WordPress forgot to send a note- after 6 years of blogging. How could they?

I thought it was automatic.  An electronic note to me.  Six years is a long time.  Today’s post is #2132.

Six years ago today I started blogging at wordpress.  I thought at least they would send a notice… Congrats on Six Years of Blogging. I’ve seen badges on other blogs for years of blogging accomplished.

I told my granddaughter it was my blogaversary and she said, “What’s that?”

No drum roll, no brass band, waaaaah waaaah waaaaaah, whine, whine, whine,

No one really cares, just me.

This was the first photo I blogged on July 14, 2009.

Murphy passed away and Michael is going to be ten in August.



For today’s 2015 photo gallery I’m posting the grandchildren feeling exhilarated at Kennywood

And a silhouette of the Phantom’s Revenge



P.s. 11th hour update.  Thanks WP

  1. Of course, congrats on 6 years! Has is been that long? i think I’ve been in for the long haul. I still look forward to your daily posts!

  2. Congratulations on six years – so you think you may stick with it? πŸ˜‰

    Just my observations of your first picture – although Michael appears to be receiving the ‘time out’ time, Murphy is showing some signs of complicity in the crime.

  3. Loved the Michael – Murphy photo. Six years seems to have passed by so quickly. We are looking forward to another 6 !

  4. It’s been a delight, your photos have been a joy. I often see unusual things and wonder what you’d do with it? . Thanks for being such bright spot !

  5. I’ve told you this many times – your email/blog is what I look forward to every day. I love the family photos – its fun to see the kids grow up. Keep up the good work!

  6. I can’t believe it has been six years! Congratulations! I look forward to your blog every morning! It is a real day brightener! πŸ“· πŸ˜€πŸ†πŸ˜€

  7. Happy 6th Blogaversary! Your first post of Michael and Murphy has always been one of my favorite photos. It was an auspicious beginning to a creative and original blog.

  8. Congratulations, Ruth! You set quite a standard with that inaugural photo, one that most would find hard to achieve. You, though, have continued to impress and delight us with your keen eye and photographic skills. Can’t wait to see what you’ll be showing us in the next 6 years.

    • So nice to read your lovely comment on the blog today. I appreciate your positive encouragement., John. Can’t wait to purchase your cookbook for myself and all my friends. Thanks again for the retirement wishes, too. An unexpected delight to receive real mail!

  9. You can just feel the energy in your grandkids. Wonderful photos. And congratulations. I’m glad you are blogging. I so enjoy your photography. πŸ˜€

    • Thanks Cee. I enjoy your photography, too, and you inspire a whole community of bloggers to be creative when you put out your challenges, I appreciate your visit and kind words.

  10. Yay Ruth, congratulations and well done, so pleased WP came to the party at last! Your great photos grabbed me when I first started and you will always be such an inspiration to me, thank you so much Ruth. What a fabulous diary you have put together of your gorgeous growing ever so quickly grandchildren!

  11. Hello Ruth, thanks for checking into my blog AND congrats on the 6th WP anniversary!
    I’ve been meaning to post more often on WP but I’m beginning to see signs that web journaling is starting to wane in turn for sites like Tumblr, Instagram, etc. More visual content, less words. I’ll be posting on WP but more of sharing stories that I see on the web.
    Sharing personal experiences in a word format is (strangely) becoming time consuming.
    I feel I can translate a personal experience in a visual sense quicker than writing it all out.
    Geez.. I feel like I’m stuck in the expediency of life and working to balance it all out.

  12. See, they didn’t forget about you! πŸ™‚ 6 years of blogging is fantastic! I have enjoyed coming along for the ride for a few of them. πŸ™‚

  13. CONGRATULATIONS RUTHIE Thank you for making my life so much richer. I love seeing the world through your lens

  14. Six??? I’m a couple of months away from 4. πŸ™‚ Do you still do Flat Ruthie posts? She’s still sitting in our study upstairs. Looking a little dusty, I have to admit πŸ™
    Nice photos of the gang, and you know they love you, whether you blog or not πŸ™‚

Thanks for your visit. It's always good to hear you stopped by.
