A bloggy look back at 2007

Near the end of last year I saw several people post a list of the first line of the first post from each month through the past year. Several days ago I saw Bet do the same thing, and that reminded me of it. It’s a fun exercise, so here are my first posts for each month of 2007. While looking through them I also decided to highlight certain favorite posts from each month as well.

  1. You are the second person I’ve seen do this, and I think it’s a great idea. I think the re-caps help readers remember and pull together a fuller picture of the blogger.

  2. Thanks for sharing your past year with us.
    I will have to come back and take more time to look through it.
    Happy New Year!! Many blessings to you in the New Year!!!
