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!

      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*

      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. 🙂
