Nearly five years ago, on May 26, 2011, I had the pleasure of posting the very first volunteer-written ACHA Blog post, “Meeting My Own Personal Rock Star,” by Christy Sillman. Today, as I prepare for my final day as ACHA Communications Manager tomorrow, I’m posting my last blog. More than 600 posts later!
As 2012 comes to an end, and the inevitable year-end numbers are crunched, we here at ACHA would like to say thank you to all of our bloggers—this year, more than 15 bloggers wrote more than 135 posts! Our bloggers are volunteers, and we could not be more appreciative of them being so giving of their time, but especially of them sharing about living their lives with CHD in such an open way.
As I posted Monday’s blog, I couldn’t believe it when I glanced at the archived website link, which indicated that it was the 199th post to the ACHA Blog. Wow! It has been nearly a year and a half since the blog launched in May 2011, and in that time ACHA has been so proud and honored to share so many personal stories and experiences with the CHD community through this avenue.
On behalf of ACHA, and especially all of our ACHA future bloggers, I want to welcome you to our new ACHA Blog! Thank you for visiting, and I’m looking forward to you becoming regular readers to see all that we have to offer; we have quite a few bloggers on board who will post about many topics relevant to the CHD community.
