Happy Blogaversary to Me!!

Jumping in with both feet!

Yep, it's happening! After having lurked around a number of blogs, and hearing from others who are trying it themselves, I figured I'd better give it a shot myself! No promises here. Maybe alot, maybe a little. We'll see where it goes from here....

That was it.  My very first post I ever wrote.  Eight long years ago.  I missed the actual blogaversary, which was Saturday, but it's given me time to think about what's transpired in eight years. 

Lots and lots of new friends made.  More travels than in the previous 47 years combined.  Two deaths within the immediate family.  Two deaths within my online friends.  Lots of births.  Lots of graduations.  Some divorces.  Some weddings.  Lots of kids growing up in front of my eyes!!  Too much cancer.  Too many hospital visits.  Lots of eye-opening.  Lots of mind-opening.  An incredible amount of good. 

Oh, and boobies.  Lots of boobies.

Yes, it's been a good eight years!

Congrats! Much of your 8 years sounded not so good but you ended with Boobies and I could hear the JOY in your voice. We are so much alike! I have boobies and they make me happy too. Peace.

Congratulations on your EIGHTH blogaversary! We're approaching our seventh year ourselves.

Having an online presence in the pre-Facebook days was very different from the way things are today.

You are definitely one of the OBs (Original Bloggers), and I am proud to say that I've known you more than half of your blogging career ;)

Holy...

I just realized that January is my month, too. I started blogging in 2005. We are the same! lol

Happy month to you!

I just thought I'd stop by to see if your blog is still going - I remember back when HNT was fairly new, I would wait on Wednesday nights for you to put up the HNT post, and I'd try to get one of the first comments, as I knew that I'd get a lot of traffic just by commenting on your HNT post. My blog is one of those that has been neglected over the years - I used to spend a lot of time blogging - but that was before I had a wife and kids and adult-type responsibilities. I don't find I have time anymore to do it. Anyway, just thought I'd stop by and see how your blog is doing. Take care.
