Today marks 2 years!

That's right. It's been two years since the debut of WIXY's Gone Bananas. At first I had no idea what to blog about, but I had friends encouraging me from the start. One told me not to worry if nobody read my words, but I never had to worry about that. First I had friends from the message boards, then family, then personal friends.

Soon I reached outside of my home area and started leaving comments on other blogs. I dropped email when I could. These folks came back to visit me. I started getting hits from all over the world, and now I am read in three continents on a regular basis.

Thanks to all my friends. Because of you, I found my comfort zone. You've given me encouragement when needed, and comfort, also when needed.

One blog became three all because of encouragement of readers. I want to thank everybody for cheering me on these past two years.

Cliff Note: I wrote a special poem marking the occasion at my Whattville blog

It's funny how you start blogging ... not knowing what to expect, then find that the "people out there" are really the most important part. I consider blog freinds a commodity just like the people I see face to face every day.
Crazy thing this blogging? Not really. It would be hard to imagine NOT blogging now.

I am about the same "age" as you - a bit over 2 years. Over 1200 posts on my own blogs and on community blogs. Whew!

Congratulations ... and I will see you next year for year number 3

Cheers :-)

Eric:Your blog is quite a bit busier than mine. I don't know how you keep up. But you are right, blog friends are important.

And to all who read and respond, you are the ones who make these blogs worth writing.
