                           HAPPY 1st BIRTHDAY BLOG!!!
Today marks the first birthday of the This Is Me blog. While I have missed a few days along the way due to travel today also marks my 365th blog entry so somewhere along the way I filled in the blanks and not only kept this website filled with information but did so “daily”.
I’m proud of this accomplishment. One year is a long time in many respects and a lot can happen in 365 days. A lot has certainly happened to me in my previous twelve months and having this shared journal of those experiences, thoughts and images along the way is a wonderful, comprehensive way to look back on a single chapter of my existence.
Like many things in life, the reality of having a blog I committed to posting something on daily was a bigger undertaking than expected. Some weeks I was chomping at the bit to share information and others left me completely out of inspiration, but I pushed through and found wonderful little things to share highlighting small, bright spots in the big life I am trying to lead - just as I’ve always said on this blog in the upper right corner. And I had no idea how long it took to write a quality post worth reading! I’ve learned the true art is in the editing.
Naturally it brings me great joy and satisfaction when people comment, reblog posts or follow my entire blog. But I initially started this as a way to fill time in my sometimes dull days with something bright, positive and optimistic for myself. Now it is also a great way to share part of my life with anyone who wants to see it. This isn’t a deep, dark, personal blog - I’m only showing the happy, shiny stuff (along with fun zombie stuff) - but it is one side of my existence. We too often focus on the negative and don’t highlight the positive. I want this blog to be a big bright highlighter of the positive and spread joy to others. Much of life is terrific and I’m proud to have 365 entries which celebrate that. Thank YOU for coming along with me!
Here’s to the next year and beyond!!!

In honor of my 32rd birthday I’ve asked friends and family to support  two of my goals for the coming year - staying fit and helping others.  Thanks to the Safari Park Half Marathon I can do both at once!
Help me give these special tigers a 32 Roar Salute by raising $500 with your help. Soon the endangered Sumatran tigers  will soon be enjoying a fabulous new home, I’ll be in better shape  than ever, and you’ll get a tax write-off.
CLICK HERE to donate.
*As of the posting of this blog entry I have raised $357 which places me as the #7 fundraiser. Help me climb the list and reach the top!
