2nd Blogiversary at My Sardinian Life

There was a wonderful little reminder from WordPress this morning:

Thank you for reminding me WordPress!

Today, November 22nd, 2012 is the two-year blogiversary for My Sardinian Life! I can’t believe that I’ve written about this lovely island in the Mediterranean for this long. It seems like just yesterday when I took the leap of faith and signed up for a blog on WordPress – now two years have gone by. It’s been a fun and interesting adventure where I’ve learned about Sardinia – her people, cultures and magical traditions.

To my readers, followers and stalkers – thank you. If it weren’t for your words of encouragement in these last two years – in all honestly, I would have given up. I have virtually met so many wonderful, inspirational, courageous and brilliantly fantastic people via My Sardinian Life – I have learned from each of you. You have made dark days seem brighter and even managed to turn already sparkling days into moments of magic. It humbles me to be among your followers. Thank you.

And now I have a little treat for you all, and I do hope you enjoy.

    Congratulations Jennifer. I am a newish follower but I am loving your blog and read it almost every day. I started blogging for much the same reasons – let friends and family back home what we are up to. While we were in Sicily, it was almost impossible to find free wi-fi so, ironically, most of my blogging has been back in Canada. Since then, I have been blogging mostly because I love it!

    Congrats on your second blogiversary! May you blog for many more years.
    Notice how many versions there are? Blogoversary on the counter, Harry says blogaversary as do many others, but I have always preferred the blogiversary you also use, as adapted from anniversary.

  14. thirdeyemom says:

    Wonderful and congratulations!!!!! I’m following shortly behind and I think we started following each other from the start!:)

  15. Debra Kolkka says:

    Well done! I started my blog to help my friends discover Bagni di Lucca, but it seems to have developed a life of its own. One of the best things about blogging is meeting fellow bloggers. Thank you for sharing your beautiful island with us.

  16. TBM says:

    Congrats. My two year anniversary is coming up. I didn’t know I would enjoy blogging as much as I do. I started my blog to help me keep track on my goals. But it turned into so much more. I’m glad we met and I love learning about your part of the world. Thanks for sharing.

  17. Happy Blogoversary!!! Congrats and thanks for all the work you put in…I’ve been primarily stalking for a long time, and still think of you often!
