Believe it or not folks......TODAY marks ONE year since I started blogging! Happy ONE year blogga-versary to ME! :)
When I started this silly old blog, I simply had no idea what it would become. I belong to a wonderful private Internet mommy board, and several of these wonderful women had started these strange things called blogs. Being the ever "band wagon jumper" that I am, I couldn't resist not giving it a go myself, now could I? At the time, I saw it simply as a fun outlet for my brain clutter, and wondered that if I challenged myself enough, could I quite possibly stop the slippery slope which is otherwise known as "my memory". I found that I was forgetting so much more than I ever could remember knowing, and the the very thought of losing my memories of Sugar Bear's childhood scared me. I wanted a place where I could share my life experiences, and my constant thought process about such experiences, with my friends and family.
It never crossed my mind that I would become part of such a wonderful community of bloggers. I did not factor in my curiosity, and need to expand my limited culture. I love that I have the opportunity to read such a variety of blogs. It opens my eyes, and increases my ability to be a better person. I am forever grateful for that. Please take a quick look at my Blog Roll and see all the fabulous blogging friends I have. If you are not on there, and think you should be, please comment here, and I'll make sure to add you.
Oddly enough, even though this started out, as a blog to share with my friends and family, I find that few of them actually read it. It might be that I bore them with all the mundane details of my life on a daily basis, so reading my blog is the last thing they feel like doing to unwind. However, many of them just plain don't "get it". In fact, I have gotten many a query as to why ANYONE at all would bother to read my blog. I have tried to explain how fabulous I am, but they are just not buying it.
So....could you all do me a favor? Will you please help me out here? It would bless my heart, and tickle me silly if you could take a minute to share approximately when you started reading my blog, and why you have stuck around. If you are really
So here is to a WONDERFUL first year. I can't wait to see what this next one has in store for us here at Living and Loving Every Minute of It!
