My Blog is One Year Old!
I have been blogging for a whole year now and want to share my 1st Year Blogiversary with you !
It has gone so fast, but it feels like only yesterday that I hopped onto this roller coaster journey into the world of blogging . . . that has become such a big part of my life.
My thanks go to Classy Rose (I know some of you will remember her), for getting me started on my blogging journey back in January 2011. She not only encouraged me to start blogging, but persuaded me to join the Postaday 2011 or Postaweek 2011 Challenge. I opted for the latter – mainly because I knew I wouldn’t be able to keep up with posting daily – and for those of you who did, you have my utter admiration for your stamina in keeping it up!
So, my first year is under my belt and I’m still here, churning out posts, continually connecting with new and exciting blogs, and taking on more Challenges as time permits. I have discovered that I have a voice and that I have something worthwhile to say – and I like it! The more I write, the more I discover the real me!
For me, the best part about blogging has been making so many friends here – friends whom I feel I have come to know quite well, because we all reveal little bits of ourselves in our posts!
We have a great blogging community here, and I want to thank each and every one of you for taking the time to read my posts, for all your comments, and for all your selfless support over the past year –
I couldn’t have done it without you – you rock!
Thanks Elizabeth from Mirth and Motivation, I accept the award with much humbleness!
There are so many here who are deserving of such an award, it would be impossible to name them all, but I’m sure they all know who they are. We have so many great writers here who are funny, inspirational, compassionate, wise and helpful, some sharing their hopes and dreams with us – it’s just a great place to be!
Elizabeth has asked us to write seven random facts about ourselves so here goes:-
1. I love anything to do with nature and animals.
2. Writing has been a passion of mine since childhood.
3. Photography is another of my passions.
4. Tell me a secret and I’ll take it to the grave.
5. Loyalty is high on my list in any situation.
6. Truth always wins.
7. Family and real friends are the things that really matter in life.
Wasps have to have a home too!
This wasps nest has been built on the side of my house and an egg has been laid inside
each little hole which is covered by a white film.
The other holes are empty because the egg has developed into a wasp and left the nest.
