One Year of Blogging is finally UP!

TA DAR!!!
One year, folks.
One year of me hitting these keys.
One year of me desperately trying to remember something that happened yesterday that was REALLY REALLY funny. To post. Like you do.
One year of Husband glumly noting that I am 'Blogging again.'
One year of children glumly noting that I am 'Blogging again.'
One year of surfing around other people's lives; reading, laughing, giggling, crying over them in turn.
One year of Blogging.
One year of friends asking me, 'Do you still have your Blog?'
Like it was Vaginal Warts.

Said I'd stop at a year.
That would be Plenty, I'd thought, back in Those Days.
Nope.
How can I possibly stop when there is even more to say now?
So.
Look Out.
More stories of Dubious Content will be forthcoming.
Storing up those memories for me to look at when these Children of Mine grow up and Away.

Brilliant. Blogging is.

A problem with your auto spell-checker I believe, isn't it actually called Virginia Waters?

Congrats on making your first year in Blogland!

Troy said...

Bugger! Just checked myself and it is Virginia Water - singular.

!!! Serves you right... Virginia Waters indeed.... used to cycle through the place when at school... cant think why... it was MILES.

Corey Schwartz said...

Stop?? What on earth would you ever have considered that!

One year old - hooray. You can't stop now, blogging is more addictive than hard drugs...

Maternal Tales said...

"One year of me desperately trying to remember something that happened yesterday that was REALLY REALLY funny."

Being menopausal, I am always desperately trying to remember stuff. Let me know if you ever find out how.

Congratulations on your first of MANY anniversaries! So glad to have you to visit!

PS: The vaginal warts comment was hilarious and made me laugh out loud!

Mwa said...

Of course you can't stop!

Congratulations, by the way! Serious milestone.

I think that most people that make it through a year of regular blogging have acquired a taste for it and can't stop.

Besides, you're not just "...Storing up those memories for me to look at when these Children of Mine grow up and Away." You're producing a body of work that you can use to completely embarrass them when they're teenagers!

Kevin Musgrove said...

Congrats.

You'll have to keep it up at least fifteen years. How else would you embarass the wains when they bring round the new loves of their lives?

Oh yes...

geraldgee said...

Blogger vet Eh? Congratulations!
BTW I was born close by Virginia Water (Trumps Mill) but that was long before you cycled by.

DJan said...

My year birthday will be February 15, so I know how you are feeling. And you have such a smart and humorous blog that you make me feel a bit like a laggard. I am working on humor. You are an inspiration.

Happy Blogoversary!
Don't you dare ever (ever, ever, ever) give up.

Tattie Weasle said...

Congratulations!!! And long may it last...

Sir Bruin said...

Glad that you have decided not to stop. My employer, however, will probably think otherwise as I usually read it whilst (supposedly) at work.

Expat mum said...

Congrats - but you've made me feel quite old. As a blogger that is.

Paula said...

Congrats on your first blogiversary! Stopping is not allowed. Everrrr! :-)

Lakeland Jo said...

Its a great feeling- a year under your belt. well done you

simplelife said...

Congratulations and I'm so glad to hear that you won't be stopping. I'm only a fairly new follower and even though I don't comment often I do always laugh and for that I thank you.

cheers Kate

Ladybird World Mother said...

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!! What a lot of lovely messages... how damned nice it is to read them, clutching my nice hot cup of tea... before I go and bury the chicken. Yup, you saw it right... bury the chicken. Long story. Future post, I think!
Sorry to do one reply for all... weekend and all, and family keep sighing that I am even on the computer for this one minute. Grrr.
Have a good one, one and all. xxx
