Today, April 7th 2005, is thatcanadiangirl.co.uk’s first birthday!
I’ve had websites, live journals and other small and pointless online presences on and off since 1994, but on April 7th 2004, I decided I was here to stay and setup a little squatter’s corner on a friend’s website, using b2 (or was it b2evo? either way it was bloated and patched together).
Once I settled down in England, I moved the blog to WordPress, and with a bit (a lot) of help from my dear other half, I settled with a first design. It was grey and blue, followed by a candy pink design, followed by the beautiful current design, for which Andrew gets all credit really!
So over the course of a year, with a total of approximately 360 posts, I’ve achieved what I wanted: a daily diary about my life and the events of the past year, graduation, moving back to the UK, getting married, going on holidays, buying a house, also sprinkled with short articles about technology, blogging, tv, music, and other random thoughts. I haven’t been writing for as long as some of my favourite bloggers but at least, I can now proudly say it’s been a whole year! And what an exciting year it was!
Without readers, blogs are hardly interesting at all, so thank you, dear readers, for turning this into an interactive and exciting adventure! It’s been a year, and it’s only just starting to get interesting!
Long live blogging!
