I posted a graphic of my 11th anniversary here at WordPress.com a couple of days ago and I feel the need to clarify something in regards to it.
While I signed up with WordPress.com 11 years ago I have blogged on other platforms such as Yahoo 360, Multiply, Blogger and Tumblr over those years. Two years ago I made the change from Tumblr to WordPress due in part to the acquisition of Tumblr by Yahoo which is now owned by Verizon.
My transition to full-time blogging with WordPress.com is one I have not regretted. This is a great community of people to be among and there seems to be a level of “maturity but fun” that I enjoy here.
So with that being said 11 years is a long time on the Internet because so many things change. Yahoo 360 and Multiply are no longer and other services have changed in that time. I don’t mind paying a little for some advanced services here to assure that WordPress.com remains viable, independent and stable. I also like that they do all the heavy lifting for me so all I have to do is create and share.
Here is to more years of WordPressing On!
