How Time Flies

Today marks the one year anniversary of my very first post. It's hard to believe that so much time has gone by. I started blogging last November after creating one for Rick who I thought needed an outlet for his wonderful writing skills. Once he began his blog, I became a wee bit envious so I decided to create one for myself. I can still remember trying to decide whether I could keep a blog fresh and interesting day after day.

What I didn't realize last November was how many friends I would find in BlogLand. When someone now asks me now why I blog, I always tell them I'm basically writing a nearly daily letter to all the friends I've made this year. And I couldn't be happier.

And speaking of friends, look what Mary has been nice enough to award all her blogroll members. I feel so honored to be included among some very wonderful bloggers.

So in honor of my first blogging anniversary, I would like to award this to all the members of my blogroll. Your blogs bring me joy and I consider each and every one of you friends.

Congrats on your Anniversary...and I feel the same way. That or I'm addicted, lol I don't know.
I love seeing what all my friends are up to and I love having friends all over. I'm always sharing my "friends'" stories with my friends that I see all the time.

What a lovely honor. That is so nice of you. Congratulations on your one year anniversary! (even though you didn't tell me about your blog until later) Even though we speak almost daily, I still love reading what you write.

Happy anniv cousin. You got me hooked too and I must admit it's been a lot of fun even though I don't have any idea how to do the fru fru stuff you do (well I can post pictures finally). I will let you post the award you have graciously given us on my blog for me though.

What a nice milestone! I have trouble with what is blogging, why do you blog? I like to think of it as efficient pen palling

Patti said...

Congratulations, Joan! I just gave you this award over at my place..

But you already have it. So now you have two. ;-)

Happy Blogiversary! I love reading your daily letters. Congrats on the well-deserved award.

BTW, is your husband going to write more about your trip to Ireland? I love reading about it - he's a great writer.
