I missed my Blogiversary!

I know it is traditional to post on your first blogiversary, but apparently I have missed this, it was on 15th February! πŸ˜€

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 thatΒ 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 πŸ˜€ 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

Posts- 233

Comments- 1520

Best day- 7th August 2008- 414 hits (doubt I will ever get that again!!)

Top Post- the sodding Drennan’s review, of course!!!!! πŸ˜›

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!!!! πŸ˜€

    If it makes you feel any better, for my 200th post I accidentally wrote about a sex toy party I attended the other night. Edited to add: NOW WITH PICTURES!!!
    Not my proudest moment.

    I need to get over there and read this NOW! You know me, always a sucker for a story of humiliation and woe… πŸ˜€

    YAY! Well, a couple good things happened to me last year and YOU are one of ’em.

    I really guess I should start paying attention to anniversaries and stats and such things, huh? It just never hits me to even look. But I don’t think my wordpress journal counts since I had that other one for years and years, right? πŸ˜€

    As far as I am concerned, if stats don’t bother you, then why should you look, if you know what I mean! I think it’s easy to obsessive-compulse over these things!

    you’re a little star missy!!!!

    you need to publish this into a book now, then a film, and then retire on the profits!!


    Ha ha, you’re the third person this week to say that to me, but it would be a very slim volume and a very boring read!!! πŸ˜€ Thanks Heidi!
