September 14th 2006 - September 14th 2008

Hurray! Today is the 2nd birthday of my blog. It's a big day for me and I'm so proud of this little success…the fact that I could continue blogging (almost) every day!

Since starting this blog I have had over 20,000 visitors and I have made 700 posts. I'm so thankful to have met many great friends from all over the globe, you and you and you.....

To keep up a good friendship means a lot for me and that's why I want to say thank you to all of my loyal visitors. Without your supportive comments I would not have come this far.

And now I'm also happy to announce an unexpected Birthday gift I got from a beautiful blogger friend of mine: Michele, the Rocky Mountain Girl. She gave me this wonderful award and I am grateful. She said to me: "I really do love your blog". Thank you so much Michele for this gift and your kind compliment. I'm honored to receive this from you and do you know what, I love your blog too and love to see all your beautiful and refreshing photos, even though sometimes they make a little bit homesick for the mountains. I'm a mountain girl too, but from a place far away over the ocean.

And I had a hard time deciding whom I will pass this award to, because there are so many great blogs that I love. I'm sure all of you, my friends, deserve this award!
I’m going to pass this on to:

Finding Life's Enchantments; Her Blog is so enchanting with every visit I do!

Lynn's excellent nature photos!

my Swiss blog friend in Darfur with a great writing style and always interesting stories to tell!

Vaggelis Vlahos, don't miss excellent photography from Greece!

DianeCA, an American women, blogging about her life and happy marriage in Norway

Congratulations my friends and a big toast to the next two blog years to come! Prosit…Cheers… Skoal…Salute!

Hello Susanne,

First of all congratulations to your two years of blogging. Secondly, I am ashamed with my two and a half years of blogging and "only" some 280 posts against your 700. And thirdly, thank you for the award. I had decided (early August when I messed up my blog) just to mention awards put not to put them on the sidebar anymore. But this one, I will definitely put it for everybody to see.

Talk about it I will a bit later, because I have to prepare for a big trip I start in Darfur tomorrow. So, it might be a day or two before I talk about it.

I am very touched and again thank you or "Merci vielmal".

Take care and don't get drunk celebrating your blog's anniversary.

Hi zd,
Thanks for visiting my blog and for the best wishes and also to become a fan of my simple photography, very much appreciated!

Susanne49 said...

Hallo Peter,

don't worry, don't hurry at all, that's fine... I know you have other priorities in your life than just blogging! I'm honored that you will put up this award on your blog, against your own rules. That means a lot to me. "Merci vielmal" too!:-)
