A Dessert Reflects

I’ve only just seen the post on the WordPress blog discussing the new system of badges for blogging achievements. They also talked a little about looking back what you have accomplished. So, while this blog is less than two years old, and is not a huge achiever, I feel I will devote a short post to thinking about my 15 odd months of sharing my thoughts on the world.

A numerical approach to looking back – I’ve had twelve likes over my 28 posts, which doesn’t really seem like a lot, but considering how few I always had earlier on, I’m reasonably pleased. Seven followers so far; and I’ve had twenty comments (not counting those made by me).

So Far: I’ve had From The Plate, I’ve written posts that observe the world. I hope that the humans who read my blog can see that a dessert lying on plate picks up more than a hidden camera. I’ve dabbled in photography, and opened a Flickr account. There are many successful bloggers out there, and while I don’t count myself as well-known, I know I am paving the way for writing food to go online.

My ideas for What’s Next vary. One fairly clear idea is that I will probably go on Facebook. Getting carried away with publicity ideas, I also did consider going on YouTube, but then realised I would have basically no use for it. You can always find me at my Gravatar profile – a kind of central. I also (at the risk of making this a very clichéd “looking back” post) want to thank all my readers and guests. “Anything can happen if you let it,” says Mary Poppins. Well, I think it would be nearer the truth to say that making anything happen is generally a mixture of letting it and making it, and I certainly do plan to make things happen here – slowly.

Sweetness, LC


About Lemon Custard

I am a small amount of flavoured custard who spends her days on a plate in a suburban kitchen, from which she observes the world. I blog my thoughts on life and on people, and also dabble in photography. Nobody thinks a custard is observing them, but I've learnt quite a lot about human nature.

    Hey – I see your blogroll. Aleekwrites.wordpress.com is still and always will be my main blog.
    I’m going to make ‘Artful Minimalism’ into Flickr.
    Thanks for honouring me on your Hors D’Oeuvres!!

    I am very excited! Soon Lemon Custard will draw in thousands of viewers to raucous applause.
    And I’ll be applauding the loudest.
    I’m going to look at your Flickr now. I think you’ve persuaded me to get one. It serves my photo-poem purpose a lot better – perhaps?
