A big family, a reading addiction, and the occasional celebrity scandal are the ingredients of life that create one woman's opinion on just about everything.

Do I get cake?

I can hardly believe it. As of today I've had this home away from home for two years. What I find interesting and ironic is that this is post 365. You know what that means, right? I have enough posts to read one a day for a year. I can't believe I've written that many posts even over a two year period. That equates to one every other day. Who knew?

When I started this I was hoping I'd be able to post something at least once a week. I wondered if I'd lose interest. I wondered if this would end up being a passing phase or if it might become a passion. Mostly I wondered what I would be writing about. I had no idea back then about all the possibilities and subjects I'd be sharing and discussing out here in the cyber world. I didn't know how many wonderful and dear people I'd meet online and in person. I had no idea how many new authors and books I would discover. It's been wonderful, fun and fulfilling. It continues to be a growing and learning experience and an incredible place to play and ponder.

I am most grateful that I can indulge myself out here in the blogosphere and still have a real life. Which, in a nutshell, is the beauty of online connections isn't it? You can work on your own clock and around your own schedule. Isn't that the coolest?

So, all in all I'm in a celebratory mood. Isn't cake a prerequisite for a celebration? Don't most birthday parties include cake? My blog is TWO and I think it calls for some cake. A big yummy piece of chocolate cake. Of course, if I'm to have any damn cake I'll have to bake it myself. Which if you've visited NOBODY ASKED ME... recently you know that I'm doing my level best to keep the oven O-F-F because it is so darn hot outside. So the whole cake thing? Not looking so good. Bummer. I could really use a piece of chocolate cake.

Hey, hey! Happy 2nd blog-versary! You should get cake, but you're right - it's too darn hot. Hit the bakery instead.

Isn't amazing how small your goal was when you created this blog and how large it's grown? Hope you have many more years of blogging left in you.

Two years - Wow! It's amazing how fast the time goes isn't it?
And for me the joy of blogging is meeting so many incredible people. It came as a surprise how close I've become to so many people I've never 'met' in person and how important they are to me - and you of course are included in this.
Happy blogiversary.

Congratulations on being 2! I've just stumbled on to your blog and think it's great, you definately deserve cake. I've only just started blogging and I'm having similar thoughts to you when you first started, I think this blogging lark could become quite addictive!

Happy Bloganiversary Rosie!! Wow, two years! that is so great :D and the best, you've exceeded your expectations :D! Congrats :D

You know, I think that the only way at the moment I would stop blogging is if everyone from our little community just up and left, leaving me alone :(

Thanks everyone. It's just the beginning of a long relationship with books, blogging and you people. Now, as for the cake... Sadly I'm talking myself out of it. I'm going swimming tonight and eating cake sort of defeats the purpose.

Surely there's a bakery close by! OH! Or you could get one of those Betty Crocker microwave desserts. They're not so bad. The chocolate lava cake is pretty darned good!

Happy Blogaversary!

Happy 2nd blogiversary! Go out to dinner someplace special and order cake for dessert. Chocolate, of course. My favorite: Claim Jumper's Chocolate Motherlode Cake. Yum. Oh, damn, now I'm hungry.

Happy Blogiversary! If I could cook I'd send you some cake your way, though I doubt you'd want anything I cooked. LOL. :-P

You all are hilarious. Cindy, did you eat cake for me? No cake, but I did buy an espresso brownie at Starbies and GG fixed me an ice cream cone tonight. Does that count? :)

Ames, thanks so much for saying that. It's just the sweetest thing. I'm extremely happy and glad I've gotten to know you too.
