It's my Blogoversary!!!! Two years ago (where did they go?) today, I made my first post here and I wrote, "I'm not certain where I going with this . . . I truly look forward to to this new adventure in cyberspace and connecting with you, gentle bloggers!" Little did I know that 2 years and nearly 6,000 (wow!) visitors later I'd still be here blogging my little heart out and loving it. Little did I know that I'd make so many new friends across the globe! Little did I know that the blogosphere would love groaners and weird words as much as I do.
As I said above, I had no sense of direction when I started this -- just AQ's encouragement and the knowledge that I love to write and do so better some days than others. Ronni making me an Elderblogger helped a lot in the early days because comments weren't a daily thing (sometimes I thought I was talking to myself) and it got me through the days where I almost burned my Thinking Cap. People like Joy, Millie, Mary Ann and Golden Lucy got me through those rookie days and they have my utmost thanks and love for their support.
My deepest thanks to all of you who have passed this way and left kind comments here and in email and supported me as I muddle through the world. I appreciate you more than you'll ever know and than I can fully express!
There have been a lot of changes in me (which is not going to be discussed here yet) and my blog in the last year. I gave it a new look that I'm still pretty happy with and I've watched traffic here grow. A high point was getting linked to CNN when I wrote about the Jessie Davis murders here that made headlines last summer. That isn't over yet and I'll be writing about it again when it kicks back into high gear with the trial coming soon.
As usual, this landmark event has set me a-thinkin' and has me asking my perennial question that should probably be inscribed on my tombstone: What's next?
As far as this place goes, my plan is to continue the Groaner of the Week until I run out of groaners (not bloody likely for a long time) and The Friday Groaner until y'all stop sending them to me (and I truly hope y'all don't). I hope to do Kay's Wonderful World of Weird Words at least once a month as well as more on my favorite writers. I haven't done any Rambles through the Blogosphere where I introduce you to new friends for a while and I hope to get back to that, too. I also am working on a series called "How I Got to Be Me" which will cover some pivotal events that made me who I am today. Of course, I'm going to keep ranting on politics (especially S.1959 and Election 2008), cheering on the Buckeyes, tossing out Random Thoughts, and updating y'all on happenings in Kay's World with the Cranky Old Broad stepping in now and again.
Thank you all again for your kindness, friendship and support! I value you greatly!!!!!!
Happy Blogoversary to me and, as always, Happy Blogging to you!!!!!!
