Pen And Paper is ONE year old today and what a year it's been.
Hard to believe how long it took me to start blogging. After talking about it for years (and I mean years) Husband dearest 'set me up' with blogger in August 2008 and yet it still took me up until April 2009 to produce my first post which you can see by clicking HERE.
As it says in my profile, Pen And Paper started life as a blog :
..... mainly based around my love of books and silly jokes, (though) there will, no doubt, be one or two other things thrown in as the fancy takes me.
And though Book Reviews (click HERE for my first) and Silly Jokes (likewise, click HERE for my first) are still the mainstay of my blog, it's funny how the 'fancy' has largely taken me away from these and onto other things such as my 'It's a Mad Old World' and 'Religious/Cultural Celebrations' posts. Still, I suppose we all grow and change over time, hopefully for the better.Yes, hard to believe that far from (metaphorically speaking) dragging me, kicking and screaming TO Pooter, I'm now dragged, kicking and screaming AWAY from him as the number of times I've posted over the year will testify.
But my posting is only part of the story that is Pen And Paper. You, the people, who read/follow/comment are the thing that really makes blogging such a pleasure so a million thanks each and everyone of you.
Not just my blogs birthday - today also sees another family member celebrate his. Nephew, Christopher is 17 today. Many Happy Returns to him.
One more thing, many thanks to all those who entered my Blogoversary Book Giveaway. After deliberation by my panel of judges, I'll post the winner tomorrow.
