Yesterday I celebrated my 150th post!!. Also, I am celebrating another milestone in viewership total. It could be the same person reading the posts twice or three times, but little bits do add up. The blog has been translated to French, Chinese or Japanese and Spanish. Even though my readers like to keep a very low profile when it comes to opining, I know you are there reading very quietly. Thank you very much for that. I would like to publicly express my appreciation for all of you and may the posting, and reading continue until that time, don’t know when, that the circle completes.
Even though the muses decided to definitely stay somewhere in the South or the Caribbean, I feel motivated and inspired to write something five days a week. Sometimes it is easier than others, but I know someone is going to be reading.
The whole thing about this blog started because of my daughter. She started a blog, a very good one may I add, and one day, out of boredom and restlessness, because the house had not sold, my plans were up in limbo land, and Milagros already had introduced me to Facebook, I felt I needed to see how far I could take the technological challenge I imposed on myself. And ta ta, here we are today. Then the issue of my cheap, chic camera (ccc)waltzed into my life, and now I have learned so much on how to take better pictures or edit the ones I have taken, that when you add all the ingredients together, I have become a better and more knowledgeable person because I chose to challenge myself and thanks to the motivation of my daughter. Merci beaucoup, mon cherie.
Let me share the experience of my first posting. I wrote the whole posting on the title section because I didn’t know what I was doing. Then on the second one, I started to look at the screen and started clicking and tabbing on things, then added my first picture the day after Thanksgiving with a picture of some biscuits, and as they say…the rest is history.
Thank y’all, as they say on this neck of the woods, and may we continue the virtual relationship for many more postings into infinity and beyond. I must acknowledge my appreciation to WordPress for allowing me to become a better writer and for having given me this tremendous opportunity to communicate with all of you.
So it was today…17 May, 2011…a day of looking back at the birth of this blog.
Your Happy Contessa
