Happy Anniversary (to my blog!)


A couple of weeks ago, I participated in a giveaway Lanaya had for her one-year blog anniversary. What a great turnout she had (congrats, Lanaya!).  Most of you know her blog, but if you don't... run, don't walk over to her place. She's hilarious (but can be serious when she needs to be), down-to-Earth, very supportive, and fun. And she's got Reagan's Toy Chest, a great kid's shop (always a link on my side bar).  Her blog is Raising Reagan, and you can visit her here: http://raising-reagan.com/ 

Today, it's my turn, woot (though I am a day late). ;)  Yesterday marked one year of blogging for me.  My very first post ran here. It had six replies. ;) My second post had none, lol, but I kept chugging along, and now I have some really, really wonderful readers (thank you!).

The blog keeps growing, and learning opportunities keep expanding (code anyone?), and there's so many things I would like to learn and do. 


Blogging has become more than a sometime-hobby for me, it has become something I enjoy and participate in/with almost every day. The biggest reason for that is you, the readers. So today, in celebration of my one-year, I want to thank every single person who swings by here and reads what I'm writing, enters the contests that are up and running, and/or has offered friendship to me both on and off of the Internet.  I appreciate every single one of you.

    Happy anniversary to bloggie. If I had time, I'd sing the birthday song, or do the birthday dance or light sparklers. Your blog is great..... many friends for one year's success. One of the friends, Manzi

  36. Congratulations to your awesome blog and it's tremendous first year! You know what you are doing. I have changed my mind on what I am doing a dozen and fifty times. And ...thanks for commending me on finding a great new hair stylist. I can't believe it worked out like it did and that I am so happy. I loved my previous gal, so much and just KNEW I would never leave her. I left and found a great one, again. My gosh! :D

      Blogging is fun, it's not writing like you do though (at my place). If I had to crank out actual writing like you do, I'd be in a world of trouble. Now I'm wanting to come over and read what you've got up new. On my way. :)
