One-Year Blogging Birthday!

I don’t know if blogging for one year triggers a birthday celebration, an anniversary or both. I’m going with birthday, because while I hitched myself to WordPress in 2017, it wasn’t until March 1, 2018 that I launched Walk the Goats, and committed to writing regularly.  Here I am; one year in, plugging away.

Thanks to those who joined me on the outset of this journey. To those who found me more recently, welcome.  It seemed easier to meet fellow bloggers when the WordPress Community Pool existed. Or maybe I just need a gentle push to engage with others more.

So, in honor of this wonderful blogging community and my one-year-blogging birthday, I’ve got an ask. Send me some great reads. Link me to a favorite blog post. Whether it’s your own or a fellow blogger—or both!—doesn’t matter. I’ll read, and I’ll comment.

Help plug me in to others. Help me laugh, learn, ponder, mull and delight in the wit and wisdom of those you read. It’ll be an awesome blogging-birthday-gift. Serve it up in the comments below.

If you simply want to wish me a happy blogging-birthday, I’ll take it. Thanks, and here’s to continued blogging success!

    I feel the same way. The community pool was so helpful, what happened to it? I am trying to start a similar platform on Fridays because I miss it.

    Today is the second Friday I post it but not much response. I wold appreciate some support or feedback on how to go about it.

    Here is a link to it. Hope to hear from you 🙂

    1. I have your FriYAY Social open. My current multi-tasking of listening to a webinar and trying to work on a spreadsheet and trying to blog isn’t, well, working so well. When I pull it together to do one-at-a-time, I’ll pop on in and participate. Thanks for your birthday wishes!

    1. Good question. I haven’t been consistent in reading bloggers I follow. There’s a few I read pretty regularly. Then life gets busy and I miss a bunch. I’m trying to find my way through that question and figure out, realistically, how much time I can spend on that.

      Thanks for the birthday wishes!


  2. Happy Blogging Birthday.. honestly I was wondering the same thing… what ever happened to the community pool? I would love to start the same thing… this way I can get feed back & try to help others as well! My blogs are very random.
    I actually needed a tip on how to make my new blog viewable as I think I added an emoji to
    It :🐶/

    Otherwise I told others to please view/ google my website & click hotel for dogs:

    Thank you!!
