Five Years and Counting




My, how time does fly! It seems like only yesterday that I created my blog and, with great trepidation, published my first post.

It's been five years since that day, and I am now five years older, wiser, and happier since I became a part of the blogging community.



It's true. You, dear readers, are my friends, and the reason I keep on blogging. Thank you for your continued support, inspiration and enthusiasm. I'll do my best to keep blogging for another five years.



Oh well, you can't please everyone.

From Hermione's Heart

Hermione,

Congratulations and thank you so much for the many years of excellent posts. I look forward to your Top Shelf on Monday, Wednesday Win, Friday Fail, and Complete the Caption during the weekends. Plus, you have so many other fun posts.

I hope that you blog for many more years!

Hug,
joey

Congratulations on five years of blogging, Hermione, and thank you for all the work you have put into your blog! I'm always impressed by your daily blogging routine. Here's to the next five years! :-)

Congratulations, Hermione! I don't think it's an exaggeration to say that the world is a better place for you and your blog - thank you for giving us so much. xxx

PK said...

Happy fifth birthday! I know exactly what you mean, I feel the same way about blogging. Too bad about Dylan - he doesn't know what he's missing!

Hugs,
PK

ricky said...

No, Hermione, Bobby doesn't hate
your blog, he's just envious and
dejected, the poor guy.
Congratulations on your fifth birthday of blogging, sharing your
thoughts and experiences with us.
I am touched by your enthusiasm, humour, openness, and compassion.
You make every contributor feel special, being sincerely interested in what they say.
Well done!
Are you going to get a birthday
spanking today?
Have fun!

Dave Wolfe said...

Ah, don't take Bob seriously, Hermione, he's just a bit tired after catching up on five years of blog entries and disappointed that he's somehow missed making a tune about this cultural phenomenon!

Happy Blogoversary and many spanks, er, thanks, for your wit and insights and stories and an always enjoyable blog!

Hermione said...

Dave - I eagerly await Bob's musical interpretation of my blog archives. If I can understand what he's saying, that is:)

Thanks for stopping by.
