Welcome to the party. Have a Tequila Lime cupcake. Throw some confetti around. We're celebrating because this blog is six years old. Yes, six! Who knew I could have that much to say. I didn't go public with my sketches until a few months later. I was new to the whole blogging thing, and it took me a while to figure out the scanning, uploading, security issues, commenting on other people's blogs, and general net safety and courtesy. The virtual world was a very different world than the one I was used to. Going public with my sketches was a little intimidating, too. What if what I found was not a welcoming and charming community of like-minded individuals as I had imagined, but instead a harsh wall of indifference? What if no once came to the party? But they did (you did) and the community I found was delightful. I've learned a lot and seen a lot. The hardest part of the blogging was not putting the sketches forward, but finding something interesting to say. Sometimes there was a story to be told, or a lesson learned, but sometimes there was nothing to say.
So thank you for being there (and here). Enjoy the cupcake.
