Today is a special day

Hi!  Guess what today is!  I’ll give you one hint:

Today is my one-year blogiversary!  I posted two posts on December 28, 2008.  The first one read:

Books.
Crafts.
My life.

Get ready.

Now, I’ve kind of (completely) slacked off on the craft portion of Regular Rumination, but I’m not gonna sweat it.  I love Regular Rumination and everything it has become.  I love everyone who reads my blog, from all of you wonderful wonderful bloggers to my roommates to my family to my friends.  In all seriousness, I can’t imagine my life without book blogging.  It has made reading a more enriching experience and I have read more books than ever before this year.  I’ve made more conscious decisions about my reading and I will continue to do that.  Reading has always been a passion, but it’s grown into something more this year.  I don’t even know if I have a word for what it is.

I’d like to thank all of the people who commented on my blog in the first couple weeks: Heather, Terri, Phantom Inkheart (Lotte), Nymeth, Chris, Charley, Rebecca, Lezlie, Daphne, Eva, Care, Stephanie, Kim, Lesley.  I’ve met so many more people along the way and you guys really convinced me to stick around.  Thanks for everything, kids.  Don’t worry, I’m not going anywhere.
