Be a good neighbor — Re-visited one year later.
Today is the one year anniversary of my first regular post on The Tromp Queen blog. Click on “Be a good neighbor” here or above to read that post.
(The VERY first one was called “Apparently I can be talked into starting a blog“ but I don’t really count that one since it was mostly just an announcement of my presence and intentions).
It is also the two-year anniversary of my dad’s death.
I wrote a post about my dad last May as I contemplated Father’s Day without Dad. The post is “Missing Dad.”
A year later — I’ve written 140 blog posts as The Tromp Queen. I have 200 followers here. I’ve made new friends and have enjoyed this whole blogosphere more than I ever imagined. I recently started a recipe blog, called The Heat is ON! My family endured a year cram packed with changes. New job, new city, new home, new schools, new neighbors — new practically everything.
Some things never change. I still miss Dad, and I always will. The events of that day and the week after feel simultaneously quite recent and a long time ago.
Thank YOU for reading, commenting, following and most of all for caring. I hope you’ll continue to hang around for rest of the journey.
It means more to me than you know.
