Friday August 31 - 2007 -
My first blog was posted on August 31 in 2006. For a very simple reason. One year after I may say: I do not regret this step into the Cyber World at all. Never have I met so many interesting and genuine people from all over the Globe in such a short time. I’m overwhelmed by all the nice, wise, cheerful, interesting and witty comments given to my posts during this year. And all the fun I’ve been so lucky to take part in. I’ve done 272 posts in my first year. And received several thousands comments.
During this first year Anna, my wife, and I have had the pleasure to meet in blood and flesh two of my blogger friends, with their respective “better half”, RennyBA and Mrs Lifecruiser.
They are all unique persons and personalities. You can read about our meetings in several of my posts.
On this occasion, it is very hard to highlight some specific comments or blogs I’ve read.
Butt, I do think Mrs Lifecruiser’s idea of Cyber Cruise is worth a special gift – A x-mas card – a real one stamped from Santa’s Post Office in Dröbak. The Cyber Cruise – still going on has been very serious, informative, creative, high quality and at the same time: Fun, fun and fun. My anniversary gift to all Cuber Cruisers and readers: I plan to post from Buenos Aires/Argentina – and from Holland and Riga –
I still have two more x-mas cards, with the stamp from Santa’s Post Office. When in the Office, I asked for one stamp for Norway, one for Europe and one for The World. Well,
as the first one goes to Sweden (Europe), then there is one for Norway, and one for the World left. So how to choose? I did not think twice. I made a simple decision:
Go back from my first post. http://toraa.blogspot.com/2006/08/oslo-august-31-2006-this-morning-i.html. Then look for the first comment from Norway and the first from the World.
Guess what? The result was revealed in my debut post:
Here it is: RennyBA – Norway and Expat Traveler – The World and Vancouver, Canada.
Next time I need other criteria for premiums. Maybe: animals, flowers, history, wildlife, architecture, sport, family, friends, kids, nature, boats, literature, movies, leisure, food, macro, daily life …. I write all the themes on a sheet of paper, put them in a Jar, and ask Anna to pick up 3 themes. For each theme there will be blogger names, also to be picked from different, smaller jars. Let’s see if it’s gonna be you next time.
Thank you all for a wonderful year - it's been like a never ending Samba. So do it then;))
PS. The winners will receive their cards in their respective snail-mail boxes.
