Happy Birthday to my Blog!

It’s my blog’s first birthday today. Has it really been a year since I published my first post? Anyway, I thought I’d celebrate by sharing some of the more notable posts that have been published over the past 12 months. Here’s a selection:

A Blog is Born (my first post ever)

General Knowledge – How Much is Enough? (the all-time most popular post)

Learning Your ABCs – The Interpreter’s Languages, Part 1 (one of the most commented posts)

The Interpreter Diaries go a-blogging on IAPTI (the least-read post)

Half a Kingdom (my own personal favourite)

Only the stats, Ma’am

A visit to my statistics page tells me that the Interpreter Diaries has logged 46 posts, 515 comments, 1167 followers and just under 70,000 visits over the past year. And there’s also this lovely map of the countries showing recent views by country (wow!).

My thanks to all my readers, colleagues, friends and students who have made this past year such a rollicking ride for me, not to mention a valuable learning experience.  Here’s to another great year!

  1. Happy birthday and congratulations. Keep up the great work! BTW — is there an RSS feed button on your blog? I don’t see it, but perhaps I need a new prescription. I’d love to add your blog to my RSS feed. Now, have some cake and champagne!

    • Thanks for the birthday wishes, Judy :). I’m a big fan of your blog too!

      To answer your question, the RSS feed button for this page is right at the very bottom of the homepage, on the left. You have to scroll waaaay down past the end of the posts. It’s not such a great set-up, and I will have to keep that in mind when I give my blog its much-needed facelift. I’ll try to make the RSS feeds more accessible.

      See you around the blogosphere!

  2. ¡Happy birthday, Michelle!!!!!! One year? I enjoy your blog writing so much that it feels as if you’ve been around for many years now 😉
    Keep writing, please!

  3. Congratulations! It’s not easy keeping up a successful blog, especially if your audience is automatically a bit restricted, as is the case if you write for translaters and interpreters. Well done, I will keep reading this year, too.
