It's today! Our first post here at the cafe was one year ago, with C.S. doing the honors. We were inspired by Gauss over at Gauss Pontificates, who remains our patron canine and mentor.
We had no idea how addictive blogging would be.
We never dreamed how often we would say to each other, "You should blog that."
We thought we were the only people who were pretty darn obsessive about books, bookstores and reading the prizewinners.
We weren't aware that challenge reading even existed.
We never expected that most of our real life friends--those we dared to tell about our little venture--would be so incredibly uninterested in knowing what we've been up to. (Kudos to those of you who relate to us in both worlds!)
We didn't know that there were so many smart, creative, funny, and just plain nice people out there in the blogging world, or that having bloggy friends could be so rewarding.
It's been a 365-day blast. Thanks for making us so welcome!
