Two years!

Happy Birthday, blog!

I started this blog two years ago today. I didn’t know when I began writing what pleasure blogging would give me, how much I would learn from other bloggers around the world and what very nice people I would ‘meet’.

So, to all you readers out there, whether you’ve popped in just once or you’ve become a follower, thank you for your encouragement, your kind comments, your interest. I never realised that being followed might actually be something to appreciate  – but that’s the difference between following and stalking, I suppose;-)

  1. Gosh - congratulations! Not sure how long I have been blogging - my current blog had to be started when there were problems with my previous one - some sort of technical problem which sent all the text all over the place. Great to get to know people through this lovely community!

  2. Happy blogaversary !! Two years only ? I started in June 2006 without knowing what a blog was ! What an adventure. But it's true, I learned such a lot and "met" so many virtual friends, for me as a retired girl, it's really the ideal hobby especially because I love to write and I also love to read about other people's life in other countries.

  5. Congratulations!
    May there be many more. (years and blogposts)

    I started just over two years ago, feeling very tentative about the whole thing, not really knowing what to say and saying the little I said very badly.

    Like you, I am still enjoying it and like you I love the way blogging can open horizons.

    Here's to you and your blog. Cheers!

  8. Congratulations on your two years, Janice.
    I know what you mean. I never knew blogging could be as much fun as it is, and I certainly never expected to make friends. I've already met two, and am about to meet two more next month, but I feel I have many friends I haven't met and many I may never meet. It's a wonderful feeling.
    Congratulations again, my friend - and please hug a dog or more for me.

  27. Congratulations! We must have started about the same time. I have enjoyed your posts and love it
    when you decide to cover something in depth, like the
    mushroom piece! Today, writing takes me for ever, so photography has become main stay for the time being. And, yes, it is wonderful to be followed!
