It's my first blogiversary!

.
.
How appropriate that the traditional first anniversary gift is paper:
.
Blogging has returned me to journal writing. As a gift to myself I have begun the project of printing the last year of blogging onto paper.
Blogging has returned me to books. Through blogging friends who make book recommendations and share their enthusiasm for reading my own love of reading has been rediscovered.
Blogging has introduced me to good mail, pretty stationery, and pen pals.
*
This experience of blogging is worth far more than the paper it's not printed on!

I am so happy for your blogiversary...mostly because it has enabled me to know you...what a blessing!

I always wanted to do the traditional anniverary gift thing...David did not think much of that idea. But there is something charming about it don't you think?

Happy Anniversary! I wouldn't have guessed you were only a year old, you are so wise and thoughtful and creative...like you've been at it for ages. I'm so glad to know you through the blogging world!

I think I had an anniversary last week too, I've never kept track. I'll have to go look at my archives.

Congratulations. When I first heard about blogs, they were a mystery to me. I am grateful to finally get it. I agree with everything you said.
