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 sent him on a move across the country. Thus started a year of long distance dating 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 in this topic and that topic. Her audience was composed of primarily friends and family that clicked over when she would think to share a post. The blog was purely a habit and she didn’t foresee it lasting long.
Then, something unexpected 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 – Hodge Podge Moments. The name fit perfectly since the blog had become a collection of random moments and topics over time.
The blog has grown and evolved in a variety of ways over the years. There have been ups and downs (a true representation of life), yet it has always remained a happy spot in its little corner of the blogosphere.
