August 13, 2009


On August 8th, 2009 Me & My Ego turned 4! ( I know I'm a few days late). I wanted to have a party and go around sending invitations through every ones blog, but I didn't want anyone to think I am senile.

When I first started blogging, my blog was called the Trials & Tribulations of JenellyBean.

Blogger was a very different place then.

There was no such thing as "add a widget".

You had to manually add all your blog friends into the HTML of the template.

You couldn't join peoples blogs.

There was no such thing as a follower.

Thanks to everyone who has been reading my blog over the years.
Thanks to everyone who has joined my blog.
Thanks to everyone who leaves comments on my blog.
Thanks to everyone I've built relationships with on my blog.

How totally awesome. Well I have yet a while for a blogger birthday which will not be until April of next year. It's ok, I can hold it down until then. Well happy birthday to your blog and I'm glad we've crossed this path. Thanks for comment about the music.

Happy Blogger Birthday!!! I just started in January and I can't imagine that blogging was so different just 4 years ago. There are still so many things I'm learning. Enjoy your day Birthday Girl!

you beat me to it. i was trying to post on your blog about under construction how you even changed your name from the trials and tribulation..

blogger was a different place then. even the templates were different BUT you always had the dopest little gadgets on your page without the widget adders we had now...

it seems like it is only a couple of us on here from way back when

stay true and keep blogging

It's funny how time flies when you blog. I had a couple but deleted them tried again and now I'm back into full time blogging.

FYI:: I'm doing Ok I'm feeling a little weak but hopefully I can't bust this hospital sometimes soon.

It went by sooo fast... you wont even notice it.

There were months that would go by and I wouldn't post much of anything. My blog is busier in the summer and slower in the fall and winter.


Time really does fly when you blog.

When I typed my first blog post I was going into my last year of college... just started dating Coco Puff, and was working as an RA in the dorms.

Now, I've graduated, getting my Masters Degree, getting married to Coco Puff and I'm a teacher!
