Thank You for a Fabulous First YearPosted: September 20, 2013
It has been one year and one day since my first blog post, and I just want to take this opportunity to say thank you, thank you, thank you for a fabulous first year. Since that first post on September 19, 2012, I have published 157 posts. I’ve gained 224 new friends and followers and responded to more 2,400 comments. In one year, my blog has had more than 13,600 views. My top day for views (247) was August 27, when I posted a tribute to my dear friend Bear. “Remembering Bear” was my most viewed post, followed by “The Belle of the Fur Ball” and “Wall Art, Literally.”
More visitors (43) clicked the like button for “Sensory Overload” than any other post, followed closely by “Wordless Wednesday: Deep Thoughts” (42) and “Wordless Wednesday: Dawg on a Porch” (40). I have to give special thanks to the two blog hops that have accounted for some of my more popular posts: Wordless Wednesday hosted by BlogPaws and Black and White Sunday hosted by Dachshund Nola, My Life in Blog Years, and You Did What with Your Weiner. Both blog hops have offered excellent opportunities to meet new friends and visit new blogs.
Finally, I want to thank Holly A. Phillips who writes Blogging for Beginners. She taught a blogging class through Louisiana State University Continuing Education. My human mommy attended her class, came home and taught me everything she learned, and the rest, as they say, is history . . . and the future.
