Acts of “Bloggery”…over 2012…(aka “Confessions of a Blogger”)!

My name is Tony…and, I’m a blogger!

8Blogging sucks (sign)

Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change

(about my bloggery),

The courage to change the things I can

(with the timing of my bouts of bloggery),

And the wisdom to know the difference

(between “life” and “bloggery”)!



I woke up this morning (yes, just too “old” these days to have not slept)…wondering whether I could manage the first post of 2013…or…

…go on a New Year’s Day “cruise” up the Bosphorus – with my family!

The THING is...

My inbox was full (“choka” yani…) of those “2012 in Review” posts that those lovely “happiness engineers” (still love that job title) at WordPress have been preparing for us blog-heads over the past 24-hours.

At first, I thunked to meself, “no” it’s just too much to look at all of them!

Put family “first”! Must fight the “urge”….


I am a simple man…with many guilty pleasures“…and an issue or three with impulse control!

Idiot (inside)


I started to “read”…“the girls” (and Dexter) were, after all, still asleep!

It is quite addictive…it is…shirously!


It was interesting to look at all the stats from some of my favourite bloggers…even found a few posts I had “missed”.

Those happiness engineers at WP had pulled out a couple of “tricks” that worked really well.

For example, they suggested an “excerpt” for the “ready-made post” they had gifted me:

About 55,000 tourists visit Liechtenstein every year. This blog was viewed about 310,000 times in 2012. If it were Liechtenstein, it would take about 6 years for that many people to see it. Your blog had more visits than a small country in Europe!

What the heck did my blog have to do with Liechtenstein? Never even been there…maybe I should, now!


Put family “first”! Must fight the “urge”….


Ne se….


The Bosphorus…and family “won”!

…as they shouldalways!


Bad news

But, the little buggar…sorry, blogger on my left shoulder…kept whispering I had to “do” somethink!

Take carehave a wonderful “day off”!

I will…

  1. I wish you that in 2013 you continue to blog and enjoy even more the joys of life in all possible ways.
