Happy birthday, Boricua in Texas

My blog is a year old as of last Saturday. I wrote my very first blog post on November 3, 2006. Now, one year and 434 posts later, I look back and I can honestly say I had no idea what I was getting myself into, and I am so glad I did. I started my blog to force myself to write, and in a year I have started to get more comfortable with my writing and make some progress, although I have a long, long way to go. I have also found a great little group of bloggers whose pages I read every day, a place where I fit in.

Because I have a limited amount of time, and I am spending so much of it blogging or reading blogs, I have neglected some of the baby boards I was a part of through my second pregnancy and the birth of Isabel. I am not too happy about that, but I am able to keep in touch with some of them who keep blogs like me.

Will I still be here next year, writing about my second blog anniversary? I very much hope so. I have learned not to make categorical statements, because you never know where life takes you, but I very much intend to continue my blog. It has been an enriching first year.


  1. Congratulations, Ingrid! Let your writing take it's course, whether it's in the form of blog or another format. We all have to evolve.

  2. Happy blogaversary. :) how cool is that? I just made 6 months here. :) Seems like I have always been doing it...but also seems that time has flown by.

  3. Oh! Happy Birthday Blog.

    Isn't it amazing to see how far you have come in a year. In print.

    I hope you stick around another year.

    I know how taxing maintaining a blog can be. Keeping up with your favorites, trying to pump out new posts...falling in love with a blogging 'community' where you feel support, love, passion, pride, laughter, tears...taking and needing breaks... its all worth it.

    I am almost "two years old" in the blogosphere, and I wouldn't trade a day, a post, a reader, or a comment....

    Happy Anniversary Ingrid. Congrats, Indeed!

  4. Happy First Blog Birthday, Ingrid, may you write happily for many, many more! I am delighted to have met you here. Loved your comment about not making categorical statements - yup, I've learned that too. But I'd like to think that five years from now we will be enjoying photos and stories of your girls becoming all grown up! :-)

  7. Happy Belated Blog Birthday. I am glad you kept your blog because I was able to meet you. Keep up the good work. Hope your writing blossoms.
