Another One Year Post

Is it ok to have two, one year posts in the same year? I guess in this case it is because one year ago today I created The Modern Day Redneck blog.

In that first blog I wrote on December 20 2009 I introduced myself and the family and talked about a little Christmas party the family and I went to and were greeted as the rednecks. Since that time a year ago I have been called that at least a thousand times.
Take tonight for instance. Our friends D&R took us out for pizza and on the way home I was getting all warm and fuzzy, my butt was really getting hot. It was getting so hot I actually thought something was wrong with me. It was kinda like after you eat a whole plate of peppers or something kinda hot. I was squirming and moving around trying to get comfortable so much they finally asked what was wrong with me. I simply told them that there was something majorly wrong because my butt is on fire.
No help there because they all just started laughing. I rolled the window down to get some fresh air but nothing was helping. I though about telling them to take me to the doctor it was getting so bad, I was burning up.
That is when Rhonda looked down and saw that her heated seats were on full blast. I tell you this, if you have never sat in one of those heated seats before then my goodness be careful, they will hurt you if you don't know whats going on. Yup, I was called a redneck.

What I write is the truth, good or bad. If you have been with me this year you have seen some highs and many lows in this new adventure my family has undertook. Sometimes I stay on track with the grand design of it all and other times I daydream and just want to get something going.
You have seen projects get started but never finished and you have also seen projects built on the spur of the moment. Yall have read about what bothers me the most and on the other hand what is important and really makes my life worth getting up for every morning.
If you have read what I wrote this year then you know about my faith in God, the love for my family and my belief in this county.
All of yall have put up with my non spelling, no grammar and sometimes pointless style of writing.
By now everyone of you know me better than most of the people I call my friends. I consider you family.

After one year of blogging, Modern Day Redneck has been visited 10,922 times. This blog has a reader base of anywhere between 40 to 60 people a day from all over the world.
I would like to get that number up to 100 readers a day by the end of this year.

I want to thank all yall for reading and commenting when you can. Please keep it up because I have some good stuff happening this year. (Have you ever heard of an Egg-Loo?)


  1. Don't ya know it's only good to be in the HOT SEAT if you're the one controlling the heat!?

    I can't remember when I started following your blog, Redneck, but I've enjoyed every post. I think we were cut from the same cloth, as my grandmother would say. I've learned a lot and laughed a lot and been inspired by a lot of your projects. So I hope you just keep doin' what you're doin' for a long time to come!

    Merry Christmas to you and all of yours!

  2. Ooooh an Egg-loo! Cant wait to see it. I have to admit I havent been reading your blog since the start but have enjoyed every post for the last six or so months! Wishing you and yours a very merry Christmas (even the animals)

  3. Congrats on the anniversary! We all think of you as family too.
