My very first post.

Hi guys, I am participating in the SITS Get Back to Blogging event.

Yesterday's prompt (yeah, I forgot): Re-upload the first post you ever wrote on your blog

I posted this on 9/15/09. A year ago tomorrow.

Well, I didn't want to lie

The other day, I posted a new tag line on Facebook (aka My Obsession). "Heléna is thinking about starting a blog. Because she's married. and that's what married people do." (It was an astoundingly accurate status. You know you are nodding in agreement.)

After that, I had no choice.

Kurt wasn't really happy. You'd think it was Santa Clause, the Tooth Fairy, or maybe this years stimulus plan: He just doesn't believe in it. Well, we will show him!

(Yup, I'm imagining me and the Easter Bunny marching off to save the economy. And then blogging about it.)

What I liked about this post:

It set the tone for my whole blog. I'd say it was a pretty good introduction into why I was blogging, and what kind of things I would be blogging about. It introduces the main cast (me and Kurt), and pretty accurately predicts what our roles will be. He doesn't approve, and I'm writing about him anyway.

What I would change:

I would add a picture of us. Probably this one:

(we took this picture about 3 minutes after he proposed)


How about you? How has your writing evolved since you first started?

This event is being sponsored by Standards of Excellence,Westar, and Florida Builder Appliances.

I love it..."because that's what married people do." Wow, I never knew that ;)

hmmm...I wasn't aware that was a prerequisite of marriage, but I thought if you had a kid, you definitely had to have a blog, too. Man, so confusing...

And he's smiling! What a great photo! I love your first blog. It shows your humor and that is what I most enjoy about your writing.

My first blog post was on another site about 2 1/2 years ago. A weight loss site called sparkpeople. My post was dark and depressing. I've come a long way since.

Aw, you guys are cute! I've never seen this picture before! It's darling.

I love the style of your blog, and the way you write.

Thanks for keeping it up! It entertains me immensely.

First i started blogging because i was going threw a big drama and had to do something to distract myself. So taking pictures, doing things i like and talk about it was a great choice + great memories about the kids...Now...still the same. It helps my creative juice and makes me happy.
You guys are so darn cute!
