And so I started my blog (the first post is here).
I expected that I might gather a few followers among my friends and family. I didn’t expect to find a blogging community that stretched across the globe.
I also didn’t expect that I would be able to stick with blogging. After all, I’m great at starting new projects, and horrible at finishing them.
And so I will say that my blogiversary is an unexpected success. Not that I consider myself to be a successful writer yet, but I do honestly consider myself a real writer now, a feeling that was rather elusive before my blog.
I owe the lion’s share of that feeling to my beautiful wife, DeAnne Mosey, for her encouragement, her understanding, and the sacrifice of our time together so I can chase down the dream of getting published. Thank you Bunny!
I also want to thank my fellow Weaklings, Bob and Andrew, for your support and encouragement. To Jessie Clemence, who is a wonderful commenter and an old friend. And to my extended family, who have given me so much material to blog about.
Also, to anyone reading this. Thank you for reading. I get a sick amount of pleasure from seeing that people are reading the words that I’ve placed into sentences.
And now for the real celebration: A Giveaway!
