Goose bumps

At first glance, it looks like today's post is about geese.

It's not.

What today's post is really about?

Don't run away, I'll tell you.

On this very day...

Exactly a year ago...

I started this blog.

To celebrate, I'll answer questions.
You leave them for me in the comment section,
and I'll work on answering them this week.

Oh, and by the way, this post also celebrates Camera Critters,
a fun weekend meme where you take photos of animals and post them online.

Join us.

Happy Bloggiversary!

My question:

What is your best tip for increasing exposure in the blogging community?


How do you think you have changed through blogging mentally, emotionally and spiritually?

david mcmahon said...

Happy blog anniversary Rhea. I'm so glad you blog.

Kori said...

Happy Blog-a-versary!

Oh gee questions. I am never good at questions. But for you Rhea I will give it a go.

Favorite Color?
Favorite Vacation Spot?
TN February 28th? :-P
What kind of camera do you use to take all your awesome pics?
Do you have any other hobbies other than blogging and picture taking?
And you know I love you and just adore and think you are a RoCkStAr!

Happy Blogversary, you were just 2 weeks ahead of me!

Happy Blogday! And may more to come!

DrowseyMonkey-Photos said...

WooHoo! Happy Blogoversary! :)

The ducks in the first photo are so unique, never seen anything like that before.

Unknown said...

Love those geese!!

Happy, Happy Blog Anniversary !!!!

Questions ... hmmmmmm ..

Do you have problems thinking up questions?

Does it bug you when kids come up and tap or poke you to get your attention ?

Would it bug you if you had 27 kids doing that ? (Not all at once, but at various times during the day!)

Has one of your kids ever come up to you and tugged on your skirt to get your attention and because it had loose elastic in the waistband, it partially fell down?

Have you ever labelled 14 reading books with the wrong reading level because you were distracted by 5 kids wanting you to show them how to make a paper bat?

Would you be happy if your hubby fired up the speech regognition thingy on your computer and the damn thing couldn't understand your accent?

Is it raining in your neck of the woods ?

Okay, that's all I can think of before drinking my coffee !!

CrystalChick said...

Happy Blog Anniversary!!!!

I remember your blog right from the very beginning! I think for awhile back then you were using the brown template... and lookie lookie at you NOW. Wow! You've done alot in the last year but what I think I initially liked so much was your love of LOST!

Your blog has become very interactive and you post alot of different topics. Great place to stop by for a visit. :)

Hmm.... questions???
In case I missed it on a previous post, what job did you just get?
Will you be still be able to blog as much?
Happy weekend. :)

Mo said...

Happy Blogiversary to ya!

All Things BD said...

This Is My Blog - fishing guy said...

Mammatalk said...

Barb said...

Happy Blogversary!!!! You almost had me fooled with the geese. :)

Justine said...

Okay Rhea, here is my question, and I mean it in all seriousness.

Whose is your favorite blog to read? The one that when you see they've put up a new post, you just get the warm fuzzies?

Justine :o )

Happy Blogoversary Rhea!

I love the shots of the African Geese. We used to have some around the farm. They are so cool. And of course the Canada Goose, one of my favs.

Dianne said...

Happy 1 Year!!

Erika Jean said...

What ever happened to the "guess what this picture is" things? that is why I put u in my reader ;-)

Carletta said...

Happy Blog Anniversary!

What do you like least about blogging?

Unusual duck heads. :)

Swirl Girl said...

Happy Bloggiversary!!

Did you get any special gifts for this 1 year anniversary?

Do you ever have trouble coming up with questions to ask everyone?

Do you ever answer your own questions?

Where does wind start?

Rose said...

Happy blogiversary! Even if they post isn't about geese, you have some great shots!

Ash said...

Happy, Happy Blogiversary!!

Question: How long did it take you, and how many tries, before you were finally published in Quality Women's Fiction Magazine. I've just started the long road of getting some work published, and frankly, I'm scared to death.

Rejection totally sucks, yet I know it's inevitable.

Grammy said...

I love all your photos.
Happy BlogAversary!

Sally-Ann said...

You've had a blogiversary,
We want to sing to you today!

AppleDebbie said...

Congratulations on your one year anniversary! (Love the geese pictures!)

Manz said...

And Happy Bloggiversary!

If I'm still blogging after a year with regular readers and commentors that you seem to have, I think I too would have "goose bumps" :)

Tailoring your post for camera critter into a anniversary theme was ingenious. Your photos aren't half bad either - they're GREAT.

Unknown said...

Your photos here are beautiful! Happy blog-anniversary!

Manz said...

Noticed that CrystalChick said that you have a love of LOST!

Downloaded and watched the first 2 shows of the new season... and was left rubbing my hands together! Great stuff!! Hope to see some posts from you with regards to Lost.

debi9kids said...

Congrats on your Blogiversary!
I am popping over from SITS (I saw your comment there)

hmm, a question for someone I just met......

Why did you start blogging and what is your favorite/least favorite thing about it?

Indy said...

Wow! Only a year. I thought you have been doing this longer. You have TONS of readers. Congrats!

Mariah said...

Can I come hug you? That's not my question I just want to come hug you!!

My question: Has blogging for a year changed you?


If your kids wanted you to quit blogging would you? Or are you too far gone like me?

b13 said...

Congrats on the year of blogging and wonderful shots!

Coachdad said... year! Congrats! I was feeling pretty cool about doing this for three weeks today. I am now a follower and I will be able to see you through the second year!

Anonymous said...

All of these picture of geese were very interesting. I feel like I've stumbled upon a party, although I wasn't invited--well, cheers!

Compliments of the M.IV, and Clayrn Darrow.

Jennifer-Eighty MPH Mom said...

Well congrats to you!! That's very exciting! Love the geese - they are funny.

I have a question for you:
What do you enjoy most about blogging? And how on earth did you get the third column on your blog? LOL
