Whew! What A Year!

I just realized that today was the one-year anniversary of starting this blog! Thanks for the push, Pastor Randy!

Let's see, what have I learned in this past year?

1. How to use spell check-thanks, Matt!
2. How to open new tabs-thanks, Robin!
3. How to copy and paste-thanks, Matt!
4. How to hyperlink-thanks, Grant!
5. How to try re-booting before I call Dell tech support-thanks, Mike!

So, I guess I could now pass 6th grade computer class, if I needed to.

I've also learned that there is every kind of blog you could imagine out there in the blogoshpere, because there is every kind of person you could imagine out there. Mostly I have met wonderful people, and found we have a lot more in common than not. I've bumped into someone who lives only about 10 miles from me, and also exchanged comments with someone on the other side of the planet. I love the mishmash of garden bloggers, enviro-warriors, Christian homemakers, church pastors, just plain folks (like myself) that you can find out there writing away and sending their thoughts out to be found and commented on by whoever stumbles on them. Which is actually kind of brave of them, when you think of it.

Anyway, it's interesting, and fun, and very thought provoking. It's put a few new wrinkles in my brain, and that's always a good thing.

You always make me smile, Joyce! You are such a blessing.

I appreciate reading such chipper, positive thoughts when I get a chance to get on the computer. That's a feat in itself with two teenage boys in the house, especially when they have company spend the last night. They were being "good," but awfully loud. My goodness, it was hard to wake up for work today!

Speaking of today, there were quite a few difficult moments. Reading your thoughts, though, reminded me to keep a grateful attitude; I am, and I will.

Happy birthday to your blog, and best wishes in year #2!

Congratulations on a year of blogging! Your posts are always interesting and thought-provoking, Joyce. I like the fact that you write on a variety of topics, too. I don't always get to read every day's post right away, so that's why I just comment on some of them. Wishing you another year of happy blogging!

Joyce said...

Thanks, ladies! It's been fun to meet all of you!
