Janet's Abruzzo Edublog is now officially 9 years old! My very first post was on November 8th 2008. It was a short and simple introduction. I remember feeling a bit nervous yet at the same time, very excited about taking such an enormous step in publishing to the world for the first time.
Back in those days I was a technophobe and did not possess much confidence in using the web. That all changed when I took an informative and excellent course on Blogs with The Consultants-e. I had a knowledgeable, friendly and sympathetic tutor, and my coursemates were all in the same boat as me. This was a huge confidence booster and I loved every moment of the course. It opened up new possibilities and awakened a passion for writing which had long been dormant.
I clearly remember pressing the 'Post' button on that life-changing day on 8th November 2008 and the feeling of exhilaration when the deed was done. It was a definite 'Feel the fear and do it anyway' kind of moment, and I have no regrets!
Thanks so much to my blog readers and for all the comments thoughout the years which have encouraged me to keep going. I have learned so much from everyone!
A special mention goes to my dear friend and fellow blogger Natasa, who left me a message on my previous post. That has inspired me to write this post today, so I would like to say a personal thanks to you!! I hope we both carry on blogging for many years to come!
