Happy Blog Anniversary to Me!

09 Oct

On October 9, 2011 I posted my very first blog with this picture of me next to a Pepsi can.  It was just a couple of days that mommy had adopted and brought me home to the Hotel Thompson.  Underneath this picture, I wrote:

Hello my fellow friends!  I will rule that Pepsi can one day!  Can’t wait to blog my adventures.  Check back frequently for fun.  Smooches.

And as they say, “It’s all they wrote”.  I’ve been blogging every since, having fun, making great and wonderful friends and hopefully making everyone smile and laugh.  It’s been a long journey through lots of ups and downs.

Others have joined my adventure from the Hotel Thompson so this blog has grown with friends.

I’ve added trivia to my blog.  

I’ve added the Dear Bacon issues which are absolutely the highlight of my week.  (I LOVE getting pictures and letters from everyone – thank you – you make these Dear Bacon issues so popular!).

Journalist Rocky the Squirrel keeps us aware of all of the not so known holidays of the year.  He’s a great friend that hangs out in my magical back yard.  He’s often found knocking on the back door of the Hotel Thompson asking for cut of nuts.

Hemi and Mouse Girl highjack my page every so often.  I fuss but it’s all in great fun.

Bashful, Manny and Princess Coralena have been a great addition to the Hotel Thompson and my blog.  That Bashful of mine has turned into a wonderful international rolling stone traveling every where and recording his trips here.  Manny and Princess Coralena have come to live with us here and it’s so nice to hear them laughing down the halls.

And the biggest accomplishment I’ve had in two years… meeting so many wonderful and cherished friends from all over the world right here in blogville.

Without you, I would be talking to myself and well I do enough of that here at the Hotel Thompson – snorts.  I don’t think I can ever express just how much *YOU* have touched this little piggies life.  I guess you can say that you’ve helped my inner pig come out and play.  That means the world to me my friends.

Thank you so much.  Thank you for listening to my rambling, my piggy stories and adventures and stories of mom/dad.  This pig has a lot more to write about!

Here’s a toast to another awesome year full of adventures!

    Happy blogiversary dear Bacon. I look forward to your posts and you are a lot of fun!
    As you know I always wanted a pet piggie so you are my vicarious one. 🙂
    Also the crochet pattern you inspired has been a huge hit in the craft world with people downloading the pattern from my store at a consistent rate of about once per day since it opened.
    I know it isn’t “viral” but it is consistent and I am VERY pleased.
    Hogs and kisses.

      aaww thank you my Aunt Sharon!! I’m so glad your pattern has been a great hit – I know we loved what you did with it here at the Hotel Thompson. It’s so darn cute and you did a magnificent job as always in creating it. Mommy has the picture hanging up on our refrigerator – it’s that special to us. Live through me anytime my dear friend. I wish we were closer so I could bounce right over for a visit! XOXO – Bacon

      10/10/2013 at 9:28 am

      aawww piggy blushes. Thank you my friend. It’s hard to believe I was once upon a time that small. Mommy says that she took that when I was a mere three weeks old and had just come home from her and dad adopting me. I think it would take a 24 pack beside me for comparison now – snorts. XOXO – Bacon
