Did You Say One Year?

Ah, I am a year old.  No, let me qualify that. WordPress says this  blog  has just celebrated its first birthday without me in it.  Last March 23, I received  another familiar notification from WordPress that says:

anniversary-2xHappy Anniversary with WordPress.com!

You registered on WordPress.com one year ago.

Thanks for flying with us. Keep up the good blogging.

I am amazed.  A year is too short really. I started  this blog with one lone entry  a year ago just so I won’t have to rush making another one when my main blog has used up its allowed limit. I changed the theme and shortened each blog post but it is always accompanied  by photos. It was followed by a single post last May 01. It was six months later  when I finally customized it. I thought several times of changing the theme but I love its appearance and the header is just as lovely as the theme I use on my main blog.  I wanted a clean and uncluttered look.
Unlike when I was just starting with Dreams and Escapes (that was a hard start really because you never knew if somebody read your posts), this has earned 276 comments, 36 followers and a total of 3,313 hits. When you’re just starting with a new blog,  the stats counts a lot because it means they’re visiting  it.
To my new followers here and  to those who  leave  “comments” and “like” on some posts, thank you so much.

And here I thought it would be easy to create and start another blog. Starting all over again but that is the challenge of blogging. This is a continuation of my other blog called Dreams and Escapes. It is still a work in progress...
