Call me narcissist if you must but this blog is all about ME. I have another blog about my kids, whom I love and adore writing about. But I was Nicole a long time before I was mom and I don't intend to give up being Nicole overnight.

You can read all about my kids at Naptime Optional.
Or you can follow along on our Arizona adventure on my 365 project blog.

Today is the one year anniversary of when I started blogging. Yup, one year ago today I wrote my very first public blog post.

It's certainly had it's ups and downs. When I first began I was totally addicted. I think it was the pent up writer in me trying to get out. Then I kind of lost interest for a little while because I thought nobody was out there and what's the point of writing if nobody reads it. Then I started finding more bloggy friends and it became fun again. Then life got crazy and despite an honest desire to write I just didn't have the time. That's actually where I'm at right now. I have more to write about then hours in the day to write. But come April after the primary activity is over, my son's birthday party is over and my sister's wedding is over I'm actually hoping that life will mellow a bit and I'll get to write more.

I had somebody ask me the other day what some of my hobbies where. When I told them I blogged they looked at me funny and said, "No, like real hobbies." Blogging is a REAL hobby, thank you very much!

So, a very happy blog-iversary to me a very Happy Fat Mattress Day to you!

Ooh, who was the polinu (that's your word for the day!) who said that blogging isn't a real "hobby"? Tell me who it is so I can write a scathing post on my blog abou him/her. There's a whole magazine called Artful Blogging that is dedicated to blogging.

I guess some people think that if you aren't scrapbooking or knitting that you aren't hobbying.

Congrats blogger niki. Yeah it is fun when people comment. The parents always read, but never comment, so I am still working on that one for now.

Krista said...
