My Third Blog Anniversary!

This month marks the  third anniversary of my blog. I am proud of my blog and love the friends I have made. I am grateful to L. who sends photos searching for just the right ones. The blogging is slowing now and then something will happen. I will feel the need to get a post ready to share. Sometimes I feel that I have said all there is to say about ttwd. It works.  Marriage is heaven and enough said. The bumps come and go and we move on facing forward! Right?

Blogland has certainly changed in the three years I have been here. Bloggers have come and gone. I do think that a blog can run its course............ when the things you want to say have been said many, many times. I think the blog needs to stay up and I think the readers will come and go. I can come and go as well. Opinions are welcomed here. Do you agree with what I have said or do you have a different opinion? I want to hear from you. 

Thanks, L.


  1. Mere,,Happy Blog Anniversary,,can't believe it's been 3 years. May you have many more,,they need you here to help up and coming ladies.


  2. Happy Blogiversary Meredith, congratulations on your third anniversary! Wishing you many more. I'm so glad you are here and always enjoy visiting.


  3. I agree with Leah, people do need you here. I wish the blogs that I read initially were still up. I'd be reading them from a very different perspective now but I'd love to reread them, I know they'd still speak to me. I love the things you share in your blog Meredith, both about ttwd and otherwise. You are inspiring, you speak from the heart, it's fresh and interesting, I don't feel it's been said before. I suppose just like people, blogs come and go but I hope yours is here to stay at least for a little longer. I for one would miss 'your twist' a great deal.

  4. Meredith,
    Yes, I agree that you are inspiring to women just starting their journey. I fell in love with your blog from the first time I read it. It was eloquent and classy and unique. To this day, I don't think there is anyone who does it just like you.

    But I do not think that is why I hope you choose to continue. Just like you have treasured watching many beautiful sunsets with your Jack, I know that there are many more to be enjoyed. With each post you share, you are in a different place. Your "New Twist" is never static. You and Jack reinvented your marriage and never looked back. I think the writing is part of what keeps ttwd fresh, and it makes us take the time to pause and look at where we are and where we would still like to go.

    You are a master at taking the little details of love and showing how they are part of the bigger picture. I, for one, hope you stay the course a bit longer, not just for what you have to give to your readers but for what you still have to gain.

    Goodnight, Mrs. Calabash, Wherever You Are.....

  5. Happy Blogiversary, Mere! I agree that some blogs run their course if they are simply using it as more of a personal diary to figure things out. But for those who are sharing good and bad as well as pieces of the 'vanilla' life, I think the blog can go on for a lot longer. Really depends on the blogger and why they are blogging.

    I really do believe you have so much to offer blogland that it would be a big shame if you stopped blogging have to do what is best for you and your marriage.

    Hugs and blessings...Cat

  6. Happy blogiversary! I don't often comment, but I do read all your posts as you're a great blogger and speak to the reader.
    My blog is slowly slipping away from me, I don't want to stop or disappear but there is nothing new to write about. I won't take my blog down and hope new readers will find it even if I don't write much. I look forward to your future posts.

  7. Happy 3rd blogiversary Meredith. I've only read you blog for just over a year. Everyone has been so refreshing bringing new ideas and teaching so many of us different ways. I've enjoyed it immensely. Hope you decide to continue as I would miss your stories about you and Jack. Also L pictures.

    Hugs Lindy

  8. Happy blogiversary. I took a hiatus from blogging for abit, when i needed some time and space for myself in real life. And didn't quite want to spend too much time writing here. Things were also a little uncertain in the d/s realm so i didn't feel like i had much to say.

    I suppose it really depends on what one has to say or what the blog is for.. i must say tho that i do miss some of the people I used to follow who now don't write anymore. But I'm also glad at finding new blogs :)

  9. Glad you started blogging and I'm glad you kept with it. It's good for you and us.

  10. My how time passes so quickly and yet your messages remain timeless. What you may have shared at the onset, while repeated, may have a "new twist" in your message as you have grown and learned from your mistakes. You have a true gift for writing that helps others in their journey. It's ok to give some space for yourself and blog when it strikes you. I think I can speak for many when I say you are missed when you are away. On the other hand you are so appreciated for your support here in blogland and behind the scenes. You are one special lady and I for one am thankful for your friendship and hope one day to meet in person. Happy Anniversary Meredith. I hope we can continue to hear your words of wisdom for years to come.

  11. Happy blogiversary!!!!! I've missed reading since I've been gone, but I'm hoping me to get caught back up. :)

  12. Happy Belated Blogiversary Meredith and congratulations on your third anniversary. Here's to many more.

    I'm happy you are part of this community.


  13. A very Happy Blogiversary to you, Meredith! :) Thank you for sharing 3 years of posts with all of us! You share, you help, you inspire! L's pics add a special dimension to the stories that you tell. You are an important part of blogland, and I hope that you will continue to write.

    It is my feeling that everyone here is understanding about real life priorities, and how often we are able to be here. I know that I have wrestled with a busy and difficult time in my life, and not being able to get here as I would like to. People understand, and welcome one back when they are back. So I hope that you come and go as you need to.

    Know that you are a treasure; your stories of ttwd, around the growth of an already well cemented love, with your caring Hoh, are thought-provoking, fun and touching. A good writer, we hope to read more, as you are moved to post- sporadically, regularly, or just here and there! Thanks for sharing, dear friend! Here's to ttwd and a condo model that will never come to be! Many hugs,

    <3 Katie

  14. I took a lengthy break for awhile, and took the blog down. What made me put it back up was recalling my early days of this dynamic. I poured through all of your blogs wanting to walk the journey from your beginning to where you were now once a lot of transitions had been worked through. I had my reasons for wanting to not be in the online community, but when I get an email from someone who said they could relate to a post, that it helped them process or discuss with their HOH, that benefit is important. Even if I can't blog as often as I'd like or months may go by, someone may benefit from an older post.

  15. Mere, I enjoy your posts continually. After, my D/s relationship stopped, it was difficult to read any blogs here or in the more extreme because I was sad and envious and hated being vanilla again. I deleted most of the blogs I read but not yours. You were always this voice of reason coming thru my cell phone.

    I have now embraced the change, Don doesn't want a D/s or DD and it's fine. I'm happy where I/we are in life. And the only thing I know, is that it will change again, change continually.

    You are a lovely constant out there. For me it's a peek into a life I loved and still miss but any pain i felt is gone. I enjoy your posts tremendously.
