3rd Blogging Anniversary

.


14 different profile pics



More than 390 posts



Over 55,000 visits



In excess of a thousand afternoon naps



What have I actually achieved in 3 years of blogging (anniversary back on the 11th of August – forgot about it until today)?



Fame? No.



Fortune? Hahahahahahahahahaha. No.



Glory? You’re kidding, right?



On the plus side I have met some truly wonderful people. Unfortunately with only a tiny handful of exceptions, you all live too far away to visit in person.



Sometimes I wonder if the primary reason I blog is merely looking for some vague verification I exist (outside of Doc Maroon’s head, that is).



OK, I’m fishing for compliments.



Or well-crafted insults.



Leave a comment, a smiley face or a set of weird symbols.

Happy Blogiversary :D

Kate said...

Happy Anniversary! Here's a smiley face :-)

Phil said...

Three years is truly an acheivement to be proud of. To have a son who wants to follow your lead, doing it his way, is even higher praise.

Congratulations.

Namaste.

Annie's Porch said...

Really fun pics, Kim. You are so creative!

Sayre said...

I never remember how I found people out here but I suspect that I found you through another weightloss blog. However it happened, I'm glad it did, because my days are a little richer for reading you.

Happy Blog-a-versary!

Melissa @ Banana Migraine said...

3 years is a great accomplishment!

Mary Witzl said...

Hahahaha -- you have my admiration, Kim, posting that one of you snoozing! And Happy Anniversary from me too. I agree with Phil.

Z said...

No one would call me a tiny handful, and I'm certainly quite far away. Happy anniversary, babycakes xx

The Birdwatcher said...

To the next three years :-)

Kim Ayres said...

FLG - *^$@#! you too ;)

Kate - :-)

Phil and Melissa- You see I'm not so sure about the Achievement / Accomplishment aspect of this. I mean, achieving a super high score in a game usually means you've been wasting too much of your life playing a game...

Annie - just grab a camera and a computer and start playing

Sayre - thank you, that's the kind of compliment I like - I'll allow myself a brief *smug* moment

KarateMom - look like eyes to me...

Mary - I seem to remember Pat saying something similar about the sleeping photo... makes me suspicious

Z - Norfolk's the other side of the country. Oddly enough, East Anglia must be one of the few places in Britain I've never actually been to

Angie - I keep going to visit your site only to find I can't find it. Do you have one? And I like your profile pic - intriguing. Do you mind if I ask what the symbols mean?

Birdwatcher - cheers!

Carole said...

Scared of you!

Kim Ayres said...

It's the tongue touching the nose, isn't it. I don't understand - Meg looks so cute when she does it...

savannah said...

hey, sugar! well done and congratulations - and it's not wasted time, we're all the better for knowing you! ;-) xoxoxox

we've moved scotland up as the next place to visit in europe!!!! and all because of you and your delightful family!

Anonymous said...

debra said...

Kudos to you, oh bearded one, on your momentous day (+ 1) Here is your smiley :-)

Kim Ayres said...

Savannah - I'll get Rogan baking straight away!

Cheche - sarcasm? SARCASM? I think you'll find it's ironic insights

Debra - ah, addressing me by my title rather than my name. Good. Respectful. One day I might ask a favour...

Brave Astronaut said...

Happy Blogiversary. We have all enjoyed watching you get smaller before our very eyes. Keep up the good work! Just don't disappear on us :)

MikeP said...

What a great achievement. Someday I hope to aspire to your astonishing record of afternoon naps.

Jessie said...

I stick around and keep reading your blog cause I think you're crazy and I wonder what you're going to do next :o)

Kim Ayres said...

MikeP - well as someone commented here recently, I look forward to the day when my naps become recreational again :)

Jessie - is this your first comment here? If so, welcome to my ramblings :)

Kanani said...

55,000 views? Well, I hate to admit to having such excess time, but a good portion of those were mine!
xx

Jupiter's Girl said...

I need a single picture of me that's workable. I mean, just one. I am so self-conscious. You're never going to see one of me sleeping, or missing a tooth. I love your creativity, Kim. It's been inspirational. (not for my getting a decent or indecent picture, though) Happy Anniversary...and many more.

Charlie said...

Happy Anniversary to the man with a thousand faces (and bodies). Thanks for sticking with me for the past two years and shooting holes in all of my theories . . . you've made me think, which I think is the purpose of your blog.

Ubergeek said...

מזל טוב! כל הכבוד לך לשלוש שנים בבלוגר :-)

Kim Ayres said...

Kanani - between us we probably count for 50K then...

JG - you need to fly me over to take a bunch of new pics for your portfolio

Charlie - while that's a great compliment, and I appreciate it, I'm wondering where the well-crafted insult it ;)

Ubergeek - I can't find a way to get Google to translate that, so I hope it's complimentary :)
