Another Year Gone By…

November 2nd 2013 1 minute to read

That’s right folks, as of today, is twelve years old!

It blows my mind that not only have I been blogging for over twelve years now (since March 2001) but that I’ve kept the same domain name, consistently, for over a decade.

I’ve gone from being 19 to 32 on this blog and it’s given me more opportunities (and grief lol) than I ever could have imagined. Through OSN I’ve met some of the most amazing individuals and some people that I just regret coming into contact with. I love having so much history in my archives to look back on.

Overall I wouldn’t change any of it!

This post is over a year old which means the content may be outdated or no longer accurate.



I only got four hours of broken-up sleep last night. I’ve never been good at napping. I’m just left in this exhausted awake state of being.


Happy/Blessed Beltane, everyone!

Playing Catch-Up

I am pretty sure the last two weeks are catching up because I am beyond exhausted today. Trying to get caught up with the online world.

I Redesigned, Again

I redesigned OSN. It looks best at higher screen resolutions. That’s where you get all of the fancy effects. It’s fine on mobile but absolutely shines on a computer. Hopefully, everything works across the board. I tried to make the homepage an actual one, harkening back to the olden days of blogging.

It’s just amazing that you’ve been blogging so long! I think your blog is how I “found” you online to start… although I have no idea now how I found the blog. I just remember being so impressed with your awesome photos. Happy birthday, OSN!


Happy anniversary!!! I wish I could say I stuck with one domain or even two for as long as I’ve been blogging.. It’s been what? Almost 14 years now D: Holy tolito that makes me feel old…

I’m pretty sure I’ve been following you since the beginning. Twelve years is such an awesome milestone. I’ve jumped around with domains, but blogging-wise I’m right there with you. I hope you’ll continue to blog as you feel comfortable & interested in doing so.

Happy anniversary!!!

Twelve years, what a feat. Congratulations on the anniversary of OSN. I hope you find your groove and make whatever decision on continuing, or not, that works best for you. I know I’ve always been grateful for the things you taught me. Thank you.

WOW! Congrats on a huge milestone! I can’t imagine what kind of wonderful things I would have blogged about at 19…I’m glad those embarassing tidbits are sealed off from public view in a paper journal, lol! I love that you’ve maintained the same domain and kept writing for 12 years. So cool! :)
