Wow ... Ten Years

Today is the tenth anniversary of Homer's Travels.  I'm not sure if I thought I would be writing this blog that long when I started.  I still find it hard to believe.

1,616 posts.  An average of thirteen posts per month.  This is a bit lower than the first few years when I was posting around nineteen posts per month.  Something happened in 2010 that slowed down my blogging.  I don't know what it was but I suspect it was the opening of my Facebook account.

I've almost quit several times over the years.  Periods of writer's block discouraged me ... and still do to some extent.  But I have persevered and kept at it.  I have watched all my blog friends dwindle.  Only a couple post nowadays.  Several have moved to Facebook and Twitter pretty much full time so at least I'm still connected with these friends.

I will continue posting about planning my adventures and actually experiencing them.  Blogging the Appalachian Trail will be interesting - though it will probably drop my posting rate to about four per month.  I will try to inject some humor every now and then ... if for anything else but to pick up my own mood when I need it.  I will carry on.

No one knows what the next ten years have in store for Homer's Travels.  That's what makes it so darn exciting.
