There are still two hours left of July 1, 2011. Half of the Daily Post-challenge is completed. There are 365 days in a year and today is day #182.
The challenge is a lot of fun, something I look forward to doing every day — not at all like the photo-a-day turned out to be after a while, a chore. I’ve been true to myself and not had a theme — I’ve been all over the place, from current news to squirrels in Rockwood Park.
Looked in to the statistics but it’s not that much fun because I moved my blog in May. It used to be a self-hosted blog before I moved it to free WordPress.com. An average of 52 hits per day, but that doesn’t really mean anything to me. What means more is that thanks to this challenge, I’ve met a bunch of great people … blogging buddies, that I wouldn’t have met without this. The comments/feedback is more than half of the fun, and always appreciated!
It’s Canada Day and as I type they’re shooting up fireworks from Long Wharf. McDuff has gone into hiding. Listening to this sound reminds me to be thankful to live in a peaceful corner of the world … I know what it is … they are just friendly fireworks, but I remember the anxiety the sound caused with all the refugees in my work place back in the late 80’s.
