Wordsmithonia Is Now 2 Years Old


I don't know where the time has gone but not only have I been blogging for two years, I'm 3 days late posting about it.  I knew my blogoversary was coming up, but I didn't realize that it went by without me thinking about it.  When I first started blogging, I didn't realize it was something that I would come to rely on and become such an integral part of me, that I can't see my life without it in it.

Because of blogging I have met some wonderful people who have helped restore my faith in the human race.  They have been gracious with their time, brain power, and have even provided me with a shoulder to lean on from time to time.  Without those in the book blogging community being so open and welcoming, this would never have gone as far as it has.  So I would like to say a big Thank You to everyone that I've gotten to know over the last two years and I look forward to many more years to come.

I don't know that I would still be doing this, two years later, if it wasn't for all of you.  I feel as if I've made some good friends over the last few years, friends that I couldn't imagine not talking too.  You guys have given me more support that you will ever know and have helped me deal with personal issues without me ever having to talk to you about it  Just having people that I can talk to about anything else, other than what is going on in my personal life, is an amazing thing to have.  You have given me something that I didn't know I needed, until I had it.

Once again I want to thank everyone for making the last two years mean so much to me.  I hope we have many more years together.

Happy two years to you, my friend! If it wasn't for meeting you, I probably wouldn't be a book blogger either (or I would have started much later than I did)! I'm so glad that I met you and that we have become friends. This world wouldn't be the same without you and I'm glad that we are a source of comfort to you. Here's to many more years of blogging and camaraderie!

"You have given me something that I didn't know I needed, until I had it." - That's exactly how I feel! I'm trying to think of how long I've known you, Ryan - I think it's been about 1 1/2 years since I first came upon Wordsmithonia. But it's been a pleasure getting to know you, hearing about your son, your straight-out-of-a-book childhood, and, of course, reading your very thoughtful reviews. Congratulations on this milestone and cheers to many more years of blogging!

Happy 2 Years!! It's amazing how fast time goes and I'm glad that you're still here. I love reading your reviews of books that probably wouldn't get any time dedicated to them whatsoever. Here's to many more!!
