Happy B-day J~land!!

Hey guys. Just a quickie to wish all from J~land a very happy birthday!!!

J~land kinda started the whole internet thing for me. It's where I learned how this whole thing works and it remains very special to me.

I've made friends for life from that place. I remember the good times (The Cheers style Birthday Video) and the bad times (The vivi awards dramas) or whatever they were called, but throughout all of it, I met some amazing people, most of whom I'm still in touch with and consider them to be part of my family.

One memory inparticular that stands out for me:

One day, I added a video of me singing a cover version of 'What hurts the most' by Rascall Flats, just for the hell of it. The response I got blew my mind and I'll never forget it. It meant so much to me. People advertised my songs on other blogs, people asked permission to use them on their blogs, and one guy in the USA even wanted to arrange for me to go over and sing the 'Star Spangled Banner' at a sports event. HOW AMAZING!!
I've never stopped singing since, and it even got me into a boyband a few years back. I stopped for a while but recently started again and I'm making plans again.
Thank you to ALL OF YOU for giving me the incentive to do this. You really REALLY changed my life. Thank you!!

I miss blogging, but it just never felt the same for me since J~land closed it's doors..:-(

Love ya all so much, and miss you!!

Jland is sadly missed, Stevie, but there are now other ways to keep in touch, as Lyn says. I'm very pleased it's made a difference in your life, as it has in mine and many others'.
