A Milestone

Today at 3:10pm plus 20 seconds Libya time, my stats reported that my blog had had it's 100,000th visitor! I guess you could call that a milestone of sorts.

I started this blog nearly four years ago, in September 2004, basically as a way of keeping my family back in the US up to date about what was happening in my life. It was a whole lot easier to post everything on the blog and then my family could just keep an eye on things that way. Way back in 2004 internet was still a pretty new thing in Libya; the connection was slow and sending out numerous emails was time consuming - and expensive too. So having the blog saved time as well as money. There was also the added benefit that there was an archive that my family could look back at.

Blogging wasn't my first adventure on the internet. Previous to blogging I designed a website that was mainly about Libya. It's down now - the fees need to be paid and I'm debating on it. It needs a total makeover and that's time consuming and time is something I never seem to have enough of these days.

I've met a lot of people because of my blog and made many good friends. I've also run across some weirdos too... ehem, ehem. At one point I thought about quitting and deleting the blog because I felt it was getting boring, but my mother assured me it wasn't boring to her and as she happened to be the main reason I started the blog in the first place I just kept on going with it.

To all who visit my blog,
to all who post comments,
and to all who link to me.....

Thank you!
