Wordsmithonia Turned 4 Years Old! (11 Days Ago)


So I'm not sure how I missed it, but the blog turned four on July 18th.  I'm really thinking I need to call it my three and eight tenths birthday though.  I just don't feel, well I know, that I haven't been around that much this year.  A lot of changes have taken place in my personal life, changes that have taken over my entire life, including my time to blog.  I feel as if I owe you guys an apology for not being around as much.  

I haven't had the time to post as much as I would like, and I really haven't had the time to comment nearly as much as I used to.  So for that, I'm sorry.  I keep thinking the time will come back to me, and in part, it has.  I need to recommit myself to you guys to do a better job over the next year, and give you guys a reason to keep coming back.

I also owe you guys a huge thank you for sticking with me over the years.  Your friendship and support means more to me than I can ever truly express.  I adore every single one of you and if I could, I would give you a huge hug to let you know how much I do appreciate you.  I hope you continue to stick with me, that you will keep coming back, and that you forgive my lack of comments on your own blogs.  I read more than I comment right now, and you guys never fail to teach or entertain me.  I love you all, and I hope you guys know how much.

Congrats, Ryan! (I missed my own blogiversary--by a lot. So, I'm just going to try and party more next year.)

I'm definitely glad you're still blogging and I've appreciated the comments you have been able to make over at my place. Good luck with all the changes you've had going on.

Happy 4th Blogoversary Ryan. You are such a sweetie, there are always times, when real life is just so busy, somethings got to give and that goes for all of us. I know I've been terribly slack with the commenting the last few months, it's hard to keep all the balls in the air.

I'm glad you're still blogging, no matter how often and I love it when you have the time to pop in. You don't get rid of us that easy haha

Ryan, Happy Blogoversary. Please don't apologize, friends that don't understand that life comes before blogging aren't really friends. My blog turned three in March without any fanfare because I was still moderating the B&N forum then and only used my blog to mirror that, now that's all changed and I love blogging. I am glad you're life is calming down enough to smell the roses.
I always look forward to your thoughts and comments here and wherever you happen to be that I am too.
xoxo

Happy Blogoversary, Ryan! Sorry I missed this post earlier this week. I know how you feel. We both have had a lot of changes in our lives, but we will persevere, right? You'll never have to worry about me abandoning you. I may be late, or lax, in stopping by, but I'll always be around. =O) Incidentally, my four year blog b-day is tomorrow. I'm afraid there won't be much fanfare on my part though. LOL!
