|The Cook is away so I had to make my own cake.|
It doesn't taste as good as hers.
This little blog started,
one year ago today,
as a way to document the garden and my efforts to live more sustainably....but it has become so much more.
It has motivated me, encouraged me and provided rhythm to my days, entertained me, taught me things and sharpened my observation skills, provided an outlet for my creativity, moved me, made me laugh and linked me with an online community of wonderful people with whom to correspond.
It is like having 126 pen pals to write to every day,
and I know there are more who are not on the official list.
Recently I have had several days with well over 200 page hits and 3360 in total for March.
In the twelve months of writing there have been over 18,000 visits.
What I find truly amazing is
the global nature of blogging.
People from 70 different countries have dropped in here....some of them on a regular basis.
Click on the little map in the sidebar to see where the readers are...I don't even know where some of those counties are.
So thank you for visiting and reading and commenting and encouraging me.
Please keep dropping by.
My days would just not be the same without you.
PS: I was thinking about running a competition or offering a give-away like so many bloggers do on their blogaversaries...but you all know that Ali would win, so there didn't seem to be any point.
PPS: By the way Ali, The Cook wants to know when you are coming to pick up your pavlova...it is beginning to smell.
