Happy birthday, Whore!

One year ago today, I published my first blog post.

At the time, I never could have imagined how much starting a blog would change my life. People I've met, opportunities that have opened up, perspectives I've heard, the ways my own views have changed. I'm no where near the top in any sorts of rankings when it comes to visitor traffic, but writing this blog is one of the things I'm most proud of in my life.

Sometimes I'm still in shock that people actually take the time to read what I have to say and comment about it. I'd probably still write even if no one read, but all you readers up the fun quotient by a lot. Thanks so much for reading.

It's been a pretty good year. Here's to many more.

    I agree, blogging has changed my perspectives a GREAT DEAL as well. Well, reading and commenting more than writing my own, but still.

    Aerin, I love Tori too! I felt guilty for it as a teenager because her music "drove away the Spirit" but now I embrace it. :-)
