I'm One Year Old Today!

Gone to Plaid was born one year ago. It weighed 0 pounds, 0 ounces, was birthed by a crazy blonde girl who had an aversion to stupid people.

It's grown so much this last year. From frantically trying to get blog traffic from Blog Mad to visiting 100 Thursday 13s in a day, Gone to Plaid now leads a more settled, if not highly trafficked existance. Gone to Plaid's personality has made it easy to make friends, and the blogroll is happy to be so full, yet the blog is always looking for new friends, feline, canine, human, and yes, even the occasional "other."

I remember when one comment a day was enough to make Gone to Plaid a happy place, and now comments come in several times a day. It's like hearing "You've Got Mail" and it gives Gone to Plaid a warm fuzzy.

Its style is constantly changing, but it's heart remains the same. Happy blogiversary Gone to Plaid!

Congrats, Carmen. I wish I could get that kinda traffic, but I do tend to march to the beat of a kazoo player, if ya know what I mean.

Wow, when I fisrt started coming to you (around May), you already had so many readers, I thought you must have been doing it forever. Strange to learn Gone to Plaid was only an infant then...

Well done for sticking it out for a whole year and here's to many more! Happy, happy blogiversary!

Oh my gosh! Of all the days not to visit. I didn't visit on your blogiversary. I'm sorry I missed it. I'm sure it will give me a grand excuse to wear my tiara over on Meezer Monday!

Here's hoping the house buying and selling continues to go smoothly.

..........and I missed the party? D A M

Well, a belated happy anniversary. May it grow stronger the next year, and the next.

Afterall, if Gone to Plaid HADN'T have opened, I would not have had the chance to meet the spiffy, spunky, blond!!!

WTG!!! You rock.

Happy Blogiversary, GTP. Nice to know I was here from (almost) the beginning. Mine is coming up in April.

I never thought I would have as much fun with this as I have. Thanks for reading and adding me to the "Places to Go".
