This is blogaversary number one. It was one year ago on 9/10/07 that I made my first blog. I started out a worried blogger who wondered if anyone would read what I did on my blog. Here I am 444 blogs later and am confident enough to share my hobbies with my friends. I have had over 15,000 visits to the blog. My blog has changed during the year, one of the changes was a new Canon SX100IS camera that increased my ability to make some fun photos. I thank any regular visitor and I try to check out everyone who visits me. The other thing that changed were the friends I have found on the web. I am not as good of a photographer as the people I see on the web, but I am happy with where I am right now. Will I get a new and better camera? That is a question that goes through my mind quite often. I guess I have to say to myself, we will see and you reading this will be the first to know.
You as a new blogger really should have no fear. If people come onto your blog that are wrong for you, delete their comments. This does happen with spammers and scammers. If they don't have an audience they will leave. If you like someones blog you should let them know you are there. I hope you realize that comments are the life blood of blogging. Have fun and people will realize that you are making a contribution from your life to their life.
So, happy blogging to all of you and let us see who will win the blog prize.
I would like to say a hearty thank you to all my regular readers and I will have a surprise drawing at the end of the month with a pick of someone who visits my site during September. It will be chosen at random and it will be based on my blog remarks. I will announce the winner and show the prize on October first.
A blog does take work but it is fun.
