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.
