It’s my Blogiversary.

I’ve been blogging for three years now.  Thank you to all of those who care what I have to say. I’m not sure what’s wrong with you, but I appreciate all your support.

Pizza_Eating_Contest_trophyAnd with that I’d like to mention some stand out readers and contributors, by handing out some Dungeon Awards (no chain gang follow up posts required).

 

Thank you to My most loyal readers and commenters – mom and dad! I know you’ve read every single post that I ever put up!

To my most loyal Blur (the serialized novel- if you’re not reading it you’re missing out!) commenter. Slpmartin.   So glad to be sharing this journey with you!

To my most wordy (prolific in her words) commenter that always shows that she not only read the article or poem but that she really understands what I’m trying to say. Thank you for getting it:

For being an inspiration in the blogging world, and definitely inspiring many of the features in my site, which were ideas that I directly stole without retribution or bitterness from her:

Rarasaur.

 

To the most prolific Dungeon Prompt Contributor MarthaOstout, who has completed almost every prompt (she’s just catching up with the last couple). Many she has done twice.

And in mass, I’d like to thank everyone who has ever done a Dungeon Prompt – you keep me blogging when I want to give it up.

“…When I hit the age that embodies spiritual gestation, something happened.  I remembered I was more than a mother.  Motherhood is no less my solemn charge today than it has been the last six years.  But the woman God had created to reflect Him in her way even before she birthed her child had gone missing.  I remembered that writing is how I really breathe.”

  2. Happy Birthday! Happy Anniversary! Happy Blirthday! Happy Blogiversary!

    Sometimes I wonder how I found some of my favorite blogs, and when I look at your list, I conclude that either I found many here, or they led me to you. Thanks for all that you do here to stimulate pondering.

    This is a precious post. I tingle when I review the lists, in memory of what I’ve experienced here, and in anticipation of returning to this webpage for more.

  5. Happy Anniversary, Sreejit! Still remember my first hop skip over your blog with an Acrostic poem which Martha0Stout is the Queen! I`ll repeat myself, but you’ve saved me oodles of $$$ from therapy sessions. Martha is so loyal, that when you took time off, I started a Thursday prompt to aleviate that “dry” speall 😉 So glad you have your loyal parents reading, I may never have met your mom:) I have chips and salsa! and may just make some guacamole too:)

  6. Happy Blogiversary, Sreejit!! The “wordy” one will resist the urge to respond in novel-esque fashion. 😉 I will simply say, crazy attracts crazy… and so, here we all are, seeking a little bit of sanity in each other, while basking in the symmetry of our complex natures. Be honored in knowing that some of us even deem you as the leader of this wayward armada. :-p

    I also enjoyed your love, and the effort it took to put this post together.
