Today is January 12, 2011. I tell you that for two reasons. The day this posts will probably be the 14th so when you read this you’re gonna say… it’s not the 12th. Well, it is while I write it. The other reason I have to tell you that is that one year ago today, January 12, 2010 I wrote my first post and started my blog!
I can’t believe it’s been a year already! That’s one year and according to WordPress states 362 posts! Go me! Yeah, I’m tooting my own horn.
I am also gonna keep this one kinda short. I know I’m having some dental “surgery” tomorrow and am probably not going to feel like writing anything tomorrow so I’m writing it now and scheduling it to post ahead of time.
I did want to take a minute to thank all of you for the wonderful past year. It has been so great to “meet” so many wonderful new people and get to know you. Most of you I feel like I know personally and feel like I have known forever. Some of you I have actually gotten the privilege of meeting in person and many more I hope to make that actual face to face acquaintance in the near future. Some of you I already knew and am thrilled that you think what I write is worthy of reading.
As most of you know I have made a commitment to post every day this year for the postaday2011. So far I am on track. Please don’t hesitate to check on me and make sure I am keeping up my end of the bargain! I don’t even mind you nudging me every once in a while to shame me into keeping it up.
Of course the main person I need to thank is my wonderful sweet baby sister, SuziCate. I am so thankful for your support and guidance in the past year and your nudging me to do this in the first place. I am humbled in your presence. You are such a great writer and such an inspiration to me both in life and as a writer. I can only aspire to be not even half the writer you are. Your poetry constantly blows me away and your story telling ability is rivaled by none. You are an amazing writer and an amazing person and I am honored to not only know you but be related to you. I’m proud to be your big sister and love you more than you can ever know.
Thank you ALL for your support and encouragement and you all mean the world to me.
