8 years?????!!!!!

Where have they gone???!!!

Found this little message in my inbox this morning.

Happy Anniversary with WordPress.com!
You registered on WordPress.com 8 years ago.
Thanks for flying with us. Keep up the good blogging.
It’s all down to you – my followers and visitors .. if it hadn’t been for all of you – there wouldn’t be anything of me either here on WordPress.
All the friends I have made through the years … some of you have become closer than others, but all of you have an important place in my world.
And thanks a million for accepting my Swinglish … sometimes is really rough!!! I can’t promise it will become any better.
I started my blog because it was supposed to be about food and recipes, but I’m so much more … and there are so many fantastic food blogs out there … so it resulted in that my blog became just like me – all over the place and maybe that has played against me because the advice we get as blogger is to stick to what we are best on. Either I’m not really good on anything or I’m good on everything *laughing.
I know that I’m not very good at paying back visits to you, but it all has to do with my “sorry ass” and my problems to sit for a longer time.
Somebody has said that it takes a long time to become young – so I see myself as a young blogger today … both at heart and soul … the body is a totally different matter, but it’s still hanging in there.
So here is to all of us … let’s start another flying and exciting 8 years together!!!!!

  1. I have enjoyed your “all over the place” blog over the years Viveka. Very much !
    I checked out a few stats on my Photography blog and it’s been a little over 8 years for me and thanks to this post I have just seen that I have published exactly 600 photos on there at time of writing this. So a double thank you

  2. Happy Blogiversary Vivi. It is wonderful you are still here. I started before you, but am still plodding along. I too write about anything and everything and throw in a recipe too.

    • Jo, yes … you are one of my oldest followers. So glad you belong to my world. I remember that you before nearly add a recipe per day. And I’m so glad and thankful for that you visit me now and then, always nice to get your glad cheers. *smile Good luck with your world.

    • Dave, thank you so much … I’m surprised myself that I have been doing it for 8 years, but it’s not like I post every day all the time. It’s you and the others that motivates me. Thank you for the support.

  3. Congratulations-eight years is amazing! And I’m like you-though some blogs that ‘specialise’ are popular, I post about anything and everything?

    • Andy, thank you so much. Yes, 8 years is a long time .. and many posts. But it keeps my brain busy and I always meet new interesting people. I’m glad that I’m not the only member in the “all over the place” club. Welcome. *laughing

  4. 🙂 Congratulations, dear Wivi!
    8 Years! Long time. I’m so happy you and I met through blogging and I can’t wait to see you here in June!
    Keep up the good work – I always enjoy looking at your spectacular photos and the angles you look at life.
    Big hugs and cheers to you!
    xo 🙂

    • Dia, ThAaAaaAaaaanks! Yes, if it hadn’t been for our blogs we would never have our friendship. I’m also looking forward to spending some time with you in June. It’s 2 years since our last day out, what a fantastic day that was. Thank you so much for your kind words regarding my blog, means a lot to me. But you’re very good at it yourself.

    • Thank you, Carol … neither did I … sometimes I really love it … and sometimes it is less fun, just like a marriage (I only guess) – Congratulations to you too. *smile
