First Year Blog Anniversary--I Made It!


Time flies when you’re having fun! I started this blog on March 1, 2008 in an effort to promote my book and didn’t know if I’d have enough material to keep it going for a year or not, but it looks like I have. I’ve also sold some books through this blog which I am excited and happy about. I have “met” some very nice people through their kind, reassuring, comforting and humorous comments which has been very encouraging to me. I don’t remember how I came across blogger, but am certainly glad I did. It is so easy to use and this blog has a PR3 rating (don’t know why or how).


I love continuing to write about my dad this way and have thought of some more things that I wish I had included in the book, but I wanted it to be a short, quick, easy read that people would enjoy and not get bogged down by. I was also trying to get it published within the year so was eager, maybe a bit too eager in hindsight, to get it done. I’m not a plodder yet, although my dad certainly was. I expect one day, I will be too but I’m not there yet!


I try to post something new each week and so far I’ve been able to do that and will try to continue that practice. Time will tell. Thanks for visiting. There’s sure a lot here to catch up on if you’ve just recently discovered this blog.
