Early this morning I received a message from WordPress with their familiar logo. Thanks a lot WordPress for this lovely message:
You registered on WordPress.com 6 years ago!
Thanks for flying with us. Keep up the good blogging!
Maybe, I ought to congratulate myself for maintaining a blog this long, sharing life’s journeys – the happy moments, the pains that a heart sometimes feels, self discovery and the joy that one feels when other bloggers and followers say that they are somehow inspired by this blog.
I remember the first time I registered a blog here choosing the Spring Loaded theme but I didn’t even know how to get about it and customize my blog. Oh yes, of course, I posted a single blog entry that remained just a single post for so long, almost a year in fact before I felt brave enough to share my thoughts with the world at large. I used to blog at Multiply and it was confined to about a hundred close friends, most of whom I know personally and some online friends I met at the site. For so long, I’ve been using the Misty Look theme and learned to customize and personalize it a little. I love its clean lines and easy to read font. And here’s one of the very first posts I did at WordPress. It’s about a book by one of my favorite authors, Rod McKuen.
SEASONS IN THE SUN
– I’ll Catch The Sun
Was your day
filled with wanting
or the needlepoint
of knowing that I waited
Rod McKuen! he still could turn my days into sunshine and makes me appreciate the times that certain rain must fall.
