Happy Friendversary – Almost

Detail from the British Library’s manuscript Burney 201  f. 90  Some of you have been reading this blog since I started it December 9, 2015. I am so pleased you are still with me. It’s an anniversary of sorts. A friendversary. It’s been an incredible journey for me. Seeing my numbers rise is inspiring. And the numbers keep going up. I started it as a hobby and a way to stay connected with people in the SCA and other scribes. I‘ve tried to give you meaty purposeful tips, tricks, and information about book arts and the SCA. I couldn’t have done it without you. A blog isn’t a blog without you the readers.  Especially this one because it isn’t my career. So as we celebrate a friendversary I want to say thank you for your support over the years. You’ve helped me make a dream come true. I hope what I’ve shared here has helped make your dreams realities, too.So here’s to our future together. With a new calendar year almost upon us, too. I hope you’re able to realize even more of your life’s dreams this year. Wishing you a Happy Friendversary. May we share many more.Related Prior Post:70 Years And Still CountingKris Kinder Absence–Family First My One Day Pageviews Shot Up Over 1000

Scary. The good news for my generation in the USA is life expectancy rose to 78.8 years in 2012, a new high. And life […]
