My, How Time Flies!

Tomorrow is my 1st year "blogiversary".  Some people actually have their act together and have a give-away, but nope, not me.  I'm more of an "Oh my gosh!  I should have done that!" kind of girl.  So, instead of a give-away, I'm going to grace you with 10 things I've learned this past year through blogging:

1.  I'm not quite a boring as I thought!
2.  CH can learn a lot about me by reading my posts.
3.  I can get stuff from CH by mentioning that I'd like to have something in my posts.
4.  I live in a wonderful part of the USA.  (Although I already knew this!)
5. There are way too many books out there that I would like to read; I just don't have the time.
6.  If I need an opinion or suggestion, all I have to do is put it in a post and I'll get them.
7. Some people actually seem to care about my opinions.
8.  Most bloggers are the nicest people on earth.
9.  I can get great beauty tips by reading that I've never gotten before since I'm in an all-male household.
10. Bloggers will answer any question you have.  And I do mean "any question"!
11.  I've learned to pay attention to the little things during the never know when it will be a great post opportunity!

And the recipes!  Thank goodness there are people out there with cooking blogs!  My family thanks you, too.

In addition, a couple of the great things about blogging are meeting new people and really connecting with people I may never meet in person, and reconnecting with people I knew in the past.

If you've been reading from the beginning, thank you for giving me the confidence to continue.  Thank you for answering my endless questions.  Especially Joyce, who introduced me to the wonderful world of gadgets and backgrounds! 
If you're a new follower, thank you for joining me for a glimpse into my life.  Thank you for thinking that I'm worthy enough to think about from time to time!
Here's to another year of blogging!  Can't wait to see where this year takes me!


  1. Happy Blogiversary! I don't know why, but I thought you'd been doing this for a L.O.N.G time!

    Can't wait for your post on Adoration. I've been thinking about one, as well, but it hasn't really gone anywhere....

  2. Happy Blogiversary! I recently started blogging and can already agree with most of your 'learned' list.:) I look forward to your recipes, too:)

  3. Congratulations! I do enjoy your blog and really like that we reconnected through our blogs.

  4. I thought you've been blogging longer than a year. I've liked the idea of getting to know you better through your blogs.

    (Cute background by the way.)

  5. Congratulations! I think what makes you so great is that you are down to earth and real. I like real! I'm so glad I met you through blogging!

  6. Congrats! I for one am very happy your blog is around. :)

  7. Happy blogoversary...had I known, I would have baked a cake.
    OR something. ;)
    I've never had a give away...not my thing either.

  8. Isn't it funny... Hubs learns from my posts, too. :)

    And on #8, I hope I qualify among the many. ;)

    Happy blogiversary!

  9. Happy Bloganiversary!! It is fun, isn't it? I loved reading what you had learned in this past year, LOL about your hubby reading your journal and then sometimes you getting to get things because you wrote about them here. You are absolutely right, whenever I want opinions, I do write for that and I get excellent advice. I think sometimes "hidden" behind a computer screen, we are more open than we might be when we are face to face with someone over coffee.

    Looking forward to the next year!


  10. Happy Blogiversary!!! I am so glad you started blogging and that I have a new friend!!!!

    BTW, you do realize that you listed eleven things, right?


  11. Happy Blogaversary my friend! I loved the list. I think everyone of them hits the nail on the head. I am glad you started blogging...and that we will meet (sigh) next time I am in Knoxville. Have a wonderful day!

  12. I'm SO glad that you started blogging a year ago, even though I only found you fairly recently (3-4 months ago??? ... not long after I started blogging).

    I'm with you on how neat it is that our DHs can learn new things about us due to our blogs. My DD has already told me how she enjoys reading my posts so she can keep up with me and learn things that she didn't know.

    I'm so glad we are bloggy friends!

  13. Congratulations on your blogiversary! I think I've been a follower most of your first year :)
    I, too, thought you'd been blogging a lot longer than that!

  14. Congratulations from one "shoulda done that" blogger to another! I'm still working on my 100 followers giveaway.

  15. Yay! I can't believe you've only been blogging a year! You're definitely a great blogger.

    I love your list.

  16. Happy Blogaversary!! It really is fun.

  17. Congratulations! Happy Blogiversary.
    I am so happy to have you as my friend in the blog world.

  18. Congratulations! I can't believe I missed your blogiversary. I am so far behind. You just reminded me that I probably need to see when I started blogging for real. It's sometime next month, I think.
