(Don’t you love alliteration?)
I can’t believe I missed my blog birthday! A year ago—October 5, 2005, to be exact—my blog entered the world.
I wondered if anyone would read it. I wondered if I would have anything to say.
Amazingly, I’ve found things to say. Even more amazingly, I’ve found readers in the most unusual places. I’ve found other writers who share their words with me while I share mine with them. I’ve found out that friends and family, unbeknownst to me, keep up with me here. Some of you I’ve met face-to-face. Some I hope to meet in the future.
And since so many of my friends, old and new, blog also, for this birthday, I’d like to give you all a present: I’m going to expand my links list to include all the blogs I frequent these days—albeit weekly now instead of daily, due to the growing list. So look for the expanded list by this weekend. Maybe your name will be on it. (Or maybe you need to tell me you’re here and I’ll start reading you, too.)
Thank you for encouraging me this year. I hope in some small way my words have encouraged you.
Happy birthday to my blog!
I love it that you meet me here.
