*Happy sigh* It’s now been one year since “Nobody416” was “born” (June 26th). I had started writing a little before and I felt that words without someone to hear them are pointless (I have since changed my mind on that matter slightly). I had very little clue what blogs were and how to get one… all I knew is that the Rebelution had started as one. :) I had the silly idea that if you started a blog you would end up with thousands and thousands of people reading it, a book deal, and a national conference. My current response to that is… “yeah right”.
Even though I haven’t been offered a book deal or a chance to talk to thousands… I’ve learned a huge deal through blogging this last year and met some amazing people! I’ve had the chance to make some wonderful friendships that I would never of had the chance if it wasn’t for this blog. Both casual friendships (I term them my “blog palls”) and some of my closest friends. I’ve had some contact with some people big in the blog world and even the assistant to one of my heroes Leslie Ludy.
I’ve also seen growth as a writer. I look back on some of my first posts and I cringe at times and I’m sure I’ll do the same with my current writing in the future. It’s amazing to see how much natural progress has come from just sitting down and writing. Writing has produced spiritual growth as well as I’ve learned how to articulate my beliefs better.
So now I want to hear from you! All of you that have stayed in the backgrounds and refuse to comment (or rarely do), come on out and let me know who you are! I would also love to hear what some of your favorite posts have been. Also, what would you like to see me write about in the future?
Because of a very busy past few days (and my longing to go to bed)… I’m going to stretch the celebrating out for awhile with some new fun stuff. Stay tuned in the next week or so for a intro to a new series (or two ;)) and maybe even a book giveaway! Thank you all for your support and readership, without you I would have no one to write to! God bless!
