I did this last year or maybe the year before. Or maybe I just read about it and thought it was neat… I cannot find the post where I did this, so that’s probably the case. Anyway, I cannot remember at the moment where I saw this idea.
The general idea: go through the past year and post the first sentence of your first blog post for each month. Viola! The year in review!
I’m going to make additional notes on a few of the months (noted with **), but not for every month. If you’d like more information about the first sentence from each month’s post, feel free to browse my blog archive. It’s located in the right sidebar – very easy to find for you and less work for me!
Happy New Year!!
I went to see the production of “On Golden Pond” this afternoon at the Civic Center.
