THE BEST OF
|Blogging can be exhausting.|
Where has the time gone? I’ve been blogging about New York City for three years now. If you had told me in 2011 that I’d still be here in 2014, I’m not sure that I would’ve believed you. Blogging does, after all, require a large amount of time, energy, and commitment.
Some days I’d much rather stare out my window than stare at a computer screen, but it’s really all of you, my fans, who keep me going. Thank you for your loyalty!

Over the past few years, I’ve learned a lot of new things from Tracy’s New York Life, some of which are not exclusive to blogging, but relevant to life in general. As we head into the weekend, it’s time for “The Best Of,” so here’s a look back at a post about what this blog has taught me. Three years after getting started, I still learn something new each and every day. Will I still be here a year from now? What about two years, or three? If blogs exist, I suppose so, but only time will tell.
Here’s a clip of one of my favorite Broadway tunes, Sondheim’s “I’m Still Here,” and no one does it like Elaine Stritch.
8 Things Tracy’s New York Life Taught Me About Blogging
My road to becoming a blogger was a happy accident–– I didn’t dream of pecking away at a laptop day and night with people around the world reading what I’d written. I also didn’t wake up one day and shout, “I want to be a blogger!” Nor did I attend the “University of Blogging”–– although I think one day, such an institution might exist. Rather, this part-time hobby somehow became a full-time endeavor; one I didn’t plan or seek, but seemed to find after I moved to New York City.
Of all the jobs I’ve ever had –– dance instructor, sales associate, secretary, cocktail waitress, interior designer, intern (yes I was one of those, too), and a few other random survival gigs on the way to Bloggerville–– I’ve learned more on this job than any of the others. Here are 8 things Tracy’s New York Life has taught me about blogging.
