Apologies for my not visiting your blogs on Wednesday, but the earache was evil. Anyways, I have vanquished that foe and shall be resuming my blog hopping today.
In other news: today is my blogiversary. That's right, I've been blogging one whole year. Wow. I started blogging to connect with other writers. To learn. To grow as a writer. It sounds so cheesy to say (you know I'm going to anyway), but blogging has brought me so many wonderful things. I've connected with wonderful, talented writers/bloggers, made friends, met my amazing CPs and the B.B.W (best beta in the world, Renae), seen people land agents, get book deals... the list is huge. We see loads of stuff happen in interweb world on a daily basis.
Adventures in Children's Publishing (who are also celebrating their blogiversary on March 10th) said something about blogging that is so true -- it's about the community.
"But the magical thing we discovered is that blogging isn't about what you have to say. It's about plugging into a community, sharing thoughts, learning together, and growing together."
So I just want to say thank you. Thank you for being on the journey with me this year. Here is to sharing our thoughts, learning, and growing together over the next year and beyond.
Oh, and that we all get agents, book deals, drop a dress size *insert dream here* and find a pot of gold at the end of our rainbow. Just don't touch my cookies. Okay... you can have one :)
