Oh. My. Gosh.
I have been writing this blog for a year. One whole year. 12 months and counting.
I didn’t think I would make it. There were times where I burned out and didn’t want to type another word.
But I pressed on. Because I had something to say. I had nouns and verbs and adjectives to get off my chest. Sentences to compound. Structures to test.
Verses to come alive.
I had stories to share. Some funny, some sad. I had ramblings to set forth, I had musings to set free.
And so I wrote.
This blog has been an amazing thing. I have “met” some wonderful people both online and in the real world. We have commiserated and shared stories and felt happiness and heartache. I am thankful to everyone who stopped by my little corner of the world and said hi. I am thankful for all blog mentions and twitter mentions and any “hey, how ya doin’s” that came my way.
Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.
The posts that received the most views, were indeed an eclectic bag:
- Easy Baked Pasta
- Extreme Couponing: The Other Side
- The Underbelly of The American Dream
- 1500? Oh Sure, I Got That
- Cilantro, Black Bean, and Corn Salsa
Sharing is sometimes difficult.
Catharsis isn’t easy…
I take a breath, get centered…
And I write.
