Many Waters Turns 1

One year ago today I restarted my blog.  I had taken a grad school class in  June 2008 and we each had to start a blog as part of the course requirements.  I created the blog and the required posts and then did nothing with it.  I started reading some blogs after I was married and realized that I could do do what they were doing; sharing what was happening in our lives.  I thought that family & friends would be my main audience.  I quickly found lots of other blogs that I enjoyed reading.  To my surprise people, actual people who had never met me in real life, wanted to read my blog.  For some reason they wanted to read what I was writing.  Crazy.  I'm still amazed that I have almost 300 followers.  I am thankful for each and every one of you!  Thanks so much for your support, your comments and coming read what I post!  I've also enjoyed being able to meet some of my bloggy friends in person.  I've had a great time getting to know Sierra, Wifey, Mrs. Monkey and the Random Army Wife better over coffee or lunch.  I'm also looking forward to meeting Mrs.Facehead soon!  If you're ever in the Pacific Northwest and would like to meet up, let me know!  

I'm excited for another year of Many Waters.  I won a blog makeover from Tiffany over at Hello Tiffany.  I'm very excited to get a new look, so keep an eye out for it!  I also recently joined twitter (you can find me @Poekitten).  I've been having fun learning the ropes.  A Facebook page for Many Waters has also been created.  I'd love it if you "liked" it.


If I had been on top of things I would have done a giveaway but hopefully I'll have one soon!

Happy Blogaversary to me!

I love to hear your thoughts, so please share! If you know us in real life, please refrain from using our names to help us keep some semblance of privacy.

Also, I ignore comments that only ask for a follow back. The best way to get me to YOUR blog is to leave comment showing that you've read SOMETHING on my blog. Thanks!
