my anniversary

It’s true—I’ve been a blogger now for one whole year!

In a recent post I mentioned that I never really planned on being a blogger—blogging seemed like one more thing I’d have to add to my forever-expanding to-do list. But then I got lonely—writing can be so lonely and isolating—and I yearned for a sense of community, a group of other people concerned with reading, writing, and parenthood, so I started this blog.

I never dreamed how huge my community would become or the ways in which I would be nurtured by it—by all of you. So I just want to take a moment to thank you for reading and commenting and entering into a dialogue with me about writing and teaching and motherhood. Sitting down to write no longer feels like such a solitary endeavor. Thank you!!

It does make a writer's time less separate and that is what I too love about blogging. Glad to have found your blog - through another blog.

And yes, the moving never gets old. Even the fourth time around. Even now I get what I call "phantom" movement - though the last babe is over a year out.
