    2 Year Bloggiversary!!


    Time flies when you are blogging! I started out this journey simply excited about the fact that I had my own blog and a place to lay some of my thoughts. I remember being nervous the first time I hit PUBLISH worrying about people reading something I had written.

    The following was my first blog post:

    Wondering How I Got Here....

    Wow, just realizing that life is passing me by and quickly. Seems like just yesterday I was 15. Now I'm approaching middle age! Funny how we become numb to everyday life. Just moving through it but not really living, only maintaining.

    I have searched my soul and decided to make some changes in my life. I'm attempting to overcome my obsession with food addiction. I have for years stuffed whatever I wanted into my mouth without fearing the outcome. Now it's time to start being responsible for ME.

    I'm attempting a starvation diet of sorts. I am only eating one meal a day. That meal can consist of whatever I want (still can't tell myself no) only in very small portions. My goal is to become anorexic (of course I'm kidding). It seems to be working. I've lost 14 pounds in 10 days! I'm ecstatic!

    I've made many friends, including many in real life. I never dreamed that blogging would take me to all areas of the world and that I'd bring people into my home that I'd never met before.

    Blogging has helped me to find the person within.

    2 years already? WOW!!! I past my 1 year I think in August. How did I get here? Good question but the most important thing is I have found some GREAT friends and a couple I have been fortunate enough to meet.

    I am very greatful for the fact that I found my way to your blog. You've made me laugh and you've made my eyes leak...but that's ok.

    You've helped me create my new look. You are a terrific person and hopefully one day we'll get to meet!! How cool would that be?!?!?!?!

    HAPPY ANNIVERSARY!!!!

    Geez, your first post was great. Wait'll you see mine. LOL! Not good.

    Keep 'em comin', Sign. Cause we love ya, lots.

    barman said...

    Wow, congratulations. I signed up about this same time but did not post anything until around Silver Bells when is when I first had the pleasure of finding you online and when we first spoke in email. It has been downhill ever since... just kidding.

    Congratulations on 2 years. It is funny but for not even knowing you and several other bloggers out there a few years ago, now I find it hard to go without seeing when my family is up to.

    Here is to another 2 great years.

    G-man, would you stop whining about those left overs? I do agree with you about somethings G ... Sign does indeed rock!!!

    I had to comment on your statement "Blogging has helped me to find the person within." Blogging has helped ME hide the person within. I think it is interesting how we all use it for different reasons.
