A Birthday Song

Happy Birthday to you,
Happy Birthday to you,
Happy Birthday dear Bloggie,
Happy Birthday to you!

This blog was born on June 1st, 2006. Today it is officially 4 years old. This is my 2,141st post. At this writing I have 40,131 approved comments and Akismet (WordPress’s wonderful spam filter) has protected my site from 59,974 spam comments that were never published.

I want each and every one of my readers to know that every success I have enjoyed here is because of you.  My comment section is often much more lively and fun then my original post.  All of you make blogging a joy.  Thank you.


  1. Congratulations Quilly!! I really enjoy your various posts and I agree about the comments. They are just as interesting as the posts. 🙂

    1. Church Lady — and that doesn’t include the couple hundred I deleted from my first year. Thank you for being part of my blogging adventure.

    1. Karen — WordPress and it’s spam filter does make blogging less tedious. Thank you for being part of my success.

  2. happy blogiversary and dang, doesn’t it seem wrong that there are more spam than comments??
    So annoying.

    Blog on, sister!

    1. Logo — well, I have two other blogs before I transferred to this blog host, so the comment count is really only for the last 2.5 years.

    1. Thanks, Barbara — I appreciate Askismet. I am glad to have you as a regular visitor and commenter on my blog. You often make me think and consider different perspectives.

    1. Lady — I think I might to better to keep on typing. 😉 I know you are relatively new to my blog, but I appreciate your visits, too.

    1. Lisa – -it has been a ride, hasn’t it? How’s life treating you? I miss you now that you don’t blog.

    1. Karen — hmmm, the Cyrillic spam doesn’t bother me as much as the stuff I can actually read and comprehend the slimy content.

      1. Oh. I guess you’ve read more slimy content than I have because you’ve had 59,974 spam comments in 2.5 years. That’s much worse than having 40,131 approved comments over the same time period.

  3. bonne anniversaire!
    (but that’s on wordpress, right? there must have been a blogger blog before if mymemory serves me well)

    1. Nessa — hey, you’ve been here since almost my beginning, too. Your blog — and Doug’s — are even older than mine. I really appreciate you for sticking around.
