Happy Blogiversary to Me!!!!!!!!

Yup...it's a year ago today that I entered the world as a blogger. I had been following Deb's blog for quite some time and she kept telling me to start my own. I KNEW I couldn't handle a blog of my own, but I finally gave in. What a year it's been. Here was my first blog entry 1 year ago today:

My first post

So I finally have a blog. I didn't know I needed a blog. I still don't know if I need a blog. My friend, Deb, has assured me that I have enough silly events to fill a land mine and it would be worth it to share them with others.
Now, I'm not sure that sharing events like going out shopping last Friday in my slippers because I forgot to put on shoes is the most important topic in the world, but I guess it's good for a laugh.
I think of blogging as a way to remember events for myself. What do I hope to achieve from blogging? Ummm...

1. I would like to find reassurance that the rambunctious and sometimes frustrating activities of two young boys are not only normal, but also endearing
2. I'd like to hear about other moms' (and dads') ideas of how to handle certain...challenges that show their face during child rearing
3. I'd like to chronicle the special moments that make us who we were, who we are, and who we hope to become.
4. Most of all, I'd love to connect with family and friends and meet many wonderful new people out there waiting to be discovered.

A quick note: I am a terrible typer and I do not always check all of my spelling. Please be kind, oh blog-mates, and know that if I would slow down, I can actually spell.

So here's to wonderful future of blogging. May we all become better people for having shared a piece of ourselves with others.

I took some flack for using the word "typer" instead of typist. In general, this blog has been a very good thing for me, and I have met some incredibly supportive people that I have come to know as friends. Thank you to Deb at Mom of 3 Girls who got me into this, to Shannon at Gabi's World for giving me a new look, and to all of you at the right sidebar who have bestowed upon me some bloggy love.

Here's to another great year of blogging!

Way to go, Girl!!! You write such great posts, and always have something new for me to read, that I can hardly believe you have only been at it for a year!

Looking forward to reading about your 2009!!

So I thought you had been blogging for longer than me. I can't remember how I met you, but I'm so glad our paths crossed.
