Today, December 5, is the fifth anniversary of this blog. At the time that I started writing here, I also had two other blogs that I had started three years earlier at the behest of our local newspaper, The Houston Chronicle. In one, "Backyard Birder," I wrote about my experiences with birding, and in the other, "Gardening With Nature," I wrote about my efforts at habitat gardening. Earlier this year, I decided that what I had to say could be covered in my one eclectic blog - this one - and I folded the other two blogs in with "The Nature of Things." That, in a very small nutshell, has been my experience with blogging. Frankly, it has all been a blast and I look forward to continuing it into the foreseeable future.
Thank you to all those who take time to read my scribblings. I do appreciate the time that you give me and your allowing me to come into your life. I hope that you will continue to visit me here from time to time and - dare I dream? - that maybe you'll even occasionally leave a comment.
