Blogiversary: 11 years! Thank you!

Wow! Eleven years of blogging makes me feel like a dinosaur. Did I start when computer screens were still black with green glowing letters? It feels like it!

When I started Rose City Reader in 2008, I was still transitioning from a pretty laid back, part time law practice, handling mostly real estate cases. I had lots of time to read, write book reviews, and spend time getting to know my fellow book bloggers. It was book blogger bliss.

But about the same time, my new law practice also took off, representing adults who were sexually abused as kids. I became a partner at a small firm specializing in cases against trusted institutions that allowed children to be abused. When my law partner died, I started my own firm in 2014 with one associate attorney. She became my law partner this year and we will have a great party to celebrate our firm's 5th anniversary and name change, just as soon as we finish a big trial against the Boy Scouts in Idaho in May.

Although my work keeps me incredibly busy, I still love book blogging and the blogging community. I blog when I can. I hardly write any book reviews these days. And I hate that I don't have time to leave comments on the blogs of my blogger friends. But I enjoy seeing book blogs continue to thrive, new ones pop up, book blogging on Instagram and other changes, all of it.

One of these days, when I can slow down a bit at work, I plan to spend more "quality time" with my blog. In the meantime, I'm happy to post what I can and to have the readers I do. Thank you!
