Take Two

Who would have thought two years ago, when I wrote my first post for Broken Cookies Don’t Count that two years later I would still be here doing it almost every day? Certainly not me but here I am and it’s my second anniversary, sometimes none as a blogiversary by bloggers in the know. 😉

It was fun to re-read that first post.  For a first try, I’d say it was pretty well written.  I did notice a couple of typos, but hey everyone starts somewhere.

The other humorous, or maybe not too humorous thing is my little faux pas with the photos.  I thought that after a few weeks, I could delete the photos in the attempt to save space in my WordPress allotment.  Note to self:  Don’t Do That Again!  I learned and I haven’t made that mistake again.

I feel that my photography skills have improved over the last two years and I hope that they will continue to improve.  I’m actually planning on taking some photography courses after the first of the year.  That should be  a lot of fun.

I worked at finding my way in the wonderful world of blogs.  I’ve learned a lot from other bloggers, gotten some ideas, shared some ideas.  The truly amazing thing to me is the collection of wondeful readers I have now…and not ALL of them are related to me.  But in truth, I feel like many of these bloggers are old friends.  I feel that I know them as well as people I know in real life.   I’ve said this before, maybe here maybe not:  You hear so many negative things about the people that are “on the internet.”  Some people make it sound like a dirty word.  I have found the people in the blog world are generous, enthusiastic, giving of their expertise, willing to help me not make the same mistakes they’ve made with their blogs and simply people I’m glad that I know.

There’s so much going on this time of year in real life.  In blog life, there are end of the year reviews, goals for 2013 for life and blog and a lot of looking to the future.  I don’t think I’ve ever considered what’s going on in my life or what I plan to do in my life as much as I do now.  I think I like it. I have exciting things about to happen in so many areas.  I like that.

I’m always talking about accomplishing things (or sometimes not, 😦  )  Today I got the Christmas tree up.  I was so excited.  Checked off the list and now on to other projects.

I’ll leave you with a thought that, yes I borrowed from someone else.  But I like the thought behind it.

Full moon-partial view

Keep your eyes open and see the Full View.  Happy Second Anniversary to me…I feel great things are on the horizon.

Happy Friday!  Tomorrow is another milestone!! Thank you to all of my wonderful Readers!  You keep me coming back every day!

    so happy that 1) you got your tree up -> i bet it looks wonderful! 2) that you are excited about taking the photog course and about the new year 3) that you shared that moon photo and quote with us – yes!! i truly do love motivational expressions and that one is great.
    so happy that we are blends (another bloggy term!) – happy blogging!!

    • Thank you, Thank you, Cathy! Blends! I never heard that term but I do love it! Yes I’m pretty excited about the New Year in general. I figured, I was responsible for making it good and I have plans!! I’ve always been fascinated by the Moon and I love this quote. I’ve also always been fascinated by photography and I figured that now is the time to do something about it. Luckily for me, this is at the local community college and only about 15 minutes away! You might see the tree sometime soon… 😉

  2. Fran,

    Happy Blogiversary !!!!


  3. I am so proud of you. You were born to write and nothing makes me happier than to see you doing it now. I would read it even if I wasn’t related to you! Happy Blogiversary, Cookie!

  4. Happy bloggiversary! I always really enjoy reading your blog; it’s always entertaining and seems as if it’s someone talking which is the best compliment in my opinion 🙂
    I love the blogging community and feel I’ve got to “know” people through doing it, it’s great to be part of.
    Ps that moon quote’s brilliant 🙂

    • Thanks, Eleanor!! What a lovely compliment coming from a real writer! It’s amazing the people we can meet through this…just think of the physical distance between us, yet I feel we’re friends! It’s such a gift from this crazy technology. Glad you like the moon, it’s one of my favorites!

  5. Happy Bloggiversary Fran! 2 years is awesome. I love the quote – very nice!

  6. Happy Bloggiversary!

  7. Happy Blogiversary! My two-year count is coming up next month and I agree with all you say about how rewarding it is and it’s all about the people you meet this way.

  8. Happy Blog Birthday. That’s great for you Fran. I deleted pics once too, but thankfully realized within hours what happened and was able to restore everything. Oops.
