Blogiversary

One year ago today I started this blog. I had been lurking at and around Jen's blog, Seersucker Stories, for a few months. (A little bit of past history for ya: Jen and her twin sis Beth grew up with Hubby in MA; Jen was there the very first time Hubby and I ever met (!)--in Charlotte, NC at dinner.)

So I decided to take the plunge and start my own blog. I stayed "in the closet" for quite some time though. I had no idea then how to hyperlink, add pictures or utilize the strikethrough function that I am so addicted to fond of now!

As I became more confident in my writing abilities, I started telling family and friends and sending them the link to this blog. Hubby was concerned about internet stalkers and pervs...and the fact that I was writing about him.

He still moans and groans every now and then ("Did you have to write that I slept naked?"; "I simply just answered you. Now I'm getting bashed by all your commenters!"), yet I'd like to think I know he's pretty proud of me. As a matter of fact, he sent me this e-mail in regards to this post I wrote: "Well, I have to give you credit for your blog yesterday. I just read it. Excellent."

So in honor of my blogiversary, here are the links to a few of the earlier posts I wrote (before I had any readers) that I think you may enjoy:

Kids Are Tough
Sweat Much?
(Out of) Control
It's Bwoken!
A Seinfeld Moment

Anyway, I had no idea how immense the blogging community truly is. Or how caring. I never realized that I would cheer on (she was my first commenter!), cry alongside, laugh with, idolize, emulate and admire so many women whom I have never met yet to meet!

But I do. And will continue to do so.

Thanks.

CONGRATS! One year is certainly a milestone! You better have a nice glass (bottle?) of champagne tonight to celebrate!

I hope to meet you tomorrow! We have to leave at 12:30 because we have an appointment, so hopefully we'll get to see you before we have to go.

happy blogiversery!

I am still in the closet except to a very few friends. and now it feels weird to tell family, when I've been doing it for 3 months. I dunno whether I will or not, but I love reading about how other people did. Hubby knows but doesn't read.

tulipmom said...

Happy Blogiversary Sarah!

I'm so glad I found your blog. AND that I decided to start one of my own. I'm not sure I would have made it through the past 6 months without the support of blogging friends like you.

Happy Blogiversary!

I should mention that you and a couple of other blogging ladies are the reason I started my own blog...I was lurking well before I started leaving comments!

Midwest Nest said...

Happy Blogiversary too! Enjoy reading your blog. I'm getting ready to vacation in Charlotte, NC, so if there are places to go and see, I'd love to hear about it.
