In ten days time this little blog will celebrate its fourth birthday! Can you believe it?!
I must be starting to look my age because I keep receiving emails about blogging! As if I knew what I was doing! Hah! I don’t think so, but reading the emails has reminded me of how I felt when I first started blogging. That initial nervousness, the excitement, wondering where blogging would lead me, wondering if anyone would ever read me ….
One of the most amazing and effective elements of blogging is helping each other out. No blog can succeed without the support and generosity of other blogs; I still remember so well the first time a blogger (thank you Millie!) put me on her blogroll, how I jumped for joy.
So I have decided that on the 23rd of this month I want to celebrate my fourth birthday by highlighting four upcoming blogs. And that is where you come in.
To celebrate this anniversary I would love to talk about four new-ish blogs whose style and subject matter touch me; whose pictures I love, whose writing speaks to me. I know there are a million wonderful blogs out there, but I shall just choose four, to highlight and link back to.
So if you have a blog you would like to recommend, be it your own, your daughter’s , your dad’s or your best friend’s, please send me an email headed ‘anniversary blogs’ and tell me all about it. Please don’t leave the names in the comment box below, that way we’ll keep the surprise intact.
I’ll be looking for lifestyle blogs, food blogs, blogs about France, blogs about family life, about art … you get the picture. The blog must use mostly original pictures and have been publishing regularly for less than one year, so anybody who started blogging in 2013 qualifies.
I’ll be back tomorrow maybe talking with you about blogging, in the meantime I’d love to hear what you love most about blogging; why you return to your favourite blogs again and again and what you find in blogging that you don’t find elsewhere.
Merci mes amis, à demain!
