One Year Ago Today

One year ago today this blog was born.

This is my 297th post --

I'm closing in on 5,000 comments.


I'm happy. I am enjoying writing. Hooked I am, reading all the blogs I've stumbled on in this 365 day journey. One year ago there wasn't a strategy, there wasn't a goal. More than anything I wanted to publish some family history for my grandchildren and write some of my own. Perhaps the genuine plan is to pour like a pitcher, until empty.

The most astounding product of this adventure is the friendships. My cyber smiles and hugs are just as heartfelt as the ones I share in person. There are so many bloggers I want to meet.

To commemorate this 1st Blog-o-birthday I am going to give away a sweet present to the lucky one who types that 5000th comment. It's not big - it's not exciting. It is a small gesture of appreciation to all of you for being a part of my life this year.

Happy Blogiversary Sis!! xoxoxo

You've made friends?!? Man, I've got to start being pleasant just to see what happens!

BarnGoddess said...

woot! congratulations on the 1 year mark.

My blog reading time is sorely limited. The Dust Will Wait is one of the first places I go when I get on my puter.

You are worthy of your fans!

Happy Blog-o-birthday Pamela, I am sure that is number 5000... or not. You are so right an astonishing product of this adventure is the friendship. I guess that is a grand prize.

Bobbi said...

Yay. How exciting hitting the one-year blog mark! I know I for one enjoy reading your blog. I hope you continue for a long, long time :o)

James Cooper said...

Heather said...

Just in case, I'll leave another comment. You know, just in case.

Robin said...

WHAT??? I LEFT A COMMENT HERE EARLIER TODAY! I'M SURE OF IT...I thought I even saw it.

** tears **

And Happy Blogiversary...you have been one of the highlights of my first year, too (even though in September, it'll be my second anniversary...but as you know, I didn't go public til the Spring after).

I don't know how you count comments...plus, I can't go higher than a thousand, anyway ;).

ian said...

Happy blogthday!

How do you count your comments?

Ian

Peter said...

Pick me, Pick me, congratulations on the blogaversary, you should have juggled it around so that your 300th post came up at the same time, Keep On Bloggin'

Pamela said...

I have a file in my Micrsoft Outlook folder that I move all my comments into and mark them as unread.

The number of unread items is numbered.

I can open it and see exactly what time of what day each comment comes in.

Debs said...
