Happy Blogiversary to me!! [Jun. 18th, 2007|09:24 pm]

I started this blog three years ago today. My first post was a one-line Firefly shoutout. 

My next post was more serious. The one after that, not so much.

Three years later, and I still haven't figured out exactly what I'm doing with this blog.  My original intent was to just get over writer's block. Don't know if it worked or not, but I have managed to average 17 posts a month, which isn't bad for someone with nothing to say.

There have been unexpected benefits - out of the blue, I was offered a paid gig writing a monthly column, and they told me my blog was a big part of the decision to make the offer.  And of course, there is the wonderful community of other LJers I've met and friended, and been friended by, and I hope I can get over my fear of rejection and grow that friendslist.

So, for those who have been here from the beginning, thanks for sticking around, and for those who hopped on board more recently, thanks for finding me. Here's to the next three years!

Happy Blogiversary to you! I'm glad to have found you.

Haha, as a teacher you find yourself uttering phrases that you never imagined would come out of your mouth. Most days, it's the same sort of thing, but every now and I then I'll exclaim "I've never said that one before!" ;D

I'm glad we found each other!

Kids can be quite the inspiration, can't they?

A friend of a friend....

...introduced me to your blog. I love your writing style - witty, warm, wise and a bit snarky. What more can one want? :-) How alliterating of me. LOL

You're fantastic..

"I started a journal because of a nagging feeling that I wasn't paying enough attention, yet now I find that I was simply overwhelmed by trying to pay too much."

Profound. That describes how I was feeling when I started an online journal, only, I couldn't quite put it into words like that.

I must not have started reading your journal when you wrote that, I'm sure I would have remembered that entry. Very beautifully written.

Happy Blogiversary to you!

Happy Blogiversary! It's harder for me to participate since I can't do it at lunch anymore (office intranet blocks all the pictures so I can't understand all the posts), but I read it late at night. Right now, i'm reading it from home and using your post for chore-avoidance. Working like a charm, too. :)
