Happy Birthday Sweet Blog 'O Mine!

So here we go, new year new name!  I chose this name simply because it's Tyler's new favorite quote (Thank you Michael Scott!).  
Anywho, I'd like to give a shout out to blogs.  What they mean to me and how much fun it's been having one and reading others in my life.  I can't imagine all the information I have been able to learn from others posts.  I would have never know so much of it without this forum.  It's really helped me keep in touch with girlfriends that I wouldn't normally talk to on a regular basis, as well as meet new friends that I would have never had relationships with otherwise.  It's been the ONLY journaling that I have done in a good 5 years and for that I feel better about myself.  I know that someday my children will be able to look back to when they were born and see all this fun stuff that was going on in our lives.  I would never have kept a journal this detailed, so for that I am grateful.  I know there are some who snuff the whole blogging thing, thinking it's a waste of time and a little too risky to put on the internet, but to those few I say KISS IT!  Someday they may catch on and someday they may be proven right when I have identity theft brought on by my blog, but until then I enjoy doing it and I enjoy keeping in touch with friends that, like I said, I wouldn't normally keep in touch with otherwise.  You can live your whole life afraid of using the resources we have in this modern day or you can make great use of them and get on board.  Sure there's a chance that something bad may happen, but there's also a chance that I may get robbed at Walmart.  I say live your life and focus on the positive and come what may.  The Lord knows what's going on and if that's what's meant to happen to me then so be it.  Nothin' I can do about it.  
       Anyway ,I love my blog, I wish I could spend more time on it, but it's great when I get something posted and I don't let it rule my life when I don't have time for it.  We have the perfect relationship.  It's never offended if I ignore it but it's always there for me when I need it.  I just hope that each of you reading this realizes how wonderful and fun this blogging thing is.  It helps me vent to those who care to know what's going on in my life instead of calling one person at a time to explain every little detail of every little story to.  In a way it's a time saver.  I guess I can look at it that way?  Right?  
So a toast to the blog!  Here's to you and all the information you contain. All the pictures, stories, links and movies you hold.  Thanks for being such a great part of my days, 

Salute'!

{Make sure and leave me some love, there will be a gift, I mean it is a birthday and all!}
