It’s a Blogging Anniversary….but not mine!!

We all know that blogging is hard. And if you don’t yet, you only have to read this week’s absolutely amazing post about that subject by the wonderful Arthifis to see what I mean. (Just press on the link…come on you know you want to). I have been blogging for almost two years now (Yes time does fly when you are having fun), and I have seen many new bloggers come, but sadly also go. Blogging takes commitment, it takes time, and it takes energy. But the rewards…oh the rewards they are so amazing, I can’t even describe them.  And one of the best rewards, if not the best award is meeting all kinds of wonderful people on this journey. But sometimes, just sometimes…you meet someone in this community that has something special, that is just even more extraordinary than everyone else (and trust me there are many individuals like that here). But….today…I want this post to be about someone that I not only think is an amazing blogger, but also someone that should begin to realise by now that she is a person that inspires people here. It’s also someone who today celebrates her blogging anniversary of one year. I’m talking of course about *drumroll please* ….the wonderful Irina.

Oh come on Irina, you knew  I would do something like this right??

Now….the first thing you might notice right now is the fact that this post is published at the exact moment the clock strikes midnight in Irina’s country. In other words the exact moment when sunday starts for her, and the day her blog turns one year old. (That is I hope I did my research correctly, no pressure……). But that is just a technicality. Irina, this is my way to show how much I look up to you, but most importantly how greatly I value your friendship. When I was on my hiatus I at times was feeling very down and sad. But the thing that always brought a smile to me, was just a small word of encouragement from you on Twitter saying something like happy sunday, or just checking in on how I was doing. See my point? That is the kind of person Irina is, always there for others, and always helping out. Today though: we should be there for her: let’s all band together here and show her how much we appreciate her. Leave a comment on this post to wish her well, congratulate her or whatever else you want to say. And not only that: let’s all head over to her blog, leave likes, and in short let us all totally explode her blog stats to give her the best day ever!

No need to start blushing, everything I said here is true!

On the small chance that you might not have yet discovered her blog, go there now, and see what I am talking about. It’s good isn’t it? Of course it go ahead and follow! Irina on a personal note I truly want to thank you for all that you have done for me, and for being such an amazing friend. The blog you have is something to be enormously proud of and I pretty much know right now that next year by this time: you will have reached 2000 followers. Don’t believe me? Want to place a small bet on it? Seriously though: I hope you will continue to have as much fun writing all those great posts, as I have when reading them. I was really worried I would not be able to complete this post as since friday evening I had enormous WordPress issues that eventually turned out to be Ipad issues. Luckily though I was able to come back just in time. I hope you are going to enjoy this day, because you really should. Be proud of all that you have achieved. I know I am totally proud of you! To close this off: this is me taking a deep bow and saying: Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!!

    1. Haha…well, I’m sure I speak for Karandi as well when I say the feeling is entirely mutual. You have yourself a great anniversary and a very happy sunday: enjoy it! 😊

    1. It really is an amazing blog. I love the way how she writes, It’s always very engaging and there are so many different posts. And publishing every day though? That’s something I could never accomplish, no matter how hard I would try 😊

    1. Thank you so much. I am pretty sure that I am not, but it’s really kind of you to say. Irina’s blog really is amazing though and I can’t wait what you she will come up with next year. Just like someone named Matt-in-the-Hat 😉

      1. It really, really is very good. Not only that, she is one of the most supportive bloggers you are likely to meet here,which is even better. Hope you will enjoy the blog as much as I do (and a lot of other people do 😊😊)

      2. Thank you and I will. I want to expand and see other’s writing out there. I believe in you and if you say she’s good, I will believe it. Gotta support writers. 🙂


    1. Thank you: Irina is a big Steins Gate fan so that is why I included these pictures. I watched the original show and the movie…but not Zero yet. Small note though: I did not really like the show as much as other people did. But I do plan on giving it a rewatch somewhere this year just to see if I can change my mind for this 😊

      1. I understand hahah, I found that things really took off once you reach around episode 12 (that halfway point). But for someone to commit that long before getting to understand why the show is so popular and good is a bit risky. The finale was however quite rewarding for me haha

      2. I did watch the entire series, but I don’t know…it just didn’t click for me. Still..It did keep spinning around in my head, so I will give it another chance this year. Maybe this time around I will enjoy it, which certainly happens at times 😊

    1. Haha…she certainly is the best, which is why she deserved this post. Oh and I am pretty sure that she will forgive you for that 😊😊 I have a day off work today, so time to catch up on some things (still way too few things though lol😂😂).
