Two things I need to say: PHEW! and THANK YOU!
My first link party is history. And now to go back in time for a moment...
A day or two after I announced my intentions of hosting a link party, I began blog hopping (aka: visiting other blogs) out there in the blogiverse, and I came to the shocking realization that 1) there are MILLIONS of blogs out there (which are INCREDIBLE) and 2) that THOUSANDS of them host link parties every week.
Call me crazy and naive, but I was pretty sure I was going to be in the minority hosting a link party. Not the case. FAR from it.
(Yes, I feel like a goober.)
And then I realized I have no business hosting a link party at this (pathetic) stage of my blog life.
But alas, it was too late to turn back, so I went ahead with it, even though I kinda felt like throwing up because I was so nervous ... but, I was pleasantly surprised that I had a whopping 14 blogs link up!
You probably think I'm being sarcastic there ... but honestly, that's about ... um ... 13 more than I was expecting. (I knew I'd have ONE because I was gonna make Mick post something, whether she wanted to or not ... and she did a darn fine job, I might add! And she made me cry ... but that's beside the point.)
So ... I want to throw a huge THANK YOU out to you 14 awesome bloggy friends who linked up for my very first Inspire Me Monday.
Although it's been fun, I'm thinking Inspire Me Monday might need to wait a while to make a reappearance. I'm not totally sure what I'm going to do ... but please stick with me, and I promise you, it will be back - eventually. I'm on a mission to build this blog, and this just gives me one more good reason to do it! :-)
If any of you "real" bloggers out there (aka: those of you who have more than 30 followers) have tips for me, I'd love to hear 'em!
Thank you all for stopping by my piece of blogland when you do ... strange as it sounds, it's a good feeling to know you like reading about me and my not-so-thrilling life. :-) All 30 of you! (YAY!)
