8 year Blogiversary

On September 18 I passed the 8 year mark for blogging! As you can see I totally missed it. I’ve only ever ‘celebrated’ it one other time in those 8 years and that was in 2009 with this post for my 5th blogiversary (which was also written late!). So happy 8 years blogging to me!

I have considered taking my blog in a specific direction whether it be all serious, all art or all op shopping but in the end it just doesn’t feel right. I don’t think that blogging any differently to how I have been for the last 8 years is going to stick. I’ve tried to start three other blogs in that that time to talk specifically about a topic (one for my old shop Polyclarific, one for creativity and a private one about my spiritual journey). None of them really stuck. I don’t think it has to do with an ability to write or take photos so much as the time to dedicate to a niche blog.

So, I will stick with the same old formula of blogging for fun and blogging about whatever takes my fancy. I purposely do not have ads on the sidebar (apart from a link to my shops) as I don’t really see my blog as a way to make money.

As I did on my 5 year blogiversary I will list the stats for the last 8 years. So, here they are!

I’m sure thats not really that impressive over 8 years but its a good thing that I’m not out to impress anyone.

Thank you if you do read my blog, its just there for me to keep a record and share a few things. If you do read regularly I’m doing a little roll call below because I’m curious as to who is reading. If you don’t mind popping by in the comments below I’d love to hear from you.

    Happy 8th Blogiversary! That’s an impressive feat. Well done.

    Blogs on a variety of topics are always the best, I reckon, although I loved your spiritual journey one, too.
