My 2011 WordPress Experience


   This is my one hundred and ninetieth post, and I haven’t missed a day. I am proud of the fact that I always managed to create a daily entry; especially since I began writing in the summer. Don’t be afraid to read my first post: Why I Laugh. (There definitely were quite a few “inebriated posts!”)

     I would like to thank everyone who continues to support this site; my success has been a blessing from the “almighty.” If you know me, then you know I’m being facetious! (We all know there is no “big guy in the sky!”)

     Other than the great people (You know who you are!) who take the time to visit my site on a regular basis, my favorite 2011 WordPress memory happened at the beginning of December. That is the day I decided to search through the Blasphemy tags. To my amazement, one of my posts was the featured entry. I checked back daily, and the post continued to remain in the top position. Better yet, every time I tagged a new post with the word Blasphemy, the entry would replace my previous one as the featured post! (I am truly honored!)

     Prior to writing this entry, I searched through the Blasphemy posts and I am still the top dog. Even though the last time I used the tag was December 26th, my post, A Different Perspective, is the featured entry. It seems I have cornered the market when it comes to Blasphemy. (This atheist has something to tell the grandkids!)

***Just kidding; there will be no grandchildren! Read my post, You Can Keep Your Legacy, if you want to know why!***

     I started this blog because of some great advice that I came across; to be a writer, one must write every day! I figured since I need to write daily, I might as well create a blog. I never imagined that so many people would enjoy reading my work; the past (July is one…August is two…September is three…October is four…November is five…and December is six!) six months have been great!

     There were many days which I felt too lazy to write, but I always found the motivation whenever I thought about some of the comments that I have received throughout this experience! I look forward to continuing this endeavor for as long as my brain continues to function at a high level, properly, efficiently, work. (I am losing valuable brain cells at an alarming rate!)

     A hidden jewel is the spam blocker. Sometimes, new comments are sent to the spam folder so I check daily to make sure that everyone’s opinions are shared. There is one negative aspect about reading through the spam; some of the comments are overly flattering; I am often tempted to click the approve button. Here is an example of what the spammers write: “Fantastic goods from you, man. What Does That Even Mean | Wacky Pete’s Wicked & Wonderful Words of Wis-dumb I’ve understand your stuff previous to and you’re just extremely wonderful. I really like what you’ve acquired here, really like what you are stating and the way in which you say it. You make it enjoyable and you still care for to keep it wise. I cant wait to read much more from you. This is really a terrific What Does That Even Mean | Wacky Pete’s Wicked & Wonderful Words of Wis-dumb informations.” (The grammar is usually bad, but flattering, nonetheless!)

     I also love the fact that my posts are easily accessible to people, all over the world. I received my year-end review, which gave a breakdown of the different locations where my blog has been read. I am proud to say that I have covered six of the seven continents. (I guess I’m not good enough for the people living in Antarctica!)

     There are many wonderful memories over the past six months, but I will end this post here.  This is moving week, and I feel overwhelmed by everything that needs to be done.

Congratulations to the Florida Gators for winning the big bowl game over Ohio State!!!

First and foremost, I enjoy writing stories. I recently completed my first novel, and I successfully co-wrote a short film script, which won the grand prize in the words made easy competition.

  1. Feliz Año Nuevo Pedro!! Felicidades en tu post ciento noventa. Debes de estar muy orgulloso por tu logro. Para mi a sido un placer leer tu blog! Espero que continúes escribiendo!

    Thought you could use the practice before you get to LA, You’re Welcome!

    And you’re welcome for me being a follower of your blog, I know how much it means to you!

    I’ll let you get back to your packing, although, not sure why anyone would want to get back to packing since it sucks!

  2. Your welcome.., guess you gotta buy us drinks on Thursday! Without us there’s no you (I thinks that’s how it goes)

    Unlike you, my blog got an award for most consecutive days without a post. *I’m going to set a record*
