I got up bright and early today, despite my reputation as a reluctant week starter. Why? you ask. It’s May and the sun is shining, hooray! Well, that and the fact that my bestest blogger friend Anita at A Still and Quiet Madness has graciously and generously handed me my third award (I’m really feeling the love these days, folks! Thank you so much!).
|It’s so lovely, I’m afraid to touch it. Thank you, Anita!|
She’s giving out more awards over at her blog (I told you she was generous), and I’m happy to see some familiar names given recognition for their efforts.
When I started blogging a month ago–it’s my blog’s monthsary–I was a newborn babe flailing around in the world of bloggingdom. I remember my fingers getting clammy at the keyboard, my stomach twisting in complicated pretzel knots, and the fear that I would become another dead blog in cyberspace because really, who’d take interest in an unpubbed writer deigning to proclaim herself a writer in the first place when she has nothing to show for it…yet?
But I made friends and quickly inundated myself with all things blog-worthy, such as learning what HTML codes are and don’t ever forget to save your template if you’re attempting to change your layout…. I found that being myself, in all my incompetent and so-far-from-perfect glory, is okay. That people can like me for who I truly am inside.
One month, 50 followers, 3 blog awards, and friends I’ll keep forever–these are my stats and they’re AWESOME! I’m happy I took the plunge that April Fool’s Day (thought I was fooling myself. Tehee.) Thank you for helping me feel so welcomed.
And now, as it is Monday after all, here is the funny for today. To all my friends/followers, cheers! *passing out cookies*
