Blogoversary

As of yesterday, I have been blogging for 365 days!  I've posted 125 blogs in my first year of blogging.  Never in a million years did I think that I would keep up this hobby for a whole year.  My track records for hobbies aren't stellar.


Here are but a few of my bygone hobbies:
  • photography...I took several classes over the years.  Now, I am totally dependent on my camera's automatic setting.
  • beaded works of art...I have worked off and on for years on my first endeavor.  Perhaps I secretly fear that finishing the project will symbolize the end of life as I know it.
  • creating mosaic mirror frames...I mostly created lots of broken china.  I also learned that grout is not my friend.
  • scrap booking...I became a slave to the guilt of not having complete baby books for Bryce and Reed.  The pressure to perform was debilitating.
I am now in my blogging/mail art/cupcake making phase.  I wish I was entering a healthy eating/daily exercise/water drinking phase.  I'm just not feelin' it.

Thanks so much for coming to see me on a regular basis!  Blogging is more fun if you think some one is reading your words!  Even if the 12,757 pageviews are lurkers from 3rd world countries looking for an easy mark, I'm flattered!  It doesn't take much to please a 54 year old retired stay-at-home-mom.

My pageviews by countries:

United States
11,680
Canada
198
United Arab Emirates
90
Germany

So, here's to Year 2 of Finding the Funny!  Again, thanks for your support!!
