Celebrating five years made me think about all the posts I’ve done. Looking into the stats, it turns out this is my 1,402th post, which got me wondering about which ones I was especially fond of. I had a think and came up with the following. Feel free to have a look at any of them or share any posts from your blog that have particular resonance for you.
Yep, you’ve guessed it. It’s been five years ago since I set up this blog with this very short post. It’s been a delight to see this blog evolve as it has reflected my continuing development as a person and wider array of interests and passions. It’s also been a pleasure to read your blogs, interact with you and even get the chance to meet some of you in person. Below are my most popular posts in terms of views from my most common categories.
Just a quick note to say I’ve passed 2,000 followers. I wanted to thank you all for your continued support. You really do help make this blog what it is. Reading your comments, following your own blogs and being part of the WordPress community has been a delight.
It’s a pretty cloudy day, so what better way to turn the gloominess away than by accepting a Sunshine Blogger Award, courtesy of the awesome Ruth at FlixChatter. If you’re not one of her many followers, go and do it. She’s great.
I don’t normally take too much notice of stats. That’s never been why I do the blog or what I judge it by. I don’t even check the end of year stats. But I just noticed that my followers recently passed 1,500 followers and I wanted to thank you all. I know how many great blogs there are and how busy you all are. On the last notification post celebrating three years I offered you the chance to ask me whatever you were curious about. This time I thought I’d do something different and give some extra information about the blog.
Within the past year I’ve discovered so many wonderful new blogs. And the ones I’ve been following before that have come such a long way too. As I’ve said before and will always believe, this blog is nothing without the people who read it and those who offer their thoughts and opinions. It’s also been a pleasure getting to know quite a few of you in real life too.
I don’t normally post pictures of myself here, but I thought why not do something a little different. I hope you enjoy this maverick set of recent-ish photos. Feel free to ask about the context or fashion involved. Continuing on that theme, if any of you have any questions you want to ask me about myself or the blog, you’re more than welcome to ask them below.
An awards post now. My thanks to the ever awesome Vinnie who continues to entertain, educate and impress on his stylish blog, for the nomination. You should definitely hop on over if you haven’t already.
I’ll have to skip the 11 fun facts for reasons of time, but I’ll happily answer Vinnie’s questions and provide my own for nominees.
I’ve been included in the very awesome Abbi’s Christmas-themed ‘Season’s Greetings’ post. Abbi has a super fantastic blog and I really recommend you go and take a visit if you don’t know her blog already.
A big milestone for my blog as I just found out that I just passed 1,000 posts. I just wanted to thank you all for your continued interest and support. One of the great joys of setting up this blog has been interacting with you guys and seeing how your own sites have evolved.
