Bloggiversary and Friday Confession

So, today is my Bloggiversary. I don't know why, but I've been procrastinating writing today's post. I guess I was waiting for something profound or clever to pop into my head, but that's apparently not going to happen. Perhaps it's the lack of sleep or the distractingly beautiful sunshine coming through my office window. Regardless, today marks my one year on Blogger. I love this place. I love all of you who read my blog and whose blogs I read. I think everyone should blog. It's so enriching and enlightening...and of course, entertaining! Blog hopping is one of my favorite things to do. As I'm randomly going through blogs, I often read about people's lives, talents, loves, dreams, and sometimes misadventures. Thank you to everyone who shares their thoughts so freely. This truly is a unique community of people that makes the whole world feel more accessible.

Last week, I wrote a preemptive post about my bloggiversary. I knew I wanted to do something different with this milestone. There are always opportunities for giveaways and contests, so this time I wanted to do something bigger. If you read my post from last week and already commented, THANK YOU! If you haven't read my post from last week and would like to COMMENT FOR A CAUSE, please follow THIS link. (Thank you in advance) Commenting is open on that post until June 15th.





In honor of my bloggiversary, I would like to make a few "blogging" confessions...

  • I originally started this blog because a "friend" from Cafemom moved her journaling over here. Turns out she is crazy, but I'm glad I followed her over here and found all of you.
  • My first blog post was lame. It took me a while to find my niche...I still feel like that's a work in progress.
  • My second blog post was a little better. I remember being ecstatic because I had 2 comments, which came from my 1 follower (Lisa) and Melissa.
  • My 14th blog post was my 1st Friday Confessions post. Which also leads me to the fact that it took me from May 29th to October 3 to make 14 posts! So, it was a little slow-going at first. However, in October, I managed to bust out 42 posts! That was a record number in my blogging world.
  • Speaking of blogging world, is it weird that my level of happiness stems from comments on my blog? I know it may sound crazy, but comments make me happy...like really happy.

Thanks you to everyone who visits my blog...and thank you for your wonderful comments...that make me really happy.

14 comments...I love comments:

happy bloggiversary! don't feel weird that your level of happiness is directly related to the receipt of comments ~ mine is too!

hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Vivienne said...

No, you're not weird about the comments. Sometimes there are days (like today) when I feel like no one in my house hears me or sees me. Our bloggy friends and their comments provide us with a little bit of validation; that we do matter and that what we have written has resonated with someone.

Hey girl! Happy Blogiversary! Of course you're not weird...I think we're all the same!

I know when I don't get comments, or they're slooooow - I get totally bummed out and my husband thinks I'm a nut-case!

I LOVE your blog, think you're hilarious, plus a total NKOTB kindred spirt and am so glad you moved over here too! Because I am soooo glad to have met you!

Have a fabulous weekend!

Happy Bloggiversary! and for me, I love it when yahoo mail dings and tells me I have new mail, and it's a comment! It can really turn a crappy day into a good one, no? Have a great weekend!

Vivienne said...

I have an award for you.

Happy Bloggiversary!! I think I mentioned this before- but I love your Comment for a Cause!!!

I am the EXACT same way about comments and my hubby thinks I am crazy too- thinks it is selfish of me to want the "attention". To me, it is not attention, just means that someone is connecting with my writing.
I try to make it a point to leave a comment on every blog I visit.

Hope you are having a great weekend!
