As I've said before, I was a blog reader before I ever considered creating one of my own. Then I wanted to, but didn't know where to start. It was only when I realized what a unique experience I'd be having (around the world in 340 days) that I figured I could begin blogging. And even then, I had no idea what I was getting myself into. How could I have predicted that I'd still be blogging 3.5 years later, have friends I'd met through blogging, continue to be inspired by them and other bloggers on a daily basis, and have such fabulous readers such as yourselves?
Two years ago, I lost all my blog posts. Two months ago, I lost my domain name. Today, the blog is finally complete. I've republished every single blog post that had been misplaced. I apologize for confusing you if you're getting them on Google Reader, but maybe you enjoyed rereading them as much as I did? :). Ha, probably not. Still, you should know that even though I can never get so many of your thoughtful comments back, it warms my heart to reflect on them. This is belated, but thank you.

Oh! P.S. If you've ever wondered something, anything about me... just ask away:
