Happy Anniversary with WordPress.com!
WordPress is so thoughtful….
especially when it asks for its annual 29 bucks, as they put it, to be part of the team. Team this, I always say, as I haul out AmEx.
I think they should at least send fruit.
I can’t imagine life without my blog since it feels like a marriage having gotten used to one another. It puts up with my erratic sleeping patterns, I its low days when no one reads it.
Sigh…we both say, as I, with tunnel vision, scrape together another piece.
When it was sired 5 years ago, I wrote 7 essays a week, like a kid with a new toy. Then changed to 5, taking weekends off though I still write every day. Now I’m thinking 3, and if feel the urge, can always add another, but think, Thingirl might be losing her charm, like Oh Calcutta after 1,382 performances with the same cast.
I’m so grateful to my faithful readers who know who they are, my humility knowing no bounds. I’d rather have 10 people who truly like my writing, than 100 who only stop by if I visit them.
When I participated in Friday Fictioneers and read many of the essays others wrote in 500 words or less, they all came a’callin. Since then, not one ever came again.
But who wants 30 LIKES on their page if they’re not authentic? Not me, that’s for sure.
The blog is a place where I can do what I love most and that’s to write. Oh my, he’s the love of my life, the written word, and for under 30 bucks I am divinely graced.
So here’s to another season its reason being love, and I thank you all for your continued warmth and constancy.
It truly means the world.
