WordPress just sent me a Happy Anniversary to celebrate my joining them 7 years ago.
Wow. Was it only 7 years ago?
It feels like it’s been a lifetime. And I suppose in some ways it has been. My entire life changed before I started blogging, and it was that very change that prompted this blog.
My coming out was definitely crooked. And not altogether a success. With a super rough beginning.
I needed a place to bleed.
I suppose in some ways I still do.
So, thank you WordPress, for acknowledging my writing by honoring me with the coveted Freshly Pressed award just one month after I started blogging. My little post back in 2012 allowed me to enjoy an insane day of crazy celebrity which I will never forget.
Thank you for giving me a space to share my struggles and my triumphs, my love and my loss, my highs and my lows…pretty much my entire life. And even though much of the original blog has been deleted now, many of the friends I’ve made along the way are still here supporting me and cheering me on through this incredible journey.
Thank you for them. And the new ones who have miraculously found their way to me amidst the heavy fog of bloggers.❤
And thank you for sending me happy birthdays and anniversary greetings every year. 🥂🎂🤗
Thank you for creating this platform that has helped me, and so many others, find solace, peace, kindred spirits and the passionate writer that lives within. It’s a beautiful thing you do here and I am happy to be apart of it in some small way.
I honour you and wish us both many more years to come. Together or apart.
It’s a good thing! 🥂🍾🥰
