That’s right…a year ago today a little corner of the internet called The Mind of the Last Atlanta Native came into being after a little coercing from my buddy Alba, one half of the sports blog, The Sporty Girlz. One year, 57 posts, and 429 comments later here we sit.
When I started this thing I had one thing on my mind: World Domination. No, seriously. I knew I loved to write and I wanted this place not only to be an outlet for my rambling and sometimes incoherent trains of thought but also as a means to become a better writer and to let other people see my work other than family and the few friends that I let in on my talent. I’ve met lots of cool people that also share the need to scribe, I’ve had good reviews and bad, I’ve been able to share some thoughts via this page that would have otherwise been nothing more than a passing thought as I played Call of Duty on my PlayStation. For this first year of blog life, I’d like to say thanks to all of you that have taken the time to come by and take this madness in. I am highly appreciative for your comments, for clicking the like button, for sharing this spot with friends and family. Nothing in the world makes me smile bigger than when I get an email or a message from one of you saying that you laughed or that you shared something and they thought it was really good. Those kinda things kinda validate the reason I decided to start this little thing in the first place.
So, again, thanks. The second year of my goal of World Domination via the written word starts today. Keep coming by, keep sharing, keep reading; I’m not going to lie to you, it makes thisAtlantanative feel good when you do…especially if you’re a female reader and you do so in a sundress. **drool**
Love all y’all, that’s my word.
~thanks for reading 🙂
Join the party at:
Happy blogoversary! (Was that corny enough?)
Renee…That, my dear, was sufficiently corny…and I appreciate it! 🙂
I would also like you to know that I wear sundresses pretty much every day that the temperature goes above 70, and I live in Florida.
Renee…with that admission you have no idea how far up my friend scale you just climbed….no, I’m serious.
I’m a loyal reader, if not a consistent commenter but I wanted to let you know that I love your writing style and observations about the ghetto, the mundane, and the overlooked in our society. Please keep on doing what you do.
Al…thank you, sir, for reading. I appreciate you coming by and giving me a few minutes of your time! 🙂
Congratulations! Keep up the great work.
Thank you, Alba…as you’re 90% responsible for this existing in the first place I guess I owe you big time!
Congratulations on the year anniversary!! takes a lot of dedication to keep a spot poppin!! Keep it moving!!
