I'm Late, I'm Late for a Very Important Date



Oh dear. How could it have happened? I just noticed yesterday that I totally missed my One Year Blogiversary on June the 1st. How could I have missed it? Oh I know. Maybe my thoughts and time were taken up overpacking for this adventure!


At any rate, where has the time gone?! A whole year. When I started this, I remember feeling terrified that after one week I would have no idea on what to post anymore. Well I always was the chatterbox of the family. When I was a kid, I was always getting "talks too much" on my report cards to the point my Dad would make sneak visits to the school, peering into the classroom door windows to see if he could catch me talking when the teacher was teaching. And as my sister said not long ago about my chattering ways, ''Some things never change".


So, here I am a year later, and I must say that it hasn't been so much the having to get down what I have to say that has driven this hobby. It has been you, my friends. It's been the wonderful friendships I have made over the year. Who knew when I started this that I would have friends from all over the world. You've made me laugh, you've made me cry. We've rallied around those of us who were in desperate need of prayer and encouragement. You've made me think and challenged me to walk more uprightly before my God. You all given me something that has added to my life.


And I want to thank you all and say how privilaged I am to have "met" all of you and consider you my blogging family. So to answer the question in my very first post: "To Blog or Not To Blog", I very emphatically say I am very glad I said "yes".


Now let's party! Grab a cold drink, or of course, coffee, some party food and stick around awhile. Feel free to look around back over the year!

Congratulations! how funny I completely missed mine too....I started 3 days before you, can you believe that. I always thought you were a blogging veteran!

Tammy said...

Oh, Congratulations, Susanne! :D

I had no idea you had been blogging about the same amount of time as I had! I thought you had been doing it so much longer!

I am so glad your answer back then was "to blog"! You're a blessing to me!

Doesn't it feel like that year flew by? Congratulations, Susanne.

That's maybe the best description of what blogging is all about I've ever read.

I'm thankful for you and your chattiness - I always feel comfortable over here at your place.

congratulations!! You know reading this brought back memories of my exact thoughts and fear of blogging. How neat! I just started in January then abandoned until last month. So I'm a newbie! I am so enjoying the blogging journey though. Thanks so very much for commenting on my blog! {{}}

Happy One Year - Went fast, didn't it! After a year, I do it a bit differently, but it's still a nice way to connect with great ladies out there. xoxo
