Two Years!

Happy blogobirthday to you…

Happy blogobirthday to you!

Happy blogobirthday dear blog-o’-mine—

[insert warbling that goes on longer than it should]

Happy blogobirthday to you!

Ahem. *clears throat* (A warble got lodged in my windpipe.)(Never a good thing.)

As of today yesterday, the blog is a two-year-old! Now, we all know what they say about two-year-olds—they’re terrible, and whatnot—but my blog is determined to shatter that stereotype and prefers you think of him (I guess the blog is male?) as a terrific two-year-old instead.

These two years have flown by—in fact, it feels like just yesterday that I wrote this post (last year’s “it’s been a whole year!” blogobirthday post).

Following the tradition I started last year, here’s a list of things I have now that I didn’t have a year ago:

  • A so-close-to-being-finished novel (albeit one that still needs a bit of work)
  • Two more novels in the first draft phase
  • More amazing Twitter/blog friends, and deeper relationships with the ones I already knew
  • A very, very, very full bookshelf
  • A new apartment in a new city
  • A baby boy (currently, uh, still baking)
  • A first writers’ conference experience
  • Numerous in-person writer friends
  • A fantastic critique group, and more experience giving/receiving feedback

I’m sure I’m forgetting things, but that’s a good thing! There is much to be thankful for. Happy writing and reading to you all!

*ALSO*—don’t forget to enter my contest, if you haven’t already—we’re up to TWO prizes now (Julie Halpern’s Don’t Stop Now, which comes out next week)! All you have to do is leave a comment on that post to enter.

      Yay! Thanks, Liza! It was weird to look back and think, “A year ago, I didn’t know Liza yet!” I can’t really remember not knowing you, haha. Thanks for being such a supportive friend—can’t see where the next year takes BOTH of us!! *hugs*

      Whee, thank you, Elena! Happy almost-blog-birthday to you, too! It’s so crazy how fast a year can go by, and how much can change within that time! :)

      Thanks, Hannah! Looks like we were commenting at the same time, haha. It has been a wonderful two years so far, and I’m excited to see what happens during this third year (including meeting awesome new people like you!). :)

    Congratulations on surviving another year in blogging! And wow, you’ve had a very full year. Of course the best is yet to come after the “baking” time is up. :-)
