It's Been Two Years, Baby!

Two years and ten days (but my first real entry was on the 18th so I’m counting it!) ago, I made my first blog entry.  It said “ThiiissssismblogthatImadeatmydad’swerk”  That little silliness that goes back to a much younger Mimi still makes me smile.  I never intended to start a blog.  In fact, I wouldn’t have if Shaun hadn’t pestered me into it.  But I”m glad I finally started one.  More importantly, that I continued on with it. 

Over these past few years I’ve recorded many things that would have been otherwise forgotten.  Just little silly things like kid conversations, traveling adventures, and domestic disputes.   Whenever something cute, silly or semi-interesting happens, my family responds simply by saying “Blog It”.  Friends, relatives and strangers (this is a good time to delurk!!) all keep tabs on my me and my family.  To my amusement, if  I start slacking off in with my posts, I;m guaranteed to hear about it!

The blogging community itself it just so fun.  I’ve come to care about people that I never would have met in any other way.  I’ve even met bloggers in real life.  (Well, except for my neighbor Carol, which is really weird as we are only around the corner from each other.  We really need to get together as we seem to have so much in common!)  I’ve been given some wonderful awards that warm my heart.  (OK so I’m really, really bad about putting them in my sidebar and I have a couple special ones that I haven’t even posted about yet, but I really, truly treasure them!)

I’m not really done, but I have to go to work, I’m about to be late!!!! I’ll finish later….

    Happy Blogiversary. It is so lovely to develop friendships through our blogs and it’s even better when you get to meet bloggers in real life as I did recently.

    Happy Blogoversary. Ive met lots of bloggers but have become very clsoe friends with one that we discovered lives3 miles from here and is a homeschooler like we are!

  6. Stephanie says:

    Happy Blogiversary! I agree with you…I love my blog and the fact that I meet so many cool people (such as yourself!) that I probably wouldn’t have in real life. Fun fun fun! I can’t wait to see………read what the next year brings!

  7. Hilary says:

    I’m coming to see blogging as being the ultimate scrapbook for my kids and our life with weefolk.

    Oh, and I’m not a scrapbooker! I have over ten years of pictures stowed in boxes and on my c: drive. Yet another reason why the insta-memory of blogging appeals to me.

    Happy Blogiversary!

  9. Carol says:

    Yeah-huh, we met! Remember that time I looked up from my raking and you slowed to about 7 miles an hour and we waved and yelled “HI!!!!”

    Yeah, OK. I agree — that doesn’t count! Let’s make it official soon, OK? Let’s see: meeting in the AM, then Kat has an audition tomorrow afternoon, all-day interview on Thursday, Dad comes on Saturday…

    So –FRIDAY! Doggie walk on Friday afternoon, pre-Red-Robin dinner with our new AFS exchange student??

    I just LOOK busy because it makes me feel important. Ha ha! Who am I fooling?!

  18. lavidaboca says:

    Congrats on you blog birthday! I have only been blogging for a few months but I often think, “Some day my kids will be able to look back at this and recall something that they otherwise would have forgotten.” Then, there are those days where I just blog about random topics. I guess that’s just another glimpse of dear ol’ mom!

  19. madhubalan says:

    very good post mam, keep writing.

  20. Jenster says:

    Happy Bloggiversary!!

  21. Cheryl says:

    Like you, I can’t believe that I started mine and that I’ve continued with it. This from someone who bought a zillion journals and never wrote in them. Happy 2 years Susan!

  22. Frances says:
