Blog Birthday! Happy Two Years!

It’s William Shakespeare’s birthday! The bard at 449, is read, performed and analyzed around the world, on stage and screen, in parks and parking lots, indoors and outdoors.

And it’s my blog’s 2nd birthday! Well maybe not yet as famous, I’m happy where the blog journey has taken me.  After my first blog b-day, I created an anthology of writers, mostly bloggers who I’d met via the blog world.  I’ve met a few blog friends in “real” life and have extensive email exchanges with many others.

What’s next for year 3?

I hope to get back to posting at least twice a week. April has been a busy month: lots of trips to Ohio for our daughter’s college academic and athletic events, DSC_1069DSCN1168DSCN1175 Grandparents Day,  CIMG2528 polishing the first draft of my play that will be read by professional actors next week, and writing a study guide for Random House.

As I wrote in my first birthday post, all I want is more readers! I’d love to grow the conversations.  So no gift cards, candy, or flowers. Please pass this message along: Check out www.cyclingrandma.wordpress.com!
