That’s a heck of a lot of people…
(I’m sure there was a name for numbers like that…probably in Yahtzee or some other dice game)
I didn’t write anything yesterday. I went to bed at 7:30 with a headache instead.
Yesterday was the 23rd of November 2016.
I started writing here on 23rd of November 2012.
That means the blog turned 4, and I didn’t even acknowledge it :(.
Luckily Claudette came to the rescue and congratulated it for me..
Thank you 🙂
4 years are a long time, but also not very long.
It’s gone fast, but also very slowly.
I am the same, but also very different.
My writing’s changed (a bit), but my subjects haven’t changed (much).
My blog hasn’t changed (much) since then, but my knowledge has (a lot). Since then I have made a very basic website for DB’s company, a very basic website for my molecules, and started to make one for a committee I’m part of, until they decided they didn’t think it was necessary to inform anyone about what they do. I have tested adding forums and making comment forms and polls and making page templates and even tried a tiny bit of code (which I have abandoned for some time in the future when I have more than a handful of spare minutes).
I am nowhere near close to being ‘good’ at making websites, but I am getting ‘better’. I noticed how much time I must’ve spent on here over the years when I was writing to a group of people yesterday who are trying to create a website, and having most of them think I was talking about flying to the moon when I used words like WordPress or themes or PlugIn or WordFence or multiple editors or posting-by-email.
Here’s to the next four(+) years and the next part of the learning curve :).
Incidentally, I wrote 444 posts in those 4 years.
Go and visit Claudette.
She’s one of my bestest blog-friends, and it’s her birthday today (HAPPY BIRTHDAY CLAUDETTE! :)).
Also, my blog is 3 years old.
And it was my birthday on Friday.
Everything points to having a Blorthday Party.
I’m not really sure how Blorthday Parties work, so you’ll have to help me out. All ideas welcome (although I reserve the right to declare them ridiculous as I see fit…).
As a start, I suggest you post me a blog url you think I might like, before heading off to see Claudette.
If it’s YOUR birthday too, tell us so. It won’t necessarily make anything happen, but at least we’ll know 😉
if a journey starts with the first step,
then I guess a blog starts with the first word..
