Happy 1 Year Anniversary To Me!

The First Time...

The first time that I ever decided to do a blog, I chickened out. Sure, I viewed other blogs, checked them out, even found some of them interesting. Never thought I'd want to have one of my own (like a dog - always nice to admire other people's dogs but would never own one).

So here I am, composing my first blog entry. No one can tell me what to write here. This is my space, for now. Maybe it will become a really interesting space, or maybe not, but for now it is my space, and a space for me to crawl into.

That was my first post, exactly one year ago today, so Happy 1 Year Blogging Anniversary to me! As you can see, I didn't really have a plan for the blog, but I knew that I had some gaps in my life, and I needed an outlet for expression. It was not meant to be an outlet for complaining (although that does happen sometimes), nor an outlet for griping (again, can happen), but kind of like an invisible friend, who I could talk to.

Through blogging, I got linked into various groups, participated in the meme circle, and just plain got creative. I blogged about nosepicking (not me!), and the creepy guy, and created the tch-tch-tch sound to imitate the wild creature who inhabited our attic. I also dabbled in some technical stuff from time to time.

In the end I found few dear friends with whom I connect on a regular basis. You know who you are, in alphabetical order so as not to offend anyone..... (Jeni, Latt├ęgirl
, Mairin, Silverneurotic, Skittles (EarWorm Infection Alert ------Roberta Flack...The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face..just for you), Terry Queen of the Dorks). I always appreciate your comments.

So, as I embark on a second year of blogging, wish me luck. Who knows what lurks in the hallowed blogging halls?

Addendum as of 10:54 pm ET - Thank goodness that I write and own these posts. That allows me the freedom to add things, like a recognition of some other fine bloggers who stop by to visit.....again in alphabetic order....bobbygriffin, bundle-o-contradictions, Calibar Gal, cats ~ goats ~ quotes, Claire, Comedy+, Crazy Working Mom, Creechman, dawn, Dawnae, Dirk_Star, Donna, elementaryhistoryteacher, FalnAngel7, Felicia Lippenstein, Frances, FRIGGA, Hootin'Anni, Indiana Amy, Jaycee, Jenny, JHS, Joseph C.

Congratulations...a glass of cyberchampagne on its way. I've a few months to go before my 1st Anniversary...will always remember yours though as it's the same date as my sisters birthday!

How true those words are -"who knows what lurks" -actually, I think the quote goes "Who knows what EVIL lurks" but none of us is here for the evil junk so that was a good twist on an old adage.
Thanks for including me in your list of blogging friends. That's how I've come to view people I connect with via the blogosphere too. It's an interesting world we live in and reading different folks' takes on a daily or weekly basis -whatever - makes it more worthwhile, don't 'cha think!
Hope the 2nd year (and more to come after that) is equally as fun and exciting, fulfilling, as was the first! My anniversary is coming up too -I think in September, but not sure right off hand. Gonna have to check on that bit of information due to early senility factors that lurk in my pea brain most of the time.

The real me is not on the list (although one of my alter egos is)! *sniff*
