Five Years of Blogging

Experiencing eLearning

Five years ago today, I published my first two posts on this blog. I have done better in 2011, with 52 posts, but one of my goals for 2012 is to blog more regularly. Monthly views plateaued for most of 2009 and 2010, but started increasing again in 2011 as I posted more often. When I started this, I had no idea how much I would learn through blogging and how many wonderful people I would get to know. Thank you for reading, commenting, blogging, and sharing.
