A year ago today I started this blog! If you go back to my original post from last year you’ll notice it was a stormy day like today but without the Wizard of Oz drama the above picture exudes. When I first started Cija’s Quips last year I actually wanted to name it Baltimore Moments to chronicle my daily adventures in my current city but I just couldn’t be committed to one topic. Thanks to my brother Asa I found a new name for my blog and the rest is history. After reading over my first post I see how unsure I was of adding my voice to that of the masses and I was a little judgey about the assumed narcissism attached to writing a blog but I stand corrected. By starting a blog on Tumblr I’ve come across a lot of awesome blogs with great information and connected with new people across the country and around the world…how amazing! I’ve enjoyed adding new pages, my newest is Books I Love, where I list a book and include a random line from the book; if you have any book recommendations please post it on that page. Thanks to all my readers and cheers to another year!
