Imagine my surprise, when among the notices about likes and followers tucked into my comments page this morning, I found not a reminder about turning back clocks or about the US mid-term elections, but this – from none other than the Good People at WordPress:
You registered on WordPress.com 5 years ago!
Thanks for flying with us. Keep up the good blogging!
WHAT, I thought… FIVE years?! And, at just shy of 500 blog posts (496 to be exact), that averages out to 100 a year.
Could I have ever imagined that this blog would last this long; that it would evolve into the adventure that it’s become and that I would meet such a vast universe of bloggers, travelers, writers, photographers, people-with-pain, seekers of healing, beautiful and courageous souls?
Ahhh, how blessed are we – am I. Thank you all for your support, kindness and countless blessings.
Thank you, I was dazed and dazzled by the news 😉
Crikey, good work!
Thanks mate 😉
Aww, that’s so sweet, we share the same WP blog anniversary but I’ve only notched up 3 years so far! Happy Days, Amit! xxx
Gracias dear Lottie! And congratulations to you too 😉 xo
Blog anniversaries have become another milestone marker of our lives! Congratulations – I think five years also means you can buy yourself a gift of something wood :).
Ha! Thanks Hayley… I’ve been wanting to get myself a bamboo straw, and since bamboo is really a species of wood, that’s a perfect fit!
Congratulations on this milestone. I’m only at 3 years, and there have been times when I’ve wondered why I was doing this at all. But seeing your lovely blog and reading of your successes makes me feel inspired to continue. Best wishes for many more posts!
Thank you for the wishes! Three years is an equally significant milestone… it’s the ‘sticking to it’ that counts 😉
