A year with Suburbia (still awaiting escape!)

I've been blogging for a year. (I wonder how many hours of sitting here staring at the screen, that that amounts to?) Can you believe it? The year has passed so quickly and I think (know) it has been a catalyst for change in my life. Anyway, I've been so busy blogging recently that I missed my bloggyversary( 3rdMarch). Useless creature! And I was so looking forward to a party! So, seeing as my inspiration is low, and I've missed the date anyway, here is my first ever post . I'm sure you have far too much to do to read through it all, but suffice to say, this time last year, I had no idea what was in store! And here is a defining moment .

Something has changed, lots of things have changed, but I think the most important thing is the fact that I am no longer reliving the past, but am looking forward to the future, sometimes with trepidation, but looking forward nevertheless, whatever it brings.

Happy Blogoversary ... I wonder where you will be in another year's time. (And I mean 'where' in terms of thoughts, emotions, etc. rather than geographically speaking). x

Happy Blogging Anniversary.
I read your first post just now and also the Defining Moment.
Still felt the second one was really moving. Brilliant piece of writing.
Who knows what will happen to any of us within another year?

'Useless creature' made me laugh out loud! Happy bloggyversary to you.

I started reading your blog about 2 weeks after you started so have seen lots of change during that time. Its still one of my first point of call when i have some spare time and never disappoints, congratulations

Well done for coming so far. I'm glad you can now look forward to the future. You can make it whatever you want it to be! (Well maybe with the exception of a billionaire living on a tropical Island.. but hey who knows!)

Happy blogiversary, and I do hope that in a year's time you'll be in a much happier place and all the anguish and turmoil you're going through now will have resolved itself.

Happy Anniversary sweetie. Gosh a year eh? And so much has changed. Or will do.

Doesn't your first posts seem naive and innocent? Mine seems to. And the things you realise you learn along the way.

Blogging really has changed our lives.

Bless you and take care xxxx

Well done for getting to a point where you can look forward - That is a wonderful moment, full of potential, possibility and some trepidation, admittedly...

Your mistaken, Suburbia, you've been blogging for much much longer than a year. Hulla agrees. It was ages ago that lovely Lane recommended you. Still, if you're going to press on with this false-memory maddness, happy Blogoversary!

I recall entering this blogging realm about the same time! And what a year it has been--all the way around.

Here's to Looking Forward!

Happy Blogversary!

I was trying to recall how I found you but I can't remember. Anyway I'm glad I did.

It's good that you're looking forward. :)

You missed your blogaversary, and I missed your posting about it! Sorry, I was gone yesterday...ironically, I just put up my own blogaversary post an hour ago. I remember your commenting on one of my early posts about rabbits, an April Fool's joke, and I hopped over here to visit. I would always visit other new bloggers, because I appreciated their visits and wanted to encourage them as well. But something about your writing struck a chord with me, Suburbia, and I've been coming back regularly ever since.

Reading your first post and then "the defining moment" (I wonder what happened to my comment--I know I read that post and began to sense a change in your life then), I realize the "old" funny and poignant Suburbia has often been missing lately. I am wishing and hoping you can get through this stressful time and can be the person you WANT to be once again.

Oh gosh, does this make any sense?? I just wanted to say I've enjoyed getting to know you this past year and hope to be reading your stories for many more.
