happy anniversary... to ME
first of all this is an award from Suz
it's not just any old award to me either.
a) it's my first ever
2) it's all been a feeble pretence that i'm too cool to want one
c)it's pretty nice of Suz to give it to me.
since i 'met' suz, she has not missed making a positive comment on a blog that i have written.
which is pretty awesome i think.
one of suz's reader's likened her to Erma Bombeck today.
that's pretty big shoes to fill Suz
but methinks you've got the feet. :-))
i have just passed my first anniversary of blogging.
i started last january!
and i think my next blog will be 100 posts.
so i thought i'd have a little party.
please come in and pull up a pew and allow me to pour you a drink.
watch out for flying corks.*
i'm pleased that anybody reads 'my stuff.'
as much as i enjoy blogging, i enjoy reading other people's blogs just as much.
particularly the ones that i 'follow' and the ones that are listed on my blog roll.
a few years ago i didn't know much about blogging, or bloggers.
and i hardly thought that it might be something i would do some day.
the first blog, and for a long time, the only blog i read was 'save karyn' which was the most funny and downright honest thing i'd ever read.
still is really.
i didn't leave comments in those days tho'.
now karyn has written a couple of books and blogs here
and she was the first person that ever put me on her blog roll.
that made my day!
so if we go by the logic of 6 degrees of separation, all blogs that i now read, with the exception of family members' blogs, had their origins there on that blog.
don't know if i could trace them back there now, but that's where it started.
i enjoy every blog on my blog roll and there are some that i enjoy that i haven't even got around to adding yet.
it's an ongoing process and i am adding and changing all of the time.
just wanted to say,
you want another drink?
okay, but the last one was a double so be careful.
on the rocks?
but you know, it's midday do you really think you should be drinking THAT much?
oh why not?
it's a party after all.
i think i'll just join you anyway.
(just ask my oldest son on the stats for flying champagne cork injuries among the teenage population....)
