Happy Anniversary to.....ME!


It has been officially a year since I have been designing blogs. It's actually been more than a year since I started doing them here and there, but it's been 1 year since it has been a "business" for me. A year...whew....it's gone by fast!

I can't say enough how much I LOVE doing this. I get to be at home with my girls, which is the most important thing to me. Sure, my days and nights are kind of screwed up, I have to nap during the day to make up for lost sleep, and the housework isn't all getting done. BUT, I LOVE IT!

The income I am making has been such a blessing to our family. The friendships I have made over the computer have been wonderful. This blog world is such an outlet for me, and I am so happy that I can design these blogs for women who want to have their outlet, too.

I just counted, and since I "officially" began designing, I have now done 380 blogs....380!!

I thank each and every one of you who have helped to make Once Upon A Blog what it is today! A couple of "special" thank you's....
1. Mel, who introduced blogging to me...THANK YOU!!!
2. Dena, who gave me the motivation (and clients) to start 'er up...THANK YOU!!!

In honor of my anniversary, let's have a "coming out party" of sorts. Are you a blog reader of mine? I'd LOVE to know...really, I'd LOVE LOVE LOVE to know! :)

Please leave me a comment here, and then I can come and check out your bloggie too!

I'm a reader, though I seldom comment. I still hope to have you help me with my blog. I talked to you about a long time ago, but then it sort of fell by the wayside. Anyway, I love your blog and congrats on your business. You are very talented!
