Anniversaries….

There’s lots of things that warrant an anniversary celebration or recognition. The last thing I expected to be celebrating was the anniversary of my blogging with WordPress!

WordPress seemed to think it was worth noting I had been playing about on their platform for 8 years…. I could have sworn I had been here longer than that as it seems like centuries ago that I took this step, but that’s what they are telling me!

 

Wordpress

I know when I started out in blogging land, I was a novice at dealing with anything that required any knowledge of the way websites or blogging platforms worked – it was a whole new way of using language and foreign languages weren’t ever my strong point.  I learned by experimentation – and by not being afraid to make mistakes.  I learned that WordPress had a feel about it that was Mac friendly and that was a definite bonus!

I learned a whole new level of frustration when I couldn’t make things do what I wanted them to do – but I persisted.  I don’t profess to know a lot but I do know enough to be able to help others like myself into this wonderful way of writing, of connecting with people, with self publishing, experimenting with images, recording journeys and learning.

Yes, still learning – its a great way to learn about yourself as well as what the world has to offer.

Here’s to another 8 years!
