Blogiversary #7

It has been 7 years today since my first blog post, now at

I have had 631 posts total between 4 different sites.  Since I switched to (in 12/09) I have had 39,169 visits.  When I was on blogger (4/08 – 12/09) I had 9,608 visits.  The very original blog that was on GeoCities (2/05 – 6/06) is still on line at, but the photos have been taken down from the Yahoo servers they were on.  The second blog that was on a Yahoo site (6/06- 4/08) has been taken down entirely.  I do not have statistics from my first two blog sites.  I did move all three prior blogs to my current one as best I could.  There are some photos missing and in my free time I plan on recreating them (but have not found the free time yet!).

Here’s the cluster map for my blogger site:

I had not created a cluster map for the current blog so am just now starting that.  It will be interesting seeing where my visitors come from.

This blog has become important to me as far as documenting my farm life with its ups and downs.  It is a way of communicating with people and learning from them.  So now 7 years of my life are posted on line and presumably there will be more to come.  I hope you will enjoy it!

  1. Congratulations on your Blogiversary! I’ve got one coming up in a few days myself. I know what you mean about blogging becoming a way of documenting your life on the farm and communicating with people. It’s pretty much the only “record-keeping” that I do! 😉

    Looking forward to following you into the future…

    Happy anniversary! I enjoy reading about all your activities…I was amazed at how you went from the “dead of winter” with all the snowfall to the blooming crocus and the apple trees starting to blossom!

    Hi Donna,
    Happy anniversary! I’ve sure enjoyed reading your blog over the years and have learned lots! Keep up the good work.

    Congrats Donna. I’m not even sure when I started blogging (I just checked – it will be 5 years at the end of this month) – but I’m only now starting to feel like I’m getting the hang of it, and I always look to your blog for inspiration because I enjoy it so much. Thank you, thank you
    (and I can’t believe you have crocuses already – we are still totally socked in Winter here in the North Okanagan of BC).

      Thanks Monique! I am glad you enjoy my blog (but it is only 2 years older than yours). And I was surprised to find crocuses in the yard too.
