And, so, yesterday's significance slipped by un-noted and unnoticed by Moi. I realized this morning that Reflections has been chatting, sharing, whining, traveling, crying, and laughing for 5 years as of yesterday. Five years is rather significant, eh?
During those five years there was more than one occasion that I felt like this whirlwind.
I have posted 1830 posts in those 5 years. I am thrilled that I have 160 followers that I know of. I believe some of you follow at Feedly and via email, I don't know how many of you there are that do that.
There are over 4800 comments published on Reflections. WOW, I am humbled by your time and thoughts that those 4800 comments represent.
I have 10 permanent pages on Reflections, four of those are Trip maps.
Frequently I am overly verbose. OK, more than frequently. If you stick around long enough to read one of those posts, I thank you, and applaud you. Well done my dear readers.
There are times I fought technology and connectivity to post, I know you have all seen a few of my rants with one of my most fav graphics:
I enjoy sharing my photos of my trips and things I find interesting along the way. I believe you enjoy them as well. Thank you for that.
I write Reflections and the other blogs for me first. Is that a surprise?? I find the process to be creative and fulfilling. Keeps me sane. The fact that so many of you read along and follow is the best frosting in the world! What a blessing that you all care enough to stick with me.
Thank you for reading, thank you for following, thank you for being my friend.
You can read the very first post on Reflections here, a shaky, questioning start.
Thank you all, over and over again.
Now, let's go find out what the next kind of trouble I can get into will be like. Hope to see you here at Reflections for many more days, months, and maybe even years.
