Has It Really Been A Year?!

I received a notice from WordPress this afternoon –


I can’t believe I’ve been writing here for a year already…and you know how I like to celebrate milestones. 🙂  As writers we need to enjoy the crossing of thresholds, the overcoming of obstacles, both big and small, and the one year anniversary of my blog is definitely a milestone.  I feel I should honor it and all of you by doing something special, but I’m not sure what would be appropriate.

First off, I suppose a big



is in order!  When I chose to start this blog, I was looking to create a platform for Rachael the writer – it’s grown into much more than that.

I love this space!  The encouragement I receive here makes me want to be more, to do more.  I’ve grown as a writer.  I’ve made friends here.  Found support here.  This blog makes me write when I don’t feel like writing anything at all.

I can share my passions aside from writing.  I can geek out.  I can reflect.

And through this space I continue to learn, be inspired, and find new interests.  So thank you to all of you for your continued hard work and passion!

So as I reflect on the passing of this last year, I turn a hopeful eye to the future and the changes that are coming.  Thank you for joining me on this journey and I look forward to continuing to share it with all of you!

Best wishes to you, my friends!

xx, Rach

  1. That’s a great milestone! So few of us get past the first month of a New Year resolution, so it’s quite an accomplishment. I hope you continue many more years. Are you a better writer for doing this? Just curious.


    • Thank you! This is the best diary keeping I’ve ever done. 😉 “They” always say that everything gets better with practice, and I think that writing here, nearly everyday, is some of the best practice I’ve had. I recently mentioned how I think my voice has been honed, so definitely, I think this has made my writing better.
