Today is my blogiversary. I can hardly believe it, but it was exactly one year ago today that I first started publishing all the tales from the Nucking Futs Family, 283 of them in all. I’ve been pretty much an open book for the past twelve months, laying it all out there for the cyber world to read. It has been an amazing journey thus far, one that I almost didn’t even take.
I’ve always had a passion for writing, but kids and all of life’s craziness have generally gotten in my way of forming a coherent thought to spew from my brain. I resisted for quite a while, but my husband finally persuaded me to take the plunge and start a blog in January of 2009. When it first began, I felt like an idiot putting something out there on the internet that surely nobody in their right mind would ever want to read. I was certain that nobody gave two shits that my son likes to make his peeper dance or that my daughter calls my bras “boob covers” or that my thong flossed my lady bits at the gym. But little by little, my followers grew over time, and people surprisingly WANTED to hear about all the jack-asinine things that tend to always happen to me. And now that I’m a year into this thing, I can happily say that I have built some really unique and special relationships with many of my readers. It’s been both fun and incredibly therapeutic to share my life with all of you.
The blogosphere is FULL of incredibly talented writers who make me want to step up my game and improve my own site. So, over the next year, I hope to do even bigger and better things with my blog. I’m planning to switch over to my own URL, and a Nucking Futs Mama t-shirt is already in the works. Who knows — maybe you’ll get a wild hair up your ass and decide to show the world that you’re a little nucking futty by wearing one of these bad boys in the carpool line at school or even to pick up a lil sum’n sum’n for yourself at the adult toy store. Whatever the case, I hope I can continue to keep you laughing, continue to keep you thinking and continue to keep you coming back for more. I promise to dish it all out if you promise to eat it all up. 🙂
