One Year Anniversary with WP

I didn’t remember that but today is my Blog’s one-year Anniversary! Thanks WP for letting me know.

This is also my 400th post!

Thank you to the WP bloggers community and to WP staff, for making this year a very special one.

Blogging has been a pleasant discovery. I came here to share my thoughts and learn to write better. I followed excellent blogging, writing and photography courses, and learnt how to blog and to improve the looks and structure of my blog.

Totally out of my first script, I have also included photography in the blog, which became a bigger part of the blog than writing.

I met wonderful people, I made friends, I met them in person, and all of them showed me that blogging happens through connections and regular interactions.

Blogging is all about being part of an inspiring and encouraging community! Here we discover new ideas, learn about other cultures and ways of thinking, and in turn, expand our minds and knowledge, and learn more about ourselves, in a respectful environment.

Here I dare to experiment, and to share my learnings, being sure to get support and criticism, which helps me to grow and become a better blogger.

I love this community and I am proud to be a member of WP. Your support to my blog, through your visits and comments, make me want to excel and do more for you. The ever friendly Happy Engineers and editors also make this experience worthwhile.

There is no better place to be than at WP with you.

Heartfelt thanks to all of you for a wonderful year!

  1. Congratulations Lucile, hard to believe you have only been doing this for one year, and happy to be part of your community and to be one of those lucky enough to have met you in person! Here’s to the next year!


  2. Happy Anniversary Lucile. Where does the time go? It seems like we just met. Here’s to many more years my friend. ❤


    1. Thank you, Sally. Even I was surprised. Joining all the courses led to publishing so many posts. But I just realized that I had exported posts from my first blog at Blogger to my new blog at WP. And I guess it is not excluding the guests’ posts.
      I am so happy you liked the image. I though it had to be this one.


  3. Congratulations My Queen and Ninja-Lu. I am so unbelievably happy that we found each other here. Your posts and your comments and all of our interactions light up my day, make me think, make me amazed and often make me laugh. Bravo to you xox.


    1. Heartfelt Thanks, my Friend, and my Master, Empress, Queen and Ninja of Macro, Drama, Dark and LR! (bowing with respect and pride)
      Stop making me cry! I am touched by your words.
      I totally share this happiness. I never thought I could ever make friends here and you proved my theory wrong. I cherish our connection and love our interactions.
      I learn so much from you and feel privileged to deserve your friendship.
      Thank you lovely!

    1. Thanks Badfish! 400th was madness. It happened without awareness….joining all these courses and posting, plus what you do as you wish, plus guest posts, brought me here. I didn’t count it either until I got the message!!
