Talking To My Blog

Please note this was a phone conversation. You can only hear my side of the conversation. Sorry.

MMK: Hi. Hope you are good.

MMK: Yes, I’m fine. So, a birthday is coming tomorrow.

MMK: No, of course I didn’t forget.

MMK: I didn’t get you anything.

MMK: Because you don’t need anything.

MMK: Yes, you’re right – you do need stuff, and I give it to you.

MMK: What do you mean what do you get?

MMK: I give you my time, thoughts, personal life…

MMK: Why are you silent?

MMK: Listen blog. I made you. I feed you my words. I’ve introduced you to many people.

MMK: Yes, you have introduced me to many people too. I am extremely grateful for that. In addition, the sense of community that I have gotten through you has been amazing. There are so many talented, interesting, and caring people out there who also made blogs.

MMK: Okay, okay I know we’re talking about you. I just don’t know what to get you. I mean you don’t like Lego like BR, and you don’t like Thomas trains, like SY. So, I’m at a loss.

MMK: I’m trying. Ahh, I have an idea. It’s a surprise.

MMK: All right, all right I’ll tell you. Gosh, you are like my children. Actually, I’m going to get you a makeover. What do you think?

MMK: No, I do like you the way you are. Wow, now I’m starting to think you’re like my wife. Anyway, you’re going to like it. Trust me.


Thanks so much to all of you who have read, commented, and shared with me through my first year of blogging. I am very grateful for the people I’ve met, and the stories they have shared. You have helped me to grow and that’s awesome.

  1. Happy birthday memyselfandkids! The only present I can offer you is to continue reading you, which I will because you’re great! I also look forward to the website.

  2. Hi,
    Congratulations on your anniversary! I don’t know what your makeover is going to look like but I am confident that it is going to be great, because it will be a picture of you, and how you see the world.
    I am also looking forward to your website. You have a lot of work ahead of you, but I believe you know that already. So, I wish you creative ideas and lots of patience.
    All the best.

  3. Hi memyselfandkids!
    I just set up my blog and am searching for something fun to follow. A teacher is always a good choice. Looks like many others have also discovered your talents and enthusiasm.

  4. Dear memyselfandkids,

    Let me know how your birthday was and if you got some great gifts. I asked for diamonds and a week in the Bahamas and all I got was 500 lousy words and some photographs. I love the way you look now (don’t ever change) but if you do change I am sure I will love the new way you look. So glad we have gotten to know each other.

    Your friend,


    p.s. Please eat an extra slice of birthday cake for me, I do so love cake.

    • Dear Shoesonthewrongfeet,
      You are too kind. Stop it! Well, go on if you must. I appreciate it.The makeover was not my first choice. I wanted season tickets to one of my favorite sports teams. Anyway, at least you got photos. Lucky!
      It’s been nice getting to know you. I am glad we are getting old together,
      P.S. Unga bunga – love cake, yum yum.

  5. Your blog shares a birthday with Harrison Ford and Cameron Crowe, if my Twitter feed is accurate… Congratulations!

    I am very interested in your makeover and the shift to a website. You are blazing a trail that I might want to follow.
