Happy 1st Blogiversary....
Today is my one year blogiversary. Never in my wildest dreams did I imagine I would meet and get to know such wonderful people!
I began my blogging journey to keep in touch with my family, particularily my nephew who was less prone to answer emails unless directly related to a computer question. :) My niece is the one who directed me to her brother's blog. After reading ALL of his archives I felt like I wasn't in a fog, left out of his life. He has a wonderful, sometimes quirky sense of humor.
My mind began to wander...I began to ponder...why couldn't I do this very same thing? Couldn't I begin a blog? Maybe even my niece, Claire, would begin one!
It's pretty pathetic when you ask your niece if she has heard from her brother and she tells you no, she just keeps up with him through his blog. "Blog?" I said. "What's a blog?" "Oh, Aunt Claire, it's a weB LOG." So began my timid attempt to step into the blogging world with nothing more to go on other than it was a web log.
Well, Claire did join me and between the two of us we learned how to set one up. We learned how to 'link' to another article (that was a big day)! And, I finally stepped out and learned how to post pics.
My very first comment was from the nicest gentleman in England, named Roger. He shared a few sites I might be interested in. Then gradually, I met more and more of you wonderful people. I appreciate all the comments and I love being able to pop over to your place for a cup...and a visit. Some of you I'm just beginning to meet and others of you I have known for awhile now. Whether old or new, family or friend, each of you have impacted me in such a loving and accepting way.
Thank you for making my blogging experience a great one! And, here's to my next year!
