I'm 1!

It's my blogaversary...or something.

One year ago today I wrote my first post here. I didn't even have my blog open to the public. I was afraid for people to read me. A couple of weeks later, I made my blog public. I thought it would be ok if someone 'happened' upon this. But I didn't want anyone I knew to know. A couple of months later I left a comment on my sister's blog, outing myself not only to the blogosphere, but to my world. To people I knew. To people I knew would read this. It was a little scary, but I wanted to do it. A couple of hours later, people were reading. People I knew, and people I didn't know. People were leaving comments. People were enjoying. A couple of months later I found NiT. A couple of months later NiT found me. A couple of months after that I met people from NiT. A couple of days later we became friends. Ten months after I started blogging, I accepted a city-writer spot at 451 Press. Around that time I also bought my first digital camera. A month later I started my Flickr and added it here.

A year later my life has changed. Doing what you love will do that to you. I love to write, and I love to take pictures. This site has become my venue for sharing my loves with anyone who wants to know. And it has been a blessing.

Thanks for visiting me this year. I hope you'll keep coming back.

sorry i missed the party..i was in the hospital suffering for my art, or, possibly because of a stupid stupid ulcer.

It was great seeing/chatting you the other night. I'm truly glad you part of the blog-a-teria, and like I said once before, many of your posts are actually readable!
