It was a quiet celebration. Just me, my cake, a bunch of quickly melting candles and a crowd of poison ivy leaves (mocking me because they know they're winning). I snapped the photo, ate part of the cake and scowled at the evil green vine.
Technically, my bloggiversary was Saturday (but I forgot). I've been blogging since June 6, 2006. There are nine candles crammed onto that cake. Hard to believe how fast the time has flown.
Because I spent my day chasing down candles, cake and confetti and then posing the cake, snapping and loading photos, I'm going to skip Monday Malarkey and do a Tuesday Twaddle post, instead. In the meantime, a million thanks to any and all who have visted my blog over the years. Many, many things have changed since 2006. I had one child in college and one at home when I began blogging. One of those children has since married and made me a grandmother. I've buried two cats and my mom since the beginning of the blog (and have been adopted by two new kitties), met some wonderful fellow bloggers and authors, made new friendships and traveled places I would not have otherwise thought to go. I wish I could share my cake with all of you.
Thanks for visiting my blog and sharing your thoughts about books and life!!!

Happy bloggiversary, my dear. So glad you're here.ReplyDelete
Thank you, Andiloo! I was just sitting here reading about The Estella Project and wondering if I could use it to justify buying a book I've wanted for some time (also wondering if the husband will burn the house down if I buy one more book - he seems to be on the precipice).Delete
Happy Bloggiversary! I feel you about the poison ivy. I have wicked thorned blackberries trying to take over my backyard. :(ReplyDelete
Thanks! Yeah, blackberries are a nuisance. We had those in our former backyard.Delete
