The photos were rather busted. One of my objectives derailed the first week in. But it was my first post. And damn it, I was proud.
Going in, I don't think I truly understood how much work went into running a blog. That a few times a week, I would be up until at least 2am, editing photos or trying to plow through a writer's block before cashing in on a few hours of sleep prior to the workday. Or that it was possible to go through a body pillow-sized bag of all-purpose flour in a single week.
Or that I would ever grow a pair and enter a cupcake contest.
Or that I would find myself standing in the presence of an internet Superwoman.
Or, most importantly, that I would have the support of so many incredibly talented, creative and simply badass people whose blogs, comments and feedback are a source of inspiration for me on the regular.
So thank you. Thanks for sticking around and making this tiny, insignificant area of the internet feel like a home to me. Grammatical errors, yellowed pics, overly long site address and all.
To show my sincere gratitude, I've teamed up with the people over at Bosch to give away a cardboard box. After all, paper is the traditional gift given for a 1st anniversary.
Oh, and the box will have one of these inside.
Details on Friday.
And again, thanks. I big, bloody, muscle-y heart you guys. Ew but true.Tweet
