Today, I celebrate the first anniversary of my Blogville residency. This post will be a retrospective look at my life, and all that has transpired, since I started blogging here.

I had no idea what a blog was before I clicked that link at the top of the page. I had never heard the word, and was curious as to what it meant. So I clicked and came in...and almost instantly was hooked!

Blogville had no where near as many residents as it does today. It was a quiet little town, where most of the writers knew each other. I read the blogs for a few days, enthralled by the camaraderie of the people here. I’ve always felt like a loner, with not too many friends, and felt some kind of kinship toward these a-f-f blog pioneers. Something was drawing me, pulling me in.

At that time in my life, I was feeling a bit at sea. My Brit had written to me and it seemed, at the time, that our relationship was finished. We had three and a half years together, and I had been hoping to have many, many more. My relationship with hubby was bordering on the banal, with no hope for improvement in the future. I started writing, with no real idea of where my writing would lead. My blog began on April 18, 2005, like a ship at sea with no port or destination in sight...adrift and searching.

I have weathered a lot this past year. My Brit came back to me. I had some wild and crazy times in the group chat room....some really steamy sessions I might add, with some dear people who no longer walk these halls. avgjoe19602. Sportyfun56. Jerosd. Mnfun952. Cumtounge44. In June, a fellow blogger traveled here to meet me, and hubby found out. I stopped blogging for two months. We went to marriage counseling, then when hubby decided that he didn’t “need” it, I continued on my own.

I have made some progress into the journey of “finding me”. I realized that I have spent most of my life devoting myself to others. Always doing what they want. What is good for them. Never thinking about me, or what I want. In September, I came back to my beloved Blogville. I decided that I needed the catharsis of writing, and the poor attempt that I made on another site was not what I needed. I needed all of you. I missed your friendship, and wanted to come back.

Since last fall, I have been on the verge of a breakthrough. I have been working with my therapist to find the real “me”, not the “me” who is the result of what everyone else has created. I’m finding that I actually LIKE me!

I’m a good person with a big heart. I am so full of love, searching for someone to share that love with.

I like thinking of ME first, instead of worrying about what someone else might think or feel about it.

I have realized that I don’t need to have a lot of friends. The few close friends I have are enough.

In closing, I want to thank each and every one of you for taking time out of your busy lives to come and visit my home here in Blogville. To those of you who I consider friends, and you know who you are, thank you from the bottom of my heart for standing by me and giving me support this past year. To those of you who stop by and comment, I do appreciate your kind words and tender moments. And to those of you who come by and read the nonsense that I write without commenting, I do appreciate your visits also. You make this blogging thing worthwhile!

Here’s an index to some of my favorite posts, a variety that will help get a look at who Candy was when she started blogging, and who she has morphed into:

New job is going good, and I've been in the process of trying to get my car out here and keep up with money demands and making ends meet. Today....is 2 months ago Jefe and I "met"...and 1 month ago today...the 18th I came out here to be with him. So far so good.

I think about ya a lot and hopefully soon stuff will calm down...and we can catch up. Don't write me off...ok... just life has me in a whirl wind at the moment. Love ya.. Slide.

Congratulations and how wonderful. I found this place the same way. So glad I stopped in tonight when I got home and didn't miss this chance to wish you a Happy Anniversary. People who always go around trying to please others ARE so full of love and kindness but usually lose themselves. I am so happy you are finding yours!!! Much hugs and kisses to you, Candy! Many MO! {=}
