Happy Second Blogiversary!

I’d like to interrupt everyone’s regularly-scheduled program to acknowledge my blog’s second birthday. It’s growing up so fast!

2 Years Blogging

Two years ago; I timidly typed, edited, edited, edited, edited, and edited my first blog post. The idea behind it came from a dream. I stressed so much about what people would think and how many awards I would garner from its publication…

I also set a goal to publish a blog post every day. To get myself going, I re-posted thoughts and stories I’d originally written for Facebook.

After a few months, I broke out and started swimming on my own. Everything I type is original and formed solely for the blog these days. If not, I note otherwise.

I’d like to thank Charli of Carrot Ranch, Geoff of TanGental, James of The Bipolar Writer Collaborative Mental Health Blog, Stephen and Fionnuala of Fractured Faith Blog, Nitin of Fighting the Dying Light, P’Arc of Peregrine Arc, and Frank of Frank Prem Poetry for giving me opportunities to share my writings to their sites. You helped me feel my creations might be valuable.

I would also be remiss in not acknowledging all of the friends and fellow writers I have made since beginning. You know who you are, especially since I know I’d miss specifically naming a few due to Pregnancy Brain. Thank you for e-mails, complimentary messages, sarcastic comments, and camaraderie.

And (unless I forgot anyone else), thank you to my real-life friends who actually read what I write and don’t shun me publicly. You’re the best.

  1. Congratulations Chelsea. I wasn’t going to read this posting, but fully intended to “shun it publicly” – but I’d already finished reading it.
    Gosh! I’ve never got a “Happy Anniversary” message from WP. Well done for your two year stickability!

  2. Oh you mentioned me! Gosh… of course you should feel good. Yours is a very readable blog. Daring, a bit controversial insightful and funny. Oh and you cite the late great St Douglas as an influence. Of course you are successful.. more power to those tippity tappity fingers…

    • Of course I mentioned you! It’s the best way to summon you over. πŸ™‚

      And who DOESN’T cite His Lordship, Douglas Adams? We must enlighten the poor fool at once.

      Thanks for the somewhat excessive praise, and for reading. πŸ™‚

  3. You’ve got real, genuine flesh-and-blood friends? Wow! What’s it like? I didn’t know real humans mixed with us cyber-flies πŸ™‚
    Let me be the first to congratulate you on your 3rd blogiversary (thinks: I hope Chelsea didn’t notice I missed her 2nd one by a day) πŸ™‚
