March 20th will be my one year blog anniversary

12 Mar

to blog or not to blogI was thinking about when I first began this blog and realized it had been about a year ago so I looked it up, and sure enough my first post was March 20, 2012. WOW! It’s been almost a year. So much has happened during the past year. My first post was about planning my wedding. That was 234/5 posts ago. This will be my 235th post.

I planned my wedding myself and had a blast doing so, even if it was hectic and stressful at times. One of my top posts for views was in May, but one of the posts I like the most was titled “What the wedding is really about.” 

And another of my fav’s has pictures of the sheet music roses and bouquets that I made for our wedding. love bloggingThere’s nothing like DIY stuff. I was so proud of myself when they turned out better than I had expected.

And one of my reader’s fav’s was “One week to go…OH SHIT!” 

But if I had to some it all up with one it would be “Less than 2 days…” or  “We did it!!! Our wedding part 1” or “Our Wedding part 2″.

Then I began scrapbooking and have several posts about that (and yes, I’m still scrapbooking and smashbooking).

keep calm and blog onAnd I even wrote a post about the dream car that Mr. Rockstar got me: Coming into your own. 

And as someone suggested, I created a page called MiMi’s Page that is dedicated to my grandson, to me being a grandmother. I became a proud grandmother, “MiMi,” on July 15, 2012.

One of Mr. Rockstar’s fav’s is this one: “I’m writing, he’s sleeping, …”

And my first Writing Challenge was “Starting Over.”

WOW! It’s been quite a journey and I feel like I’ve really just started. It doesn’t feel like it’s been almost a year, but it has. So I’m looking forward to many more writing challenges, as well as another year of blogging 😀


PS> And I didn’t even mention all the awards I’ve been nominated for. WOW!!! I just love WordPress!!! and all of the WordPressers (bloggers) who’ve been so nice to me and so supportive. Thank you, all of you!

    Many congratulations on reaching the One year milestone. Apparently, most bloggers give-up inside the first twelve months so to reach this stage is a great effort.

    Happy blogging 🙂
