blogiversary !

01. I am about to celebrate my first blogiversary in a couple of days.
02. I don't think I need to say how wonderful it has been since you blog too!
03. I had a different url, with way too many ads because it was for free. It seems I changed the name of my blog every other week at the beginning but my name only once ...
04. My first post was about a local festival.
05. and I played Michele's Meet & Greet comment game. Thanks, Michele, for a great concept!
06. Utenzi was the first one to leave me a comment. Thanks, utenzi!
07. Thanks to each and all of you who have been kind enough to leave a comment here. If you still haven't left any, today is your big chance! and now the following blogging questions (8-13) are brought to you by monday madness :
08. How long have you been blogging?
- Oh, let's see - about a year :)
09. How many times have you taken a break from blogging?
- I haven't... should I?
10. How long is the longest you've gone, so far, without posting on your blog?
- Three weeks, because I was gone on vacation. I seldom blog when on vacation because I am either too busy or the internet connection has to be paid...
11. Have you ever met, in person, a blogger on your blogroll?
- YES! I had the privilege of meeting rashbre earlier this year. He is still the one and only, lol!
12. How often do you update/change the 'extra' stuff on your blog?
- I used to play with the template a lot without much success due to my lack of knowledge until the wonderful Denise rescued me and gave me an extraordinary facelift. It was actually a complete makeover. Thanks, Denise!
And another generous blogger made my avatar and three personalized TT headers (see one example above), thanks tnchick !

13. Do you think you'll be blogging for years to come?
- Only if you promise to drop by every so often! AND you leave a comment ... :D

  20. I've been blogging for about a year and a half. I think I've only ever missed 2 days in a row. Even on vacation I blog about it and during it. I don't know how long I can keep up this pace, but I also can't imagine dropping it all. Happy blogversay! Mine are "on line."

  21. Love your TT header. Hehe, if I'd known about it earlier I might have asked to borrow it for my TT post this week ;). Mine's all about coffee.

  22. Here from Michele.

    Happy Blogiversary! Who knows, perhaps we will see this word in the next edition of Webster's Dictionary.

  23. Hi mar! I love stopping by your place since I seem to recall that you also have teenagers which gives us much to talk about! Happy Blogiversary! You know, that I've had my blog about 2-1/2 years! It has truly changed my life. i just love it and I think of all of my blogfriends as such great people.

    Hope you're well. Have a great day!

  24. Congratulations, dear Mar...WOW! Almost a year...Fantastic!
    I started blogging almost a year ago, myself...I too had a different blog for about a month...then, the blog I have now I started November 7th...So, my Blogiversary will be coming up pretty soon....
    I hope you do stay around this wonderful Blgesphere for-ever!!!

  25. Okay, just checked. My Chaotic Home blog is 11 months old today. My boys' blog is a bit older. I will continue to blog FOREVER. Have met way too many cool people this way to ever consider quitting. ;)

    I've posted my Thursday Thirteen. Enjoy!

  26. Have a happy Blogiversary! It's a wonderful day.

    Have a Happy!

  27. Happy Blogversary!!

    I have been blogging for a while..2 years in Jan. I don't think I've ever taken much of a break except for when we moved or went on vacation. I guess about a week off.
