I totally missed my blog’s first birthday. The first post was published on July 4, 2007. And actually, that feels like it can’t be right, since I spent the 4th of July last year in downtown DC with my family, then in the evening my family and the K family, whose house I was living in at the time, had a little party. So I really don’t remember using my computer at all that day, much less doing something as monumental as starting a blog. Hm. And anyway, even though the blog was officially born in July, it didn’t really take off until November, so it doesn’t even feel like I’ve been working on the blog for a whole year. But a birthday is a birthday, so happy 1 year to my blog. Here’s hoping that it sees much creativity and more regular updates in the year that lies ahead :-).
