The reason I started blogging.....

...is Morgen.
That's it, plain and simple.
I apologize for neglecting to mention this in my previous post.
Morgen had begun blogging, and had quickly grown to love it. He knew how I loved writing (I often wrote Lee letters that were over fifty pages... some were even over a hundred pages). He'd suggested a couple times that I start a blog, (Lee might have suggested it as well), but I was reluctant. I didn't want anyone to plagiarize my stuff, and it's depressingly easy to do that these days. I've had friends whose blog posts have been copied and stuck on someone else's blog, and claimed as someone else's work. That would infuriate me, especially if it was something I spent a lot of time on or something I was particularly proud of.
Yet, one day I took the plunge anyway. August 13, 2006.
And, one year later, I'm still glad I did.
Thank you, Morgen, for talking me into this.
(See the picture he made for me? It's got a drop of water, commemorating the fact that the original title of my blog was "One More Raindrop In A Bloggy Ocean." Now that's just the subtitle)
The blogosphere is a wonderful magical place.
If only there were cookies.

Congrats. There are cookies, somewhere in the PC but I can't find the choc chip goodies no matter how hard I look, bastages, someone must be stealing them.

I don't figure I write anything worth stealing, but I can see how you would need to worry. Your posts are always entertaining.
