Today marks my 500th essay on WordPress. If you told me a year and a half ago I’d end up penning that many I would have laughed for sure.
Seems I’ve fooled even myself.
What I can honestly say about this experience is that it’s made me a much better writer showing up on the page every day.
I would also like to acknowledge the benefits of treating it like a job as opposed to a pastime.
I’d like to thank everyone who reads and supports athingirl.com and please know how much it humbles me to have such a smart and esteemed audience.
To quote someone I love very much…
my graces to you all…Susannah
The Truth About Amy was my very first post.
I’m one of those quirky New Yorkers who has no friends. I’ve had them from time to time but at the moment I get death threats hurled through my window for not returning an article of clothing, but then along came Amy.
Amy is beautiful, bright, funny and extremely generous. Who knew? She encouraged me to start blogging, no easy feat since the mere thought sent me to The King Cole Bar in a gypsy cab. I’m so private that I make Greta Garbo look like Lady Ga Ga so this is a helluva big deal for me.
One day Amy cheerfully suggested, “rather than turning the gas on Susannah, why not blog instead?” Hmm, I thought, lowering the oven to 350.
She did all the work, encouraged me when the site rejected me and my AmEx card for reasons still unknown. I was convinced it was a guy I must have blown off…but what I realized after she had to be hospitalized for cyber exhaustion, I do have a friend. So thanks Amy
