Wow! It almost passed me by, but today is my 2nd blogiversary!
Yup, I started blogging on June 4, 2007, but it took me about a year to really decide what I wanted my blog to be. Diary of an Eccentric started as a knitting blog, with some side discussions on books and writing. I wanted a place to write something -- anything -- so that I'd be writing on a regular basis. Back then Serena and Dawn were my only readers. (Love you guys!)
I didn't do so good with the regular posting at first, since I'm not a speedy knitter, but switching to mostly book reviews was the best thing this lifetime bookworm has ever done. Today, I'm happy to say the blog is pretty much an all-books-all-the-time zone, but when I dust off my needles and get knitting again, I'll be sure to post about my projects.
I just want to thank all of my readers and commenters. I'd still be blogging about books if no one stopped by, but you all bring a smile to my face and brighten my day each time you visit.
Here are some firsts from the past 2 years:
My very first post
My very first book review (thank goodness I've improved since then!)
My very first knitting post
My very first author interview
My very first book tour
The Girl's very first book review
A poem by The Girl
Thanks again for stopping by my humble abode, and I hope you come back again soon. Now let's party! I've got the books...who's bringing the drinks??? :P
