It's My First Anniversary

January 23, 2009

I can’t believe it has been a year already and yet at times I feel as if I have been doing this forever.

When I first started this blog I knew very little about blogging. Actually I knew nothing about blogging and it is quiet evident if you read through the comments.

It has taken me a while to find my voice on this blog and the others but I think I have evolved in the last year and for the better.

I was given encouragement by some of my first commenters. They stuck with me and I am eternally grateful to them for that. I feel as if I know both of these guys pretty well, enough that I consider them close friends. Please check out their blogs. You can find Gdad here at Cranial Hyperossification and Bill at Life on Planet Bill. They are both wonderful guys and wonderful blogs.

I don’t think I have yet written a post straight through. In the three paragraphs I have just written I have attended to three different emergencies for my children. Of course I would have little to write about if it weren’t for my kids or my lack of organization.

I want to thank everyone who has read Redhead Ranting, Ergodic Cogitation and Kids of Queers. I want to especially thank the ones who left comments. Comments are gold in the blogosphere, they are what we write for and how we determine our worth out here so thank you so very much if you took the time to comment on my blogs or any other blogs.

    Congrats on your first year. Blogs change constantly. Don’t be surprised if in another year, it is viewed differently by you.

    Congratulations on one year with Redhead Ranting. I’ve always enjoyed your work – you’ve been on my blogroll for quite some time – and will continue to be a regular visitor here.

    And I would hasten to add – my sincere thanks back to you for having made Blog Harbor a stop on your reading itinerary.

    Continued success!

    Congratulations! I found your site about a month ago and it captured my interest instantly.

    I can relate to your statement about not knowing anything about blogging when you started. Neither did I, lol.

    My blog will be celebrating it’s one year anniversary next month and went through changes as I, hopefully, progressed in my topics and writing skills.

    Congratulations, keep up the good work and may there be many more anniversaries.

    Have a great weekend!

    Congratulations on making it through a year. I’ve only been at this myself for about 5 months and I’ve heard that many people just give up. I enjoy reading this blog as well as Kids of Queers. It’s refreshing to come across blogs that aren’t simply about pushing some product to buy!
