blogging is clearly not a new concept. when i googled "when was the first blog", the first response commented that blog usage became widespread in 1999. i graduated from college in '99 and i promise you, i knew absolutely nothing about blogs. i had never even heard about blogs nine years ago- i was clearly behind the curve of this "widespread" blog usage.
as i have become more addicted to regularly checking commentaries on life by a few of my favorite bloggers, i have come to terms with the fact that it is well past my time to join the blogging revolution. or at least grab on to the shirttails of bloggers that are running past me and likely to leave me sitting in their dust.
