Blogging 5 Years

This year I have been blogging 5 years and that is a long time to earn my blogging stripes, I am pretty sure I should be a Dame of Blogging or be made a Blogging laureate or blogging advisor to the stars. I would like to be knighted by the Queen and have those little cucumber sandwiches and have a giggle with Prince Philip ( Did you know he once spoke to my mum ) so you see I feel connected to the Royal family.

I have been to all sorts of blogging events up and down the land which have been mainly fun , easy year I hardly went to any , I have been recovering from depression and it is my blogging that has helped me do that ( I won't get over the depression ) but the clem back from the blips are easier. I am grateful for the opportunities I have had , the opportunities I will have and never ever jealous of what I  don't have as I do like to pay my way in life . For being a blogging isn't a genies lamp to wish up what ever I want it is so much more than that I blog off the cuff what I enjoy and I believe that comes across.

Tonight I have watched Groundhog day and blogging can feel a bit like that , you keep going to get the reception you want and life isn't always like that . I take the rough with the smooth nowadays and I embrace my maverick ways as I type this from my doing room table there is a teddy bear to the left of me and a storm troopers helmet to the right.

What I take most from blogging is friendship.

I don't need fancy press trips though I did get offered one to South Africa but it was South Africa or paying my mortgage and I am not a freelance blogger. I would love to do this full time and be a blogger for hire roaming the land on my bicycle with a basket taking pictures.

Blogging may involve in different way but this is the medium I stay in as I don't want to be like jam and spread myself too thin.

I think my blogging birthday is in April I haven't got a giveaway planned or anything * blows up balloons and lets off party poppers.

I am highly unorganised  I mean I have only just found the Nintendo DS after 4 years SO Who knows where the blog posts I have planned are hiding , probably down the back of the sofa. I am the kamikaze blogger with cats for hire ....

What will the next 5 years bring ?

Who knows let's find out.


  1. Wow! Go you! 5 years blogging is impressive. I've been blogging just over 3 years and I can't imagine not blogging now. Here's to many more years for you x

  2. Happy 5th Birthday to your blog. Sends cake and good wishes for the next five years and beyond x
