Two Years Ago Today

… I blogged for the first time, right here!

This is how that first post looked. (I’ve added a few bells and whistles since then) It’s a lovely little story about the possibilities of flight.

These years of being a blographer, have been a wonderful flight through soaring updrafts, and near-earth collisions; have chronicled my move from being an urban Vancouverite to an island in the middle of Widderlake dwelling country gal; have offered me the great privilege of making some wonderful blog friends.

Thank you all for being there and listening, and engaging.

While I’m in a ‘thankyou-ing’ frame of mind …

To Audrey Shaffer (of The Writers Chatroom fame) for her fabulous introductory course in how to build your author brand and platform. That was what kickstarted me into this blog in the first place.

To my wife, Mrs Widds, with whom all things are possible.

The best thing though, has been finding my writerly voice. Posting something meaningful once a week (on and off) has been a challenging adventure that I wouldn’t’ve missed for quids.

      … and straight on ’til morning! (I took a moment there to decide if I wanted to use the word, ‘straight’ -being a lesbian author and all) *cue wicked laughter, heh heh heheh*

    Hooray for two years of blogging! I hadn’t realized we’d been blogging for roughly the same amount of time. Looking forward to reading the blogserial!

      I read a sampling of some old posts – narcissism anyone – and realised there’s a whole bunch of stories that I only hinted at … I’ve started a list!


  6. Congrats! I’m very glad I “met” you online, and I look forward to many more years of blogging at one another to come! 🙂
