Blog Birthday / Anniversary!

Photo by Leon Wilson

Today marks two years of posting on this blog. In that time, it has grown from a very few followers who are mostly old friends who just supported my initial efforts, to now over sixty followers... and that number does not include the readers who follow with an RSS feed. (I have no way of knowing how many follow in that manner.)

Page views have grown from a handful a week, to nearly 200 per day... that number also does not include RSS feed page views. Viewers come from all over the world

I must say that I am extremely pleased, esp. considering that as of late 2009 there were over 126 million blogs, and growing!

Folks have asked if I get any remuneration from my blog. I do not. I consider writing my blog as "paying it forward" for all the help, instruction and ideas that people have sent my way throughout my lifetime.

If anyone gets just a little help, a little more understanding of something, some encouragement or even some inspiration from my blog, it's just icing on the cake!


  1. Happy anniversary, Darius!

    Thank you so much for sharing your knowledge and experience. Your efforts create a continuous hand-to-hand paying it forward. How wonderful is that?

  2. Okay - I've signed up to "follow" more sneaking around for me.

    And...Happy b-day to the blog!

  3. You're funny!

    Thanks for the good wishes. :)


I'd love to hear what you think about my posts! We all learn together.
