Tama-Chan: Can you believe it? Today, we are celebrating 14 whole years since that very first blog post, in 2008, by Sen-Chan and Tommy. I was not there at the time. In fact. I was not yet born! But I joined the two at the end of October that year, and I have been blogging my whole life! And today, we also celebrate little Momo's threemonthday!
Let us start with a few statistics. We have published 4818 posts since we started. There have been years when we have managed to post every single day, and others not. We have received over 77,000 comments and had over one million hits since we started!
How does one do a post looking back over so many years and so many wonderful souls? When the blog was started, neither Sen-Chan nor Tommy were even a year old! Sen-Chan was only with us for a short time, and it has already been three and a half years since Tommy left. And then, there was Sei-Chan, my beloved sister, Yuu-Chan the Sweet, My son Bibi, Genji the Prince. We get some comfort from knowing they are all together again, along with Ikkyu, #1's first Aby who left the year before the blog started, and Trav, our short-term outdoor feral who also left too young. Suffice to say that we treasure the memory of each and every one of them. They are all still with us, not just in our hearts, but in our house and garden. We will always love them.
that is a very long memory road... we loved to walk it together with you today... even with some tears there are many smiles... happy blogoversary...ReplyDelete

Among all who have gone before, there are many years of wisdom and experience. Fourteen years is mighty impressive. Congratulations! Hope to see you for another fourteen.ReplyDelete
This blog is the first thing our #1 looks at every morning. Most mornings it makes her smile even laugh. Some mornings it has made her cry. But we know she loves you all! Congratulations on your anniversary! xxReplyDelete

Happy Blogaversary! since we just met recently, I am so glad you showed all your angels from the past that we missed. God bless you for sharing your life with all of them. Also happy to see all your current babies and their birthdates. I agree, there is something special about connections through a blog that is not there on other social mediaReplyDelete
We started blogging in 2008 as well. Congratulations. We remember your beloved bridge angels too.ReplyDelete

Khyra's Khorner has been around for a long time as well - I'm kinda new here but I think NAK and her assistant have made it happen daily - she describes it as GOOD DISCIPLINE for her Virgo self -
The highlights are SO many but I hear NAK and NAK getting to meet #1 was off the chart -
Here's to many more!
