Blog-a-versary


NOTE: This was supposed to post on Saturday, September 18, which was the one year anniversary of An Inch of Time. Apparently, after a year I still don't know how to schedule a post to appear at a later date! Sigh!

Today is the one year anniversary of An Inch of Time! While I remember my first post as if it were yesterday, I also remember writing, “Life is a journey, not a destination.” This past year has been quite the journey! Along the way, I’ve met wonderful bloggers who have helped me with suggestions, given me their support, offered friendship, shared their sense of humor and sent many emails. And today I’d like to thank them for being there.

Christina of Soul Aperture – you gave me the final friendly push to get me started and whose beautiful photography and peaceful posts make life that much better.

Se’Lah of NECESSARY ROOM – who is always there with her love, support, incredible sense of humor, her techno-tard-ness and some of the funniest emails I’ve ever received!

Darcel of The Mahogany Way – who offered me the chance to do a guest post on her blog and whose photos of her family are so heart-warming.

Lisa of Anali’s First Amendment – who keeeps my taste buds watering for many of her wonderful posts on great places to eat in Boston! Some of which I hope to visit in the near future with her and Se'Lah in tow!!!

Birdie of Simple Ways for her humor, kindness, support and email.

Lynn of Allegria Images for her posts on her hilarious escapades with her children and life in general!

Relyn of Come Sit By My Fire – for her beautiful photography and poetry, which speaks volumes to my soul!

Jaime of Rhayne – a map of my planet -- for her breathtaking photos and thought-provoking posts that speak to me on many different levels.

All of you have helped me grow not only with my photography but also in my writing. Two things which I love to do more than anything else. You’ve helped me to be more observant of the world around me and you’ve empowered me to see, and take, photos of things I would’ve never thought of before. You’ve expanded my world in ways I would’ve never thought possible. So . . .
from the bottom of my heart thank you all so very much for your support, friendship, ideas, suggestions, love, post comments and also for just being YOU!!!

BTW, Se'Lah came up with "Blog-a-versary!" Thanks Se'Lah!!!

Namaste
Chris

Chris, happy 1 blog-a-versary !!! I'm so happy to have met you here too, pitty I live so far because I would love to go for a zen walk with you!!! big hugs!!

Lynn said...

Blogaversary! Love it! You and I are about the same blog age, although I'm your senior by a few days. And expect the respect rightly due an old person, btw. You and I can be like the little old ladies that you see arm in arm, strolling down blog lane. The cars will honk and we'll go at a snail's pace, but everyone with a heart will think, "How adorable are they??"


Congratulations on your birthday, and here's a glass of prune juice raised in anticipation of many more!

Congratulations on completing your first year! Looking forward to many more :)

Oh, Chris. You completely made my day. Thank you so much for the kind words. They have been such an encouragement to me. I am so grateful to have met you.

Happy Very Extremely Belated Blogaversary!!!
(I'm so sorry.....I have the hardest time keeping up with blogs...including my own!!)
It has been wonderful visiting your blog...and what a lovely thing to come across just before I hit the pillows tonight...thank you so much for your kindness!

And for the record, I have been blogging for a few years now, and I still can't figure out how to schedule a post for a later date either!!
