(In Honor of the A-Z Challenge going around I'm going to attempt to Alphabetize my posts this month. Yay to all A-Zers!)
I have been blogging for over a year with 114 posts (!) and 96 lovely followers. So I thought it would be fun to take a step back and see where this has brought me and what it has taught me.
But let's take a quick look back at the beginning and see what started it all... Blooooooop.
Ah, LOST. I am a firm believer that it's never the Big Choices that change your life. It's all the little choices before that big choice that changed your life.
Deciding to watch LOST was one of those. I shouldn't have even ended up loving the show. I saw one "Before on LOST" and was so confused. I decided I should Never Ever watch the show.
The same thing happened to my sis. But then she ended up watching it anyway.
I came in during one of the many Run-Through-The-Forest-To-Creepy-Music-And-Hope-You-Don't-Die scenes. I went to bed. And was haunted. I had to watch this show! Well. Then I followed Rebecca's lead and snooped around Nikki's blog. And started a blog.
And then started a second one. And then started a Twitter. And a second Twitter for my Spakes. And then I started a Tumblr. And I made Awesome Friends. And I learned that the world of Publishing is much more Vast than I had imagined and that Writers are way cool people to hang around and that there are lovely Random people out there who are weird like me.
I also learned that unlike these strange Western Thinkers I do not live linearly.
I don't know why, but this is what I think of when
I think of the word 'Linear'
I live in circles. Which is why for a few months I'm heavy on the internet, and then for a few months I'm not, and then for a few months I almost never turn on my computer.
And maybe that's okay. To be circular.
This is Chain Mail. This is what I think of
when I think of being 'Circular'
I have learned so much here in this blog-o-sphere. I have so much support over here. It is extremely Awesome. And I am super excited to get to know more of you, to re-aquaint myself with some of you, and just have a generally good time during this Second Year of my blog.
And here are a few things I learned:
1) I am not disciplined enough to do anything regular on a blog yet. Ha. Except be Regularly Irregularly Random
2) Closing my eyes and setting my hands atop GLOM does not magically transfer Blog info up into my brain. This may be lame, but it's true.
3) Some Blog people have super cool Book Recommendations. Even if it's not something I usually read, I should read it anyway, just to see if I like it.
4) Wombats will one day save the world
5) People can get published. It is happening all of the place in this bloggy world.
I know some other lamnams blog birthdays are coming up or recently passed. (Like Wolfie402's)
Congratulations Everybodies! :D
