Feliz Dia de Los Muertos! Happy Fifth–no SIXTH?– Bloggoversary!
and Happy Fifth Bloggoversary to me!
Or is it sixth?? or seventh?
On the urging of the Accidental Novelist Danika Dinsmore and Sophia Kidd, I started this blog the night the time changed in November 2007. We were going to watch a movie after my husband put my son to bed…except he fell asleep, and the next morning, when he woke up, he was married to a blogger!
A year after starting Art Predator, in 2008 I added Wine Predator. I’m also the Compassionate Rebel (as of January 2010), and less often these days I’m Bikergo Gal (2009). I also blog about writing at The Write Alley (2010) and Whisper Down the Write Alley (2008).
In 2009, I celebrated my second bloggoversary in Portugal on an amazing and life changing wine blogging trip; earlier this year I had my 500,000 page view on Art Predator. In this post, I review some of my favorite posts and some of the most popular ones too.
When I started on this journey six–no seven??– years ago, I would never have guessed I’d be where I am today as a successful wine blogger and social media influencer. But to be honest, I’ve been writing my whole life and Art Predator actually started as a newspaper column back in the mid-90s.
Thank you for for subscribing and reading!! Hard to believe I’ve been at it so many, how many??, lotsa years!
