One Year!

Today is my official blogiversary. Happy day! Paper is the traditional one year anniversary gift. I also just found out that 7 years is wool - I can't wait! It has been 365 days and 162 posts. I have no idea how much people love reading about my life, but I sure don't mind writing about it. It's kind of like having an open diary....but also not so much like that because I don't have to guard it from my mom by putting a lock on it and hiding between my mattresses. Boys hide their Playboy there, girls hide their diary.

Thanks to Brian for making me a special blog header for today. And no, that graphic is not a man with a red hat sitting on a raspberry (who would dare think that?), it's the Holland Lighthouse, "Big Red." Good work Bri.

For my blogiversary gift, I'd like all of you readers out there to leave me a short comment. If you've never commented before (you know who you are!), it's not scary or hard. Just click on comments, enter your text, and click "publish." You don't have to register your name at all, just mark yourself as "anonymous," but sign your name in the text. So go ahead and type in an insult if you want, but you've gotta own up to it! I really just want to get some positive reinforcement from knowing who's actually out there reading.

I'll be on hiatus through the weekend. I'm off to Chicago (suburbs) for my yearly medical conference. I'll be much more learn-ed by the time I get home, but also hope to check off a few completed knitting projects.

Hard to believe you've only been doing this one year. You've become legen... (wait for it)...

But like I always say, time flies when it's awesome.

Nice job!

Hi Angie.
I don't know you that well, but we did meet this past x-mas. I am a friend of Brian's from high school. I really enjoy your blog. Although I have no knitting skills or even culinary skills, your blog is delightful. You have a great sense of humor and adorable style!!!
I also like the blog header. :)

P.S. We are practically neighbors you know
Publish Your Comment

I look forward to possibly getting together again in the near future.

Of all the knitting blogs I read, this one is my favorite.

I'm going to be in Michigan this weekend. On your way to Chicago, if you pass someone in Indiana, driving with their arm out the window, it's me trying to high-five you.

Happy Blogiversary. I'm sure you have alot more to say now then you did in Junior High School.
By the way, the subliminal message worked, I knit with Greys now too.

Chris said...

Congrats Tola!!! And to comment on Brian's art, I did notice it was Big Red. If only I was into knitting...I do enjoy the housework and garden posts though. Have fun at your conference and a safe trip.

Amber said...

Yay blogiversary! I LOVE your blog as you know, but not as much as I love you of course. Awww!

I started reading to check up on Brian's hair-do and now I find I'm oddly addicted...even though I don't knit.

She's, supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!
Even though the sound of it
Is something quite atrocious
If you say it loud enough
You'll always sound precocious

Great Blog Angie...
Happy Blogiversary!!!

Happy Blogiversary Angie! I love that I can read your blog and stay updated on everything going on in your life. Congrats on a whole year of being blogtastic!

Angie said...

Jessie - you're such a mom! Thanks to everyone for the congrats. I know there are still more "lurkers" out there.
BTW, who is "anonymous" that cares so deeply about Bri's hair? He (and I) is/are dying to know.

Happy Blogiversary!

This is the place where I come to get in touch with my femmine side. So, keep up the good work with all the knitting/craftyness.
I sure do enjoy the fruits of your labor!!

Three cheers for Smange:

Happy Anniversary! I like reading about your life and getting to know you without ever having to say a word! It's the perfect form of communication. I like being a "lurker". :}

Hey Ang! I was so worn out last week I completely forgot to check out your blog. Happy Blogiversary from the chuckles and I! I particularly appreciate how motivated I become, making me want to pick up my pointy sticks and answer the challenge!

Brian didn't miss much today doing the cottage thing. We got in as far as the "T" with the "men" spending too much time reconstructing some "new" dock Uncle Rocktown Ron got from a friend. Isaac was amazed to learn we have a flag pole! Uncle Jim told him to have a few more beers and everything would look more normal.

Who is interested in Bri's hair? It's the question of the week!

Happy Blogiversary!! It's fun to read, even if the knitting stuff is WAY beyond me. You do inspire me to blog, even if you can't tell by my blog!
