Today my blog turns 4 years old. Believe it or not, I've had this blog for 4 years now. I posted my first post on August 13, 2007. Back then I barely knew what a "blog" was, let alone the concept of blogging and what it meant to be a blogger. Sister J and Sister K both had multiple blogs. They were always telling me how great blogs were. They encouraged me to start one. Consequently, I started up a couple different blogs prior to this one but was unable to keep any of them going. I actually have no idea where those blogs are these days. They were ideas that never went anywhere. Somehow this blog I'd Rather Be Eating is still alive and going. When I first started this blog, I had no idea what I would really use it for. To this day, I still really don't. I've only really been solidly blogging for about a year and half. Prior to that, I had used this blog as a food journal and workout log with not much actual writing on each post. I think it's come a long way from where it was. I'm glad that I started recording the events in my life because reading older posts really makes the past come alive. I wish I had started many years ago. It would have been wonderful to have text and photos to look back on. Well better late than never I guess. Happy 4th Year, Blog! I will be doing something fun this weekend in celebration of my Blog Birthday. More on that later!
Speaking of aging...this is a photo of me around the time I started this blog circa August/2007. Aside from being four years younger, I was really into highlighting my hair and I wasn't racing as much as now. Troublemaker then, still a troublemaker now. Some things just never change.
