I was notified by WordPress yesterday. They informed me that the day was my fifth anniversary of blogging, since the 31st of July, 2012. Those five years have gone quickly, don’t they always?
Remember when you thought that 10 views was exciting? I do. If you got a comment, just the one, it made your day. If you got four comments, you might go so far as to telephone people about it, in your excitement. Just looking at the stats was exciting. If you had eight visitors, you were over the moon. Eight people read your blog post. That was fine, and good enough.
On my fifth anniversary, I enjoyed a total of 203 views, from 108 visitors. As of now today, I have received 190 views, from 101 visitors. In the wider world of blogging, that is just a few hours. But in my world, it is amazing, and more that I ever hoped for. So, I celebrate my fifth anniversary, and relish the engagement, and everyone who bothers to visit and read my blog.
Once again, my best wishes to you all. Pete.
