The Daily Post’s one word prompt for today was Muse .
And if you take a peek here , you will be able to read very interesting takes on this theme .
But as some of you are already tired of knowing by now , I have this switch button on my head where a word prompts a song , and to the word muse this is what came up
which is totally appropriate as madness is what abounds around here and what has been going on for a year now .
Yes TheTurtleWay is one year old today 🙂
It was on the distant Aug.03rd of 2015 that I “attended” my first lesson on Blogging 101 , and really it still amazes me how I managed to put out that first post .
More amazing yet was : that post was read and had 1 like on its first day 😉 and I went : “oh! it’s real , it’s out there , people can read me” 😉
Did I believe I would still be around here one year later ? I did hope I would be , but I doubted it , I thought this would prove such a difficult task for tech-challenged me that I would have to give it up .
Did I learn to write well , to take and post amazing photographs , to have a beautiful blog like those that inspired me to start blogging ? (like I wrote on it) . No , I did not , yet .
I’m still learning and probably the thrill of learning is one of the reasons that I’m still here , even if I am evolving at a much slower pace than I imagined I would .
So what ? it’s my Turtle pace 🙂
The other reason I’m still here ?
You my dear Turtlies .
Without your support and your friendship I would probably have called it quits a long time ago .
But you help me in so many ways that you have no idea , and you teach me and make me think and make me laugh .
And reading all of you is like taking a trip around the world , meeting so many fantastic yous , and learning about different ways of living and approaching life’s challenges .
So thank you all for walking (slowly) along with me throughout this first blogging year .
Let’s see if you can get me running next 🙂
Thank You and Turtle Hugs ❤
PS : this post almost didn’t happen today because I couldn’t make it “the perfect bloganniversary post” but Never a Dull Bling just posted something today that was just what I needed (as I have this tendency of not doing if I can’t do it “right” 😦 ) to hear 🙂
PS 2 : not a perfect post , but the best I could today , and the anniversary is today , not when I have the “perfect” conditions . The Turtle is learning 🙂
