I’m a Two Year Old

We interrupt the current blog series Summer School with this newsflash:

Let’s celebrate with some accordion music!

This week marks two years of blogging for me! It all started with this Facebook status:

I feel a bit constrained by the size of my status update. If I had a blog, would you read it, or would I merely be amusing myself?

Turns out this was not an either-or proposition. You would read it, and I could amuse myself, too! I still love blogging, and I hope that you still love reading. If you do enjoy Nicole White Speaks, can you give me the anniversary present of delurking to give a comment– just a Hi Nicole! would make my day.

For my gift to you, here are some highlights from this year:

This post got a LOT of attention. If you are tired of politics, please read it: The Bad Divorce

This post set a record for making people (okay, me and Ben’s mama) cry sweet, happy tears: Closer than a Brother

This one contains one of my all time favorite stories: What a Friend

This series made people (okay, me) laugh until they cried: Status: Mother

And this one didn’t get a lot of attention, but is a favorite of mine because it gets to something very core in me: The Monsters We Cannot See

As for the numbers (this is more for my records than yours, feel free to not write this down), I have posted 39 times this year, up from 26 last year. Nicole White Speaks was visited about twice as much as it was last year, with my busiest day being March 22, 2012 when I posted The Bad Divorce, which has been read over 600 times and I am STILL hearing about it (a good thing).

Again, thanks for reading. It is nice to know that I am not just talking to the wind. And leave a comment saying hi!
