two years old . . .
So as of Saturday, the 23rd of February, this blog turned two! Yep, been going for twenty-four months now, the view count is above 13,560 with visitors from over ninety countries.
Surprisingly, the fourth highest viewing country in 2012 was. . . (drumroll). . . Latvia! Go figure!
This morning, I received a sweet note from a reader saying that she had made tarts with her grandson (see “little hearts” post) and was reading “Gift from the Sea” by Anne Morrow Lindbergh (see post.) Sharing mutual experiences from the blog is so meaningful for me and I thank you for reading and writing to me about it.
Robert de Niro didn’t win the Best Supporting Actor Oscar last night, (see “Waking Up”) but Ben Affleck won for “Argo” as Best Picture, which I enjoyed seeing. From last night’s awards, the movie industry worldwide seems to be alive and well. Maybe we’re not going to hell in a handbasket after all, although you wouldn’t know otherwise from the antics of politicians in Washington. Or from reading about scuttlebutt at the Vatican, for that matter.
So, it’s a beginning of year three for the blog. A toddler in writing for me. Thank you for following it and for letting me know that you enjoy reading it. I’m surprised that the blog seems to have taken on a life of its own by now. And I’m interested, as much as you, to see what will come next. Thank you.
Hooray for you! And a very happy birthday to your globe-trotting toddler! : )
Jabbow, Cakkie! 🙂
Congratulations! How fabulous to have such a fantastic following after only two years! That says a lot about your blog. It is worthwhile, wise and witty.
I am so glad I found it.
Thanks so much! I appreciate your comments and have a sense of wonder myself about the global spread of the countries from which viewers ping in sometimes. The internet has transformed how we may speak and be heard. Unlike books, a blog offers up instant inter-relatedness between the reader and writer. Such a privilege!
