Can you believe it’s August already? Christmas is going to be here before we know it (I know, ugh). Where has this year gone? The months have just zoomed by.

And I have been a really lousy blogger the past month or so, sorry about that. I really did have somewhat of an excuse for at least the first half of July.

As many know, I very nearly blinded myself (not by choice), having gotten down to the last pair of contact lens I had on hand, with no current prescription (and no backup eyeglasses) – a pair of contacts that should have been thrown away literally years ago. (Don’t EVER do the same. I promise you that you’ll likely be sorry, in constant pain, and miserable. Not worth it.)

The rest of July was just super busy. Anyway…

I really wanted to post this no later than yesterday and then didn’t get around to it, but I didn’t want to let another day go by without mentioning what was somewhat of a proud and happy anniversary for me:

367daysedit3

I took that screenshot a couple of weeks ago. You probably can’t see what is says very well, but this is what it says:

Lynn logged in 367 days in a row…

I really meant to take a screenshot on Day 365, naturally … but (naturally) I forgot. I was determined for the past year to log in for the next 365 days, however, if it killed me. Nothing short of a natural disaster or fatal accident was gonna stop me on that quest.

I actually had come back to the traffic exchange community a couple of weeks before that – roundabout July 3rd or 6th or somewhere around there – before I joined ClickTrackProfit (finally), so my “first year back in the trenches” after being away so long had already come and gone now almost a month ago.

And CTP, well… of course, it’s a little bittersweet for me, having come so late to the party. ClickTrackProfit launched maybe a month, maybe even mere weeks, after the last day or so I was at TE Live before I got so tangled up in what was, at the time, my offline personal life and all the catastrophe and near-destruction that ensued, and it took me the next two and a half years to find my way back to TE Land.

I should have, of course, been there from the beginning. But there’s a time and place for everything, and apparently my time for CTP was last summer.

And what a whirlwind ride it’s been ever since. There’s a lot I would change about 2007 thru 2011 if I could, yep.

But I wouldn’t change anything about the past thirteen months for the world. The past year has just been remarkable and awesome, and I wouldn’t wanna be anywhere else than where I am right now.

In any case, I couldn’t let that milestone pass without mentioning it, so there ya go.

(And now I can actually take a day completely off if I wanna! As if…)  :-)

Anyway, be sure to watch this space on Tuesday ‘cos I’ve got something really cool to share that you are almost definitely going to wanna know about (or at least quite a few of you).

’til then, have a supercool awesome great excellent weekend!
