Belated Blogiversary

15 Apr

blogiversaryGreetings all, I have been MIA for a while but am back and what better way to celebrate my first full year in blogging than to use it as a shameless way to highlight my own posts by announcing the ‘winners’ in my very own blog awards, that is stolen from every awards show ever.   So please enjoy this selection from the past year and I hope to be getting back into the swing of things again for another year of words, pictures and a slight skewing of the English language.

    Good idea! I did a rundown of the most popular posts on my blog at the end of last year, which turned out to be quite interesting! Happy Blogiversary!

      Thanks very much, most popular posts, sounds interesting as well, I am always happy to borrow a few of your wonderful ideas (with credit of course) for this creaky old blog..one is blog years sometimes feels like 9 human years but I do love it.

      I may possibly have half inched it from someone else, I don’t quite recall, I would be great as a dodgy witness at trial.

      I couldn’t afford the fireworks and posh buffet this year so I couldn’t have a huge blog bash, maybe next year I will have a glittering and even more self centred awards do.

            Someone very near and dear to me years ago made up the following word (she’s very good at this – as are you, and of course myself, now that I think on this lol) the word is … Anticipatious! Sums things up nicely I think! 🙂

      Thank you, it has dropped off recently in terms of hits but it’s been a great year, lots of awesome people met and fantabulous combinations of words rendered before mine eyes. Now the challenge is to diversify and keep you guys interested, perhaps the first ever blog free gift when you log on.

        I had a surprising “Congratulations on Five Years With WordPress” the other day. Was hoping they would give me a free gift, but alas .. they gave me the customary image to portray on my blog and it’s attempted inspirational images as well as idiosyncratic idioms and intended informative items. Which probably makes less sense than the superlatively susceptible sounds of a …. drowning fish … okay, so I gave up at the end 😆

          It is something I have been mooting, I think the problem with that is finding something regular to post on it, something seperate yet with the blog theme, it will need a think…methinks.
