One Year Anniversary!

I am celebrating my one year anniversary as a blogger!

My official first blog (Feb 3, 2013) , was no more than 6 sentences, and introduced myself as a spanko and avid reader. It’s pretty funny, how embarrassed and shy I acted.ย  I was so afraid I would say the wrong thing, I had a few friends beta read all of my blog posts for me ๐Ÿ˜‰ย 

I have grown a bit more comfortable with my “speaking”, but I’ll be honest; every once in a while I still ask a friend to beta for me. ๐Ÿ™‚

1 yr blogiversary

Here are some of the bigger events from the past yearย :

1. I learned howย to ย blog.

Good Lord, technology is not my friend.ย A few close friends can attest to this.ย  I have even taken part in a blog hop and some Saturday Spankings hops.ย  LOL, I have come along way from “Quick, someone help me! I can’t log in to my WP account!” Does anyone remember that FB post? ๐Ÿ˜‰

2.ย  I learned how to review.

And more importantly, how to give my opinion without feeling badly. (Actually, I’m still not quite there. But I am making good progress.)

3.ย  I learned that I have a voice.

It doesn’t have to mirror anyone else’s– it is my own special voice.ย  I think my voice stems from my emotions. Usually, it is happy and light, and whimsical. (Sometimes, not so much.)ย But I am learning to project this into my writing. And it is proving to be a wonderful outlet for me.

4.ย  I learned that I need boundaries and discipline in my everyday life.

Many of you already know that I asked my husband to enter into a DD relationship with me a few years ago

5.ย  I also learned that I LIKE being spanked.ย 

This was a huge conundrum for me, finding myself on both sides of the line. So we blurred the line, and I feel better. ๐Ÿ™‚

6.ย  I started writing my first book; had it edited; revised it; then promptly put it aside.

I don’t know what led me to do this. Fear? Self sabotage? Or just not feeling ready to release it?

7.ย  I just finished my second story.

This one flew from my fingertips onto the pages! It was so exciting, and romantic, and fantastical! It seemed that I found one of my niches. (Fantasy and paranormal). It was so enjoyable to create these characters, and watch them evolve on the paper! I love these characters, and finally get it.ย  The thought of sharing these characters with the world is so much greater than my fears, or my (possible?) need for self sabotage.ย  I am about to submit this story to the publisher, and am shaking with excitement. (And a little bit of fear of the unknown. ๐Ÿ™‚ ) This will be my first published story. And it is pretty exciting for me!ย  So I am letting it go! Wish me luck!

8. Finally, and most importantly, I made friends.

Some are the types that I can laugh and joke with on FB. And some, I can go to when I need a shoulder, or a supportive hug.ย  These women know who they are. I am so blessed to have all of these different friends in my life.

*****

So there it is in a nut shell. This is where I usually insert a funny Austin Powersย  line. ๐Ÿ™‚ But I won’t, this time.

Thanks for being there with me, this past year!

I am looking forward to all the cool stuff we will do and learn together, this next year!

Blessings!
