Can you believe it? TEN years ago today, I started this blog when the Six LDS Writers and a Frog blog ended after five years. I've been blogging for fifteen years! Time has flown by.
To celebrate I'm going to be having a party for the rest of the month! I have some amazing prizes by award-winning authors, gift cards, swag bags, and there will be party games and scavenger hunts, it is going to be so fun! I hope you'll join me.
For the first party game, I want to talk to you about FIRSTS.
Here is my very first blog post on the LDS WriterMom blog, May 4, 2011:
I'm so excited. And also a little nervous. I've been a part of the Six LDS Writers and a frog blog for five years and I've often thought about having my own blog as well, and here we are. It's sort of like moving away from home for the first time. Remember that? The tears at saying goodbye to mom, looking at her waving in the front yard as you drove away, then the smile as you walked into your own apartment for the first time, and the frown when you looked into the empty fridge. Did you ever wonder how many days you could live on Ramen noodles or counted out pennies at the grocery store till? (Not that I did that. Noooo.)
Anyway, this blog will be talking about things I've learned as a writer, a mom, and a few thoughts of a spiritual nature every now and then. I want to post writing tips, tell you about the new writing journey I'm on, and review some fiction that I'm reading. (Because everyone knows a good writer is also a good reader.) I hope you'll stop back often and leave a comment.
This is going to be fun.
So, in the comments, I'd like you to tell me about a "first" in your life. Your first book, first pet, first love, first date, first kiss, first day at school, first celebrity crush, any first. And anyone who comments will be entered in the FIRST drawing for a $5 Amazon gift card!
Happy Blogaversary! Thank you for being here!
