About the Blog
See that little equation up there? girl + boy + long distance = blog
This sums up the story of the blog quite simply. You see - there was this girl who met this boy in the year 2012. They dated for almost a year before the Coast Guard said he had to move across the country. Thus started a year of long distance in which the girl looked for new hobbies and adventures to pursue on her own. One of the first hobbies she decided to try out (again) was blogging. Being a writer at heart, it seemed like the obvious choice to her.
The blog was called Stolen Moments. She wrote and she dabbled with primarily friends and family reading her blog whenever she chose to share it. Then, something great happened - she discovered a community of bloggers and started to realize the potential of blogging. At this point, it became more than a hobby. It became a way to help others and to make friends.
As her enthusiasm and the blog grew, there was a need for change. This is when the blog gained a new name that was inspired by the boy's last name - Hodge Podge Moments. The name fit perfectly since the blog had become a collection of random moments and topics over time.
While the blog has had its ups and downs (a true representation of life), it has always remained in its little corner of the blogosphere. I do hope you'll take a little bit of time to check it out while you're here.
