Goodbye 2008

I love to play around on my blog. It’s a terrible, time-wasting habit, but I’m completely obsessed. I’ll think up something new to blog about, and I’ll scour the internet for just the right pictures to go with it, or I’ll get an idea about something new to put in the sidebar, and I just won’t be able to concentrate on anything else until I figure out how to do it and it looks just right. Just ask DH, he calls me a blog addict. And I am—I cannot deny it. I inhale when I smoke blog.

As I was wasting time, yet again, just messing with my archive, I realized that 2008 is the first year in which I have posted something every single month. In the past, I’ve had spurts of activity on this thing, but this year, I made it all the way through without ever getting tired of blogging. (Excuse me whilst I pat myself on the back.) I still only have a little over 50 posts, so I guess I have something to work on in 2009 because I know about 8542675 other blog friends who can write 50 posts in their sleep. (You know who you are, stop raising the bar!)

But, even with all of the fun I derive from the actual designing and posting of the blog, I have to say, the best part of my blogging experience is you. Yes, you! You have no idea how thrilling it is to come back and see this at the bottom of the screen:
So, I just want to say thank you, to all of you who come here and read my gibberish, and a special thanks to those of you brave enough to comment! Your comments warm my heart. =)

This is officially my last post of 2008. Thanks for making my year a little brighter!

Merry Christmas to you and Happy New Year!

Joy To Everyone

P.S. Look for a redesign in 2009!

Your blog is heads and tales above any other blog I read. I really enjoy it. Can you email me or reply in the comments about some website or something with how to customize the design of a blog? I'd like to make mine better, but need a resource to help me figure out how to do it.? thanks- luv ya!

oh no, I wrote tales instead of tails. Lets pretend I meant it as a pun. :-)

Aren't comments great! Only blogger writers know how truly exciting it is to see a new comment :) I too can't do much else if I have an idea for a post. So, I'll come write it all down as soon as possible so I can get back to other things! Hope you have a Merry Christmas Cam!

I love the new look! I haven't quite become friends with Photoshop like you have (and any other computer software), so one day I will have to beautify my blog. For now, I'll stick with my plain Jane.
