Happy 1st blog year



Greetings! My blog turned one year old today! I started writing on October 10, 2016 at 10 a.m. and published my first post that afternoon.

It's been a fun journey for me to write, post words and pictures, and play with Blogger functions. So far the best part is to connect with other bloggers and to receive readers' comments. You have been FANTASTIC! Thank you all for your support and virtual friendships.

Here are some fun facts about my blog as of October 4, 2017:
- 19 posts published in 2016
- 75 posts published in 2017
- Post with the highest number of comments: Fall fun list
- 1st post to receive a comment: Prince Edward Island
- 1st link up: Sentence a day, organized by sweet friend Leslie

I enjoy exploring my home city, exploring the world, and practicing healthy living so you'll see more of my stories on these topics in the coming days.

I've scheduled this post before going to Ireland. My plan for next week after I return is to write about my first trip to Ireland with pictures.

What fun activities did you enjoy this week? Please share.

    Like you, I have found one of the most wonderful aspects of blogging to be the people that read, comment and follow along. Several have become 'real' friends, a most wonderful and unexpected benefit.

    May your next 12 months be as fun as your first!
