In Which I Had An Anniversary

So July 1st was my 6 month blogging anniversary. Crazy how time flies, right?

I'm pleased that I was able to stick with it this far. It's certainly one of my more successful New Year's Resolutions.

In celebration you'll have noticed that I changed my blog template. I can't promise that this one will stay, but I do think I'm done with the other one. Not that I didn't like it. I loved it quite a bit, but so did, apparently, quite a few other bloggers and I felt like a change. I'm also planning on changing the title of the blog at some point in the future. I just need to do some research about that.

So far now we have this new template. I'll give it a week or so to see how I acclimate to it.

Also, I apologize for not having a Friday Fun Words post. I actually completely forgot about writing a post. I think it was due to the day job being super busy and then we went out to dinner on Thursday for a friend's B-day and it just never occurred to me that I hadn't written one.
My bad. If it makes you feel any better, Yvie pulled my hair really hard when we were wrestling.


Finally, Hole Ridden is officially out on submission. I made one more big change and ditched the scene Gary suggested. Coincidentally it didn't actually cut down the word count at all, so it's still 2600 words, but I think it reads much more smoothly. And by cutting that scene and working in the stuff I needed elsewhere I think I also successfully got rid of the "walking on the cliche line" issue. So cross your fingers for it.

Anyway, here's a fun comic and LOLCat for you to enjoy!

Cognratulations on your blogoversary. I didn't realize it was only 6 months old, you're such a prolific blogger, it feels like you've been doing this for years.

It's a good thing you mentioned you didn't write a post for Friday because I was looking for it all weekend. I thought I was losing my mind and couldn't find it.

Congratulations on Hole Ridden. Go go go!!!

I like the new template, red is one of my favorite colors.

It looks nice around here. I understand the desire to have something a little more unique-ish. Wow, and Happy Blogiversary. I can’t believe you only been blogging 6 months! You’ve taken to it so naturally. I’m still feeling my oats.

Falen (Sarah) said...

Holly - i think i had some blog hiccups in the beginning. and yeah, there were at least 2 other bloggers that i knew about who had the same template. sadface

Shelley Sly said...

Happy Blogiversary! I like the new layout, and I LOVE the kitty pic!

Okie said...

Congrats on the milestone. Way to go. :)

SonshineMusic i.e. Rebecca T. said...

Wow! Only 6 months?! It's hard to believe! Congratulations!

And I LOVE the new template. Though I feel like my eyes are out of focus, and then I'm like, no just the picture is. But then my head says, no it's my eyes. Then I remember that it's 12:30 and the lack of sleep MIGHT be affecting my brain. So I like it!

Where did you get it? I've been considering a little changeup on mine *gasps in horror*

Falen (Sarah) said...

Shelley and Okie - thanks!

Sonshine - i just found it messsing around on the new blogger template designer - there are tons of backgrounds you can pick
