One year ago, today, I started pouring out my soul on blogland. I had no idea what I was doing but thanks to the patient help of my Married Boo and Son In Boo, they helped get me up and running.
The first stop was finding interesting blogs to read. I didn't even know where to begin so I think I did a search for moms and bloggers. I came up with Jill Jill Bo Bill's blog. She was such a sweetheart and welcomed me to blogland by commenting even if it was just her and the crickets reading.
Then, I joined a secret santa gift swap. I met so many bloggers...Georgie, Amy, Julie, Tenakim, Rebecca, Sandi, Linda Lou....then the list grew bigger...I began to follow and then you all came and followed me. I was so happy to know that I had readers that loved what I wrote...well...maybe love is too strong a word...but liked what I wrote and came back and continued to read.
In light of my one year anniversary, I have a confession...I am a follower addict. I find a blogger that I really like and then follow and then that blogger leads me to another cool blog and then I follow...and it continues, full circle. I do my best to comment on all of those blogs that I follow and that follow me and if don't do it often, I apologize, I'll do better, promise.
Thank you, all of you..for hearing me scream, vent, laugh, cry. I really truly believe that in blogging, I have found another life that I never knew existed...and as clicheist (my own word) as it sounds, if I could really, truly spend time with all of you, I would. Hey, that sounds like a great pitch for a reality show. CCD does the U.S. Any producers reading????
Either way, thank you from the bottom of my heart for being there for me.
A giveaway is coming up...it will be this week but I've got a few things that I've got staring me in the face that need my attention so in the meantime, happy blogoversary to me!!!!!
