Today marks our 10 year blogiversary! And it’s a Tuesday! (Will there be a Wednesday post? Probably not this week… Still fishing for compliments…)
It started with a grumble.
Early posts had a lot of octopus and hot library guy memes (not together though!) We started with a lot of small frequent posts, posting daily or more!
Our deliberately controversial posts were especially popular.
We got a lot of readers from the Get Rich Slowly fora.
But times have changed… while we post regularly, it’s only on a M/W/F/Saturday schedule, and not daily. We still have Money Mondays . We used to alternate Fridays Ask the Grumpies with Google Questions, but we now get more Ask the Grumpies questions and Google has made it harder to find search terms from wordpress that come to our blog, so we mostly only do the advice column. Saturdays are for link love. Wednesdays are for everything else.
We used to be a bit more balanced with food and book etc. posts coming at regular intervals, but now we’re generally at most a week ahead of blogging instead of months, at least for Wednesday posts. That leads to a bit more bunching of posts, I think. Life has gotten busy!
Blogging is correlated with me adding too many parentheticals to my writing (like this one).
How long will we keep going? I don’t know! Occasionally it seems more like a chore than a hobby, but we’d miss our readers (especially you, yes YOU), and sometimes it’s really useful to be able to just ask the world something to see what falls out.
Do you have a favorite Grumpy Rumblings post? What do you hope to see in the future? Praise and congratulate us! We are totally fishing for compliments!
