I received notice last week from the good people at WordPress that my blog reached its 10-year mark.
Happy Anniversary, dear blog.
I recall when I began chiseling its foundation in January all those years ago, publishing my first post in February, and getting my first follower. I received many more followers in the next ten months, and I eagerly followed my followers, we commenting back and forth, and I feeling like a new tenant of part of a happy community. Sadly, I no longer hear from those bloggers. Two of the blogs from 2011 are in limbo and haven’t shown activity in several years; the rest of my followers of that year are no longer around.
All the same, it has been a fun ride and I haven’t run out of things to post! Here’s to ten more years.
