I took a trip down memory lane tonight.
I don’t remember how it started but I eventually wound up on Jay’s blog, He’s long gone, no longer inhabits that space. But his writing is still hilariously real.
It made me think about days gone by, I mean has it really been a decade? I guess it has.
I originally started reading blogs when I clicked on the “next” button on my old blogger page. It took me to a blog written by a guy named Kevin who worked at a strip club. I was hooked. His writing sucked me right in to that life and I wanted to know more. I started leaving comments, and next thing I knew, I was part of a group of bloggers who became a family.
So much of a family that it came together way back when to support a very special girl and her family while she went through not one, but two liver transplants. These people because essential parts of my life. To this day, I count several of them as close friends, even though we never talk, or even communicate beyond liking posts on each others facebook pages.
Our lives have changed dramatically in the past 10 or so years. I’ve met a few of my bloggy family in person, talked to several on the phone. We’ve cried, vented, laughed, and shared things that I will never share with my real family.
So tonight, after my trip down bloggy memory lane, Here’s to the old days! Jay, Zelda, Jethro, Inanna, Jammie J, and Trashman. There were many others, but these are the ones who’s blogs are still showing up!
