I realized last week that I have been writing on this space for two years now. My very first post was written on March 1st, 2010 and at the time I wasn’t sure that I would last writing on here for very long and so I kept it pretty private for some time. Now, I have written over 300 posts. I love writing on here and it is somewhat of a journal of our lives but with things like art and recipes that I would be unlikely to include in a journal.
I checked my dashboard for stats and here are some:
Busiest day: 523 on December 16th, 2011- I’d like to think that is because it was my birthday but I think everyone just wanted to see pictures of Kathleen.
Comments: 1,434 (but 233 of those are my responses)
Most Comments: Jamie
Followers: Apparently, I have 62? I didn’t think that many people read my blog!
Most Pinned to Pinterest Post: Wipe Solution
Most Spammed Post: Natal Day & Honey Almond Cake
Most Google searched post: Chicken Enchilada Casserole with my posts on advent and various art being discovered on google search.
Some of the random searches that have lead to my blog:
“why do ear wings be on my washing” which led to my post on housekeeping
“let air out of aunt’s tire” and I would like to note that I have never let the air out of my aunt’s tires much less blogged about it.
And I am not sure how to feel about these searches: “huge belly” and “strange pregnancy photos”
Anyways, random blog stats aside, it seems like a lot of water has gone under the bridge in the last two years, multiple moves to different provinces , babies being born, and lots of other changes. In many ways, I don’t feel like the same person who wrote those first posts; the way I think about life has expanded several times and yet the core of who I am hasn’t really changed.
So whether you have been reading since I began writing or just started and if you are one of the “62” 🙂 or just read every so often (or almost never, in which case, you likely aren’t reading this), thanks for reading and sharing in this journey with me. And if you feel like commenting in celebration of two years, tell me what your favorite post has been!
Oh this made me chuckle:) Thanks for that:)Um, I liked your vulnerable post on ppd and the fun fairy post…there are so many. I just think you are very kind and I like reading about what kind people do in their lives:)
Happy Bloggy Birthday!
i like reading about when you take a break, but not a break, and go and sit at a coffee shop and journal and then have fun taking sunday scavenger hunt pictures. but that is just the first one that is popping in my head. i find all of your posts so interesting. I really like hearing about your life and seeing your little ones and i loved the rennovation pics of your beautiful house! and ps. i am sad that I didn’t win most comments! hahha i thought for sure i would! but great job to jamie! she’s very good at blog comments!EB
Happy Blogirthday. Or something like that. I’m glad to have a little window into your life and thoughts, and I love the connection that we can keep via blogging, even while living so far away. My favourite posts are always the confessional types. Love those 🙂
Most comments! Wow, yay me!
And I think I like best when you blog about motherhood… any aspect of it, really.
happy bloggybirthday!! i rarely comment, but i love to read what you write – lets me imagine that we are still living right next to each other for a few moments.
so thankful for you and the blessing you are in my life.
