On April 28th 2005 - ten years ago Tuesday - I wrote my very first entry in The Journey
If you are interested in reading those first historic words you can find them HERE.
I had intended in posting this "anniversary post" on Tuesday (well I had planned to have it queued up to go for Tuesday - but as fate would have it - there were other pressing matters on my mind)
A few facts about The Journey.......
In ten years:
* I have written 2,820 posts. Over the ten years I have only missed 830 days.....not bad considering there are 3650 days in 10 years.
* I have published 8895 comments (some didn't make the cut)
* I have 211 followers
* I have had a grand total of 259,399 visitors from the States
67,529 visitors from Canada
44,224 visitors from Great Britain
19,410 visitors from Germany
12,034 visitors from France
9,994 visitors from Australia
9,274 visitors from Russia
3,446 visitors from the Netherlands
1,686 visitors from China
985 visitors from Denmark
I guess I could do the tedious work of figuring out how many words I have spewed forth in the 10 years - but seriously!!! not important.
There has been much laughter, sadness, joy, more than a few rants ....... there have been feeble attempts at educating / passing along knowledge (who did I think I was??!!) shared love and hate and anger............ I have written mostly for me.... my thoughts ... my knee jerk reactions .... my angst and my professed love ........ but mostly everything that has been recorded here is ME - thoughts from my heart........ written for me.
The days and years stretch before me....... what will be written here in the next 10 years - shrug - who knows. I only know that there will be words written here..... because that is who I am........... and you are all most welcome to continue The Journey with me.
Here's to 10 years ............
