WordPress Daily Prompt: Progress

When you look back at your blog on January 2, 2015, what would you like to see? 

Photographers, artists, poets: show us PROGRESS.


Yesterday I actually reached little over 2000 disciples on my prize suspected blog, so I now take the opportunity to thank all those that are watching my shaky golden oldie footsteps in this cyber world. I was going to put this badge on my page, but it was made with a little photo shopping in the Ribbit programme and the WordPress Lords may not agree to this infringement of their badging copyright,so it will only appear once. Unfortunately the WordPress achievement badges only show up to 1,337 followers. Why this magical number I do not know.

I will not and do not look back on happenings so much. I do not even look forward, but prefer to stay in the present with both feet on the ground. I wrote 365 daily prompts in 2013 plus a few other brainwaves I had for telling everyone what was happening in my little world. Now and again my work was invaded from another planet known as Blogger where I still entertain my backup blog and belong to a couple of groups that had migrated from the deceased Multiply blogging site.

A few blogging fingers also stretched out to Facebook formed groups. Here I am also to be found, but not regularly. I do not like the cheap copy Facebook groups, but now and again partake meeting old cyber colleagues from Multiply. WordPress advised to start my own page in Facebook which I did. A good public relations tip from WordPress recommending cross posting my WordPress blogs but also a way to reach out to contacts in another sphere. Now and again a lost soul finds its way to press a like in Facebook and perhaps even dare to place a comment.

No, I am not addicted to blogging, it just happened. I was running out of ideas and WordPress gave me a grip under the blogging arm. I am not sitting on my computer all day. Housework is not completed with a Word Programme and even my iPad is not yet equipped with a built in vacuum cleaner. I spend perhaps an hour or two in the afternoon on the computer (time flies when you are having fun) and a further hour in the early evening after the evening meal.

I just take life as it comes. Of course I have various important appointments during the year, to the docs, dentist, and my weekly Tai Chi course. My blogging is not set to a fixed plan. I am at home and no longer a working woman, so I do what I want to do and not what I have to. I also do not regard the daily prompt as a must. It just sort of happens. Perhaps one day/week my blog might be missing as I might be on a holiday or visiting my father, but I will be back (that is a promise not a threat).

WordPress have now started a new daily challenge for the month of January known as “Zero to Hero: 30 Days to a Better Blog” complete with a pledging form. This challenge will appear daily in my European evening at 7. UnfDailyortunately I could not resist and entered my details in this form with the remark that I am not yet sure this pledge will be fulfilled. I generally do not like signing for something when I do not know how it looks. Perhaps this blog will now appear daily on my page for a month, perhaps not – who can tell. I do not really do pledges or promises, life is too short.

Summed up, there is nothing I would really like to see this year. Oh, of course, I almost forget – perhaps an announcement that the Pulitzer/Nobel/Man Booker prize has been awarded to Angloswiss for her fantastic, original, realistic, reality blogs conquering the 50 Shades of the Blogging World. As you can see, nothing has changed much here.
