Mumbles … Five Years

I got a notification from WordPress yesterday… I have had my blog for five years now.  My how time flies when you are having fun.  But don’t get too excited, I would say I have only truly been blogging for closer to two years.  Let’s take a look at some of my past words and facts. (I know how boring… but maybe somebody might like to see what I have done.)

I started back in August of 2013 (hence the 5 years… LOL)  and that first year I only had 3 posts this being my first one.  I didn’t make it back until August of 2014 and sporadically stayed with it until November when I did one of my hardest posts. 2015 I was in the groove enough I almost hit every month, but still very few posts.  This is one of my early depression blogs .

Then we reached 2016, that is when something clicked.  In March I started to write more. I dealt with not one but two friends in crisis.  By the end of that summer I discovered the daily prompts and that kept me here most days.  And a Radical Idea had me posting about my happiness for 100 days.  I also tried to find the wonder of the holidays with my 12 Days of Christmas.

2017 I was bound and determined to find a way to be Happy and Grateful every single day.  And I may have been late a few times but I got through that year-long challenge.  I also continued with the daily prompts and from March through November I shared some of my photos with Monochrome Monday.

Now we are in 2018 and although WordPress has dropped its daily prompt I still am challenged by Fandango’s One-Word Challenge (FOWC) every day.  I have embraced an occasional blog with my Mumbles… posts.  And I am once in a while doing some fiction posts, most often limited to 100 words.

I sit one person away from 500 followers.  I figure 100 per year average is not bad.  I get likes on my posts and wonderful comments from people I consider friends.  I have 1,212 posts, over 21,700 views and more than 10,700 visitors.  For those of you who made it this far I will give you the answer to this question.  Too wise you are, too wise you’ll be, I see you are, too wise for me. 🙂

Have a good day/night… thanks for sticking with me.  I really hope all these links work! Now to start the next 5 years!  (((HUGS)))

  1. Thanks for the answer to the letter thingie that had me completely stumped. And also thanks for the shoutout about my one-word challenge (aka, FOWC). I’m pleased to have been able to take the place of the now defunct WordPress daily prompt for you.

    And finally, congrats on five years of this blog. That’s definitely an accomplishment to be proud of.

    1. Thank you Fandango! I am especially proud of the last two years where I have really stuck with it. It has introduced me to some wonderfully creative and intelligent people, yourself included.
