WPversary

WPversary

It’s my WordPress anniversary today, as I registered my WP account three years ago. My actual blogiversary is in three days though, when I posted my first post. It was an almost hilariously bad snap of coffee. The picture was taken with a compact camera because I didn’t even have a smartphone back then. The post received the astonishing amount of two likes.

Since then, I’ve actually established coffee as my favourite blogging subject and introduced a frequently used coffee tag. I’ve also meanwhile completed two 365 projects, posting a photo a day. I’m on my third 365 project, which might take me more than 365 days to complete, but who says I need to post my 365 posts on 365 consecutive days, right?

    This blog of mine will turn two in December, but there have been several others before it.

    I’m feeling uncertain about the project right now, tonight, but we’ll see …

    1. Thank you! I didn’t imagine I’d become such a dedicated blogger when I set this place up three years ago. Well, not so dedicated recently, but I don’t think of quitting entirely. I’m not worried that you’d stop blogging either, you’ve been around for too long to suddenly disappear! If this current 365 project doesn’t work out, there will be other things.

    1. Thank you a lot, Mabel! Speaking of each other’s blogs, I appreciate your blog because you post such carefully crafted and meaningful articles – that’s what being OCD is good for 😉

      1. I do take time to craft my posts. My OCD sides like this, but another part of my OCD side also always says hurry up and finish writing your post so you can move on to fix other things that need to be OCD in your life 😀

    1. Thanks! I’ve been stalking bloggers on WordPress also for a while before I actually set up an account, so the legitimacy of my blogiversary is disputable, but it’s nice to be reminded of the occasion 🙂

    1. Thanks a lot! It’s nothing to be impressed about when one spawns a post a day, I’m thinking it’s often better to blog less often but meaningfully, like you, for example 😉

      1. I doubt I will ever venture into the post-a-day territory. The April A-Z Challenge just about kills me. I shudder at the thought of doing that times 12 !!
