When I read Writers Islands time travel prompt for this week, I thought hmm this is familiar. I could swear I've already done this prompt... Turns out it was my own prompt on my second attempt at writing a post back in April of '06!
It was funny re-reading this short simple post. It feels like it was longer than two years ago that I wrote it. I especially loved the comment from Ann! I also realized that I had never pointed out that he wasn't REallY drinking from that bottle and Ham that I am, I just pulled that hat off a bridesmaid sitting next to me for the picture! I don't make a habit of wearing big floppy hats to weddings, or eating cherries by the glassful! REflecting back on writing that post made my time travel topic materialize.
This April it will be two years that I've been at this blogging stuff! How quickly that time went by. I remember telling Ann ( of the funny comment and responsible for getting me blogging) Who will ever leave me a comment besides you? No one will want to read what I have to say. If I received 2 or 3 comments back then it was a lot and I was thrilled.
Along comes Sunday Scribblings and Writers Island, and with them the world becomes a much,much smaller world. Paranoid, whacko Lucy, who Is always telling her children "DON'T TALK TO STRANGERS ONLINE"!! begins meeting and communicating and forming friendships with TOTAL strangers! Strangers who always lend an ear, they lend constant support, They boost my confidence enough for me to bravely air my poetry. They actually come here and WANT to read my silly rants and trivial life stories. I meet life long soul mates who write me letters filled with genuine love, excellent advice and True friendship.
My comments go from 2-3 in '06 to the most I ever received in '07, TWENTY SIX! :)) thrilled! thrilled!) I remember I was so excited I emailed my Mentor Ann to share that number! Slightly silly, but it is an exciting result of doing something I am really enjoying.
Looking back on some of these barely read older posts... some are pretty good! Too good in fact, Not to share with my newer readers! Like this old Scribblings That EVERY woman can surely relate to or if You're a dog lover like me this one about my mentally unstable cockapoo Molly.
I am so grateful to any one out there who has traveled these two years with me and has read some of my little tales. As I continue to travel to many new and old favorite blogs this year, I am going to try to find enough time, to look back on how far they've come in their blog travels. Thanks SO much for coming to visit me again! xox
