Blogging Anniversary

My two year blogging anniversary is coming up, on April 22nd. Actually, my first entry was just a couple of sentences in March of 2005, but I didn't actually "start" until almost a month later.

I'm also nearing my 20,000th visitor. Not monumental at all when compared to other blogging buddies' numbers, but hey, I've always said I'm not in this for popularity or recognition - I'm just here because I enjoy writing about my life as a mom. Nonetheless, even though my numbers are low comparatively speaking, I'm amazed that I've even had 20 thousand visits to this lowly little blog!!!

Wouldn't it be cool if somehow, some way, I'd reach 20,000 by my anniversary on the 22nd? It's probably not going to happen because that would mean "only" 1,500 hits in the next 6 days, but it would be kind of a neat anniversary present!

Anyway, if there are any "lurkers" out there, please say "hi" over the next few days. I'd love to officially meet you and get to know you.

And to all of my blogging friends - thanks. Thank you SO MUCH for being there with me over the past two years. All of you are so very special to me. I love you!

It's been an honor and a real learning experience to see how you handle yourself when life's challenges come up. I wouldn't have missed it.

Congrats on the bloogaversary, Val!

Since you've been blogging, I have lost my sister and my father. Yesterday, I learned of the VA Tech victims was a friend of the family (see my blog for more details). I can honestly say that your blog is one of the most grounded, sensible, blogs I read. I come here for a breath of fresh air.

Congrats and many more!

What a great anniversary gift that would be for you! I have a few blogging friends I'll send your way! Once they find their way here, they will probably be back often. I'm glad you blog and I'm glad that I am one of your "vistors".

Your contribution, no matter how small you might think it is, is valuable. You've proven that blood does not make a parent and your experiences provide a unique perspective many of us aren't aware of. Love you, take care, and happy anniversary.
