Dear Blog, Forgive Me

Whoa. I totally missed Bonny Glen’s seventh anniversary. Seven years! Jiminy crickets!

I meant to do something retrospectivey. I meant to do something, period. But I forgot all about it until I saw Melanie’s anniversary post—our blogs share a birthday.

Well, I’m forever sending birthday cards late. Maybe I’ll rustle up something next week. Right now I’m too busy putting the finishing touches on my GeekMom post for tomorrow—we’re a stop in the Wrinkle in Time 50th Anniversary blog tour; do stop by tomorrow and take a peek—and squeeing over interior sketches for Inch and Roly. So: my big nostalgic stroll through blog-memory lane will have to wait.

But, golly, seven years. Thanks for sticking with me, gang. You’re still my favorite part of blogging.

    Gee, I meant to say something to you too, and was going to include a link on my birthday post. But with the nasty cold we all have it totally slipped my mind. So this is my late birthday card, Happy Birthday, Bonny Glen!

    By the way, I found the first time I mentioned you on my blog. It was 2006, three days before Bella was born, and I’d just discovered your Tidal Homeschooling post: That was when I was in my phase of researching about homeschooling and blogging about it while I still had leisure pre-baby.

    I enjoy your blog so much and am always adding books that you write about to my never ending book list. Happy birthday.

    Oh Happy Day!! I have been a groupie of yours since the archaic days of CCM and thank you for all that you have blessed our family with. . . We have loved nearly every single book suggested! After reading a post of yours mentioning more delctable titles, my eldest daughter stated, “She is soo cool!”. Cheers!

    **bemused** Oddly enough, I was just thinking about this this morning — that I’ve been blogging for six years which seems like such a long time (in a weird way, much longer than six or seven years — ten at least. The world has changed so dramaticslly in terms of the internet and global culture in the last ten years), and connecting that to you because you were one of the first blogs I read and you were such an inspiration to me in terms of picking up the blogging reigns myself.
