Happy Blogaversary!!

While this particular blog that you're reading isn't a year old, today is my one year blogaversary. Has it really been a year since I started posting my ventings, my angst, my dreams and hopes online? It's only been since September that I've been writing here in My Secret Place, but I started the Amazing Grace one on April 29th 2005.

My first post read:


"Wow {that was the most impressive title!!}
I have no idea what I am doing...this is an experiment of grand porportions.
I am a nobody from nowhere...knowing that I am a somebody...because I know that Jesus died on the cross for me...We'll see what comes from this.
In the meantime, as Chief says in his email signoffs....Blessings!"

Changes since then: I no longer talk with Chief at all...he's the praise and worship leader of my church who thought I was propositioning him last August. {eyeball roll} What an ego---I was so very tempted that I would never do that to him {or with him} as I had a full blown crush on another blogger.

What has come of my blogging? Friends. I have a circle of friends all to my own.

Daydreamer I found when my brother mentioned her blog to me. I keep going back because she accepts me like I accept her, without strings, without expectations, with love.

Mimi I must have met somehow through Cpt. Picard's blog. She's great fun and a great encourager.

Kat and I have a few things in common...and she's only a couple months older than I am.

Fluke is a constant source of amusement, even though he's taking a break from blogging right now.

Jean-Luc-----ah what to say about him? He's a great friend, English to boot, and his one-year blogaversary is tomorrow! Imagine that coincidence will you? We found each other's blogs somewhere in the beginning of May...my first comment on his blog was May 2nd to be precise as Data. If you haven't already, y'all be sure to hop on over there tomorrow and wish him a happy Blogaversary will you? Tell him Ciera sent you. ;-)

I really enjoy blogging, as there have been so many different people I've met. The cross-cultural thing is really cool.

You've been here with me through my rollercoaster moments...have endured my venting and psychotic moments when I thought the world was ending...have listened while I cried on your collective shoulders about things that have depressed me...and y'all keep coming back!

And I keep making new friends like Paige! Not forgetting to mention Utenzi who pops in once in a while.

And if you're here from Michele's, who's weekend game I love even though my brother Cliff just doesn't share my enthusiasm, then you know one other thing I like about blogging...uhm, yeah, the weekend game.


Oh, I also like those stupid blogthing tests and meme's...

Wishing you a very Happy Blogaversary, dear Ciera! It was a wonderful coincidence that we started blogging within a day of each other. The fact that you found mine soon after was excellent as well. Thank you for the mention in your post, and more importantly, thank you for being you.
