Happy Annibirthversaryday, Blog

Dear Blog,

Happy Annibirthversaryday! Today you are one years old.  You’re growing up so fast – I can hardly believe we’ve been together this long.  It still feels so fresh and new. But look at you! Potty trained, walking, talking, cursing even! You’ve been nominated for awards, had your go on the Freshly Pressed site – attracted followers, of the human and not-sure-what variety.  You’re doing well, kid.

On a serious note – THANK YOU to everyone out there – I’ve met so many incredible people and made so many new friends.  This has been an exciting ride.   I don’t know what the future will bring for The Mercenary Researcher Blog  – but I know it won’t be dull. I’m just going to let it unfold as it will.

So eat cake today! It’s a party!

I have lots of mushy emotions for all of you – yes, even you!

Addendum: how cool is it that my favorite writer of ALL TIME, reads my work?????  THANK YOU SHARON !!!! 

This is the most awesome thing EVER!!! I've admired Sharon K Penman's massive tomes of awesomeness since before the turn of the century.

    One year?! It seems like you have been around for longer than that. You have accomplished so much! And you are famous because famous people follow you which means I’m famous by association. I’m just a starfucker like that.

    Happy Annibirtherversary!
