happy anniversary to me


I’ve been on WordPress for 5 years and what do I have to show for it?

Did I finally publish a book?


Did I become some kind of popular blogger?


Did I make money from blogging?


But I’ll tell you what did happen during those 5 years that’s more important than all of the above:

I learned the basics about blogging and got comfortable with expressing my thoughts in this space…

I learned to stop talking about my love of writing to those who think it’s unimportant because it’s not worth the frustration…

I’ve made a number of AMAZING online friends that I never would have met if it weren’t for taking a chance on that first WordPress Writing 101 course…


So happy anniversary to me and thanks for being the reason I keep sticking around.

  1. I know you posted that last picture for me. No, seriously, I don’t know that. It’s crazy of me to assume such a thing. But I appreciate that picture because, well, just look at him. ♥

    I’m glad we found each other. I have the same ‘No’ answers to the same questions you asked. All things I dreamed about but didn’t happen. Or I didn’t make them happen? If I’m honest, I think my fantasy was that they would just magically happen, not that I’d have to go through hell to get there.

    But… even without all that, I’m glad to have found you. ♥

    1. Lol. Seriously, I did post that last one for you. 😀 And the first one reminded me of the art you post. I’m glad I found you too. Yes, we need to do the work but it won’t be easy. It’s 2020, now or never.


      1. Aww… thanks. I feel so loved! And I don’t feel that super often so I appreciate it very much.

        Oh… I don’t have anything that could ever be published. It was a silly pipe dream for me. At this point, the best I hope for is being able to write anything at all!
