Friday marked one year since I got it in my head that I should start a blog and published the first post on Manhattan Nest. I had something more exciting planned for this post, but as Friday passed into Saturday and Saturday turned into Sunday and all of a sudden it was Monday… well, that’ll just have to wait. I’ve been busy, busy, busy.
But I figured one year in blogland warranted something, so I’m piping up to send out a big cosmic thank you to all of you sexy folks who, for whatever reason, like this site. Because I like this site. A year ago, I never expected anybody to read what I had to say on here. I had no concept of the amazing amount of support and generosity I would end up getting from my little blog, and no sense of the fun I’d have writing it. I never could have imagined the number of truly special and important people it’s single-handedly brought into my life, and certainly no prediction of how much my little slice of internet real estate would come to mean to me. What started as a bizarre pastime really has altered my life in so many ways.
So thank you, for all of it. Regular commenters, subscribers, people who remember to check back once every three months—you’re all a part of what makes this fun for me. I’m not sure I’ll ever understand what brings people here or why they’d ever choose to stay, but I’m glad you enjoy it, kind stranger.
Now that we’re past the mushy part, I thought it might be both fun and terrifying to open a little Q & A. Anything you’re DIY-ing to know about the blog, or me, or my imaginary dog? Ask away. I’ll publish the answers in a week? Sound good? Awesome. Have at it.
