It's amazing. One day, about a year and a half ago, in total misery and pain – I stared at my blank laptop screen and began typing.
I had only read one blog, ever, in my entire life. I knew nothing about blogging. I knew nothing about the world of Internet writing.
I wasn't looking for readers, I wasn't looking for a career, or power or fame. (Good thing for that, don't ya think?!)
I just knew I needed to write.
I needed a distraction from my car accident recovery. I needed a distraction from breathtaking pain.
Today is the 500th post I've written for Twenty Four At Heart. This blog has brought me so much happiness, so much joy, and so much peace. Most of all, this blog has brought thousands upon thousands of wonderful people into my life. (And one or two assholes also, but shhhhh – they've taken up enough of my time already!)
It's amazing to me how many readers I've now met "in real life." Others of you, I may never meet, but I've come to know you anyway – thanks to the comments and emails you send.
As a small thank you to my wonderful readers (the very best in the entire Internet world!), I'm hosting a giveaway today.
I have twelve Twenty Four At Heart 2010 Calendars to give away.
Here are the monthly photos, in the order they appear in the calendar:
