One Year Of Blogging ... Whoo-Hoo !!

Hello, Dear Blog Friends ....


I can't believe I have been doing this for a whole year. It has been so much fun, and I have met such wonderful people (take a bow, you know who you are !!).

I still remember when a friend first told me about blogging ... I had never heard of it. It sounded interesting, so I thought I'd give it a go. I haven't looked back since !!! I loved it so much (and still do), I was posting almost every day, sometimes twice !! Gosh, where did I find the time ??? Unfortunately, my blogging-time has taken a battering, and I am lucky these days if I can post and visit once or twice a week. Hopefully, soon, my time will be less busy, and I can come out and play more often.

I just want to say thank you to everyone who has taken the time to visit my blog, and become regular readers. I consider you all to be such very special people, and I love coming by and visiting your blogs, too, to see what you have been up to.

There is such a diverse range of blogs out there, covering all sorts of subjects. Some are serious, thought provoking type blogs. Some are actual journals, where people share what they do every day. Some are full of jokes, which always make me smile. Some are just very strange !!! Some are fluffy, fun-loving blogs, which are there just to give others a smile (or perhaps a cringe !!) ... I think this is the category where mine belongs (smile, or cringe !?!?!). No matter what category, or subject, a blog is part of, there are readers out there who will come back again and again. That's what makes this blogosphere so fascinating, and amazing. I am proud to be a part of it.

I had better head off again, to do a bit of blog visiting (hopefully I will drop by and visit you all within the next 24 hours !!), then back to my typing. I am still working on the Grade 6 Yearbook, for Chicky's school, but am on track !! I still need to get onto my Christmas cards, Christmas shopping, writing some more postcards (yes, I know I owe quite a few people cards ... sorry, I haven't had a chance to write them ... they will get to you eventually, I haven't forgotten you !!), and get on with all the other pre-Christmas stuff that needs to be done.

I hope you all have a great week.

Take care,

Darn, I left you a long comment and it didn't stick....rats... well, I wanted to say: Congratulations on a whole year!

Blogger lets me upload only 4 photos at a time (medium size) so that's how I spent my WHOLE day. Thanks for stopping by and commenting - it means a lot to me to have such supportive blogger friends. Take care.

Hi Meow ~ Congratulations on your one year anniversary - Well done and keep it up. I was too tired last night to comment, so am a day late, but thanks
for your comment. I am going OK with Beta at present, so fingers crossed.
Have you made copies of your posts, so
there is no chance of losing them?
Take care, Connie and keep up the good work. Glad you enjoy it so much, and we sure do make lots of great friends.
Love, Merle.

Whoo Hoo! is right, 2 celebrations in one week - do we get more cake?
Happy Anniversary.

Very inspirational for those of us still inching towards that first year - I read somewhere that 4 months is about the average, not around here by the look of it..

Your 'caravan' site looks great - you have it looking really comfortable.
