There are celebratory grooves going on here at Roses in the Rubble!
Today Virginia commemorates TEN YEARS of blogging. Bring out the chocolate cake, light those candles, it’s time to celebrate! Can’t believe it’s been 10 years since Virginia tentatively launched her first blog post entitled “Inspiration” out into the blogosphere.
Here are bits from that first effort:
to provide the embers of creativity – to educate – to reflect – to ACT
What inspires us?
Art, beauty, faith, the lives of those who have gone before us
inspire us to believe, to hope, to act.”
“Finding inspiration in Rubble, books, movies, music & more…”
Since then there have been many posts (@ 1,000!) about many things, the kind of things that interest Virginia (and she hopes others, too!) Inspirational quotes (lots & lots of those), photographs, personal reflections, travel, books, movies, flowers, several post-a-day Advent & Lent gigs and more (teatime anyone? humor? tree groupies of the world unite?)
It took awhile to figure out things like “tagging” but the most fun part of blogging these ten years has been meeting other blogging buddies around the world. You have made – and continue to make – the blogosphere a fun place to hang out.
HaPpY BIRTHDAY ROSES IN THE RUBBLE!
A big THANK YOU to faithful readers (family, friends, blogging buddies inclusive) who inspire and encourage me in so MANY WAYS.
grace, peace & celebratory grooves
