1st Blog-iversary

Today is my 1st Blog-iversary*, so I thought I shouldn’t let the day go by without a post… (*With thanks to 1 Nothing Please for this expression).

People often ask me what I do now that I’m retired and I think it fair to say (and my wife will bear me out on this one) that Blogging has helped to fill quite a lot of my time.  Fellow bloggers will also know that it’s not just a hobby, but a way of life (well, almost).  E.g. do you find yourself looking for different and interesting subjects to post, or composing the text in your head – maybe as you walk or run along, or just go about your daily business ?  I do.

The stats say that I have done 127 posts and have 55 blogging followers, so I thank you all for following and sticking with me !  I’ve noticed that some bloggers have 1,000’s of followers, but I like to think small is beautiful and that we’re an extended family. 🙂  Indeed I’ve got to know one or two of you quite well over the past 12 months.  (You know who you are !)  I’ve also been amazed at the amount of talent, in particular for art and photography, that there is out there.

Looking forward, (to keep you all interested – I hope), you can expect to see some more pictures of Lake Como, the English Lake District and Scotland as well as Gozo and Locarno later in the year.  (Yes, I bit the bullet and entered the Ascona-Locarno marathon in October).  In between times of course, there will be loads more photos of the Val d’Hérens and Switzerland in general.

It’s before 11am in the morning here now, but I’ll raise a glass later to all you bloggers.  Keep up the fabulous work.  Cheers!

  1. Congratulations on your one year anniversary Mike. It’s an interesting world, blogging, and all of what you say is what I, too, have experienced. It opens your eyes to the life around you so as to share it with others, and it also extends our vision to so many places we may never visit. And most importantly, blogging connects us with people–opens our hearts to others, reminds us of the kindness, talent, and beauty that surrounds us. Many thanks to you~~
