Happy anniversary to my underpants! Or at least to stories about my underpants.
That’s right, folks, one year ago today, I went ahead and published my first post - and the world was never the same.
Or, it’s actually exactly the same, except now there is one more blog out there AND my family and CB have had to go into witness protection. But whatever.
I mean, in the course of a year, I have flashed a stranger at the gynecologists, gone to Dunkin Donuts with an eye mask on my forehead, have had half of my body become an admiral in the navy, gotten caught in a hurricane, gotten lost in a sea of Irish people, gone pants-free and scared my neighbor, almost gotten shived on New Jersey Transit, figured out how NOT to celebrate Valentine’s Day, continuously worried about kids today, judged other people’s joy, and had the blog taken over by a boy.
And that was just the stuff I told you about! (check out the archives on the sidebar for more!)
But I think the coolest part of this past blogging year has been all of you guys. Fellow bloggers, like Lauren Filing-Jointing, helping and giving me great advice in the early days, other bloggers like AwkwardlyAlive and Pleasantly Peculiar and The Growing Foodie continuing to follow my tales and spread the word to their readers, and all of YOU who comment, follow, “like”, and all of the other randomness that comes with the blogging world.
SAMU (all the cool kids are saying it) has also gotten recognized this year by SkinnyScoop as one of the Top 25 Humor Blogs, and the SITSgirls and BlogHer have been incredibly supportive in promoting this blog to the masses!
Also, if you don’t currently follow me on Facebook, you might not know yet that three of my posts are currently up for "Voices of the Year” in the humor category over on BlogHer.
Um, if you vote for them, I might get asked to read one of them aloud this year at BlogHer ’13 and that would just be ridiculous and fun and anxiety-inducing AND a great post. So……wanna vote?
Oh my God, I'm actually annoyed with myself at the obnoxiousness of this post right now. I'm so sorry. Let's pretend that I didn't just link to a billion different things in one post AND beg you to vote for something you read for fun and to avoid work and IT'S NOT LIKE YOU'RE THE BLOGGESS, BECKY, GET A GRIP.
Whew. Thanks guys, I needed that.
But THANK YOU for your support, your "likes", your comments, your emails, and the laughs you bring ME every week. There'd literally be no point to this blog without you. No, seriously. That's how blogs work.
Happy Thursday, everyone! And happy blogerversary!
