Blog Anniversary! Let’s celebrate with cake.

Blueberry cheesecake.

So, it’s day two of the A to Z Challenge and, coincidentally, today is apparently my one year blog anniversary. Yes, I would have eaten a slice of blueberry cheesecake tonight anyway. But tonight I’ll have it in celebration!

Year One of The Rambling Jour was pretty epic. Over the course of this year, we’ve seen:

  • Hot Doctor
  • Running amok at Antietam not once, but twice
  • My 30th birthday and a countdown of all history related shenanigans I’ve pulled
  • Top Five Brutally Hot Men of the Civil War
  • Successful baking!
  • Epically bad baking and disastrous consequences of following recipes from the 1860s as they’re written
  • Scandalous destruction of my laptop and the awesome new laptop that followed
  • Hilarious misspellings and inappropriate typos corrected…and sometimes missed
  • The Olympics and my obsession with an event a person can medal in
  • The naming of my novel
  • The completion of my novel
  • Registering for the writer’s conference and the ongoing battle of editing aforementioned novel
  • Apparently lots of posts related to food, writing, and artillery, since those are the top key words I’ve used to tag my posts.

I have to admit though, if I was to be described in three words, food, writing, and artillery would actually be pretty on point.

And, just a brief moment to pat myself on the back, but this is the first time I’ve held onto blogging for more than a couple of months. 2012/2013 is apparently a good year for writing, since I’ve not only gotten so far with my novel, but I’ve remembered to blog throughout the entire journey.

Okay, enough monologue-ing. Time to dive into Year Two of The Rambling Jour and indulge in some decadent blueberry cheesecake. Happy blog anniversary, blog! You’re pretty awesome.
