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)))
