My, how the years fly by ...

It seems only yesterday that a patter of tiny keys heralded the birth of my bouncing baby blog.

Just look at her now ...

She has 117 links with other li'l lit bloggers, many of whom she's now met in Real Life.

This will be her 938th post.

According to Stat Counter, she's received 36,465 visits.
Site Meter has counted 50,315.

(Since neither were set up at the birth, I suppose these numbers are pretty meaningless.
But hey, it's coming up to my blogday. Give me a break, will you?)

To commemorate 2 years of beautiful blogginess, I'm going to do the same as I did this time last year.

So here goes. These are the first sentences of the first posts for each month of the last year.
