Happy Birthday! Or Anniversary. Or something.

Today we are one year old. The Slushbusters blog, that is. The Slushbusters as the group we now have are roughly a year older than that, although some of us have been part of this critique group for even longer. And we came up with our name in April of 2008, immediately following our first group road trip to an SCBWI event.

Anyway, it's the birthday of the blog. And I wanted to acknowledge it. Imagine me typing this while wearing a party hat and blowing on one of those horn things that unroll the crazy paper tube. (What are those called anyway?)

I propose a toast. To our friends, both the ones we started this journey with, and the many of you we've met out here in the blogosphere. We've been lucky to find you. Thanks for coming to the party.

Happy birthday indeed!

I don't often comment, however, I am an avid reader of your blog.

Good stuff :)

Thank you, Quillfeather. We appreciate your just being there! I follow yours too.

Yea!!!!! Congratulations!!!!! I didn't realize you've only been together for one year. We had our first meeting today, and we talked about ya'll. Marcie thinks that you may have been a couple of rows behind her in Arlington. I wasn't able to make it - we've been hit with some unexpected bills. Sigh.
But we talked today about going to the book festival as a group. Perhpas we could plan a get-together around that time?

Amy, we've been together longer than that, but only had the blog for one year. Steph started the group about 4 years ago, and it's been around 2 years with all our current members.
