One Year Anniversary

"Here I am with another blog. I'm not sure if it's an outlet into my soul or another vain attempt to show everyone my fabulously warped little world."-Jennifer Fabulous, Feb. 12, 2009

Today is my blog's one year anniversary.

It's so strange to think how fast time has gone. Sometimes it seems just like yesterday, sometimes it feels like ten years ago. So much has happened and yet so little has changed.

When I wrote my first blog post, I never dreamed that a year later not only would I still have my blog, but I would have more than 100 followers. I think that's kind of cool. It has become my creative outlet, my journal, and my portal for making friends. A place for me to vent, a place for me to cry, and a place for me to laugh.

Here are some of my favorite posts from the past year (is this narcissistic? Eh, I don't care):

-That time I wanted to be Greta Garbo.
-Introducing the world to the other Jenny Benny.
-My Bollywood obsession
-My church's Pastor McDreamy
-After facing a shameful lie, I found myself the mother of two newborn rabbits.
-I confess a serious addiction.
-The day I had Angelina Jolie lips.
-My Betsey Johnson shopping spree!
-Three words: Sour Cream Lady.

Since I don't have enough money for a fancy giveaway, I decided to give you something else instead. I made you a video of myself. I figure its as personal as I can get over the internet. This is my first video I have made for the internet, so I'm sorry its not very good. Haha.




Thank you for being one of the main reasons I have smiled over the past year.

And I hope you all have a fabulous weekend! xoxo

Jen,

You so deserved all your followers and the love you have received in your first year as a blogger.

I started following you at the end of last summer. Although I have not been with you since the beginning, I feel like we have established a special blogging bond. I look forward to keeping the connection.

You are fabulus in theed. It is always interesting to finally see the face and match the voice of the writer we always read, yet do not know or hear.

Much love from VA. Keep taking care of yourself, you look fantastic.

My dear Jennifer!

Firstly, I am SO happy that you started blogging. You are one of the nicest people I've met in the blogging world and I'm so glad I stumbled upon your blog! I remember the first time I visited, you had posted about your Betsey Johnson shopping spree and I thought hey! Any girl who loves Betsey Johnson is a girl after my own heart! :)
Plus, you were so gorgeous and such a hilarious writer that I just had to keep checking back.

Secondly, that video was sooo cute! I loved hearing your voice. And I think you're a great speaker! We, your blog readers, demand more videos on a more regular basis! Haha :P

Happy happy bloggiversary <3

Imogen said...

Congratulations on your first year of blogging. I think that my first year is coming up this week so I should check. I love this video you made and I'm so pleased you did it because it is a chance to show more of who you are. Honestly you are as beautiful and sweet as I thought you would be and as you come across on your blog. I feel like your a good friend. You deserve all the good things that come to you through the blog and I have really benefited from it and by you sharing some of yourself with us. I hope everything is ok for you right now. Also, I love your accent.

Wow! Congratulations on the one year anniversary, it's really awesome to see that you've committed to it this whole time. And though I'm relatively new to your blog, I thoroughly enjoyed your highlights (I hope to never run into a Sour Cream Lady, but do want to run into a Patrick Dempsey pastor).

And thank you so much for your nice comment! I'm glad we agree on nails and Beatles, two important things. :)

Vivi said...

Happy blog-birthday and happy valentine's day!

Thank you so much for commenting on my blog, and for your sweet words, especially coming from you, a writer! I think my writing is quite bad, even worst in English, because I'm Spanish (my mum is English, but at home we speak in Spanish and as I finished school a while ago, my English is getting worse:( ).

I posted a comment on Barry's blog, because it really touched me. I think it is just crap the way everything's going right now. The way the executives-business men are firing people because of the financial crisis, and they still earn the same or more money in their salaries. It makes me sick. You know, they use the "financial crisis" as an excuse for firing people... but they do not really know what is it to be into that crisis completely.

We, thank God, eat everyday, sleep in our bed every night, we have a lovely family&friends that can help... and there is people who doesn't have those friendly faces for them. Who can't eat everyday, and worse, who have kids who can't eat everyday. Africa has been in a financial crisis forever. And now, that us, have the problems... it is terrible.

So, I ask you, as a professional newswriter, to try to change the world through your words. It is amazing the power of a newspaper. Doesn't matter if it is online or printed. Please, words can make people change their minds.

I don't know if you understand what i just wrote. I know my english is just rubbish, and i'm so sorry!

I love the video, I think you look gorgeous, and I LOVE your hair!

Love,

xxx

Vivi said...

Oh my God, that was a huge comment! I'm so sorry :(

Love,
