I stepped into the internet with this blog. Since then the world of communicating online has change so much. For one, more and more of it is being done via mobile phones what with Instagram and TikTok and who knows what else – I can’t keep up with them.
There’s podcasting and vlogging and YouTubing as well but I am quite content to let my camera record images and not videos. I still prefer remaining behind the camera and not in front… well, the vast majority of the time anyway.
There are a number of you who have been with me since almost day one and I appreciate that very much (that’s not to say that I don’t appreciate those of you who are more recent you are appreciated too!) Some have ceased to blog and have disappeared; hopefully they have gone on to do something else enjoyable. And sadly, I know of one follower who passed.
How long will I or for that matter any of us continue to blog? Who knows! I am at the point of taking it and life one day (or week) at a time. Here’s to the future of blogging or whatever the heck it may morph into. The only thing I am sure of is that I will keep going with my photography… and who knows how that’s going to change!
Oh and here’s a flying swan for you 🙂
9 years is almost a decade! Good to persist and continue to show us good photos with us. Yes, technology has changed so much but I still like WP as a platform as the readers and those who blog have the same mindset like ours. Happy blogging and 9 years is indeed a great achievement. Kudos!
Thank you and yes it is a mighty long time isn’t it? And I’ve enjoyed your sense of humor all these years too – hehehe!
Thank you Dashfield for following and laughing with me.
That’s a long journey isn’t it – 9 years? I have been part of a very very small fraction of that journey, but have loved it. Please keep capturing those beautiful moments with your camera Teri . And that was the first time I saw a swan fly, I thought they just flap their wings in water, make that terrible noise and then go back to swimming 😇
Thank you for joining me on this journey and just this past weekend I had the same pair of swans fly directly over my head! Then at another pond I witnessed another pair of swans get into a “get off my turf” fight with some geese. The swans won easily!
I never knew there were such fights. I have neither swan nor geese in my neighborhood, so searched YouTube and watched some epic fights just now. And the Swans won all of them 😀
They are beautiful bullies aren’t they? 🙂
Haha, absolutely adorable unless you are geese 🙂
Congratulations! 🎉 I’m glad I found your blog. I enjoy your wonderful photos and posts.
Thank you and I am glad we found each other; love your images too!
As a long time follower, I have enjoyed your beautiful images and tagging along on this journey we call blogging. 🥂
As well as torturing me on hikes 😉 We’ve come a long way together haven’t we? 🙂
Yes, we have! 😁
Amazing how the time flies…along with the swans. Terrific capture, Teri.
Thank you, Jane 🙂
I have been as happy as ever following along your blogging journey.
Congratulations my friend!
Thank you! And I am so happy we met here and then there 🙂
You took the words right out of my mouth!
Congratulations, Teri! Wish I had a Timmies to cheer you with! Cher xo
Thanks, Cher! And they are building a new Timmies down the road from us! woo hoo!
Congratulations to your blog’s anniversary!
Thanks you! Does that congrats come with a BBQ platter maybe? 🙂
