I can't believe it's 10 years since I started My Blog. A lot of things have changed with my blog and with myself. 

There is a difference between my age, I was 8 when I started this blog and I'm Now 18. 

There is a difference between my grade and school since I started my blog I've gone to three schools, I was in grade 2 at Prince Street Elementary School and I'm now in grade 12 at Colonel Gray Senior High School. 

There is a difference between my height, in 2009, I was 4 foot 4 inches and in 2019, I'm 5 foot 10 inches.

There is a difference between my helping animals, I didn't have any workers outside of school and I didn't have a guide dog and now I have a worker outside of school named Taylor and I have a guide dog named Ethan. 

There is a difference between Home Activities, I didn't do any activity at home and now I'm doing activities at home (Laundry, Cooking, etc.). 

There is a difference between Charlottetown and Outside of Charlottetown in 2009 and 2019. 

In 2009, Charlottetown had very few coffee shops: &, Timothy's, Beanz and in 2019, Charlottetown has a lot of coffee shops: Timothy's, Beanz, Leonhards, Kettle Black Marche (related to the Young Folk and the Kettle-black), Starbucks, Receiver Coffee (also related to the Young Folk and the  Kettle-black, Row 142), Reciever Coffee Brass Shop (related to Receiver Coffee,  Young Folk and the Kettle-Black, Row 142). 

In 2009, Charlottetown had a few diversity restaurants: Noodlehouse, Sirenellas and in 2019, Charlottetown has a lot of diversity in Restaurants: Streetfood, etc.. 

In 2009, Charlottetown had its own mini golf-course and big golf-course and in 2019, Charlottetown doesn't any longer have a mini golf-course and big golf-course (it was replaced by housing). 

In 2009, Charlottetown had many video rental stores (Blockbuster, Jumbo Video, etc.) and in 2019, Charlottetown has no longer have video rental stores. 

In 2009, Charlottetown had a Zellers in the Charlottetown Mall, etc. and in 2019, Charlottetown has more clothing stores in the Charlottetown Mall. 

There is so much change in Charlottetown in the 10 years of blogging.

In 2009, Outside of Charlottetown had minimum Musical Festivals, only a few were there and in 2019, Outside of Charlottetown they have multiple musical festivals, now there's many. 

In 2009, Outside of Charlottetown had only one frosty treat with no mini-golf course and in 2019, Outside of Charlottetown has two frosty treats and one has a mini-golf course. There is so much change outside of Charlottetown in the 10 years of blogging.

In 2009 (when I started my blog), My Blog was on Tumblr then in 2017 with my dad's help, I move it to Drupal where it has remained ever since. 

I enjoy doing my blog because It's another way to see what's happening in my community (Country and Province) and see what's happening to me.

See you all in 2029 for 20 years of my Blog.

Keep up the good work, Oliver! I enjoyed reading about all the changes in Charlottetown over the last 10 years. I look forward to reading more of your blogs.

First of all I want to say terrific blog!

I had a quick question in which I'd like to ask if you do
not mind. I was interested to know how you center yourself and
clear your head before writing. I have had trouble
clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts out. I truly do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or hints?

Kudos!

Oliver, I moved back to Charlottetown in 2006 after being away for 35 years. It's a different place for sure, but I always feel at home and the progress for this lovely town is astounding. Thanks so much for sharing this. It's a really neat blog!
