In all of the madness that has been my life for the past few weeks, I missed the fact that I have survived 200 posts, in fact this is lucky post number 2003.
I started this blog back in June 2008 as a place to come and hide, to write about things that wowed me, amazing things that my kids have achieved, other things that bugged me but generally just a place to come and be me. I also wanted this place to remind me of things that happened in my life and in my world. Realistically, I didn’t actually think I would stick to blogging, but it has become a part of my life and I miss not blogging.
As a result of living here over the past 9 months, I have met some wonderful people. Is it appropriate to say that I have made some amazing friends? I often find myself saying ‘my friend in …’ or ‘I know someone who…’ referring to bloggers I feel that I know better than I know better than many people in my life, therefore I guess you are my friends.
So to celebrate my bicentenary of blogging I shall throw out a few random facts about this blog
- Finding a name for this place was almost as hard as choosing a name for my real kids. All the really cool names were taken. I wanted a name that had some significance to me even if it was random. It was easy to name my other blog – superRelish as it was taken from the way my son sang Supercallifragilistic and added in my favourite food – home made relish (yum)
- My most viewed post was this one on the 23rd of July 2008. It was a nothing post but it had the magic words Hannah Montana in it. I now know that she is one well searched for person. My ‘busiest’ blog day was courtesy of Ms Montana, with more than 1800 views. Hmmm, I wonder if the mere mention of her name will lift my stats through the roof again?
- The most recent search that sent someone my way was ‘pregnant swimwear’. I don’t think I have ever written anything about swimwear when related to pregnancy. Go figure!
- And finally, just for fun, here is my wordle. Hopefully if you click on it, it will become large enough to read.
Thanks for reading, Del
