Believe it or not, Sibley blogging began a year ago TODAY and it very quickly took on the format of a daily publication.
True, I missed a week-and-a-bit at Christmas, but I’ve nevertheless still managed to clock up 410 postings, plus 206 daily photographs posted on my Window Gazing blog; 24 Likely Stories; and 15 bookish posts on my Ex Libris blog; not to mention giving a helping paw with the 26 posts on buttons blog.
All of which adds up to a grand total of 681 postings in just 365 days and which, between them, have scored in excess of 28,000 hits…
Blimey! I’m exhausted just thinking about it!
My current health problems and the need to find some new paying work may soon result in a somewhat less ambitious publication schedule - perhaps a weekly offering or, at least, not quite as frequently as the daily service to which you’ve all become accustomed. My apologies in advance...
What I really want to do today is express my huge appreciation for your enthusiasm for my blog - your witty and thoughtful comments, your generous sharing of ideas and pictures, your ingenious competition entries and above - or beneath - all your tolerance of quite so many young men in their underpants!
I've really enjoyed the challenge of the past year - not just for the fun of finding funny pictures, recounting (and occasionally inventing) silly stories and logging a few bizarre recollections from My Life to Date, but for the numerous new friends I've made among my regular readers and for the many visits I've taken to other people’s blogs and from which I have derived much amusement and considerable education and intellectual stimulation.
So, thank you all and here’s to the ongoing joys and delights of being citizens of Universal Kingdom of Blog!
