Happy Birthday, Blog!

"And I feel like I'm naked in front of the crowd
'cause these words are my diary screaming out loud,
and I know that you'll use them however you want to"
Today marks one year since I created this little blog. I really can't believe how much success, confidence as a writer, and excitement it has brought me. When I started writing it one year ago, I thought that maybe my family and possibly a few friends would ocassionally read it, you know, to be nice and to have an answer when I would say "So, did you read my blog today?!?!?"
Honestly, The Cat'z Meow was developed more as an outlet for me, to share my thoughts and help me stop bottling everything up inside. I never dreamed that I would have hundreds of readers, many who I have never even met, but am so blessed to have in my life.
I really can't express how it feels to have someone tell me how much my poetry touched them, or how they can completely relate with the words I write. To hear someone tell me that my thoughts and my writing inspires them or moves them in any sort of way is just so gratifying. I just can't beleive that people even take the time to read the words that I write in my spare time, words that come to me in the middle of the night when I have to grab my iphone and type as fast as I can before the thoughts slip my mind.
So thank you, to every single one of you reading this, you have no idea how happy you make me. I love every single one of you.
