You registered on WordPress.com 4 years ago!
Thanks for flying with us. Keep up the good blogging!
When they say “time flies” there’s no doubt!
I honestly can’t believe it’s been 4 years!
I created this blog in 2010, but actually became active in 2011,
so in my mind, it’s been 3 years. 🙂
All I really want to say is a BIG “Thanks” to all of YOU!
You who have been with me from the beginning,
joined me in the middle or
who have recently just found me;
You who have been mentors;
You who have encouraged me to continue writing
and lastly, You who have become friends!
It’s amazing meeting people across the country
and around the world!
So “THANK YOU” for stopping by in the midst of your busy life.
I appreciate all of YOU and to celebrate,
I give you a hug!
Oh, alright, here’s a few more.
One can never have enough. 🙂
Wishing you a wonderful day, evening and week
and I hope you continue to enjoy
this little piece of my world.

Thanks, Mary! 🙂
Good for you. And many many more.
And I’m happy to have found you, too! 🙂
I always feel privileged
in your company
Thanks so much, Geo, and I feel the same way in your company!
Congrats! I didn’t think you were here longer than me. Wonders never cease!!! 🙂
When did you join WP, Joe? I thought the timing was about the same for both of us, too! 🙂
A little over three years ago now. I started around July 2011
Well, since I became more active in 2011, our timing is very close, so don’t feel bad. 😀
Happy 4! Its lovely to know that we are all connected here, no matter where in the world we are! Stay awesome! 👍
Aww, thanks, Chatty! And I’m so happy to have had the privilege of reading your amazing poetry…
Well done! Always a pleasure to read.
Thanks, Jean, the feeling is mutual when I’m visiting you, too!
Wow, 4 years already! Congratulations, Lauren! 😀
Yep, it flies! Thanks, Iris, for all your support! I really appreciate it! xx 🙂
You’re most welcome! Xx
That’s wonderful Lauren! I launched here in early 2005 and the time has most certainly gone by quickly…much too quickly! WordPress is an outstanding platform and through all of the website and blog hosts I have been involved with over the past eighteen years I have never known a site as dedicated and innovative as WordPress.
Best wishes for many more fulfilling years here.
Wow, since 2005? That is a long time, Don, but it’s good to hear such praise about WP. It’s been a fun and learning experience…It’s nice to know you, too!
Happy blogiversary, my dear Lauren!!!! Here’s to many many many more of those!!! 🙂

Thanks, Scott, and I can honestly say the same about you! I’m grateful for your friendship and it’s interesting how our story is so similar. 😀
Happy blogiversary, Lauren! Since the very first time we met I knew you had a big heart, and sensed your loyalty right away.
