To my surprise I discovered this is my first anniversary here at WordPress. Yes, today, October first! I can hardly believe it!! I never would have known if I hadn’t written a post today or checked my site. There it was. In the upper right hand corner, an unusual looking symbol…something I had never seen before.
Of course I clicked my mouse, wondering what it was all about. Was there an announcement of some sort? Had I won a prize, perhaps? Well, yes and yes….
An announcement it was for me. Happy “ONE YEAR” Anniversary! And, the prize, you ask? Actually, I’ve won many prizes this past year here at WordPress. More than I can count! You and you and you and you…..
When I started this blog a year ago today, I hadn’t written much of anything in a very long time. Oh, sure, I signed my name on the bottom of checks, wrote lovely Christmas cards and e-mail letters, but not much else. A good thing I guess, since there were no blogging expectations inside my head. Looking back, I simply felt words wanting to spill out of me.
During this past year I have learned so much from all of you! There is a warmth of friendship from people all around the globe. You have supported me unconditionally and helped me to become a far better writer than I was a year ago. How can I ever begin thank you for that?
So today I’m celebrating my very first anniversary by thanking each and every one of you the only way I can. Thank you for all that you have given to me…..from my heart to yours.
*Go ahead, have a piece of cake. I baked it just for you.. 🙂
