Big contrast to this year where this weekend marks only the mere beginnings of turning the corner from Winter to Spring.
I also noted while researching this post that I was still not 100% locked in as far as a format for this blog yet. For instance, there was a "Wednesday News And Views" that week. I suppose it shouldn't come as a surprise since 2009 marked only the fourth year of this blog. I was settling in on a format and posting schedule for sure by this time, but I don't think you readers quite understand how things were working or how they are working today.
Back in 2009, I still didn't have the "scheduling a post" technique in my arsenal. This meant that I woke up every morning that I did post and wrote the blog post for that day. Yes.....on the spot, every morning! That changed within the last ten years so that now I write the next day's post the evening before, generally, and schedule it to post before I wake up.
But this had not happened yet in 2009, so this was a morning chore at that time which was not easy to pull off. I am glad I figured out I could schedule posts ahead of time!
