Happy One Year to Me!!
I'll start off by saying how incredibly thankful I am for those of you who have clicked on the FOLLOW button, apparently finding my words worthy of reading. Personally, I think I've grown from this whole blogging experience.... this was me a year ago:
Me: Um.. hello blogging world, I'm Kristin. Um, I like writing fiction... I live in Texas... I'm getting new carpet next week... I have NO clue how blogging works or how anyone is going to find my page. Come to think of it, I don't know how to find anyone else's page either...
Kristi Chestnutt: I write too! I'll follow you!
Me: OMG where did you come from?
Kimberly Franklin: I write too! I'll follow you!
Me: OMG, how did y'all find me? Can we be critique buddies and email back and forth all day every day? (yes we do that...)
Kristi and Kim: I was just thinking the same thing!!
Me: Seriously though... how did you find me, and how do I find blogs to follow??
With their help (and yours!) I've since figured out the wonders of blogging!
I really hoped to do some HUGE huge prize packet, but you've all seen my Christmas Branch, Stanley... Things are tight (at least, I'm making them tight, because I'd like to eat in January when people are done getting their Christmas pictures taken haha).
