Happy Bloggiversary to Me
When Amanda was one, I sent out an invitation to my neighbors inviting them to a backyard barbecue, in honor of them for helping us make it to that point. That's how I feel about making one year in the blogosphere as well. There are many blogs that come and go, but passing that one year mark is something. I would never have done it without the great blogging community who encourage me as I read their blogs and who encourage me with comments about how my little words have affected them--it's been a privilege.
I would like to invite you on a little walk down Snapshot memory lane. Only one person knew about my blog at first. But then one day, one of the two of us who knew about her blog commented on my blog, so now I had two readers! I posted only a couple of times in April, but by the end of May, I was posting regularly several times each week, and by June, I was hooked for sure and getting more readers by participating in carnivals and Works for Me Wednesday. After opening back up to writing, I was very surprised at the sentimentality that flowed out of my typically no-nonsense real life persona.
Here are a few of my favorite posts from those first few months. It's not as good as a backyard barbecue and cake, but I offer them to you anyway. Thank you so much for coming.
