Three is the Magic Number

I am 3, the blog that is, so its time for a look back at what's been three years of rubbish.

Yes, this thing has been going since July 2007, a time when people still updated their MySpace profile, smokefree legislation was introduced in England though it was hard to create smoke as a lot of it was underwater and a cat called Oscar is found to have an uncanny ability to predict when residents of a nursing home were about to die (Personally if I lived in that home I'd never sit down, just in case).

I'm not entirely sure what possessed me to set up a Blogger account that evening or to start off with a brief post a few days later, I guess it was the need for a personal space to write, create and to think things through. So within a short period of time this space soon filled with crazy scrawls to become my own personal online nutty room. I didn't think of it as self promotion but I suppose having a blog is in some way an act of self promotion.

I recently went through my feeds recently and found a large number no longer exist, out of the first handful of blogs I followed only three are still there and of them only one updates regularly, so there is a short average lifespan, people move away in various directions and for different reasons.

There has been change over the three years, now I'm just shy instead of being really shy and I've learnt things like never agree to appear on a trans documentary for Sky television as it will be embarrassingly repeated as often as E4 repeat Friends.

And now I feel another chapter has begun with an uncertain future.

Thank you for visiting (for more than a few seconds) or reading via a feed reader like Google Reader including the many I do not know about.

Here's The Magic Number by De La Soul to sign off.


  1. Congrats on the big 3.0 :-) Are blogging years like dog years? Do they go by quicker? I think I know what you mean about high turnover, you stumble across a blog, read for a bit and then it... ummm.. kinda dries up. Shame, but there you go.

    Still, life would be that little bit duller if you gave up blogger. The gag about the cat didn't half make me chuckle.

  2. Congrats on making it three years, here's to the next three :)


  3. Its been a good read over three years Lucy - I suspect all of us have changed, and grown, in that time. We do.


  4. An awful lot can happen over three years for sure but how do say, L, your blog reflects your personality that makes it fun to read.
    Congratulations. Regards Caroline (Mc1)

  5. Congrats on reaching three!

    And OMG De La Soul. Three Feet High and Rising is still one of may favorite albums!!!

    I love it!

  6. Happy 3rd Birthday
    May life get better & better for you.
