It’s My Five-Year Word Press Anniversary!


Today is my five-year anniversary with Word Press!   Happy Anniversary to me!  🙂

I created my account in 2011 but never posted anything until November 2012 right before my first knee replacement.  The blog was created for the sole purpose to update friends and family on the progress of my surgery, but in early 2013 it morphed into a photography blog in the early days of my photography hobby with my first DSLR.

THANK YOU EVERYONE for taking the time to read my blog and make comments, and for being here to share yours as well!   Our community is very special to me and while I go through spurts when I’m here more times than others, this is still my most favorite social media outlet of them all because it’s all of you who make it special.  A truly one-of-a-kind community!

Hope you all have a wonderful Sunday!

  24. Interesting to hear that about your background with Word Press – I started in 2013 and have found that regular viewers have become ‘pen’ or photo friends from around the world Diana

  25. Happy Anniversary, dearest Laura. Five years is a long time to contend with WP. 🙂

    • LOL and thank you Amy. 🙂 I think that’s why I’ve been through phases of being burned out. But when I got my anniversary post it perked me up! Hope you’re enjoying your new camera!

      • Yes I am. But. OH. MY. GOODNESS. It does not take pics as I am used to on my other one and now I have to start all over from scratch to learn where the sweet spots are on this one, and how to make my macros look as good if not better then what I was creating. Holy moly!! LOVE the way it feels in my hands and responds. Love it! I’m too darn nervous around it right now to use it right. It’s like HUH have I used a camera before? Let me think about this. I’m all thumbs. Tee hee ……

  26. Congratulations! 5 years ago? Oh my god… It’s a very long time. I needed 2 years more…

  27. Happy anniversary!

  28. Happy Anniversary – glad you kept this going with your photography!!
