Tom: Can you believe it, Dear Friends? today marks exactly THREE years since we started blogging. Of the current members of the Poupounette Gang, I am the only one who was around at the time (0r even born then!), so I get to do the honours.
Firstly, here is a collage of ALL Poupounette Gang members since the beginning:
I am in the centre. From top left clockwise, Sen-Chan (RIP), Tama-Chan, Yuu-Chan (RIP), Vidock, Bibi-Chan and Sei-Chan.
You can see our very first blog post here. Back then, it was just Sen-Chan and me. He and I had wonderful adventures and I still miss him a lot. He got here one month before I did and he welcomed my pup self with open paws when I arrived! I immediately became a kitty fan!
On the third day that we blogged, we got a comment from Angus Mhor and the big guy is still around and blogging. We love you, Angus! Over the past three years, so many people have stopped blogging, some have just vanished, and too many have gone to the Bridge. And yet, we are always meeting new bloggers and making new friends. We have received "actual" visits from blogging friends in the States and Germany and hope others will stop by. We are great believers in the Blogosphere!
We love to look back over our years together and #1 has gradually been ordering Blog-2-Print books, each of which covers a 6-month period. We already have three that take us to the end of 2009.
We have also evolved a great deal as a family, losing Sen-Chan and Yuu-Chan far too young, and welcoming Tama-Chan, Sei-Chan, Bibi-Chan and Vidock. Through it all, you have shared our joys and tears, and we thank you all for your friendship and support. And guess what? We are also coming up shortly to our 1,000th post! This one is #985!
And so, dear friends, to celebrate our Third Blogaversary, #1 is giving us a gift:
What do you think?
