Happy Anniversary with WordPress.com! You registered on WordPress.com 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.
I feel like a student at his graduation! I’m not in this picture though.
This isn’t me either, but I love the costume!
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!
This is me, dressed as a Roman Emperor, taken last year on the Isle of Wight!
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.
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.
A HUGE THANK YOU.
