Happy Anniversary

It came and went and I didn't even notice it, so preoccupied have I been with publishing and writing and eema-ing (mothering) and being a wife/friend/volunteer/etc.

I have officially been blogging for one year and twelve days.


Maybe it's time to make this blog a little less random events in my life and focus it a bit more on books and beliefs. (Maybe. That might mean more work for me, so it might not happen quite so easily, but we'll see...)

Rav todot (many thanks) to all those who have visited and read and commented, some of whom have become good blog-friends. Even if I don't know who you are. :-) It's the journey that's important to me, not the identity of my current travel-mates. Thanks for being here.

And to those who have read but not commented, please feel free to say hi, share your opinion (respectfully).

The thing I like about blogging that is impossible with book-writin' is that we can have a discussion here. The closest I've come to having a conversation or discussion through a novel is when two of my most trusted readers, Tricia and Amy, read a manuscript (Tricia read the first one, Amy's read parts of the second) and wrote everything from corrections and questions to comments meant for the characters' ears. But as enjoyable as that is, it doesn't come close to the exchange of ideas on a blog.

So as we head into Year Two, I look forward to continuing conversations with those folks I've met and new conversations with those whom I haven't yet met.

Shavua tov!

We all assume there have been no new posts because you have been too busy working on your story - right?????
