Ladies and gentlemen…we have 50 posts!
And boy am I proud of myself 😉
It has been a year since I started these ramblings, and 50 posts later, 600 subscribers, and nearly 10,000 views to date, I am a very happy man. I adore writing this blog, and I am touched that so many of you (apparently) enjoy reading it too.
So I wanted to take this time to thank each and every one of you who has liked, commented, linked, read, or just looked at my pictures – I really do appreciate it. I have also been lucky enough to be nominated for an award – I will be making a page especially for that over the next few days – not that I am arrogant and think I shall be nominated for a million more, but it is the sort of thing that I do not want to get lost in the blogroll…which brings me onto this week’s post.
I love the blog format, but it is all about the post you write today. Before you know it, the post of yesterday is swept aside like my money at a black jack table, and no one can find it again. And so, in honour of my new subscribers and readers, I wanted to look back on my favourite 5 blogs of the past. I do apologise for the self-indulgence, and to my hardcore fans that have been with me since the start. I am afriad you may want to skip this week’s installment, and come back next time…I have got some CRAZY good stuff to share with you then 🙂
But until then, I leave you with my top 5…click on the picture to be whisked off to some blogage of the past. And really, truly, with all the sincerity in the world: thank you.
I am very humbled by your readership 😉
Ferg’s Top 5 blogs from the past.
Number 5 – the Limbo Lady
I love this blog, it is littered with excitement – a new job, a new camera, and this was the first (of many) photos I took of the amazing Cheryl.
Number 4 – The Caterpillars
Again, another exciting blog. I had discovered that my D700 could do timelapse and I got a little giddy at the thought…and these guys are just AWESOME.
Number 3 – Steve Jobs is a pain in the arse (NB – this was written before he passed away)
No photos for this blog, but I re-read it and gave myself a giggle. As you will tell from the first paragraph…I was having a very bad day…
Number 2 – Dwayne the dancer
This was the first blog that I introduced my little logo thing on my photos. I was crazy excited because I found out that a lot of people were finding me through Google’s image searches….and rather vainly hoped that someone had used an image of mine in a presentation, or school homework or something….I love the thought of my work being used to better an assignment, or be a good header for a slideshow – but if they show it in class – I want everyone to see where it came from.
And…number one has to be:
Number 1 – Ollie
The best blog, because it means so much to so many people. Ollie came home, and all involved were relieved, happy and joyous. It really was a magic day.
As always, thanks for reading guys…and don’t forget to subscribe!
Ferg I love it 🙂 and it is a good point about blogs potentially getting lost. I was just wondering if you wrote this one on your laptop or the £@#%$€% iMac? xx (gave me a real giggle again :-D)
