Today I feel like a real milestonemason.
Ok, that’s probably not a word, but it sounds good and seems to fit the occasion.
The tagline for this blog reads “Life At the Crossroads”. Little did I know when I penned that tagline, that today my blog would be very much at the crossroads. For today is where my 100th post meets the first anniversary of this blog.
Hard to believe that a year ago I pressed that daunting blue “publish” button for the very first time.
Over the past year, I have:
Raised The Curtain on the journey through mid-life
Raised The Curtain on creativity which had long laid dormant
Raised The Curtain on raising sons and parenting teenagers survival tactics
Raised The Curtain on what it means to be Australian and live in Australia
Raised The Curtain on my introspective musings occasionally spouting some wisdom
Raised The Curtain on the humorous aspects of life
Raised The Curtain on aspects of life bordering on the ridiculous
Raised The Curtain on my writing skills
all through the vehicle of this blog.
Most importantly, I have also:
Raised The Curtain to my emotions. To those whose blogs I follow, I say thank you for allowing me a glimpse into your world. Thank you for making me laugh, for making me cry, for making me feel connected and for making me think and marvel at your amazing talents. It’s been a great year of discovery.
Raised The Curtain on some wonderful blogging friendships. No matter that thousands of miles may physically separate us, it seems like you’re just next door. The following bloggers deserve special thanks for making this past year of blogging a fun and inspiring affair:
Lisa at Life With The Top Down Sisyphus at Glass & Paper
Chris at Word Play DAF at dearanonymousfriend
Lynne at Free Penny Press Elyse at Fifty Four And a Half
Tess at How the Cookie Crumbles John at The Sound of One Hand Typing
Jen at Ramblings From A Mum Carrie at The Write Transition
Elkement at The Theory And Practice of Trying to Combine Just Anything
Gaupowitz at Guapola Arlee at Tossing It Out
BTG at Musings of An Old Fart Jen at News of The Times
All quality blogs from quality bloggers.
And thank you to ALL of my followers and those who have dropped a like or a comment or two here at Curtaindom. Your little bit of cyberlove is much appreciated.
Great motivation for another year of pulling at ropes and letting in more light.
Not sure where the crossroads will lead, but I am grateful that the blogging community is here to share the journey.
200 posts by the second anniversary? Who knows?
But here’s to Raising the Curtain just a little higher one post at a time.
