My Lucky Seven

It was seven years ago today that I began this blog. I chose the name, the layout, the color scheme, the font, and the general message all on that very first day. A lot has changed, but a lot remains just as it was back in 2005.

I will mark the anniversary this week by posting a series of questions and answers from a reader interview. There will be several installments.

This occasion reminds me how grateful I am for this medium and the opportunities it has given me to meet and talk with all of you. Thank you for visiting, reading, participating, and being a part of this blog! I couldn't do this without you.

Congratulations Bonnie and Randy,

Is it really only 7 years ago that the "World as we know it", started?
How does it feel to be a world changing force?

Thank you for all that you do for us.

Bonnie, Congratulations, on the 7th Anniversary of your blog. The only thing that 'tops' this, or should I say 'bottom's' this, is the 'Seven Wonder's of the World'. "Bravo, Bravo, Bravo".

I've said it before and I'll say it again, Bonnie:

In our world, YOU are the epicenter. Thank you a thousand times over for your dedication, time commitment, and outstanding stewardship of this
iconic destination website.

Long may you reign, my dear friend.

Hi, Bonnie. Please accept my belated congratulations on your Lucky 7 Blogiversary! My reasons for being tardy are merely excuses, but they still kept me away. That means I'm going to blame them instead of my inability to fix them.

As a person without a blog, I want to thank you on behalf of the non-bloggers and lurkers. Your contributions are wonderful and give us a great place to come visit, whether we join in on the party or sit quietly in the corner to absorb and enjoy. Thank you, too, for your assistance and support to so many other bloggers, helping them to feel comfortable and succeed with their own blogs. That has given us non's more places to visit, relate, learn, laugh, make friends.

I'm off, returning to battle the evils interfering with my blog-viewing and -commenting experience. May your day be filled with love and laughter, and as many spanks as your bottom's heart desires. ;-)

Thanks again, and blessings...

Irishey (crossing my fingers and wishing on my lucky stars this will post)
