11 not out Bloganiversary 11 years of winstonsdad

Well, it was actually a few days ago this blog turned 11 it has been a long journey recently I have slowed blogging wise but still am posting reviews. I hope to do more posts after this Covoid thing has passed. As for the state of the blog I feel I am settled I love doing reviews and these days mix review and personal choices more than I used. In the last eleven years, I have seen bloggers come and go and the world of blogging changes its quieter now as people use other platforms. But for me, it is still lively with those that remain like myself after a lot of years are like old friends. I maybe have less time to comment and spend less time on twitter than I once did but still love the buzz of a good week on #translationthurs hard believe that it runs its self as a meme ten years after I first suggested it. Moving forward more of the same I love it as much as I did when I started but in a more settled way than I once did. I  like to say thanks to all those Publishers, readers, bloggers, and book folk I have met through this blog or passed comment with blog-wise this blog has given me so many things I wouldn’t have done and hopefully have many new adventures in coming years.

    It’s lovely that you feel more settled in what you do now Stu. So you should, but it’s sometimes hard to get to that point.

    I really liked your comment that the blogosphere “is still lively with those that remain”. I hit 11 years the month before you did, and I agree. It’s lovely having a long history of people who have been sharing the same ups and downs, and the book-is discussions, isn’t it.

    So, a big congratulations from me.

    Congratulations Stu. You have introduced me to so many wonderful authors and books. And thanks vicariously to the publishers who support your venture.
