Eleven months ago to this very day I started out on a journey.

I have always enjoyed writing but had never shared my writing with anyone in particular. I wasn’t ashamed of it, I just never believed anyone would be interested.

I have never been particularly into modern technology. I don’t walk around glued to my mobile phone. It doesn’t even connect to the internet!

If someone had told me a year ago that I was going to embark on this amazing voyage of discovery and construct my own blog, I would have laughed in their face.

If someone had told me that I would manufacture a blog and then still be going after eleven months, I would have thought they were insane.

This can’t really be happening? This can’t be me?

It is a revelation.

I have created 1,240 posts (this will be 1241!)

Written 369,840 words.

Received 23,246 Likes.

and gained 711 followers.

I can’t believe it! I can’t believe that I have done this.

I wish to thank everyone who has read one of my posts and liked it for giving me the confidence and encouragement to keep me blogging.

Thank you to every one of my followers. I hope you still enjoy what I write and continue to do so.

Going forward, are there any requests for a story you would like me to write? Please leave suggestions in the comment.

Have a nice day. πŸ™‚

People are far too complicated to be able to describe in a few words so I am not even going to try.

  1. Congratulations, dear Kristian! I share your amazement when it comes to blogging discipline. I too am someone who easily gives up projects because I lose interest in them, or they are too time consuming, but I have surprised myself with my dedication to The Cove… Keep up the good work πŸ™‚ xx

    1. Thank you very much for your kind words. I do try, I like the fact that with writing, you create something out of nothing, so you aren’t taking away from someone else. I’ll keep going. Thanks for the encouragement. πŸ™‚

  3. What surprises me most is that you have only been doing this for 11 months. Your blog is entertaining, with senstational stories.
    Here’s to another wonderful 11 more months, and outstanding works for the Mind of Kristian. Cheers!!! 😊

  4. Great post. I was quite similar to you, in that I didn’t think anyone would be interested in reading anything I wrote. I really struggled with starting my blog, putting myself ‘out there’, exposing my vulnerabilities, etc, etc. I’m glad I’ve done this, as I suspect you are too. I love to read your posts, so keep it up!
    By the way, where we differ…you’ve got loads more followers than me! πŸ™‚

    1. Thanks Linda. Followers are not that important, because most of them don’t actually read, i probably have a few dozen people who I regularly interact with,, though it’s always nice to meet another friendly blogger. Thanks for your comment. πŸ™‚

    1. That’s brilliant timing Britchy because I was looking in the mirror this morning cleaning my teeth and staring at all the lines around my eyes and the grey hairs at my temples thinking “God, you look OLD”. They sat the Camera never lies, but it clearly does if It makes me look like a 6th former. Bless you for cheering me up. x
