My 4 Year Blogging anniversary!

Happy Anniversary with!

You registered on 4 years ago.

Thanks for flying with us. Keep up the good blogging.

Today I had this message from WordPress.

Has it really been 4 years? Time creeps by like a time traveller with a dual personality seeming both to pass by swiftly and also to take its time.

4 years feels simultaneously like a lifetime and a moment.

I look back at some of the stories and poems i’ve written over the past 4 years with some pride but also some sadness. Did I cover myself with glory, or just waste my time?

If something I’d written entertained or was enjoyed by just one person, then it was worth it.

I will keep on keeping on.

Thank you


My 3 Year anniversary on WordPress.

3 Year Anniversary Achievement

Happy Anniversary with! You registered on 3 years ago.

Thanks for flying with us. Keep up the good blogging.

I have received a message from WordPress wishing me a Happy Anniversary.

It was three years ago today that I started my Blog.

I had just begun a creative writing course and I wanted an outlet for my writing, I’d read an article that mentioned WordPress and this seemed like fate was giving me a nudge.

I am a bit of a technophobe and yet WordPress made it all easy.

It’s been a strange journey the last three years but I have come so far.

I admit that my initial energy has turned rather lukewarm and I am not writing as much lately, but I do hope that this changes soon and I start getting into a better routine with more time for writing.

I will be posting some of my earliest posts. It will be interesting to see if my writing style has developed at all 🙂

Thank you to all my followers for joining me on my journey.

This isn’t me either, but I do feel like dancing for joy that I have managed to keep going with my blog for a full 365 days!

Initially I was just going to dip my toe into the water, just to check the temperature, but instead, I jumped in.

Writing has always been a passion of mine, but I never really shared much of what I wrote with anyone else. I have now found that Blogging has also become a passion, thanks to the support and encouragement I have received for you.

Thank you to everyone. I was also a bit wary of social media, that it was full of trolls lacking any vestige of empathy, just looking for an excuse to tear people down. Instead, here on WordPress, I have found a great bunch of people who are genuinely caring and supportive.

Thank you all very much.

My Six Monthiversary or my Half Anniversary


Six months ago, on the 7th of March, I set out on a journey. I stepped out of my comfort zone, flew by the seat of my pants and launched myself into the Blogosphere.

My Blog is six months old today and I am amazed that I have had the fortitude to have kept going this long.

I had no idea whether this would be something I would be any good at. I knew I enjoyed writing stories and poems, but I had no idea if anyone else would ever want to read them. It was a step into the unknown.

I discovered that the WordPress blogging community is one of the most supportive and friendliest that I could ever hope to find. With your kind support, I am still here.

If I ever have doubts that what I am doing is worthwhile, I can look back on the many kind words of encouragement  I have received.

I want to say a huge thank you to all the people who read my blog, who leave likes and make comments. I never expected to make so many blogging friends.

My 4 Monthiversary. – THANK YOU.

I started my blog on the 7th of March 2018.

Today marks the end of my first 4 months.

What a journey!

I would like to welcome all my recent followers, I hope that you find something you enjoy on my blog.

For those who have been followers for a while, Thank you. I have only kept going for SO LONG because of your support.

I started this journey to share my stories and poems and seek feedback.

I have also made friends with other bloggers.

This has been a far more engaging and positive experience than I expected.
