The Proper 7th Blogiversary Post I Said I’d Write

Come to the Light

Last night’s episode of Grey’s Anatomy reminds me of a chat I once had years ago with my good friend Emlyn, whom I met through blogging and who was probably my biggest fan ever (no one else ever created a website dedicated to me). I told him how I wanted to make my life extraordinary and he said my life was already extraordinary as it was. He made me think and he was right. It’s just ironic how he became part of the reason that made my life extraordinary. He had to end his own life. I guess he wasn’t as lucky as I was.

When I was feeling like there was no point in life, I had friends who were there for me and who told me to hang on and promised me that life would get better for me. Friends that I wouldn’t have met if not for blogging, who lived in other parts of the world but whom I felt closer to than any friends I had in real life. I dedicate this post for them: Troy, Rebecca, and Jordan. Thank you for being around when I needed you most (even though I frustrated you most of the time) and for being the awesome friends that you are.

If you asked me what the biggest thing I’d achieved through my 7 years of blogging, my answer would be my life. Blogging saved my life. And really, what could be a bigger achievement?
I couldn’t write a better blogiversary post than this.
