I know, it’s crazy, two posts in two days. But four years ago today I wrote my first post on this blog in English. there had been another first post, almost a year before but that wasn’t the real starting point.
I’ve read a few of my earliest posts this week, and I still like them. I also still struggle with the same things but then I’m slowly making my peace with the fact that I’m me, and that I’ll stay me for most of the rest of my life.
Nonetheless this blog has been a good thing to do, I have gotten to know all sorts of people I wouldn’t have met otherwise, and I’m very grateful for that.
When I started this blog I had no idea who was going to read it. And then there was a time when I started learning more about who’s reading here, and there was a steady stream of comments on my posts. In those days we all didn’t spend time on twitter and facebook and ravelry, and in those days I used to write a lot more comments too. So it’s a bit weird to have gone back to the days where every post just sits there, and then I check my stats, and then I still don’t really know. It’s okay because mostly I’m writing for me.
But for my fourth anniversary it would be really nice if you could just say Hi in the comments so that I know you’re there.
And for my German readers, it’s really alright to write comments in German.
This is my own personal de-lurking day.
Congratulations! Four years of blogging, what a feat that is. I still very much enjoy reading your posts and do feel as if you have grown and reached out to all of your readers. Glad to know you are around. I do hope we will celebrate lots of other anniversaries too.
Hi! Google Reader sends me your posts and I always enjoy them. I don’t remember when I started reading your posts–maybe two years ago? Congratulations on this anniversary!
Hi! How smashing to have made it to four years, and how nice that you have a record of your progress – no matter how long you take to work on things it must be good to see that they haven’t stayed exactly the same.
Herzlichen Glückwunsch zum Bloggeburtstag!
Alles Gute zum Geburtstag, lieber Blog! 🙂
Von mir auch alles Gute zum Bloggeburtstag! Bin in letzter Zeit nicht so zum Lesen gekommen, lese aber immer sehr gerne bei Dir (und das Englische fällt mir zusehends leichter :-))
You know, I’ve known you for years now and have no idea where you are.
