Happy 7th Blogaversary, AKA The End
Jemima Jones Beck here.
Yesterday was my 7 year Blogaversary! Since Mom and I started this blog on a rainy day in Corvallis, Oregon we have written 636 posts, received more than 48,000 unique page views, and read over 2300 comments from friends, family and random Internet weirdos (you know who you are, sillies). We have made many friends; people and dogs that we have met in person or connected with via other social media.
Mom and I have been thinking about it for a long, long while now and have decided that it is time for us to stop writing here. Why? Both of us have outgrown the phase of our lives where we have the time, energy and desire to maintain a blog as it should be maintained (with at least three posts a week, in Mom's personal opinion). I am almost 8 years old now and starting to "slow down". I no longer want to play in the park, but prefer to stand between Mom and Dad to watch the world from their sides. Mom and I spend hours every day in our garden, something that we both love but that which is not necessarily conducive to writing a blog. And, of course, Mom is going on four years at a company that she is proud to call her employer and therefore has much less time than she did when we first started writing here.
I plan to leave the blog up for a while. It has been an amazing chronicle of our experiences and I would like to figure out how to somehow archive the whole thing for future reference. Does anyone know how to do that?
For the last seven years connecting with you all here has been one of the defining elements of our lives, Thank you!
I will always be so excited...to be a pug!
