Can you believe it? I sure can’t! Today marks one year exactly since I posted my first blog entry on the John Keatley Blog. I think I had 2 subscribers back then (thanks Mom and Dad) but I have been amazed and encouraged by the steady show of support during this last year. If you are somewhat new here, don’t feel obligated to drop what you are doing and read my first post. It is less than enthralling, and reads much like the screenplay for Gigli. That being said, I guess this is as good a time as any to let you know that John Waters has actually been ghost writing my blog for about 9 months now. Or since whenever it started becoming interesting. Maybe that is why I felt inclined to leave him in the picture.
I was hoping to take a celebratory 1st anniversary portrait of myself to mark this big milestone, but John Waters kept poking his head into the frame. As you can tell, I am less than amused. It was funny the first time, but seriously!
This last year has really been wonderful, and I am very thankful I start blogging when I did. I fought the blog for a while, but since I decided to take the plunge I have come to enjoy writing and it is something I look forward to each week. I should sign off before I become too sentimental, but thank you everyone for your support and for taking the time to read. I am looking forward to the adventures ahead in the next year.
