5th Blogversary Blog Party

By: | November 22, 2019 | Tags: , , ,

Welcome to My 5th Blogversary Party!

Did you know I celebrated five years of blogging on November 8?

Being able to serve the blogging community for half a decade is one of the highlights of my life.

Many of you know I am a teacher, and I live in Santa Clarita, California, near the site of the recent Saugus High School shootings.

I have received letters from concerned blogging friends from all over the country.

Although my brother, who teaches near Saugus High School, went into lockdown, I was not affected.

Thank you all from the bottom of my heart for your thoughtfulness, your concern, and your support of my blog for the last five years.

You are all welcome to celebrate with me.

In the comments section, you are encouraged to self-promote.

Introduce your blog to the other guests at the party. Tell the readers about your blog, and post a link to your favorite post, a recent post, your About page, your blog link, or anything you like.

If you are not already following Mostly Blogging, I like new subscribers too.

At today’s blog party, we are having a blogversary cake. Enjoy the cake and networking.

Note: At other blog parties, guests are encouraged to return and leave different links to articles in different comment boxes. You are welcome to return as often as you like and leave links.

I am hoping others will be able to find new blogs to read and new bloggers to connect with.


Guests, if you think others would enjoy the networking opportunities at our blog party, please share on your social media and blogs. The more guests at the party, the more networking opportunities for all of us.

    Many congratulations on the milestone, Janice. You’ve achieved so much and have become so successful in those five years. All down to your hard work and commitment to help the blogging community.

    In honour of your blogging anniversary, here’s a link to a post in which you appeared on my blog.


    Thanks for all you do for the blogging community.

    Hi Janice,
    congratulations on a five year milestone. May your next 5 years be at least twice as successful. I didn’t know you were in danger of those mass shootout. In fact I didn’t know it had happened as I don’t watch tv and obviously don’t lie in the US, but I’m glad you weren’t in danger.
    Too many people with guns…

      Hi Nikola,
      Thank you for coming by and congratulations me. I agree, 5 years is a milestone for sure! Thanks for your warm wishes on my future success.
      Your SEO tips are so helpful, are you sure you don’t want to leave a link?

    First, congratulations. Second, I hate it that teachers and students have to worry over school shootings. It’s insane.

    And now down to business: I have two offerings this week: A bit of medieval history (https://notesfromtheuk.com/2019/11/22/life-at-the-bottom-of-the-heap-in-medieval-england/) and a bit of British political lunacy (https://notesfromtheuk.com/2019/11/20/news-from-the-fringes-of-britains-election-a-midweek-bonus-post/).

      Hi Ellen,
      Thank you so much for your congratulations! I appreciate your loyal support of my blog these years.
      I appreciate your sympathy over our concerns about gun violence.
      Thanks as well for coming to my party and telling us about your blog posts. As you may know, I teach Medieval History.

      Hi Ingrid,
      What kind words! Thanks for wishing me a Happy Blogversary! Half a decade does indeed sound like quite an achievement.
      Thanks for your concern about my safety. Regarding my blog posts, it is always my pleasure to give information.
      Thanks for coming to my party!

      Hi Davida,
      “Woohoo” is right! 5 years is the really big whoop dee doo! Don’t you want to leave a link and tell us about your book blog?
      Thanks for coming to my blog anniversary party. Great to see you!

    • Janice Wald | at 9:05 pm

      Hi Carol,
      Welcome! Thanks for the warm congratulations. I agree 5-years is definitely a fine anniversary worth celebrating. Thanks for coming to my party and telling us about your blog.

    Happy Blogging Anniversary! So I found you on a blogging facebook group a short while ago and am delighted that you introduced me to these linky parties, which I had never heard of before. I have blogged for years but never monetized my blogs, I have a blogger and wordpress blog. I have since discovered a new blogging site which I just love because immediately when you join, you become monetized and paid in their very own cryptocurrency MHV. It is a new way to blog and network with other business marketers. Here is a link to markethive, my new blogging space! https://markethive.com/charmainemacdonald/blog/germancircususeshologramsinsteadofliveanimalsforacrueltyfreemagicalexperience

    Happy Anniversary Janice. 5 years is quite the accomplishment. I am a fairly new follower, but love the information you share as well as all you do to help others promote their blogs. You were a delightful find. Wishing you continued success.

    My blog serves up book reviews with a side order of food, family, and fun. Here is a recent book review that was well received. https://ginaraemitchell.com/review-the-meerkat-murders-by-rj-corgan/ I also send out a weekly Friday Finds newsletter where I present book suggestions, recipes, and a craft project or two. You can read a sample here: https://ginaraemitchell.com/friday-finds-november-22-2019/

      Hi Gina,
      You said you are a relatively new reader. I appreciate you joining my community. Someone once observed we have a “rockin’ group,” and I agree.
      Thank you for the kind compliments on my efforts to help the blogging community.
      Thanks as well for wishing me a happy anniversary.
      I appreciate you coming to my blog party and telling us about your blog.
