2nd Blogniversary and more

My very first entry was in December 1, 2004 and its about the word "BLOG".

The entry that kick off this blog with newfound blogger friends was this entry in March 2005. Prior to this, only 2 of my friends read my blog, they are Junnie and Suze. And then Vangie, Tin, Melissa, Denden, Toni, Vanessa, Joey [Techguy] somehow finds their way into my blog... and my circle of bloggers just keep on growing as you can see in this '1st anniversary' entry... and my bloggings hours have grown as well.

In December 1, it will be this blog's 2nd blogniversary! Yey!

THANK YOU to all of you who frequently and consistently visited my blog! And for being my cyberspace friends.

Thanks! So far so good!

Hi Joy,

Happy Blog Anniversary! Okay, where exactly is home? I may have missed it. Will read the previous entries.

fennymun said...

Hi Jo, Happy blogging anniversary! Hope to read your blogs soon after most of the things are settled down. (Such a big move needs time and super 'management' skills to put things in order. I'm sure you can do it efficiently.)

Leah said...

Cogratulations and goodluck. Enjoy the Brr!!! weather in Calgary. You're not missing much here in toronto right now.

JO said...

Hi Tin,
It's Calgary, Alberta. Thanks!

Hi Fenny,
Thanks! It ain't easy, but am excited to just settle in and it will only happen when i clear out all my boxes.

Hi Leah,
Thanks! The weather is actually not bad since I arrived.

Hi Jo,

Happy 2nd Blogniversary! I'm relatively a new reader of your blog but I really enjoy reading your posts. Hope to get to know more about you.

Thanks for taking time to answer the A-Z meme. I enjoyed learning small but significant details about you.

I haven't visited for a while because I had no internet access for a week. But everything's back to normal so I'm back.

Take care!

JO said...

Hi Rach,
Thanks! Pampahaba din yun meme mo sa post kong ito.
