Blogging Anniversaries remind me of birthdays, like how first you are excited with each small milestone, and as the Christmases add up, you even begin to forget… I used to wonder how someone would forget their age or birthday even… Sometimes it’s because you don’t want people making a big deal of it and sometimes, well, it might seem like there is nothing much to celebrate…
WordPress is such a huge CheerLeader, it will remind you of milestones you had no idea you have made in the blogosphere, like how you posted for seven days in a row, or how you have passed such and such views, likes and follows… It will remind you that you registered on WordPress on this date and to keep flying with WordPress…
WordPress celebrates the fact that you registered; whenever someone asks me for blogging advice, I tell them to just start and start now, don’t think so much about it… Oh and join Afrobloggers ^_^
I have been flying with WordPress for the past 8 years, what a journey…
From when I would write 11 posts in a year to now when I clock in 100+ posts averaging 600 words-a-pop in year….
Some of my most viewed posts of all time:
Some interesting search engine results:
I have come to appreciate that something I write today, might actually become more useful to someone tomorrow and this blog in a way is a legacy, chronicling the journey of the future becoming the present and as it becomes the past and the history unfolding before us.
And here is a quick shout out to people who’ve interacted with this tangle of words (which really is the best part about blogging, the endless connections you will make)
Of course first of all shout out to me, for not listening to doubt, one of the voices in my head

Matt from Prolific Potpourri of all things artistic
Diana the 🐴🐎horse whisperer over at My Life And Horse Stories
