One Year in J-land

Happy September the first everyone ,first  day of the month ,did you say Rabbits ?.....Today is the first aniversary of my journal ,yes I have been posting entrys for a whole year ,I cant believe it ! I had been commenting prior to posting for the first time ,so I had made a few friends on line ,and Jeannette (Jottings)had been encouraging me for ages ,to start my own journal as had Sandra (Labdancer)Maurice and my sister Jean  were saying that I should ,so here I am  one year on !

Thanks to Jeannette telling every one to come along and read my journal on that first entry I had forty alerts ,and I remember her saying to me in her e-mail ,that should keep you busy ,I lost the second entry, I did ! and Jeannette again to the rescue ,discovered I had opened a second journal but the second one I had used small a S on the title Serendipity ,yes I was a challenge to dear Jeannette in the beginning ,but she kept me on track with endless patience ,and I am proud to call her my inspiration and Mentor ....Thankyou so much Jeannette .

At the risk of being a bore,as I'm sure you all know by now I was selected in May to promote silver surfers on the AOL welcome page ,and am even now on the list of top ten bloggers on the blogs page .But much more important is the friendships I have formed ,both here and in that place, a stones throw away ,just over the pond . I value the friendship of each and every one of you .So with my love ,have a lovely weekend everyone ......

Congratulations Jan "first"  year of many I hope ~ and hasn't it gone quickly ~ Jeannette (Jottings) helped so many of us when we first started our journals ~ (Thanks Jeannette) you are never a bore Jan and we were all so happy when you were chosen to promote "Silver Surfers" and what a wonderful job you made of it ~ and you are in your rightful place being in the "Top Ten" at the blogs page ~ and the friendships formed through journals are very precious ~ Ally

Happy 1 Year Anniversary, Jan!  I'm so glad to have met both you and Jeannette.  I started my journal in October last year.  Shelly, Roxymama, was my mentor and tutored me with the patience of a total saint.  You've come a very long way.  xx  Chris
