It's been 1 year!

Wow! It's been one year since I started my blog, well, okay one year and one day. I can distinctly remember a time when I was anti-blog. I refused to blog and apart from my sister's short-lived Polar Penny blog I never read them. I just didn't see the point. When I started blogging last year, I was driven to it by the shere number of other writers in tNBW and Absolute Water Cooler that had blogs. Suddenly, blogging seemed like a good idea. An easy way to get some web exposure for myself and promote my writing.

When I started the blog, I wasn't sure exactly what I was going for. And even now I think my blogs are pretty much me rambling about writing and how it relates to my life. Sometimes when I read others' blogs I realize how inadequate my own is. I wish I had the time and patience and inspiration to write long blogs about how to improve one's ability to write, but since I'm still learning I don't really see myself as qualified to dish out writing tips. I also don't have time to do in-depth book reviews that detail how writers and readers can learn from an amazing (or crappy) book.

but I'm okay with that. My blog is what it is - a growing document, chronicling my journey to becoming a published author. One day, I'll be able to post advice on finding an agent, on signing a book deal, on marketing a book. One day, this blog will be about my journey to becoming a NY Times best selling author.

    Keep it up Angie. I enjoy reading your blogs.

    A distant cousin, Dilys Cadwalader, was the first woman to win the crown (prose) at the National Eisteddfod in 1953. She had to battle the male dominated establishment. She had an amazing life and one day I will write it down. The available biographies, in Welsh, only tell half the story.

    Keep blogging!!

  2. Congrats Ang!!! Happy Blogiversary!

  3. Thanks Uncle Robert! I was actually on your website again today looking at the Cadwalader family tree and I started remembering all these stories Mum and Francis told me about all of you growing up in Criccieth. Makes me wish I could go visit again. One day I'll make it back there.

  4. Happy Blog Anniversary! [And boy does that cake look pretty!]
