Ms Bookish and One Year of Blogging!

Today I’m visiting Belle at Ms Bookish, who asked about my writing process. (And until now, I didn’t realize I had one.) So stop by her site and leave a comment. Or snark. Either one!

Yesterday was my blog’s one year anniversary. Wow, a whole year of blogging! I had no idea what to expect when I began, either. Now, 219 posts and 420 plus followers later, I think it’s damned cool! Thanks everyone for keeping me going.

And NaNo is going well. I'm right about on target. I'm not a fast typer and I'm taking my time, composing my words with care. Hit 14,881 last night.

I do miss everyone though...

time to stop wearing diapers, now that you have turned one year.

Happy One Year!!!
Your nano word count is respectable especially for being a hunt and peck typist!

Summer said...

Happy blog birthday! I can't believe your wordcount is that high, considering you do the two-finger tango.

Mason Canyon said...

Congratulations on a year of blogging and 400-plus followers, not to mention the release of your book. Hope more wonderful things continue to happen for you.

don't worry, there's only 20 days left in NaNo, then things will get back to normal. Well as normal as can be expected with the holidays around the corner

Great year for you, Alex -- blog and book published. You deserve it all. Keep up the good work.

Hmm, it never even occurred to me to think about my one year blogging anniversary. Looks like I passed my one year on August 15. Oh, well.

Happy one year anniversary! And good going on nano! I'm a little low on words, but I'm really liking how it's shaping up. Holidays start tomorrow so I'm hoping to get time off for good behavior and get a few more chunks of time to write... I hope! :) Have a great week Alex!

It's been a quick year. Well done Alex.

Franklin Beaumont said...

A year goes by so fast, doesn't it? If you can look back on it and see that you've accomplished something, perhaps something you set out to do, then that's when you know that you're really getting somewhere. Congrats on your accomplishments Alex, and keep on writing.

Happy Blogday!
It is hard to get around and do NaNo, but I get there in the end.

Happy Scribbling, Alex.

Powdered Toast Man said...

I'm impressed with how many followers you have after only one year. I hit my year mark over the summer and I have a third of the amount of followers you have. But it's not a competition.

Congrats.

Thanks, everyone!
