Happy Blogiversary To Me!

friends – countless

Watching blogging and social media grow into the veritable monster it has become has been very entertaining, and quite an eye-opener for me.
I never dreamed when I started blogging that I would actually make friends in real life with the people whose blogs I was reading! I also found that the people I met are almost all a lot like they are on their blogs, although some are a lot shorter than I imagined.
Some have deeper voices than the ones I heard in my head. Some have children. Some are no longer blogging. Many are like me.
See, I don’t mingle, I’m not one of those people who talk to strangers in bank queues.Β And these people I have gotten to know, they also battle to make small talk with people they don’t know, and actually getting to know someone on the internet by reading their blog means I can walk into a blogger meetup and not feel like I’m amongst strangers!

πŸ˜€

I have tried and failed to explain to non-bloggers how blogging has impacted my life, but unless someone actually has a blog its very hard to put into words why I would want to share so much of my life with innumerable strangers. I blog to support other parents raising ADHD children. I blog to occasionally explore my fiction writing ability. I blog to think things through. I blog about my loves. I blog about my pet peeves. I met my husband through my blog. Through social media I have been able to turn a love of cupcakes and a passion for weddings into business ventures.

I am still my most important reader.Β And that said- without you, oh ever loyal bunnies of mine- this blog would have fizzled and died a long long time ago. Thank you for reading my blog. Thank you for leaving your comments on my blog. And if you’ve been lurking- today’s the day you say hello!

  1. Congrats on your blogiversary. Yours was the first quality ADHD mommy blog that I read and I don’t know how I would have coped without it. I have loved watching you fall in love and grow these past years.
    You are definitely a rock star. I can barely keep up with 2 blogs and you have 7!

  4. Happy blogging birthday! Six is a long time.

    I just wrote a post about what blogging means to me too. It’s difficult for non-bloggers to understand what a big part of my life blogging has become.

    I love your about me. I’m saving up 4 my 4th tatoo (when did they become so expensive?).
    I’m not a mom, but have an ADHD brother, sister-in-law and both their daughters! I start my day with the girls with a “have you taken your pilletjie?” otherwise I know I’ll be banging my head against the wall within 5 min. πŸ™‚

  6. Blogging is definitely weird for those who don’t get it. I didn’t “get it” until I was convinced by Tweeps on Twitter that I needed to do it. What an amazing world blogging and twitter has opened up for me. And as you say, the friends that we make along the way. I’m glad I met you πŸ˜€
