six years

a poem about my six years spent blogging.

six years ago,
I started blogging.

six years ago,
I started putting my thoughts to my keyboard,
connecting the words in my brain
to the words on the electronic screen.

six years ago,
I was still in college,
in my final year at Morris, MN.

six years ago,
I created On the Prairie
my very first blog ever.

six years later,
I’m writing at a break-your-neck speed,
fingers dashing toward the black-and-white ribboned finish line,
the muscles in my hands dancing to a drummer’s steady rat-a-tat-tat beat.

six years later,
I’m reading more,
I’m writing more,
I’m blogging almost every day.

six years later,
I’m still a writer.

Hello there! I'm Meghan. Thanks for checking out my blog!

Although I'm almost 30, I haven't lost my sense of child-like wonder for the world around me. I've been making up stories my whole life: My imaginative play with toys as a child has grown up with me, maturing into my imaginative wordplay with fantasy and sci-fi novels, as well as free-verse poetry. I thrive on creating something with my hands and with my mind, using my pen or my keyboard.

When I'm not working, I'm reading, writing, or knitting, I'm sleeping. I also enjoy watching Netflix, occasionally playing open-world video games, or hanging out with my family, my two golden girl retrievers Bentley and Charlie, my friends, or my boyfriend Rory.

Happy blogging!
