3 years of blogging.

Today is the 3 year anniversary of my blog.
Looking back at my old posts has made me cringe at times, but it shows me how much I have learned both in terms of my writing style and in the pictures I have taken.
I have always had a hard time updating my blog regularly. I usually post in "spurts" where I post consistently for maybe a month and then my posts drop off and I don't post for a long time. Then I remember that yes, I do have a blog, and I will go into another posting spurt. As I was thinking about my third year of blogging I thought that maybe I should post about the things that I have learned through the three years that I have blogged (consistently or otherwise.)

I have learned that no, it is not okay to capitalise letters in mid sentence.
I have learned how to spel mor beterer.
I have learned that you cannot use dark fonts with dark backgrounds.
I have learned that if you end a sentence with a "!" you do not end it like this "!."
I have learned that I have learned something.
I have learned that spellcheck does not fix bad grammar (I wish they had a grammar check...)
I have learned that it is perfectly acceptable to dress up like a nerd in public places as long as there is Lego somewhere in the room...
I have learned how to stage fight.
I learned I love Shakespeare.
I have learned how to Silkscreen.
I have learned that tumblewing gliders are indeed, very cool.
I discovered Threadless T-shirts. *sigh*
I explored the wild back yard for Tree Gripes, and found them. (they're scary!)
I discovered that I love macro and black and white photography.
I learned how to compose music. Slowly and painfully at times. (Mostly for anyone else in the house :)
I learned that Cirque Du Soleil is AMAZING!!!!
I learned to blog.

I have learned so many things that it would be impossible to list everything that I have learned.

And that's a good thing.

Your ever-learning Josh.

What a better way to celebrate than have your brand new book featured on your site. I think the book is amazing!

Hey Josh, you have not only been learning a lot, you've also been a great teacher. You teach me a lot about how to be a patient, kind and curious student of the world.
Congratulations on your 3 year blogaversary!!
