Three Year Blogiversary.


World Press has sent me a little reminder that I kicked this ‘ere blog off a whole three years ago.

It started by playing second fiddle to another blog until I finally started copying posts from there across to this one.  Gradually the other platform went into decline, and last year I abandoned that blog.  

I think the decision to become a tiny minnow in a big sea was better, in the long run, than being a whale in a lake.   I have met a very good number of fascinating bloggers whom I wouldn’t have had the slightest hope of coming across in the old forum.  I have attracted more spam comments than legitimate ones, but the filter has coped well with that and the genuine ones have delighted me.  My stats are modest indeed in terms of what so many achieve, but they are pleasing nevertheless.

So, my thanks to WordPress and all those who visit these zany pages!   I am sure the ride together will be even more fun over year four.

    Happy third birthday – I am three and a half + X ( think we may be about the same age)


  11. Congrats Col! I LOVE WP and I often wonder why I didn’t move over sooner than I did 🙂


  12. misswhiplash says:

    i think that this is my third year as well…aroundabout this time..but I was silly and deleted the other blog without thought…So to you I say HAPPY ANNIVERSARY…
    That’s what I like about blogging and as Ceci says its the Blogging Fellowship..and I like this idea of it being a Fellowship. I am none to keen on the stats because that makes me feel like a competitor. It makes me feel as if I ought to do better but I feel that as long as I enjoy what I write and people enjoy reading what I do ..then s#d the stats…..

    Well, I (for one), am pleased that you “jumped across the pond.” It’s been a pleasure making your acquaintance, enjoying your views (both internal and external landscapes), and meeting your darling granddaughters.

    Congrats on three years! 😀

  22. Pussycat44 says:

    Well done, Col. It took me quite a while to get used to WP and I still haven’t managed to get widgets etc done, but that’s fine with me. I “Carry on, Regardless!”


  23. disperser says:

    Well, congratulations.

    . . . and I don’t mind being a minnow . . . attract too much attention on the Internet, and all sorts of creepy-crawlies come out of the woodwork.
