As I Contemplate My First Year of Blogging

While I try to sum up what this past year has meant to me, my first year as a blogger, I went looking through the archived posts, and saw an unfinished draft here and there. But the one that caught my eye and wouldn't let go, was the one titled Lush Life. It has been lush in a Spartan sort of way. I didn't know what a blog was when I began this a year ago tomorrow. I had no computer skills--I used my computer as a Word Processor and storage space for the novel I was working on. I was often at war with my computer. I thought I hated computers in general. I saw it as a temperamental machine. It pissed me off mightily when it didn't do what I asked or needed it to do. So as I think about this change in my attitude and the change in my life that the blogging experience has been for me, I give you one more of my favorite Jazz performers playing one of my favorite Jazz pieces.

I'm also glad you took the time to tame the "temperamental machine". The blogging experience started out for me as a way to kill time while working third shift but did and does help me to clear the clutter from my mind.

Lisa is so right. Blogging has given me the outlet I needed also. And the bonus is meeting and getting to know great people like yourself and others. Your blog is one of my favorites. So with that being said...

***Happy Blogversary to you***

Oh darling, this is just the foreplay. I'm milking it for all it's worth.
