Seventh Blogaversary

Secondary Roads

Secondary roads,
Take you off the beaten trail,
Lead you to less stress.


My first blog post went online seven years ago today.  Much has changed in that time.

In those first few years, I’d spend up to six or seven hours per day cruising blogs and clicking on badges.  It was hard work trying to increase my blog rating.  Fortunately, that has gone the way of the dinosaur.  Family and close friends are now my target audience.  I blog to please them.

I also blog to learn.  There is always something new to discover and to try.

Thanks for joining me on this journey down secondary roads.  Here’s looking forward to this next year of blogging.

  1. Yours is in my top five favorites. I don’t have the time I used to take to read blogs either. I was actually trying to make money doing it back then, so all that blog-hopping was part of my “work.”

    • MQD is high on my favorites list. I tried to monetize my blog too, but didn’t take more than the first step down that trail.

      I did a little research and found that my favorite blogs (and bloggers) all started in a period of less than nine months. There is one exception to that (Rita T), and she started eleven and a half years ago.

  2. Congratulations! That is a long time to be blogging! And how long have we been friends?? I think about that long, right? 🙂

    Keep the posts coming!

    • We’ve been friends for almost that long. I remember you helping me get over some of the hurdles that face the beginners. I have no plans of quitting. 😎

  3. I check in regularly as I enjoy your blogs…keep up the great stories!!! Love them!!! :clap:

  4. I’ve never done any blogging,, or have I read any blogging, but was curious about it. Congratulations on your 7th year. I’m sure that you are good at it, as I believe you are a thinker and a writer!

  5. Congratulations on your perseverance. Keep up the good work! Nice commemorative badge. You used to live near route 7 did you not?
