This meme was amusing enough last year (DW), that I thought I'd repeat it this year. The rules:
It’s a look at the last year, through the first line of my first blog post of each month. The thing about LJ memes is that you don't always know where it'll take you, so I'm willing to try. I quickly modified this, since my blogging format includes boldface headers to sections, so I give you the header and first line after that, though not the blog entry title. I also didn't include any links. This is all cut-and-paste, typos and all. If you want to see the context or whole posts, or just the whole year, you can go to my 2012 LiveJournal page or 2012 Dreamwidth page.
