Hi, My Name is ...

So, it turns out that tomorrow is my Bloggerversary. I have been blogging for 7 years. Shew, where has the time gone?

I've got to know quite a lot of people thru my blogging, more so in the early days when the community was smaller. Bloggers tend to come and go, after 7 years, I imagine, it is quite an achievement to still be here. And to not be scarce on top of it. The longest breaks I tend to have are while I'm away, and I always make up for it when I get back :)

But the internet has changed and grown in that time too. And after 7 years of blogging pretty anonymously, I thought I'd introduce myself to celebrate this anniversary. It seems the way things are going, it's easier to relate to an actual real-life person than a pseudonym and an icon. So here I am.

Hello, my name is Phillipa and this is my blog :)








There is a snippet of my life in pics, the ones you haven't seen, the ones with me in them. (For a change these photos actually link somewhere ... to the relevant posts from when they were taken within the blog)

So, I'm still gonna stick with nicknames for the people I write about, but here I am, this is me. It's nice to finally meet you.

Haha, Hi ladies! I think I've under-estimated how important having a face for the name is over the last few years.

@The Chantal - thanks for saying I look young for my age ... it's no longer a burden, although I used to get quite frustrated, constantly being asked for ID in my youth! But there are plenty of grey hairs popping up these days o_0 Haha.

Oh my, I have been reading your blog for about five years and wow I am so glad to put a face to a name/blog. You do look so young and innocent and very pretty indeed.

Keep up the good "blogging"
