One Year

Today, one year ago, I wrote my first words on this humble blog. Hard to believe. This blog was and is intended as a chronicle for my grandchild. It's been a fair success.

As of today the blog has one hundred and seventy-six followers and over one hundred sixty-five thousand hits. Not bad for a one year.

And, its all because of you, my kind and generous readers.


Thank you.

Stephen

  7. Congrats darlin'. Before my LIFE IS GOOD blog got blown to bits by a hacker, I had been blogging for eleven years. I had precious old photos on that blog and believed it would be the perfect way to save them forever.

  11. Stephen,
    congratulations!! I must say, although I do not often reply or respond to your posts, I do read you everyday, sometimes twice a day. You have become a member of our family as I tell my sweet hubby the pertainent posts (i think they are all pertinent, personally) and share your joys and sorrows with the rest of the family, especially my daughter whose losses continue to haunt her everyday. Despite her grieving, she prays for you and Little Bit every day, as do hubby and I. Love your blog and to miss a day creates an empty spot in my life. Just know that regardless of my lack of response, I continue to read and pray for you and your precious family. You have become an extension of ours
