An Auspicious Occasion

One month. I am totally amazed. On Jan. 2 I tentatively debuted into the blog world. I had enjoyed reading some of them, and I figured it was easier to comment if I had an ID. The Preacher's Wife had encouraged me and promised she would visit if I did. I had no idea how to set it up, what buttons were, how to get all that stuff in the sidebar, etc. I had visions of writing things and having no one out there. (At what point does a woman get over the junior high fear of rejection?!? Puh-leeze!!) And besides, I've never been a journaler, so what in the world would I find to blog about?

What a difference a month makes. And of course, the best part has been the new friends I've made! I get such a smile to see your names in my inbox, and I love to go visit your blog and see what you have to say.

In honor of my one month-iversary, I'm finally going to do the meme Mel tagged me for last week. Hope you don't fall asleep....I'm not too exciting!

1. You
2. and you
3. and, yes, I'm looking at you!
4. and you
5. and please you and you too! (so I can't count!)
I actually hate this part (see, I'm so insecure I don't even want to risk offending someone by tagging them! Or NOT tagging them! LOL), so I'm just gonna leave it open....I'd love to know more about any of you gals I consider my Daily Dose, so feel free to jump right in!

One Month! You are an absolute pro and one of my new "favorites". It is always fun to have a new friend.

It has taken me much longer to get going and connect with other bloggers.

I loved getting to know you a little bit more through your answers.

Blessings to you and congratulations!
