50 Posts and 6 Months

This is my 50th post. I started by clicking on "create blog" as I was reading Bob's Middle Aged Martial Artist blog. The fact that I am blogging six months later is a surprise to me. I would not consider myself a natural blogger. I often do not know what to write about and have trouble adding images (hence the lack of pictures). A major obstacle is that I am a terrible speller. I always have been and probably always will be. I worry that my spelling deficiency is genetic. My daughter took a standardized test this year in school. She tested above average in all subjects ... except spelling. Thank goodness for spell check!

I only planned on posting a few times. To this day, not many of my friends or family (anonymous #1 & #2) know I have a blog. The fact that I enjoyed writing down my thoughts was a shock. Even more shocking was that I sent my thoughts out to be viewed on the Internet. So, what has blogging done for me? It has given me an outlet to document my ACL recovery experience. I was able to talk to people experiencing the same thing. I received support and encouragement from others going through ACL recovery. I can not thank you enough. Blogging has also given me the opportunity to communicate with other (non-ACL) martial artist. I enjoy reading articles as they document their martial arts journey.

I hope to continue posting and maybe one day reach the 100 post milestone! Who knows ... maybe I will start adding images!

Congratulations, Michelle! I agree, there is something therapeutic about posting. it's like an ACL support group without the time commitment. Even more congrats on the 6 months, that's great!

Blogging about my injury has helped me in so many ways.
