Sing It - Happy birthday to me,

Happy birthday to me! I have officially been a blogger for one year as of today. To celebrate, my hubby replaced my keyboard. That's right, baby--I'm back! Fully hyphenated and in control (meant to allude to my working control, or as the keyboard says, Ctrl, key).
As an added treat for all you cats out there, here is what I wrote my very first day one year ago (it's like looking at baby pics--oh, how I've grown):

And cue Doogie Howser theme. Although I believe my entries will be a bit more of rambling spiels rather than snappy morals to neatly wrap the weekly show. I fought it. Why does this world need another meaningless opinion to add to the cacophony? I fought getting a cell phone, too, until 2001. Now I don’t know how I survived without this phone. How did you find friends at movie theaters and airports? How did you find your way home after turning on a very wrong (and very dangerous) street? What did people do with all that silence in the car? But I digress… So I’m adding my voice to the world, free of charge. In this site, you may find, should you choose to meander this space, my personal life, some with learned life lessons, some unpragmatically for enjoyment, a travel log, a giggle at myself; you may find movie and book reviews and suggested reading/viewing lists. Who knows – perhaps I’ll even add photos and the soundtrack to my life. Welcome to my life. L’chaim.

Happy Birthday. And has it been as you hoped it would be?

Wow, someone younger than me in the blogosphere. Yeah, I don't know why I blog either, except that I've met some cool people and get to hang out with them. Seems to be a good return on the investment.

Heather said...

You know, I don't remember what I hoped it would be, but I'll say yes, at the least. Really, I think it's been more. I've met so many friends, encouraging friends.

Happy Bloggiversary...and funny, Heather, I can see your evolution after reading this. I guess all of "us" evolve after a bit of time. We stop trying so hard, ya know?

My blogging fingers have been tied for ... what seems like forever. Hardly able to write, hardlier able to read and comment :/. Amazing anyone stops in on my blog anymore...the song of summer? I dunno...last summer I was only beginning to blogblog (lol). This one I'm about to give up and we're less than two weeks into it.

L'chaim...I've always loved your name :), I use it often in closings of emails and notes.

Aw, I remember when she was just a wee thing in cyberdiapers. Look how she's grown.

My, my. How the time does fly.

Happy Blogiversary Heather xoxoxo. Mine is coming up in a couple of weeks, and I'm reposting my first post too (I'd been planning to do that for long before I saw you do it).

Your first post is significantly better than mine, but then your subsequent ones have been better than mine too, seems like nothing changes.

Yea!! How fun. Happy Bloggiversary.

I did not own a cell phone until 2002 or 2003. I was fighting it. Also I'm cheap.

There once was a girl name o' Heather
whose writing was all that/together
She's blogged for one year
So help me, my dear
I think that we're birds of a feather

congratulations... and I left a little note on my blog for you

Erin, you make me laugh!
