Wowie! A Whole Year For Me!

1 Year Anniversary Achievement


Happy Anniversary with!


You registered on one year ago.


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


Well – I have to admit I am rather surprised at myself. I did not think I would still be writing on WordPress. I hate looking at my statistics page – but it tells me there are over 700 posts! Very kindly, it doesn’t tell me if any of them are any good!

What a year it has been. Some memorable events. I am so grateful for all your lovely comments while I was preparing myself to say goodbye to wonderful Goldfinch. And many thanks for letting me work through some of what has happened in connection with Jack. And I especially appreciate the support I received this year when I had a loss that I don’t believe I will ever forget.

internet romanceIt is only because of the encouragement and support of so many other bloggers, with whom I love interacting, that I am still doing this a year after I started. Lots of thanks and lots of hugs owed to many!

It is definitely other bloggers that are the highlight of having a WordPress site. So many lovely bloggers whose posts I look forward to popping up in my WP Reader.

  • My highlight of the year is definitely THE GREAT BLOGGERS’ BAKE-OFF
  • I love all the challenges created by Rory, creator of A Guy Called Bloke and K9 Doodlepip!
  • I love SHARE-YOUR-WORLD now hosted by Melanie, creator of sparksfromacombustiblemind
  • I love SONG-LYRIC-SUNDAY now hosted by Jim, creator of A Unique Title For Me
  • I am grateful for all the great bloggers who have hosted writing prompts that have inspired so many posts that I would never have written without them. Special thanks to the prompt hosts:

The Haunted Wordsmith

This, That, and The Other

Sarah Elizabeth Moore

Light Motifs II

Sue Vincent’s Daily Echo

and many many more!

I shall celebrate when I am home from work by finishing the posts I intend to schedule for publishing later this week.

    1. Thanks Paula!
      I just came home from work and I am having a beer to celebrate and deciding which posts to work on.
      I can’t believe a whole year has passed!
      It’s all great fun though – apart from one scary blogger who thinks I acts as if I am 12 and wants me to grow up.
      lol – I have loved this year of blogging! 🙂

      1. I believe you can. I particularly enjoy your writing because it’s just about love and all it’s possibilities. It makes me think about it’s depths and different aspects.


                1. I think I know a lot more about agape, storge and philea than eros John.

                  Goldfinch has been trying to help me catch up in that regard.

                  But love is something I do have a very high regard for. I am sure we would not even exist if not for the love of our Creator 🙂

    1. Thank you 🙂 I have really enjoyed the past year I must admit. I feel really glad that I have come into contact with some amazing bloggers. I would love to carry on (probably cutting back a little with my posts – I think one a day maximum) but it’s great fun to be in contact with so many interesting and creative peeps 🙂


            1. Of course!!!
              I have not had any cake throughout April! I still intend to try the recipes of the bloggers who participated, but I couldn’t face any more cake after baking three myself…and I want to look gorgeous for Goldfinch when I see him so I am trying to stay away from sweet things 🙂

    1. lol – I am still trying to learn how to knit. I am not doing to badly with the basic stitch, thought I keep dropping stitches, but I cannot cast on without help. So far it’s triangular shaped patches with holes in….but if I make enough of them, maybe I could sew them together into some sort of sock entity?
