Happy One-Year Anniversary, Little Caboose!

The Little Caboose Blog

This month marks the one-year anniversary of The Little Caboose Blog. It feels like a real accomplishment to have kept up with this blog for a year. I didn’t know how things would go when I started it and if I would be able to keep up with it. Also, I really hesitated to start, there are already so many bloggers out there, and I didn’t want to be just another “noise” on the Internet. But I knew I had to try it anyway. This year has been a practice of not putting the mute button on myself. It’s been a practice of running with all my zany ideas, even when I’m convinced that no one else will care or, worse, might think they are silly.

I’m reminded of something Elizabeth Gilbert said in her most recent book, “Big Magic”: “So this, I believe, is the central question upon which all creative living hinges: Do you have the courage to bring forth the treasures that are hidden within you?”

I’m trying to be courageous. So, thank you for coming on this journey with me. I appreciate all of your comments and encouragement. It’s been even more fun than I thought it’d be.

To celebrate and as a thank you, I’m giving away a $15 Amazon gift card to one lucky reader! The contest is only open through Thursday (so act fast!).
