Today is April Fools Day. Appropriately enough, it is also my first blogging anniversary. That's right my first real post occurred exactly one year ago today.
No, Two line Tuesday from me this week since one I haven't read a bit of fiction all week and two I want to do something different for this post. I want to look back at the past year a bit.
My first past was titled, Better Late Than Never and can be read here if you are interested. No one commented on it, but I think it was a decent introduction and first attempt. It wasn't until my fifth post that someone commented. Cicily Janus was the first person to comment. We had met at a writer's workshop a few months before. Alex Keto attended that same Arizona workshop.
Manic Mom was the first person to ever comment that I didn't actually know in person. That was lucky post number 13. Soon Grace(aka alternatefish) and WordVixen became regular commenters.
I'm proud to say my readership has been growing ever since. I have encountered a great many talented, funny, and entertaining bloggers via One Word, One Rung, One Day and I have no regrets about starting the blog. I thank all of you who take the time to read and comment. No I'm going to give you my personal favorite posts from each month that I've been at it. If you have the time read a few that you missed and drop a comment. I get an email for every comment regardless of how old the post may be.
April 2007 -- Payin' For Your Raisin' -- A post comparing writing a novel to the joyous and not so joyous task of raising kids.
May 2007 -- Flying Sasquatch Airlines -- A hairy tale of terror in the sky.
June 2007 -- A Leg To Stand On - FeedStore Chronicle #3 The Feedstore Chronicles were my stories about my days working for the most morally corrupt boss any one has ever seen and this is my favorite of those tales.
July 2007 -- Yes Ma'am, Right Away Ma'am -- This post was my reflection that most of the world's powerful forces are female.
August 2007 -- Call It What You Want, But ... -- My irritation with the word, Panini.
September 2007 -- 'Twas A Dark and Stormy Night - Tales of Yellow Flag -- A true Friday Night Lights story about my days as a High School Football ref in Texas.
That covers the first six months. I'll hit the next six tomorrow as I am running out of time.
But I do want to once again say thanks for reading and I'd love to hear what posts you have enjoyed the most, or what kind of posts you hope to see in the future.
Many thanks to all of you,
