Posts Tagged ‘year in review’


This just in from WordPress. I had no idea WordPress did this sort of thing but I have to say I am just tickled pink.  You could have knocked me over with a feather when this review popped up in my email.  This blog is purely a labor of love. It is like giving birth once a week without any anesthesia.  So, this little summary review by WordPress served as, what I might have imagined a spinal block with a hint of an aphrodisiac added into the mix, might have felt like.  In other words, Really Good.

I would like to thank everyone very much for making this such a fun and rewarding endeavor.  Your visits and comments do make it all worthwhile. I hope to continue to touch on those areas I think might be important, fun, even engaging.

And to Samson, who when setting this blog up made it quite clear how often I had to post and how many words I was allowed to use, thank you my love. You are a tough task master and it was good advise that I hardly paid any attention to. Blogs were always, except for maybe the first one and I hope this one, over the allowed word count and sometimes once a week amounted to once every two or three weeks. But, I would never have done it or learned how to do it if it wasn’t for your encouragement and insistence. ♥♥  Kenny,the writer, is anxious to introduce me to commas.

So here are the results. Big Thanks Everybody.
