9 Years!

Party At El Guapo With Optimus Prime

I started Small Town Social 9 years ago today! What a special day today is. It’s been an interesting experience, writing for a blog like this. When I started STS it was because I found there to be a lack of communication between local businesses and the public. Bands would come and go and I would usually miss it. I had to read Fernie Fix religiously, and even they can’t list everything that’s happening, especially if it’s planned after the issue goes to print. I tried to fill a gap and to have fun with it. Now it’s hardly needed because of Facebook, Instagram and all the other online resources this town has, yet, I’m still writing.

I’ve tried to quit a few times and I failed at that. I keep coming back to it. It’s nice to have a place to put your thoughts when you want to share them. I don’t like sharing thoughts on Facebook but I like sharing thoughts here. Maybe, I feel like this is my space and no one else’s. I have more control and, perhaps, I enjoy not getting responses and encouragement – not to say you can’t encourage me. I don’t want to put value in my posts based on the amount of comments or likes I get.

My life isn’t that important and special. I know that! But having a blog doesn’t mean you’re any of those things. Blogging is just about sharing and I find sharing meaningful, just like painting.

So, thank you for reading my blog!



We’re 7 Years old today!
