An Anniversary ... Almost

Hi. I hope you’ll help me celebrate a blog anniversary. During the summer of 2007, a bunch of aspiring paranormal romance writers banded together. We planned, schemed and dreamed. Then, in July, we opened "The Otherworld Diner."
I published my first blog on Thursday, Aug. 2, 2007 -- just to try out the idea. I didn’t know how successful it would be or how much fun I’d have.
Since then, four years have passed and I’ve racked up some 115 offerings. And has it been fun? Well, that 115 number is the answer. ...
I’d like to share the links of 13 of my favorites.

Thank you and please leave a comment. I love hearing from you.

  11. Happy Almost Anniversary!

    I can't wait to get some time to kick back and check them all out.

    I'm in the middle of my own planning, scheming and dreaming. Hopefully my new endeavor will see more four years and over a 100 offerings later, still happy and celebrating!

    Happy TT,

  16. Congratulations! And great compilation. I didn't know that 1/6 of all the beef comes from the great state of Texas. I'm in the city, so I have no idea what farming is here. That's pretty bad. I shouldn't admit it. Oh well.

  17. Julia Smith,
    Yes, we're blog friends who need to hook up--I'm sure we will at a conference or a convention soon.

  18. Forgetfulone,
    I didn't know about the volume of beef from Texas either until I did some research. I think it's cool you're from Texas. I hope to visit there someday soon.

  19. Wow. Has it really been 4 years? Time flies when you're blogging. *G*

    ReplyDelete
  20. Ah, I remember a few of these. Time sure flies, doesn't it?

    (Sorry for the late comment--my internet kept going out last week.)

  21. I started in 2005 and have posted at least 5 days a week since then!

    I loved the tongue twisters and the quotes on summer.
