One Amazing Year Of Blogging

Unbelievably, this week sees the completion of my first year of blogging. I can honestly say that I had no idea what was in store for me when I added my first post, all those months ago.

Since starting my blog in May 2007, I have had the fortune of communicating with some of the most wonderful people imaginable. I have also looked at things in a different light. I am sure you understand what I mean when I say that when ever I do something out of the ordinary or go somewhere, the first thing that comes into my mind is "Mmmmm, I must write a post about this!". Where ever I go, I automatically look for the perfect photograph that would fit nicely on the page. And most importantly, I always look forward to coming home from work and browsing others' blogs to catch up on what they have been doing.

Anywayz, before I start rambling too much, I just want to say thank you to all of you for making my experience so truly enjoyable!!!

I know what you mean about immediately wanting to share moments in your life via your blog. Its the care that we put into these internet labors of love that make them special. Kind of like The Little Prince and his rose.

Congratulations on your first anniversary, Graham!
