Dear Dogkisses’s Blog,
I’m writing to say how much I’ve grown to respect you since you were born. I admit that you were an accident and I didn’t have a plan as to how I would care for you.
I remember what fun it was the first time I clicked publish. The life in you began to shine.
Unfortunately, I don’t know your exact birthday, but it was about one year ago. I’m sure I could find it somewhere on your dashboard, but I changed the dates of my first several posts. I can’t believe I trashed the “Hello World.” I’m sorry. I thought it was terrible writing, but now I can see where it would be cool if I could see your first appearance.
I realize you are just a blog. I know I can do almost anything I want to with you. What I failed to realize when you were younger is that how I treat you has an effect on others. The blogosphere doesn’t revolve around you. You live within it.
I’ve been working on cleaning up your archives. Not only did I click publish too soon, without doing a spell check, much less a full edit, I also failed to work harder at finding the right words, or better words than some of the ones I chose to use.
I should have watched more videos and read more about blogs before giving birth to you, but please know I’m trying to learn and do better in creating you and your, um… online presence.
From this day forward I will have a greater respect for you and your capabilities.
Your maker and caretaker.
