I know it is traditional to post on your first blogiversary, but apparently I have missed this, it was on 15th February! 😀
Blogging this past year has been a lot of fun, as well as having a lot more therapeutic qualities than I could ever have guessed. I started the blog without any real ideas about what I was doing or where I was going. That hasn’t changed, lol, but my life certainly has! The past year has been very eventful, to say the least. Despite everything, all the treatment I have gone through, the stress and anxiety, occasional terror and constant unwellness (is that a real word??) this past year has NOT been what I would call unhappy. 2007 was probably one of the worst years I have lived through. Robbie being born was the only shining light of happiness that year, for a long, long list of reasons. 2008 most definitely had its bad points 😀 but I made lots of new friends, reaquainted myself with many old ones, watched with great pleasure as my children developed, learned more in my relationship with Ian. Above all, I discovered that I have an inner strength that I never began to suspect was there before.
I have SO much to be grateful for. I am a happy, blessed person with a gorgeous family and many friends all 0ver the world. Who could ask for more?
Here are my stats to date, for anyone who is interested-
Total number of hits- 33,389
Best day- 7th August 2008- 414 hits (doubt I will ever get that again!!)
Top Post- the sodding Drennan’s review, of course!!!!! 😛
Average number of hits per day- 104 overall.
Above all, thank you so much for reading, even if you never comment. I never thought anyone WOULD read, so to have made some really great friends via blogging over the past year has come as a pleasant surprise. I am also very touched by the number of people I went to school with, relatives that I don’t see too often, and people who otherwise I am not in great contact with who I know read on a regular basis.
Hopefully the coming year won’t be as dramatic as this one has been, but don’t let that put you off!!!! 😀
