On a Day Like Today

On 4/17/2009, I posted Today is the Day and Unknown Mami™ was born.


A few days later, I wrote in my journal…

Journal entryI have a dream that one day strangers will be reading my blog and enjoying it.

Thank you for making my dream come true and most of all thank you for not being strangers.

The rest of the month will include more giveaways than normal because birthdays and gifts just go so well together, don’t you think? You stopping by and reading is the best gift you could ever give me. Lucky me!


Wait, before you go! If you like this post, por please share it, pin it, tweet it, call your mom and tell her about it or give it a hug. Muchos thank yous!

    You’ve just reminded me that my blogiversary is coming up the end of this month. Each year, I think “I should do something special to celebrate, like a giveaway!” Each year, I forget, and the day goes by unmentioned. Or maybe I’m just cheap. No, I’m more forgetful than I am cheap.

    I love reading your blogs, but don’t often comment  on them, so hope that is appropriate.

    You are right about us not being strangers anymore.  I didn’t realize the friendship part right away, but strangers do read our blogs and become friends.

    Awww.. Happy Blogoversary, Unknown Mami. I found you through a blogroll, from Robin over 2 years ago.  It’s good to know you.

    Hey I was wondering if you could do me a favor?  There is a group of girls in Arizona who make scrapbooks for Wish Kids.  They put together a super nice book for Joey using the photos that I took while we were in Orlando.  Crops of Luv does this for free, even shipped the book for free, which might weigh around 10 pounds! Anyway, they are getting requests from people who only speak Spanish (and only speak French) and are having problems fulfilling scrapbook requests from these individuals.  On their Facebook page, they are asking if anyone can translate English to Spanish or English to French.  I’m guessing you can translate the English to Spanish part.  I’m just wondering if you’d have the time?

    You are my blogging hero! You were my first encourager, adviser, and you gave me my first award. You were my first bloggy friend and I will always love you for that. I cannot say just how much your on-line presence has influenced and improved my real life.
    With lots of love,

    Congratulations on your Blog B-Day, Mami.  I’m so glad you started blogging and have enjoyed watching your blog grow and to learn more about you and your family.  I’ve laughed with you and cried with you over the years but mostly I’ve loved being here.  
    Thank you for blogging with us.
