THANKING MY SON............

On December 28, 2005, I started this blog site. My son, had had Nomadic Tendencies (his site) up for quite awhile, and it was a great way for us to stay in touch, and for me to share the events of his travels around the world.

At that time, I was not satisfied with my job (only to quit 6 months later), and I found that being able to "vent", whether anyone else even read the damn thing, was very cathartic.

Initially, I just wanted the page to look nice, and not sound stupid. Most of my readers at that time were my son, his friends, and my very best friend. Actually, it wasn't being utilized for profit or fame - just for me!

As the months passed, theson helped me learn how to place pictures on the site, embed videos and various other tactics. He helped get a stat counter, and even showed me where I could get various polls to run on the site. So as time passed, I literally GREW with my site.

I just have to give credit where credit is due - and that is to theson for giving me an escape mechanism - one that I have have hours and hours of fun with as well.

The politics, stories of the moments, big news item of the day...whatever...trust me, I have had had fun with this site.

I hope everyone has had a wonderful Holiday Season and that 2010 will be a great year for us all!

Happy BLOG-VERSARY to me...............and of course..........to y'all!!

Happy 2010!!!

It a strange thing about blogs - some connect with me and some don't. Everyone has a opinion about the day to day events but I have always found your particular take on the world to be refreshing and unique. I totally agree with what you have to say. I know my blog changed my life for the better. Happy Blogaversary and I am glad you are still here to give us your perspective.
