Five years of blogging

Once upon a time, five years ago in 2014, I started this blog to talk about the trials and tribulations of being an aspiring author. Five years doesn’t seem like a long time in retrospect. In some ways, it feels like a week ago I started this little project. In other ways, it feels like a lifetime ago. This, I think is more akin to the truth, because I am not who I was when I started this. In some ways, my life has become much harder. Some people were walking this Earth at the start of this who aren’t there anymore. Some people were in my life who aren’t around anymore.

In other ways, my life has become much better. I attribute that, largely, to making creativity a central part of my life. And a big part of that has been sharing this blog with all of you.

For the last five years, I’ve had a self-imposed deadline, the best kind for an Upholder like myself. I’ve shown up here, on PBW, twice a week, to share something with the world.

With you.

And the best part is, you showed up too. You, all of you reading this, showed up. You helped keep me accountable, made me feel heard. And I can’t thank you enough for that. 

I’ve had such a great time over the last five years. Here’s to many, many more to come.
