Updated - One Year Blog-versary

UPDATE: Thank you, Blogger! You erased all my lovely comments. To all of you that took the time to comment yesterday, thank you. I wish I could have read them! So be it.

In other news...I butchered the first chapter of Setting the Record Straight. 
Which means...I wrote today.
Thank you, Universe!


One year.
One year today, May 12th.
One year and 177 posts.
One year and 178 followers.
One year of you guys listening to my nonsense.

You guys ROCK!

I took a look back at my first post. I know I am currently living in naiveville but back then I was sooo completely clueless.

It just never occurred to me that I wasn't any good.

I've made some great new friends! Yes, you!

I've been a part of some great bloghops, blogfests and challenges.

I've learned many things. Some important, some not. Some very painful truths.

It's all part of the process, right?

I'm not giving up. I won't. I know I don't suck...all the time.

I just have to find the right way, for me, to accomplish my goals.

What are my goals?

Write something awesome and then get it published.

Doesn't seem like much to ask from the 'verse.

So here's us, on the raggedy edge. Waiting for publication. Waiting for a sign. Waiting for vindication.

Waiting is the hardest part.


  1. Congratulations!Here's tot he next one.

  2. Mood - Big thanks for coming to see me all the time!

  3. Happy Anniverary! You will succeed. I'll throw a coin into the Falls and make a wish today.

    Here's to Waiting! *guzzle*

  5. Happy bloggerversary! Cupcakes for all!

  6. Happy bloggerversary! Congratulations on your first year of blogging. I am very proud of you, because you kept going when you really wanted to give up. You are truly an inspiration and I still love reading your blog just as much as I did the first day I discovered it.

    I hope you keep going. And I would truly buy your books, because I enjoy each and every one of your stories.

  7. Liz P. - Thank you and thanks for coming.

    Suz - Thank you! Make it a quarter!

    Talli - Appreciate it, thanks!

    Tara - Only one, I have to drive later! Thank you.

    Renee - Yeah for cupcakes! As long as I don't have to frost them!

    Murees - You help keep me going each time I think I will fail. Thanks so much for believing in me. I hope I do get published so I can give you a book for all of your support!

    Thanks everyone!

  8. Ahh! Blogger says you should get your posts/comments back. Please don't hold your breath. It could prove fatal.
    Congrats on one year!

  9. Thanks guys.

    I'm not holding my breath about the comments. I got to read quite a few of them but I didn't get to respond to them.

  10. For me self-doubt is the hardest part… and a close second: is finding the time to grow and create with a full time job, wife and two kids.

    I wish you well, and hope you achieve your goals.

  11. Jeff - I hear you. Thanks for stopping in! I really like your story, don't give up!
