Happy Birthday to my blog! Today is the 1 year anniversary of Semper Gumby... the Return of Sunshine!  Thanks for joining me on this amazing journey!

When I started this blog, I was broke, I had just gotten laid off (thanks, recession) from my "first real job" and was absolutely devastated.  I asked my mentor, Emily P., who is an incredible leader and a wonderful human being about her blog (which is FAB) and how she constructs it.  She told me that I would find my voice and that I could make my blog whatever I wanted. It hasn't been exactly the path I expected for myself but I'm so happy with how it has gone - I truly cherish the relationships I have built through my blog!

For the next year, I am setting these goals:
  1. Attend a blog conference or just a gathering of wonderful blog friends.
  2. Learn how to post pictures that look nice and not just straight from my camera.
  3. Get a blog face lift.
  4. Have Dave blog sometime... share feelings, that sort of thing!
  5. Continue to meet more blog friends.  This has been one of the most rewarding things about blogging.
  6. Learn to do cool things with my blog that I keep saying "ooh, I want to have that!"
  7. Read more. Comment more.
  8. Create an award!
  9. Put up and start my 101 for 1001 that I have been working on for EVER.
  10. Write something inspired and creative.
Thanks loves, for your ongoing love and support of Semper Gumby... the Return of Sunshine!
