Today marks the six month anniversary of my blog. I want to thank each of you who subscribe to it, read it regularly, comment on it and forward posts. It really makes a difference knowing that someone out there likes to read what I write.
In six months, I have reached 58 subscribers through e-mail or WordPress and five to 9 subscribers (Feedburner changes its mind daily) through an RSS feed. Including this post, I have written 136 posts and had 10,821 views. Those numbers are way beyond my wildest dreams when I started writing on February 22.
I have, in that six months, taken three trips I have had the privilege of sharing with you, one to Key West, one to Pensacola, and one to Destin.
I have cooked cheese grits for my daughter once, and only once (see, Cheese Grits and Pugliese Bread and Cheese Grits, the Sequel.) I have added at least three more rules to my list of “Rules I Never Thought I’d Need.” (See, Just When I Thought I Could Retire the List and Of Kongs and Water Squirting Implements.)
I was able to share some of the beautiful Southern spring with you, a little bit of the better part of summer, and am looking forward to fall when I can show even more.
I also have had the privilege of introducing you to the wonderful women I work with at my office, while reserving the privilege of introducing you to the other wonderful women I work with in the Birmingham office as well as all of the wonderful men I work with. (See, A Tribute to the Women of Main Street.)
You even have given me the courage to start a second blog, The Football Novice, something I never would have dreamed of doing six months ago.
Most of all, I have tried to share with you the wonderful chaos that is my life as a wife and mother with a full-time outside job and three crazy dogs. I hope I have made you laugh along the way, and can’t wait to share more with you as time goes on.
Have a great evening everyone!
