One Year Old Today

Yup, today my blog becomes one. The main purpose with this blog when I first started out was to share my writing experiences with y'all and some history stuff, and whatever else that floated into my noggin' that I wanted to share. Lately I've been quiet, my writing has ceased which is mainly the reason for my silence since this is supposed to be a writer's blog. No writing, nothing to share. I've even ceased with the random song of the week since it didn't seem to be very popular. Eh, it had its run.

I've been in a funk lately, as is usually the case this time of year where my mind switches over to gardening mode and my writing sits on the back burner. Last year I was in neither gardening nor writing mode, but I did write more last summer than I had ever done before, and managed to finish the first draft by the turn of the new year. Still working on draft three slowly but surely of book one, very slowly, and haven't touched book two in a long while. Perhaps I have just fallen out of love with the story right now, and distance away from it will help spark that love of it again. I'm usually not in the mind to write during the summer, but come fall I'm back into it through winter and early spring until the warm days strike and I'm in gardening mode once again.

It could also be depression, too.

I should also update the look of my blog since it isn't winter anymore (finally), but that requires effort I'm not into right now.

So happy birthday blog, and despite the dropping of page views lately because of my lack of updates, here's to another year!

Happy Blog Birthday!
I hope you're back to writing and gardening soon!

I don't like the heat so I tend to get the most writing done in the summertime. And in January for some reason.

Happy belated birthday to your blog! :) It takes a lot of determination and ambition to be able to consistently keep something like this up, so don't feel down on yourself! Wishing you the best in your gardening and writing endeavors, and I can't wait to get a crack at your novel.

I've been browsing through your posts and I'm super excited about the Hungarian history. I'm Canadian, but my dad's side of my family is Hungarian and I have always been very interested in the heritage and culture.

Keep up the blogging and the awesomeness!

Thank you for stopping at my blog. Glad you liked what you found here. Hope you like my little story (ha, there's nothing little about it), I'm a bit nervous having someone else looking at it. :)
