It is Day 6 of the FanstRAvaganza!I hope you have been enjoying it so far. In case you missed it, yesterday was Jazzbaby1's turn to post over at Funky Blue Dandelion. I hope you stopped in and left her a comment. Say hello from me too, in case I haven't made it over there yet. Right now I am spending my March Break in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico where the internet access is intermittent at best!
Today please join me to celebrate this blog's 2nd Anniversary. The actual date of my first blog post was March 19th, 2010. At the time, it was right in the middle of the first FanstRAvaganza. I didn't plan it that way, honest! I didn't know anything about the first celebration of Armitagemania when I made my plans. But it was March Break and I knew I wouldn't be going anywhere that year, so I had time to jump into blogging and see what might happen.
When I started thinking about creating a blog most my friends were using Blogger: Nat, Avalon, TeeTotallyNot, Ragtag, Maria Grazia, Charleybrown, Traxy, Ruth, Jane ; Mulubinba was using Typepad, which was a lot less common and then Servetus came on board with Wordpress. Frenz was next with Wordpress and since then, that seems to be the blog platform of choice. I am completely out of my comfort zone with Tumblr, but that seems to be where it's at now! Of course before I started reading RA blogs there was LiveJournal and perhaps some other type I've missed.
I've liked the ease of use of Blogger but there are some glitches that crop up now and then. The biggest problem (according to what some of my readers have told me) is that it is sometimes difficult to make comments. It has happened to me too, on some blogs and believe me -- after typing a long and thoughtful comment and then seeing it disappear into cyberspace -- I feel your pain! I have started to copy the comment to notepad or some other word program before I press "send". Then at least I can try again without all the rethinking and typing! Please see the poll on the sidebar about this issue.
|You can't hide here any more. They're on to me!|
It has been such fun getting to know so many interesting people worldwide, from every walk of life who have one detail in common. We are Armitagemaniacs!
Tomorrow is the last day of FanstRAvaganza.
