It’s my anniversary

222250_gift_box_1.jpg

Well, sort of.

Crayon Writer was started in February 2007, I moved it from Blogger to WordPress in March 2007, and I moved it to my own domain in April 2007.

In any case, Happy anniversary, Crayon Writer! I’ve learned a lot this past year. I had never blogged before, and Crayon Writer introduced me to a whole new world…the blogosphere. It’s been quite a ride, and I’m not stopping any time soon.

I’m curious. How long have you been one of my readers? Let me know if you think you’re one of the oldest.

If you’re new here, welcome! Please take a look around, comment, and subscribe if you want to read more. I’ve found that I never remember to go back to a blog, even if I plan to, unless I subscribe to it.

This week would be a great time to go back to the beginning to see where it all started. Personally, I’ve noticed that I’m still dealing with some of the same conundrums I started with. For instance, I still haven’t enrolled my daughter in daycare, but I consider it almost daily. But now that she’s a year older, I may finally be able to handle it .

Enjoy traveling down memory lane with me, and feel free to add comments to some of my earlier posts. They’re quite empty.

      Hi there, and thanks for the congrats! I can’t believe it’s already been a year. I sure learned a lot about the business of blogging, even though that wasn’t my initial plan. Visit again anytime!

    First time reading, Happy Anniversary …stopped by through Encards..;)

    • Theda K. says:

      Entrecarders are great! Thanks for the kind thoughts, and I hope you come back (or subscribe so you don’t miss anything).

    Congratulations! I’ve been visiting for a couple of weeks, since I noticed you at EntreCard. You should treat yourself to something special, in honor of your anniversary!

      Hi GeekMom, thanks for commenting, and I’m glad your doctor said your baby is fine. Isn’t motthering a wonderful mystery?

      Hmmm…treat myself to something special…. Maybe a nice long shower and then a nice long nap when my daughter’s at the sitter’s. I might even sneak in a drink (a what??? Haven’t seen one of those in many, many, many months).

      Thanks for the ideas!

  5. Congratulations and all the best for your next year, Theda.

    I can imagine the ride you describe. Let’s see… I myself am in my third month of blogging now. One year? Sound like a LOT of time. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Your blog came to my eyes the first minutes you got started with Entrecard. Remember it quite well, as it was yesterday.

    • Theda K. says:

      Hi Marcus. Wow! Only three months? Is that your first blog? It’s doing great with Entrecard, and it’s very specialized. You’ll probably be getting a nice PR the next time it rolls around.

      Again, Entrecarders are great. I’m glad I joined such a wonderful community. I’ve met a lot of great people.

    Good work and well done to both of you – Blog and Blog Mistress, or should I say Hostess? I don’t think I’m one of your older readers, Theda, but I guess I still like you, and this blog, as much as any other reader you have. I dunno what you’re doing right, but you must be doing something right, cause Google really loves your blog – trust me. ๐Ÿ™‚

      Hi Ling,

      Thanks for being one of my most loyal commenters…probably the most loyal commenter, actually, even when we disagree ๐Ÿ™‚ . Why do you say Google loves me? One of these days I’ll start figuring out where I am on their search pages for various terms, but I never know what keywords to look for. ๐Ÿ™‚

      I’m off to check out these bedbug hunting dogs on your blog. Sounds interesting!

  7. Monique says:

    Congrats. What a big accomplishment.

    I’ve only been a reader for a few months… had it not been for entrecard, I doubt I would have ever found your site.

    Keep up the good work and I look forward to still be reading you on your next anniversary.

    Cheers Theda!

    You’ve got a very sophisticated blog going here and I enjoy stopping by. I think that I’ve only been visiting for maybe a month…little over. However long it’s been, I’ll be back!

    Have a wonderful day. ๐Ÿ˜€

    • Theda K. says:

      Hi Shelia, I read your blog almost daily too. Thanks for the compliment. I never quite thought of this blog as ‘sophisticated,’ but I like that! ๐Ÿ™‚

      ‘See’ you soon!

  9. Ada says:

    Happy bloggerversary!!! And many, many more years

    Ada’s last blog post..Welcome Spring

    • Theda K. says:

      Thanks! I was thinking of calling it a Bloggerversary too…but I couldn’t bring myself to say it. I’m glad you did! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Stumbled on your blog through Entrecard. Happy anniversary.

    Hey, congrats! They say that most bloggers give up within their first year, so if you manage to break the back of that, then you’re much more likely to continue and succeed. Best of luck for the future.

    • Theda K. says:

      Thank you very much! If I had known most bloggers give up in less than a year, I probably would have joined them. Luckily I didn’t really have any expectations with this blog when I started.

      Now, my other few startup blogs did have a purpose from the beginning, and I’ve noticed that I’ve lost interest in all of them.

      Visit again soon!

    Congrats to you! I’m just introducing myself to this wonderful world of blogs, and yours is one of the most genuine voices I’ve read yet. Not angry, not harsh, just telling us of your journeys in the blogosphere. Thanks!
