345 days ago
One year ago I joined this community. At the time I was egotistic enough to think I was of intermediate skill level. Shortly after looking at the projects and the skills required to produce them on this site, I realized that I wasn’t even a strong rookie.
After a year of asking lots of stupid questions to lots of of wonderfully skilled people I have learned an enormous amount and I can visibly see how I have improved through the year. Although I wouldn’t consider myself as good yet as i originally thought I was a year ago.
Not only have I been inspired by the dozens of LJ’s I have talked to, but by dozens of LJ’s that didn’t even know that they helped me. From a few hundred emails and questions I have only had one person refuse to answer a question. I know I am impressed.
I can only say thank you to the entire group. You have been my instructors, my inspiration and my friends. I hope the future brings much more of the same. My hope in the future is to take trips around the country and get to physically meet many of the LJ’s I have been blessed to talk to.
I hope someday to inspire others as you have done for me.
