type, ignore the kids
chatter into the ether
truly have no shame
It’s been just over four years now that I have been blogging. I started this blog at the very end of March 2004. Can you believe that? I was just going through the archives, and I had forgotten that everything actually started on a LiveJournal blog. I’m sure it’s still there somewhere, floating in the ether. Then I switched to this format and wrote mostly haiku, with a smattering of posts about trying to be a writer. Then I started writing stupid imitations of rejected-NPR essays and critiques of famous people’s hair.
It took me a while to find my groove.
That groove was the wee one, I guess. It’s hard to believe that when this blog was started, he was younger than the wee-er one is now. And, yet, here I am, still typing away and having a good time doing it.
When I started haikuoftheday I never thought about how long it would last or what it would morph into. But I’m happy with what it is now. It’s a great outlet, a great writing exercise, and a great way to be reminded that I’m not alone in the day-to-day world of mommy-ing. It’s funny to write that out loud, because I don’t really consider this a mommy blog. Maybe that’s what it really is, but I’ve never thought of it that way. I’ve just thought of it as a Kari blog. I dig it. And I thank you for taking the time to read it.
Go check out the archives! Go see what an idiot I’ve been (and continue to be)! Go! It’s funny! I promise!
