I'm 1 Year Old...

Well not me, my blog!


It's my first blogversary TODAY, and if you'd have asked me twelve months ago if I'd have done 285 posts , had 40,059 visitors, been given 53 awards and be getting an average of 30 comments per post - I would have say no way!


I started blogging because I knew I was going into hospital to have a knee replacement, and I wanted to document my progress after the operation, which I did. If you want to read the gory details they're all there in the archives.



Of course my blog has become much more than that to me because of all the wonderful people it has enabled me to meet.





So my dear blogging friends have a piece of my Blogversary cake and thanks for visiting me. xx

Take care!

Gledwood said...

Here's to another 40 yrs online... so you can be like those ultra-funky silversurfers ... like MERLE and OLIVE from Down Under... know what I mean...?

When and if I ever get to age 80 I'm going to have my own TV show for other people in my age group (why does everything televisual have to be for the terminally YOUNG?)

plus I want to be a pop star. Like that German Grandad who drest in lederhosen and sung techno tunes with a bunch of alpine milkmaids and smurfs...

Linda said...

A very happy first Blogaversary to you and best wishes for many, many more!

Thank you for the cake, too, I hope you don't mind that I took two slices being that it was calorie-free!
