Happy Birthday To Me!

Happy Boomdee Birthday

Thank you so much for joining me here this year.  I’m not sure what I expected, yet I’m still amazed at what fun it’s been.    My goal last February was to document my craft projects, share family stories, have a place to nurture my love of using a camera, find people with similar interests and to always be positive.

It's been a Riot

It’s been all that, and so much more.  I could have not imagined the friendships that would grow and blossom through sharing the written word. That’s just been awesome!

Fun Friends

What a year it’s been!

  • 15,656 views (awesome!)
  • 3,649 comments (love it!)
  • 72 countries (neat!)
  • 191 friends clicked ‘I Love Boomdeeadda’ (WOW)
  • 224 posts (no kidding?)


One of my favourite things is going back to old posts just to read the comments. They’re almost like a mini-post within a post.  I think WordPress should start tracking statistics for ‘LOL’ and the smiling face 😀 too.   I really laugh when we get so off track and I smile when you share your wisdom and life. Thank you for being so generous.

The Boomdee Crew

I just love spending time with you all!

Happy Boomdee Birthday

  1. A belated Happy Birthday! Congrats on a very successful blogging year.
    Just wanted to let you know, I am reading along with you, but my “like” button is on the fritz… works sometimes, but not others. Not working today, but sending my “likes” via comments. 🙂


    1. Hi Kerri, thank you for your nice message, I really appreciate that. WP has been very weird over the last couple of days. It logged me out one day and I couldn’t find the page to log back in. They’ve made some changes and some bookmarks no longer work, it’s a bit of a panic. I have noticed the ‘Like’ button not working too. Luckily, the fun outweigh’s the cliches 😀


  2. Very Belated Birthday wishes…. I’ll help you clear up after the party 😉
    I adore the post and the vintage vibe. I also adore you Boomdee so keep on blogging!


    1. mwaaaa! blowing kisses across the pond, over the sweet little chickens and right to you! Thank you for the Bloggy Birthday cheer PJ. I do try my best to be adorable 😀 although I don’t think I could do the splits like that little vintage lady up there, LOL. The images are from the NYC Public Library and are totally free.

We both laughed all over again. He say’s you’re a witty one, I agree. Thanks for the wishes….and just incase they are counting 😀 boom!

  8. Congratulations!! What a big day. Isn’t blogging such good therapy? I would say that you are a very thoughtful, encouraging blogger and I appreciate all your sweet words. I know I am not alone when I say that. Much more success in the years to come, Boomdee!


    1. Blogging is good therapy and a fun distraction. I seem to get a lot more projects done too, maybe this sharing ideas thing has some validity, ha.

      Thanks for your kind words and cheering me on. I know some people write for themselves, I think the all the visiting that goes on after the post is the best part. Thank you for being part of the fun!


    1. Hi Clowie, if I had a big fluffy tail like yours, it’d be wagging it really fast. Thank you for your kind words and for being part of my week. I always look forward to your stories. I know I have a new one to read today :D. Cheers to blogger friendships!!
