Sad anniversary

Blogging has been a big part of my life since I discovered it. This week I found out that two of my favorite bloggers Ms. Warrior ( https://verbalcreation.home.blog/ ) has left, and Huguette ( https://huguetteantoun.com/ ) declare few days ago that she too is leaving the blogosphere 🙁

Today I receive this notification from WordPress

I’ve been blogging longer than this but if you have read my blogging story: Where it began, you’ll understand why I don’t have much followers or entries in my blog.

This anniversary is for my reader account.

I know they have good reasons to leave, but with two favorite bloggers leaving, I’m feeling melancholic about today’s achievement.

  1. Aww some people come …. some people go ….. I feel melancholic too Jessica ….. been following both of them too ….

    It reminds me of life ….. we may never know when we will see those whom we love again ….. and so we take nothing for granted …. we take no one for granted …..
    We live …. we love ….. with all that is within us …. and that always makes the huge difference…..

  2. Dear Jess, yes, is sad but I guess when is not enjoyable anymore people need to find that perfect balance to make it enjoyable again! We don’t like doing things just to do them right? We want to also enjoy what we’re doing!
    I’m sure Huguette will find the way and she’ll be back, unless she did not changed her mind already and will not leave 🤪 (honestly what I’m hopping for 🤪😉).
    It is a great achievement my dear! Wow! More than 10 years of blogging! I guess everyone should follow your advices because I don’t think is easy to reach such an achievement!
    Congratulations again 🎊🎉🎈

  3. Ohhhh look who sneaked around with 10 years of blogging and still sad 😁😁😁 come on now cheer up! I’m not dead, am I??? I’m actually everywhere and let’s hope I will be back here also to keep teasing you and annoying you 😁😁 it makes me happy actually 🤪
    Cheer up and congratulations! 😊😊😊💕💕

  4. Same here. Three friends of mine have left, either temporarily or they are rarely active and it’s just sad. But they might come back? Who knows?

  5. Congratulations, Jess! Oh, my! I know Huguette. I am saddened by her leaving the blogosphere. I have known great bloggers who left the blogosphere too and I felt really sad.

  6. Hey Jessica! Congratulations✨👏 Wow 10 years is not easy. But it reminds our age is the saddest part isnt it 🙄, God is so cruel with this age factor 😁, Huguette and ur friend leaving is indeed sad but they need more time on real world than blogging world. Let’s move on, people leave in real and in blogging too. Happy Blogging ✨☺️✍️

      1. 🙄😁 Did i mentioned 🤔 we are young as kids. Let me know who talks about age here. I’ll take care of dem 😉💪

  7. Congratulations, Jessica. I am always saddened when bloggers that I’m friends with leave. However, some leave and never say goodbye . Feel blessed that they had thought well enough of their friends to bring closure.

  8. Congratulations Jessi.
    I understand people often tend to find it difficult to balance their personal and social life..
    Don’t worry you keep doing what you like..

  9. Congratulations. Don’t be sad though it’s natural when your favourite bloggers leave but than we have to move on. Wish the readers intensity and your hopes make them join again. But you keep moving ahead with your wonderful work .

    1. Thank you. 🙂

      As for Huguette… she said she needs time to pursue other interest. She will be making one more post before leaving. I look forward but also I kind of not looking forward to it… 🙁

  10. Congratulations on making a decade here!😊
    Doesn’t matter if it’s sad or gloomy, it’s a great feat..hope you bring them back of you could urge them somehow.

    1. Thanks Samyak. But no, I don’t really want to stop them. There’s a life outside blogosphere that only they know and both bloggers I’m mentioned seem to have a pretty good reason for leaving. Just sad. Hope you stay for many more years, I don’t like seeing great bloggers go…

      1. No I’m not going anytime soon for I don’t have that “good” reason to go leave it amidst. You don’t have to do as well for I’ll lose that eternal support I get from you. Hope you are having a good time here😊
