WordPress Anniversary (5 years)


Yep. It’s exactly what it looks like. Happy FIVE years 🙂

To commemorate this occasion here’s a list of some of my all-time favourite poetry from over the years (enjoy 🙂 ) :




Poetry, To Me

And Then There’s Me

A Date With You, Dear Reader (Part 1 – 4)

Transparency (Part 1 – 3)


“Speech! Speech! Speech!”

I’ve skipped over three of my blog anniversaries in the past because I don’t usually put much thought into it. Ask any of my friends, it’s the same way with any of my birthdays. But occasionally, I like to get into it a little; if only just a little.

Within five years I’ve managed to meet some truly remarkable people here. Some of which I have grown to call friends. They may not see me the same way, but that’s not the point. What’s important to me is the unseen connection we all have; the knowledge we share either through our respective talents or through what we say to each other.

My blog has changed over the years. Slowly morphing into an ideal representation of me. And the truth is; it’s not done yet; it will never be done. You may see me adopt a new style of poetry; a new form of story-telling; a new theme; all that good stuff. Because I love this blog. I love how it has helped shape me into who I am now, how it has allowed me to explore what truly matters to me (my core values). And most importantly, how I see the world around me.

Thank you. To everyone who followed me, liked, commented and shared any of my posts. You are the true MVPs.

Now I don’t have wine, or a wineglass to clink the occasion. But I DO have water; plenty of it. And true to form, I will gladly drink this 1-litre bottle of water next to me in celebration of what I never believed I could achieve five years ago. To my blog! And to you, for being undeniably awesome!
