My blog is one year old today. WooHoo!!! I've made 604 posts in that time. That's about 11 1/2 posts per week. On average. For a while I was just doing mostly sponsored posts. (Ads.)
This is not my first blog. I've actually had two others. I've been blogging since August 2006. Right here as Skittles' Place. The other two were deleted. One I was able to get back amazingly enough. The second one I didn't even try. I missed blogging so much though that after a few days I made this one and got my domain name.
Some folks I've known almost since the beginning.. Curmudgeon, Down River Drivel, Erika Jean, It's About Time, Misty's Musings, Random Autumness and Smalltown RN.
Maureen from It's About Time was the first person to ever come back on a regular basis. Maureen was also the first person I talked to on the phone. (We spoke just yesterday again.)
In honor of the folks currently on my link list I present a little story..
I was bored and unsure what to do. In fact I was on the Brink of becoming a Curmudgeon. I was tired of Doing The Math... figuring out my options. It all felt like just Drivel to me. Even Erika Jean could see that!
(I thought I might have enough Time to play with some Legos but I wasn't sure.)
As I sat there thinking and picking the Petals from a daisy, I had many thoughts, Musings if you will. Some I wasn't able to put into Words.
There was One that stood out and it wasn't as Random as you may think. I may be a Smalltown girl but that doesn't mean I have to have small town Thoughts!
I decided to make a journal, a Chronicle based on the Tales of my day to day life. I made a blog and knew that would take me off in a Whole New direction.
And I saw it was good.
