i missed it...

I wasn't paying attention and completely missed my blogaversary. April 5th marked two years that I've been here putting my thoughts into words and sharing my life with faithful friends and the occasional passerby. As of April 5th, 2009, I have written 564 posts.

I'll have to admit, posts don't come as easy as they used to. There are so many days that I just don't have anything to share and the brain seems pretty empty. But I will continue on and treasure the days that I come up with something to say.

Let me take this moment to once again state why I have a blog and try to write on a regular basis. I started it as a place where I could express the thoughts that constantly rattle around in my head. This still holds true. I also want it to be a record or who I am and what my life was like for my future generations. Wouldn't it be cool to have a journal with numerous entries from one of your grandparents or great-grandparents? Hopefully, my words will one day be read by my grandchildren and they will find some interest in who I was and what life was like during my time here on earth.

I also want to take this time to thank all those who come by here regularly (even those who aren't so regular) to read my attempts in articulating what's in my heart and head. I appreciate that and each and every comment that you leave me.

Through these comments and what you write on your blog, I have been blessed in getting to know many of you here in blogland. When I started this blog, I would never have been able to guess that I'd meet so many special people and be blessed by your cyber friendship. Thank you to all.

Your blog is one of the first windows that I pop up each morning when I turn the computer on. Not only are your words enjoyable but informative and inspirational. Know that you have entered into a good work for the Lord and well as us. Blessings!

Happy blogging anniversary. I don't know how you come up with ANYTHING to write. That's why I don't have a blog. I enjoy reading your blog.

Happy belated blogaversary!!

I've always enjoyed getting to know you on your blog! It is encouraging to me to read blogs of moms with older children - notice I didn't say older moms, LOL!

Keep on writing and sharing what is on your heart. Since I've started blogging, I have noticed how much I learn from others when they open up and share their stories!! Thank you for that!

Diana, I love your blog, and I am so glad I met you. . . So keep on blogging my friend:)
Happy Anniversary!!

Susan said...

Thank you Diane for being here!!! Your and my history of blogging is very similar. I've been at it almost 2 years and 3 months and have posted 576 times so you're a little ahead of me on the posts. I agree with everything you feel and have shared with us. I mostly appreciate your total honesty.
