From Total Ignorance to Fourth on Bing in Two Years

Two years and one month ago I did not know what blogs were.  I did know they were on the computer and that my husband enjoyed them.  That’s all.

Then I got curious.  After a long illness I had some new-found energy, but not enough to be active physically.  Why not try blogging? 

A lot of virtual ink has been spilled since then.   Tea Time with Annie Kate is now two years and 510 posts old.  And this evening, when I searched for a reformed opinion on an author whose work puzzles me, Bing astonished me by putting one of my own posts in fourth place!  Google is, perhaps, more realistic, but for now I love Bing.

Looking back over these two years, I’m also very thankful.

  • I’m thankful for my new friends, first from Homeschool Blogger and later throughout the blogosphere.
  • I’m grateful for all I’ve learned about homeschooling, curriculum, reviewing, blogging, and frugality, both from reading other blogs as well as from preparing my own posts.
  • I’ve been so blessed to be able to encourage other moms even when I was housebound due to health or other responsibilities.
  • From my own home I’ve even been allowed the opportunity to be a vocal Christian in a world gone mad.  I am so grateful for that!


Thank you, my friends and readers, for sticking with me, even when I moved my blog last month.  I thank you for your support, your comments, and your emails.  Especially, I thank you for your prayers. 

May God enable us all to be salty salt for Him. (Matthew 5:13)
