Happy 1st Birthday to My Blog!!

Wow, has it already been a year? Let me give a little background to this blog and why I in fact do it...

My sister Rachel started a blog when her little boy was born nearly 3 years ago. I thought it was cute and I looked at it once in awhile. She encouraged me to start my own and I told her that maybe someday I would. Then the blogging world began to grow, and I had a few friends start their own blogs. I enjoyed looking at them and it made me want to start my own. I was intimidated because I am completely computer illiterate (or aything technological for that matter). I expressed my desire to start a blog to my sister and she (being the amazing sis that she is) called me up one day to inform me that she had started a blog for me. The very first 4 posts on my blog were actually done by her- and she continued to teach me how to do it and everything I know about blogging.

I absolutely love to blog. I love it because it serves as a journaling or family history for me. I love to write and it is an outlet of sorts also. I also love that it helps me reconnect with lost friends and allows me to see what old friends are up to as well. I love that I can say whatever I want on it. I love to share my testimony of the gospel. I love to publicly share my love for my husband, children, and family and friends. I love to blog.

Thanks Rach for starting my blog. And thanks Tara C- you were a big inspiration to me also. Thanks to all who continue to read my natterings about my life... okay, I'm done. :)

Sarah, I LOVE reading your blog. Thank you for helping me get started on my own blog. I am computer illiterate too! :o) I hope you make a book out of it. I hear they're not too expensive to make. I love to blog too, I just need a kick in the pants to get me going again. Love you, you're an inspiration to me!

okay I love your blog and I love how good you are of updating it, but where in the world do you have time? I am going crazy trying to fit another minute in my schedule. I think I need another back injury to get caught up (I really don't mean that) BTW Dont I get a little credit for your blog?

I love this! Hooray for blogs! I love that I can use it for journaling purposes - it's faster than any other mode for me. Thanks for sharing and being a good friend.
