Kikuyumoja – 7th Blog Anniversary

This blog turns 7 by the end of this month – and after 1,041 posts and 3,474 approved comments to this date, some inevitable moments of blog depression as well as numerous glorious times, and I’d just like to say THANK YOU to all of you out there!

To celebrate this blog anniversary, I’ve made this little drawing for you:

Oh, and I’ve also updated the blog template to a responsive, mobile-first and Retina-display optimized version which may at first be a bit unusual with its huge (web)font and maximum white space. But it will also look great on mobile devices without any additional plugins (WP-Touch still activated though).

We’ve come a long way with WordPress during all these years and I actually owe them a lot, including a few paid and unpaid jobs that I got thanks to WordPress. Big up to everyone at WordPress.org!

To all other bloggers, writers, commentators, Facebookers, GPlusers, Twitteritos and Tumblebloggers out there: please keep on publishing your own unique content and let’s celebrate diversity online. The internet probably is one of the greatest developments ever, has already influenced so many lives and is a direct mirror of what we do, and sometimes don’t do. Sharing what’s on your mind is also very much appreciated on my side and one of the driving forces that kept this blog going over the years. Also, I am more than glad that fellow blogger Mzeecedric kicked me to starting my own blog back in 2005 (probably after trolling his as a commentator). Asante sana, mate!

Everyone, thanks again for stopping by. Cheers!
