Me ... me ... on me blog

Happy New Year everyone.

This is a timely meme thanks to Amy Nelson-Mile - who liked it so much she posted it both here and here.

So - here are the first sentences of the first post on my blog from each month of the old year:

My very first post

Testing ... I'm in a blog panic.

What kind of parent ...

Can you imagine your eleven year old doing something so bad you would throw them out of the house?

Schools fools

So my son has got into the secondary school of his choice.

Fundamental design fault - 'Off' switch not included.

Dear Creator,
I am writing to point out a major design fault in your model Homo Sapiens Version I in the hope that you will take my comments into account before launching Version II.

Choices. Would you choose to have them?

I've been thinking quite a bit about this stuff.


Tuesday, June 06, 2006

I'm back - and to prove it - I'm here ...

Hi all! Thanks for keeping an eye on the blog for me and for keeping me alive in my absence.

Two new reviews blast their way into the blogosphere

Maxine and Crimeficreader have both written really thoughtful reviews of Nirvana Bites on their blogs.

Funny thing, time ...

Never enough of it.

Deep in the ether, something stirred ...

Now what's going on???

A coven for all of us

I was a long way from home.

Welcome to my world!

I seem to be on multi-tasking megadrive at the moment!

On we go to the next 12 months ... looking forward to seeing you here - or there ...

Interesting way to bury stuff and divert attention methinks.

Debi, what a year!
Your open, honest blog posts have made us all laugh, cry, think and feel. All this and still writing cutting edge fiction and caring for your family.
I would also like to think that I have found a lifelong friend and would just like to say - thanks mate, you are one in a million!

Debi said...

You don't have to 'think' it, Minxy. You KNOW it. I'm in your life now and I ain't going away - not even if you beg or offer chocolate bribes!

Lee said...

Lehane, that strikes me as an unfair comment. Anyone who wishes to can read the full posts.

Debi, Happy New Year to you. Let us know what's happening on the job front.

Debi said...

Thanks, Lee!

As for jobs - I'm working on it ... several irons in various fires. I'll probably end up with 6 concurrent jobs - or none ...

Isn't it great to see that body of interesting, relevant and often passionate posts building up and you don't even notice?

Well done Debi, you have shared your unique energy with us all and I'm very grateful - thanks

May it continue in 2007

Caroline said...

What a year! And what a record of your year!
I've only been blogging for 4 months and I keep thinking that I'll run out of things to blog about. You're a star. You manage interesting and sincere posts each time.
I look forward to reading your posts this year.

Lehane, I think your avatar is particularly appropriate for a half-wit. Also, sorry, but I've often noticed that when "methinks" appears in a comment, that comment is usually vacuous, with no indication of any thought whatever, but only a vain attempt at "class." Prithee avoid it.

Good to see you back and posting again. And job hunting (I know what that's like).
Here's to a wonderful 2007! (Raising coffee mug...)
All the best, my dear friend!

Debi said...

Thank you all, my wonderful blog friends, for restoring my faith in the blogosphere as a place where the forces of light will always prevail!

Unknown said...

And there's a round up of your blogging year showing us just what goes into making a writer like you!

Marie said...

Happy New Year Debi!

I am really pleased that I 'met' you this year. As Caroline has already said, you are a 'star'. You have been so kind in offering your help and support to me when I've been feeling down (and I've posted many down posts on my blog I'm afraid). Hope we get to meet one day soon.

Thank you and I wish you and your family all the best for 2007.

Marie xx

Great post, Debi. All my best for a great 2007, publishers queueing up, and my thanks for all your friendship and positive comments on my blog.
Now, must get on and do that "bloggers' year" thing myself --- ha!
