Some people may have noticed, and I did too don't worry, that my blogaversary happened quite recently. I was patiently waiting until a good time to commemorate it. Such as when "Y" came up and I felt like bending the rules once again.
Of all the people who thought I wouldn't last a year, I'm probably the person who thought it the most. Probably. It's been a pretty long journey. It's been mentally challenging sometimes, physically challenging others (yay for interrupted sleeping patterns!) but I've struggled through and I've even been posting once a day for maybe 10-11 months. I'd decide I have too blogaversaries but the dates are too close to eachother.
This isn't exactly how I wanted to commemorate the occasion but I hadn't counted on this whole A-Z thing to last nearly two months. That's how great I am, I can make 26 posts take two months to do. I'm not even sure what I'm going to do when I'm out. For now I have one or two ideas but I guess that's a bridge I'll cross when I come to it.
I actually don't remember how I found most of your blogs either. I find that a bit of a shame because some of you I've managed to become quite close to, or at least accepting of. When I take over the world, you get a few seconds head start.
I've seen bloggers come and I've seen them go, and it's probably not good I have such a detached and old sounding attitude after just a year but the same was probably true after just a year of life. Though there was a time I was actually boisterous and full of life. Hard to believe I know.
I don't think anyone has been here from the start. Though of course no one was here at the start. If you think your blog needs more viewers then the only word of advice I could really give you is to follow blogs and see what happens. People might read you out of courtesy but you can also get genuine readers. I can't even do that myself now thanks to Google. Wankers. They took the follow button out of the shiny orange navbar, but they've also still not fixed the button to manage the blogs you're following. What this effectively means is that you can no longer unfollow blogs. But you still have the 300 blog following limit. I limit I have long since surpassed and been dancing around (I've seen a LOT of people come and go). As such I can't really whore myself out for comments anymore. Ho hum.
Anyway, a nice thank you to anyone who has stuck around, for one day, or for one year. Here's to another one. Though I'll be genuinely surprised if I am still blogging this time next year.
