My 3rd Blogiversary

My 3rd Blogiversary

I just had a thought – Reflection from a Redhead’s Blogiversary was sometime in September. In fact, it’s today!  And to think I almost missed it.

I cannot believe that this blog has been going for 3 YEARS.  Who would have thought?  I certainly didn’t when I started.  I had not envisioned where it would take me, how addicted I would become, how it would become my identity, how I would make friends all around the world, how people would recognise me from my blog, how impacted people would be by my writing, how much my life would change.

All because of one little blog.

I love blogging, and I’m so happy to be doing more of it again. Hello blogging mojo – I hope you stick around!  I’d like to say I have grand plans for the coming year, but if I’ve learn’t anything in 3 years, it’s that you can’t really plan anything – so just go with the flow.

And thanks to everyone who has read, commented, followed and supported Reflections from a Redhead and myself over the last few years.  You all mean the world to me.

    Hi, Janine, congrats and kudos on your big anniversary. This is a huge achievement, do we not all know it? A roller coaster ride, sometimes taking our breath away, sometimes making us want to close our eyes to shut out reality …

    Cheers! Barbara

    Happy Blogiversary! Three years! Remember we started at the same time but I just didn’t have your staying power – or better said I got involved in other writing. Look forward to celebrating more Blogiversaries.

      Thanks Penelope! You’ve progressed onto bigger and better things, whereas I got distracted, lost my way, etc. etc. But these things happen for the strangest reasons sometimes 🙂

    Happy Belated Blogiversary! 3 years is a great achievement – many bloggers don’t make it past a few posts.
