CM is 7!

Yay for me.  Maybe 2020 hasn’t been a total loss.

According to WP, I’ve been blogging for 7 years.  In some ways, it seems like I just started blogging yesterday; but sometimes it feels like I’ve been on WP forever.

It’s been a bit of a bumpy journey, but I’m glad I stayed the course.  For those who weren’t with me in 2013 and 2014, you may find my earliest posts by going to the right side-bar and clicking on Archives, then scroll down to August, 2013 or September, 2013  You’ll be glad you did (or, at least, I’ll be glad you did).

I think my writing was better in 2013 and 2014; however, my photography has hopefully improved.  I didn’t start using my own pictures until January, 2015, when my daughters gave me a new camera for Christmas.  You’ll note one of those early pictures in the photo at the head of this post – my famous CM Smiley enjoying an abundance of candy.

In December, 2015, I couldn’t resist using the Smiley again for my Christmas photo:

I updated the original CM Smiley photo in 2018 when I got a better camera (and a wee bit more skill):

I don’t know which I’ve enjoyed more – using the Smiley figure or eating the props after the photo shoot.

Of course, not all photographs use props that can be eaten, but they’re enjoyable nonetheless:


Whether the weather allows you to enjoy the beautiful outdoors or convinces you to partake in the comforts of home, may you all  have a wonderful weekend!

  5. We have finally gotten a break in the weather. It’s cool and it’s dry and there’s a hint of fall in the air. Isn’t it fun seeing your photography improving? If you have an eye, you find a way.


  6. Happy 7th anniversary, CM! Love the Smiley photos. Keep shooting! LOL!(*´▽`*)
