I have missed my birthday.
My second blogging birthday to be exact. It was on the 6th February.
Since I began I have received 48,464 hits: some of them, hopefully, have been returning visitors but according to the stats there are many, many people who have visited just once, usually to find out about Leopard Geckos, much to my surprise. If you had asked me which would have been the most popular tag, it would not have been that one.
It seemed such a strange conceit, to put my thoughts ‘out there’ and think that even one person might pop round to read them. As many of us have realised, this blogging habit brings us so much more than we could ever have expected or hoped for, most exciting of all, the ability to read about others’ lives and to make friends.
To celebrate I will put up a widget of my most popular posts in case anyone has missed them, or would like to revisit them.
I must apologise for the gaps in my posting history over the last two years, sometimes life has just got on top of me and I have ‘dried up’ or not felt I had anything worth posting about. Mind you, I never feel I have anything worth reading anyway, just things that I want to record.
It seems extraordinary that so many posts have been read: now I am going also to add a countdown to 50,000: numbers that I never, ever dreamed of.
So, a very big
to all those who have kept looking-in despite the arid patches.
Good health and happiness to you all:)
