Hey, it’s my 1-year WordPress Anniversary!! I knew I started last April, but didn’t know the date off-hand (numbers not being my strong suit per usual). I wanted to check and when I looked and saw I rolled out my first post one year ago, well I just couldn’t let the moment pass without saying a few words.
First. Thank you. Thank you for reading, thank you for liking, thank you for commenting. The people make WordPress. The people have offered delights. I feel connected to you.
This is my first blog. I really didn’t know what to expect. I think, as is true for a lot of us, about various matters, I worried about the wrong things. It’s different than I thought it would be. Mastering the mechanics behind the scenes – especially when WordPress changes ‘em around from time to time, is more important than I’d have guessed. Part of the reason, in addition to not being unhappy with it, that I haven’t changed the blog’s “theme” (i.e., the look of the blog) – which I chose utterly randomly – is that I’m afraid what might happen! I don’t want to lose features I enjoy, such as allowing readers to “like” comments made by others. Or what if I couldn’t make “Short Thoughts” have that nice blue background?!
I have tremendously enjoyed writing this blog. I was ready for it, you know? At the right point in my life. I sort of knew I’d make it to a year – I had no doubt I had enough to say to get that far. I was tired of waiting – waiting on some nonexistent opportunity to allow me to do exactly what I’m doing here.
The photo which is the header and avatar for my blog is also a year old. I still like it, so it will stay. Still, I’d like to share something current, so I think I’ll mark this occasion of my anniversary by revealing…. my other eye!
