ZonePerfect Blog Forward Challenge #1 - Dear, Me: A Poignant Letter Written to Myself

***Disclosure:  I am participating in the ZonePerfect Blog Forward Program.

So. What got you? It was that poignant letter part, huh? Mmm, hmmm...just as I suspected.  If you're an avid reader of my blog, you know that I'm anything but poignant, sarcastic and a bit dorky, but yeah, I'm not exactly the Sidney Poitier of blogging. But if that was the line that hooked you, well yay me!

But enough about how I lured you all in my web, I mean, err, blog...as much as I'd love to be able to say that I'm quite the athlete, I'm far from it. More like, I'm probably the only person on the face of this earth to get an F in P.E., yeah, seriously, who does that? Apparently, I do. I have the high school transcripts to prove it. Now, having said all that, while I'm not going to win any Athlete of the Year awards I'm VERY competitive.  So much so, that I've disowned my kids once or twice during a cutthroat game of UNO.  I DON'T mess around!!

Time to Celebrate - Blogiversary


I hate that cliche, "Time Flies" but it most certainly appear to happen that way doesn't it?  It doesn't seem like an entire year has come and gone, but apparently "Word of Mouth...Lend Me Your Ear" has officially turned "1". When I first started my blog, it was really out of sheer and abundant amounts of boredom.  I needed an outlet, I needed some creativity in my life.  Instead I got a fulfilling and rewarding experience.  I have each and every reader to thank, from those who just passed by during a google search, to those who I truly engaged and have kept as loyal readers.

I don't know where the future is going to take my blog.  I've been contemplating branching out and taking the plunge to buy a site with my name on it.  I have so many ideas, I want to revamp the blog, I want to start a new blog, something different.  I love Word of Mouth, it's what I do, I love talking about products that I enjoy, that I'm passionate about and that perhaps by reading just ONE of my reviews I've helped someone make a decision about a purchase!

Among a sea of thousands of blogs, I'm happy to be chosen as one to read, follow and enjoy.

Thank you for making this entire blogging year, the best experience! I'd like to also extend a thank you to all the brands, programs and sites that have trusted in me with their products and services.  If it weren't for you there'd be no blog!
