One Year Ago Today....the start of The Preppy Islander

Writing never goes out of style. Century after century: ink onto paper to... computer screen. The above painting by Hermann Fenner-Behmer.

One year ago today, I put up onto this blog my very first post! It has been such a wonderful late night kind of musing-and-writing-about pleasurable pursuit that I hope to continue on with this for many years to come. Thank YOU dear readers for following along with this lifestyle journeying into all-things Lowcountry Southern Preppy and I am so very thankful for my now 30+ loyal official followers as well as for the folks who drop by from time to time...

Your comments are always warmly welcomed and appreciated. I am also quite enjoying getting to know your own blogs as well with those of you who have links into your blog sites.

Blog writing n' artistry has really grown into its own over the past couple of years. I am continually inspired by so many who have taken this into a true post-modern, 21st century art form. I hope to expand mine into a fresher format sometime on down the line. As for now, this is still such a joy to do in between my graduate degree pursuits, professional writing, day job, caregiving, dual-household running and the short story collection which I really need to finish-up final editing and get published before another decade rolls on by...

Some nights I come to this blog-writin' kind of tired and yet, by the time I've clicked onto the ole', "publish post" button, I usually feel a lot more energized even after the long days and nights that have become part n' parcel of this particular life chapter I'm currently living within.

So here's onto yet another year of The Preppy Islander and again, thank you all and sincerely all the best to y'all from this ole' preppy gal writing late at night out on this island where all I can hear tonight is the tapping of my computer's keyboard keys, a bit of ocean breeze and the crickets chirping just beyond my opened window.
