1 year

One year ago today, I started this blog. I honestly didn't think I'd keep it up, but here I am. Thanks, Beki, for putting the idea in my head.

I try to use this blog as a 'memory book' for this period of my life. My intention is to capture snippets of things my kids do and say so that I can reflect on them in years to come, and also share with them when they're older. Sometimes, I feel like I've stayed true to this original intent, and other times, not. I often feel like I'm worrying too much about my audience (as small as it may be) and forgetting the real purpose. My goal, in the next year, will be to stay on course and not sweat the small stuff.

Thank you for reading though. I didn't imagine that you would. And the comments, oh, did I mention how I love those? (guess I did, huh?)

I am coming out of hiding to say Happy Blogiversary also.

I've been reading for about 3 months but don't think I've commented.

Always enjoy your stories, pictures of the kids, etc. Especially love John M. You could just keep kissing his face and never get tired.

Congrats on your 1 yr blog anniversary! I'm not really sure how long I've been doing mine. Seems like forever but I'm sure it's not much over a year. I'm glad I found you (or did you find me?)

Looking forward to another great year!

I love your snippets and I think you stay true to yourself, even if you stray from the kid stuff.

Most people quit blogging before they reach a year. You are in a special minority. Congratulations!!!

All of what we write is interesting. To give your family and your kids this opportunity in the future to know you in the past (through this blog)... wow, that's really powerful and special.

Happy Anniversary! I know what you mean about writing for your audience and waiting with baited breath for fresh comments. I never thought I'd get comment-envy but...

I hope you keep blogging and I'll keep lurking and even may comment from time to time to help keep up your comment quota.
