression of blogging, either as a blogger or a reader?

I think you have large following of regular readers who have incorporated a daily reading of your "life" into their routine. I know that reading it is one of the highlights of my day!
