"A Year Ago Tonight"

"A Year Ago Tonight" I was not a blogger.  I had been thinking about it for awhile, but hadn't done anything concrete.  I didn't know very much about blogging, didn't know how to set one up, or follow anyone, or whether anyone would be interested in anything I wrote. 

"A Year Ago Tonight" I didn't spend all that much time on the computer.  I didn't really get the concept of making friends with someone I'd never met.  I didn't even think that I had the type of personality that would make and KEEP the commitment to write.

"A Year Ago Tonight" I didn't have a clue on what I could write about.  I'm really not all that interesting a person.  I had no clue what names I could use for my family to protect our privacy.  I had not the faintest idea about what my family's reaction might be to my writing about them in front of God and everybody!

"A Year Ago Tonight" I read a few random blogs.  I read a few blogs of people that I actually knew.  I thought some of the blogs I read were funny.  Some were beautiful.  Some others were sad.  Still others were awful or scary!   The variety and sheer numbers of bloggers amazed me.

"A Year Ago Tonight"  I made up my mind to give it a try.  I had no idea where this was heading, but I decided that I could try a few postings and if I didn't like it or wasn't any good at it, I could quit at anytime.  Nobody need ever know if it turned out not to be my cup of tea!

"A Year Ago Tonight" I figure out how to set up a basic design for my very own blog. "A Year Ago Tonight" I hit upon a name and concept that felt just right:

Mellodee musings....


 "A Year Ago Tonight" I wrote my very first posting for my blog,  "It's Not Where You Start"!    Here's a link if you want to go back to the beginning to see how this all came about: 
"A Year Ago Tonight" I didn't know a thing about blogging.  Tonight, one full year, 1457 visits, and 167 postings later, I am still here and still writing and still learning more about blogging.  A whole Year!  Wow! But the best thing about blogging has been making new friends and they all seem to like the way I write.  Go figure! I love getting and reading all your delightful comments. I just love the feedback!  I am honored to be a part of the blogging  community and I thank each and every one of you who have visited once or a hundred times. 

Happy Anniversary to me!  And Happy Reading to you.  Stop by again anytime!!  I'm pretty sure I'll be around for a long while!

Thanks and Hugs to you all!



  1. Happy Anniversary to you! Blogging has really surprised me, too! I had no idea the friendships that could be made or the community that I would feel.

  2. Hi! I new to following your blog. Look forward to getting to know you. Happy Anniversary!! Now I need to go check to see when I started blogging!!

  3. Blogging is a bit foreboding in the beginning. You feel like you're just writing into the air - I mean who could possibly care. Then you meet people! You make new friends. And, even though I don't blog nearly as often as I used to (Facebook is largely to blame), I still do periodically and I love it. Keep writing! And reading!

  4. That is fantastic! Happy blogiversary!


Thanks so much for leaving a comment. It's really nice knowing what you think!! Besides, comments keep me from feeling like I'm here all by myself!! :)
