bloggiversary

Well it's a year today since I started to blog.

I've met some wonderful people.

I've learned a lot.
But I've also wasted a lot of time...

And I've acquired this annoying habit...

Of leaving three dots...

Everytime I write what ought to be a simple sentence...

Ah, the dreaded 3 dot syndrome. There's no cure...

ABAB:
Congratulations on your first year of blogging...My first visit and I have spent an hour or more reading every single post and have thoroughly enjoyed it all.
I have a sister who lives in Brittany near Dinan, so, I read you site with particular interest.
I came to your site via Leslie who has you down as one of her favourite blogs... I shall be back!
(oops three dots...) I just love them!....Oh and exclamation marks too!!

P.S. Leslie, as in The Pedalogue.

I always think of it as a pause to allow another into the conversation...

Happy blogversary!

I love them... but can't remember what they're called... some polysyllabic posh word that makes you look clever, if you can remember it... but you probably can't either, judging by previous posts, so it doesn't matter...

Happy first blogiversary! I'm often guilty of The Three Dots too.

Zhoen said...

Ellipses.

I've loved reading your blog since you started writing. Happy one year anniversary, you're a wonderful writer and I try to never miss one of your posts.

Jean said...

I didn't realise it was only a year. Must have found you quite quickly. Glad I did :-)

Ah the dots and dashes! Yes, I too am terribly prone. Have been really trying to stop it lately, but I still have relapses.

Lucy said...

Yeah, what is it about blog writing that makes you do that three dots thing? Must be because it's trying to be like conversation, it's a sort of drawn breath, isn't it...

Happy bloggy birthday, I got here first! (I think.) I forgot my blog's 2nd one but I don't think it's offended.

Ah, we're in the same blog vintage then... Well, obviously, some of you are grands crus and some of us just slosh around... please keep blogging.

Rosie said...

thank you all for forgiving my elliptical(?) comments...and your kind encouragement.
I expect I shall continue to whitter on whether I have anything to say or not.

Paul said...

Enjoying your blog, heres my site and the wifes blog...

Finally finished 2005 http://www.halfacrefarm.bretondiary.com/# and the wife's blog is up and running http://rozinbrittany.blogspot.com/

I wasn't happy with the old forum, so I have created a new one here http://halfacrefarm.forumice.net/forum.htm

But still having problems setting the webcam up.

Keep it up rosie, you have been doing such a good job. I too have been infected by the dreaded three dot syndrome. They are acceptable punctuation marks known as ellipsis... so I am not looking for a cure...

Congrats on the first year and looking forward to hearing about all your new adventures in year two. My blog habits include sentences without subjects and the over use of the dash. See what blogging does to us - bad grammatical habits and overuse of the computer!

Happy bloggy birthday. Just wanted to say...thanks to you...I am sailing through my TEFL course and looking forward to finding some work in the New Year. TTx

Daisy said...

OMG I know exactly what you mean!... I even do it after exclamation marks. Bon Bloggiversary!

Congratulations on your one year anniversary.
It's a lot of work for no money but strangely addictive isn't it?
And that three dot thing seems to be a given for all bloggers.
