Today is this blog’s 7th anniversary. I started it back on 13th February 2008 with my very first post. It seems so long ago. I suppose it was.
So what have we achieved this year. Well we hit just over 1722 articles on the blog, 101 podcast episodes, 11,497 comments, 4,687 YouTube subscribers, a few appearances on national TV, and over 2000 facebook fans. I am proud to say I made it this far. There have been a few times (after receiving rather nasty comments) that I have thought about giving up. But who am I to give in to those ignoramuses. Life goes on, good and the bad.
Anyway, just think, way back in 2008 during the first few months, I think that only 3 people read the blog. Kim, my Mum, and my Dad (thanks family). It never ceases to amaze me how far it has all come. We have built such a community around this blog, showing how to build a more sustainable lifestyle; step by step, little by little. Hopefully you have all gained something from my ramblings. I realise that I am being a little self-indulgent, but hey, its my party. I’ll thank if I want to 😉
So to all of you who have dropped in over the years, here’s to you. A big hearty thank you from me!
I enjoy your visits and comments. Keep them both coming.
