Two years ago today I started Catherine, Caffeinated.
You can read the blog post from that day—I held a competition for some coffee to mark the occasion—by clicking here. A lot has happened since February 1st 2010, writing wise, and I’m pretty sure none of it would’ve happened without this little blog. So Happy Birthday, Catherine, Caffeinated! You really deserve the cake I’m going to have today on your behalf…
Other than posting the above picture of birthday cake today, I thought I’d share links to the Top 10 Most Popular Posts and Pages Ever on Catherine, Caffeinated.
I am not even kidding. This the most popular post ever on this blog with 4,554 views to date. I’m trying not to take it personally.
At least it’s second, I suppose. And newly re-organized.
3. About Me
Who doesn’t love a good “About” blog page, eh? I definitely do, although that may just be because I’m nosey.
A golden oldie. No migraines guaranteed.
Before I self-published, this is what I wanted to know above all else: how long will this take?
This post got me into all sorts of adventures: newspaper interviews, national radio, purple Excel graphs…
Again, bit of a weird one. But apparently lots of people needed a reason to suffer through RTÉ’s dismal attempt at The Hills-style reality TV. Wait—that was a bit of an insult to The Hills…
The most recent post to make it into this list, it hit a nerve with exasperated self-publishers of PODs. “No, Mum. I’m not surprised that they didn’t have my book in Waterstones…”
Including a few of my thrown together stock photo covers. Woo-hoo!
It warms my icy heart that this has sneaked its way into the Top 10. Did I tell you I got the super-deluxe-extra-special-two-hours-of-new-special-features-encased-in-a-snazzy-red-tin-and-comes-with-a-movie-poster Ultimate Trilogy edition on blu-ray for Christmas? YEAH I DID. I can practically smell your jealousy.
Here’s hoping that this day next year I’ll be gearing up to celebrate a third birthday without any Why Did I Even Start This Thing?-type resentment having set in.
Also, I know that lots of you lurk around this blog without ever saying hi, so why not say it today? Reveal yourself! We don’t bite. And it’s this blog’s birthday after all! And regular comment-leavers, you’re not off the hook either. Say hello! Stop me from all this exclamation mark abuse!
Thanks for reading!
