On June 1st, 2006 I penned my first post.  It was a pretty anticlimactic beginning.  I had spent days choosing the template and thinking wondrous thoughts and anticipating my June 1 starting date — and when the time came, I had nothing to say.  (I know some of you are boggled by that thought.)

My first post:

My Own Blog

Today I decided I would start my own blog. All week long while thinking about this I had a dozen or so witty things to say. Now here I am and my mind is blank. Blank. Blank. Blank. Sigh. These are the things that make up the typical days in my life.

The comments:

Terrace said…
YAY! Hopefully another helpless blog addict is on her way

Doug said…
I’m curious. Had you blogged before and this is the first that’s yours or are you new to blogging?

QuillDancer said…
New — new, new, new, new, new — doesn’t it show?

I had been reading Terrace’s blog for years (still do) and she is essentially responsible for me starting my own blog — the pusher who began my addiction, as she clearly admits! And Doug holds the distinction of being the first stranger to comment on my blog.  I am glad to claim him now as friend.

Also, my first blog was on Blogspot.  The title was, “A Day in The Life,” and I had my template custom made.  It’s still up.  Pop on over and take a look.  Oh how times change!  LOL!


  1. Wow… I only BARELY remember that blog… but I remember some of the POSTS!!! That should count for something! I wasn’t a regular with you yet back then…. Happy Bloggiversary Quilly!

    Melli’s last blog post..ATrash Can Garden . . .

  2. Happy Blogoversary!! I think the template of the old one is cute!

    I do actually keep a running list of post ideas — I jot them down to hopefully develop later — for those times I sit down at the computer and raw a blank. Sometimes I draw from that list — sometimes I forget it’s there. Some of the thoughts listed there have been there for a long time without getting any further, but some have developed into blog posts.

    I;m glad you’re here on the blogosphere, and may you have many more blogoversaries!

  3. Quilly,
    I feel like such a bad blogger–so out of the loop. I guessed bear on tap right away but was waaaaaayyy to late. You host such a fun blog here. Thank you so much for the kind words a few posts back. I felt like I was reading one of those blurbs on the back of a paperback book where one author says nice things about another author. I mean this….You made my day.
    By the way, our trip to Hawai’i was wonderful. We were only on the big Island but it was wonderful.

    1. Tom — ah yes, but you aren’t the typical ‘net jetting blogger. You’re here to write, not to visit.

  4. Happy Blggaversary.. May you suffer the addiction for many years to come.

    That was a cute template. My old blogspot blog was bought by people who ended up doing nothing with it and now it is a disaster.

      1. That was misleading.
        Actually I couldn’t sell it as it didn’t belong to me technically, so when they apporached me with the offer I arranged the donation to “women for women”, and once that occurred and I was notified, they got the blog.

  5. You’ve come a long way baby! I’m flying *high* to support your “habit.”
    You make me laugh so hard many times, I snort (and thank goodness, none of you hear me make that sound.) This addiction is a safe one and one I enjoy sharing with you. You know I’m a blog fan of yours.

    Happiest of Blogaversaries & best wishes for many more to come! BTW, I also began on blogspot, a few years earlier than you and due to a “pusher”, but I deleted that blog instead of exporting it. I retained its records, though. It is interesting to look back!

    Off to see your old blog.

    1. Hey Lynne — welcome back to blogland. I am too “stuck” on myself and cannot bear the thought of deteting a single thing!

  6. Happy anniversary! You know, I do not even know my blogging anniversary date. You have prompted me to go look. I know it has been more than a year. I peeked at your old template and it was very cute! I like to change things up a bit every now and then too. Seems we get bored with the same old thing day in and day out!

  7. I must have found you in the early days of that blog, since I started blogging in April of the same year.

    Happy blogiversary!
