I realize this is impossible, to get the last word on anything, but I will foolishly try. Many NBI (new blogger initiatives) posts still crop up--many are written in a series, or what they have been inspired by. That is all well and good, even great - writers write. It's my motto.
But this is one thing I think may have been overlooked in all of this, or I just missed it in the TLDR category:
Your blog is truly your journal.
When I look back on these posts, and cringe or laugh depending on their content, it is a raw expose of those things and mistakes I have made. Like one of my diaries from the past: MY MOM IS SUCH A B*TCH (I'm sure I NEVER said this!) to tear-stains, doodles, lists, and then always, the minutiae and the monumental of events.
There is no other place, other than your personal journals or photo albums, like a blog to keep track of your journey.
When other writers, including myself, just say--write--we mean just that. Write it down now to remember who you were, and who you are trying to be.
