Happy Blogaversary to me

A little orange trophy just informed me that I’ve been a WordPress user for one year now, and I just thought I’d quickly share that before turning in.

If you go back through my archives (which I wouldn’t advise) you’ll notice the first post is dated somewhere in March last year, but those first few posts were merely imported from Blogger where I had my first attempt at blogging.  My first post on WordPress was actually only on 13 November last year, and not on this blog (though I reposted it here later).  The first actual post on if all else fails…use a hammer was only on 16 November (though I wouldn’t advise reading it either).

Still, it has now been a whole year that I’ve been on WordPress.  In that year I’ve brought you about hundred-and-seventy posts, including twenty-two Song Title Challenges, eleven reviews (seven books; four movies), vacation photos, puppets, silliness and seriousness.  I’ve passed both the hundred-followers and hundred-posts milestones and made quite a few new friends from all across the world.  I’ve watched the world map on my stats-page fill up with colour as more and more flags were added to my collection (including the only non-rectangular national flag in the world) and I can only hope that by this time next year I’ll have them all.

I must confess, at first I didn’t expect to enjoy blogging this much, but in this year it has become such a part of me that I don’t know if I’d be able to give it up if necessary.

To my regular followers, thanks for sticking with me so far.  I hope to keep giving you reasons to do so.

You may now congratulate me 😉

P.S.  If you haven’t yet, go download Issue 4 of The Paperbook Collective right now where you’ll find an original piece of never-seen-before flash fiction by yours truly (that’s me) on page 5.  Then come on back here and tell me what you think, okay?  (P.P.S.  It’s my first ever piece of published fiction outside of blogging.)

Have a great week.

    1. Thanks! It’s interesting how many of the people I’m following are also celebrating their bloggiversaries now. November is apparently the month people start blogging, though I only started doing this regularly in May. Perhaps it’s an autumn thing.

    1. Thanks. Apparently November is the month to start blogging. And not that it matters, but your blogaversary also coincides with my mother-in-law’s birthday.

      1. And Happy Birthday to your mother-in-law! Its definitely the month to be born in – the vast majority of my friends and family have November birthdays. Its a total pain, so close to Christmas. I hope she has a great day (and that you manage to think of a Christmas present as well).

  1. I too had an anniversary and also was published in Issue Four of the Paperbook Collective. I liked your poem and the discovery (or at least the recording of) mankind as the cornerstone of assuaging fear. Really good thought stuff. Congrats on the year and your accomplishments.
