Blogaversary/Blogiversary? My 5th Year Blogging Anniversary post — MidWeek Blues —

The four pictures are a progression of a flower in our side yard bed. It comes back for torture every spring. It did have a couple of big red flowers but evidently I didn't catch it doing this for a picture this year. The little pink flowers come every Spring but they are on a different plant.

The cycles it goes through remind me of my blogging. Sometimes good, sometimes not so good. But I enjoy doing it.

Yes, I will have something blue towards the bottom here.

Blogaversary: About 26,500 results
Blogiversary: About 106,000 results

Do you say blogaversary or blogiversary?

That doesn't matter too much to me. Today is my 5th Blogging Anniversary.

Jim's Little Blog was started on December 1, 2005. It seems like a long time that I have been pounding these keys but not quite five years!

They say that time flies when you're having fun.

When Jim's Little Blog was one year old December 1, 2006, I started a second blog, Jim's Little Photo and Poem Place.

Both these blogs are still up and running nicely. Like my money, any better and I couldn't handle things very good.

Then on December 1, 2009, I started Ask Dr. Jim (blog). That was the one that made my blogging almost too much for me. Fortunately it doesn't get very many comments for me to answer and I only post when a question arises.

From time to time I would start other blogs but these three have survived. I have ten titled blogs, seven of which are rather hard to find. This year I am tempted to start something different but it won't be on December 1.

Some stats:

Jim's Little Blog: 69,107 Visitors; 1747 Posts;

Jim's Little P&P Place: 16,998 Visitors; 777 Posts

Ask Dr. Jim (blog): 12,680 Visitors; 89 Posts (most popular:
How to make rooster stop crowing in the middle of the night, Mr. Seed needs to know for about 25 percent of the 'hits')

The other seven together: 563 Posts (some ran for over a year)


So far there have been 15811 comments.
That first blog's commenters were Rachel, Cliff Morrow, and Ray (my daughter, Susie) on December 1, 2, and 10, 2005.

As far as blogs go, I believe mine are modestly popular. Some blogs have thousands of steady readers. I estimate mine to be over 100 but not 200. Quite a few are relatives and friends who do not leave comments.

I tell people that blogging is like having pen pals. Keeping up with correspondence via comments helps keep them all as friends.

Do I do MySpace, FaceBook, Skype, and YouTube? Do you?
I answer "Yes" to all of these but I am not very active on any. Adi blinking with the Christmas tree lights finally had 10,277 views (

Thank you all for sticking with me.
I won't bore you with stuff like this again until next year. So long.

Oh yes, my blue pictures:

If you want to post a MidWeek Blues picture, go get directions from Rebecca by clicking on the logo picture on the right. She has a Mr. Linky and good directions . Just do what I did.

Or do less. All she requires is a BLUE PICTURE or BLUE THOUGHT, you don't have to write.

That's amazing that you have been blogging for five years! Congratulations!
Congratulation for successful blogging and not running out of things to post about! May you have many more blogiversaries...and so glad you are a charter member of Midweek Blues participants too. :)
happy blogging anniversary!!
I always enjoy seeing photos of you and Mrs Jim - you're a beautiful couple :)

Hugs from Hope
Congratulations. One more year and you have me beat.
Doug, thank you for sitting still and waiting for me. You are one of the forerunners in blogging.
My prediction is that you will start back regularly soon. If nothing else for keeping us and your relatives informed about your goings on.

Dianne, half of us is a beautiful couple. Look at me closer, I have a few wrinkles and gray hairs.
Kiss your granddaughter, Hope, for all of us. Hope is a couple of weeks older than our granddaughter, KP.

Rebecca, I am glad that MidWeek Blues is off and running so good. And it isn't out of hand either, just a nice friendly grouping.

EGW, thank you. I peeked in on you and see March 2008. It seemed to me you have been blogging forever. I remember your nice pictures and our exchanges from way back in the early Wordles Wednesday days!

Happy Blogging Anniversary Jim. I know what you mean about starting a new blog as I have such mad impulses too from time to time. I am just trying to contain myself to the two I have - well three if you count the one for Tippy. I too have a Facebook and Twitter account but can't say that they come close to getting me hooked.
Hi Jim ~~ Congratulations on your
