Happy Anniversary

A post of blatant self-promotion

When I just returned home from running an errand, I found the above notification in my WordPress feed. Apparently, it was six years ago on June 25, 2016, that I started my blogging adventure by registering Christian’s Music Musings with WordPress. Usually, I’m not the type of person who likes to talk about their achievements but what the heck!

When I started writing this blog six years ago, I had no idea whether I would stick with it. In fact, other than the thought of covering my favorite topic – and, yes, dare I say it, passion – I didn’t have much of a plan. In case you’re curious, here’s my inaugural post.

A typical post in the early days would look something like this or like that. No embedded videos or photos. No embedded playlists. Just a feature image and a bunch of text paragraphs. Don’t get me wrong – while I find incorporating multimedia adds to the experience, there’s nothing wrong with plain posts.

Apart from having become more comfortable with writing and getting more traffic, I feel the most rewarding aspect is engaging with fellow bloggers. Not only do I learn a good deal about music and new artists and bands or music acts who are new to me, but most importantly it’s fun. And it’s the latter what it should all be about.

I’d like to use this opportunity to thank my fellow bloggers and other visitors for reading and commenting. I love comments, so please keep ’em coming! Of course, this post wouldn’t be complete without at least one embedded media asset – especially after I kind of bragged about it!

      1. LOL no. I looked at Hans as my first blogger I really watched….I thought everyone did 2-3 posts a day! I stopped that after a few months. That was way too much for me

    1. Dank Dir! Der Start des Blogs vor sechs Jahren war eine ziemlich spontane Entscheidung. Es war mir nicht klar wie regelmaessig ich zum bloggen kommen wuerde.

      Musik ist definitif mein Lieblingsthema, aber die Schreiberei kann auch ganz schoen zeitaufreibend sein und zuweilen die Geduld meiner Familie testen.

      Insofern hast Du vollkommen Recht. Ich kann nicht garantieren, dass der Blog auf Ewigkeit existieren wird. Aber so lange es ihn gibt habe ich auch weiterhin vor so viel wir moeglich Spass zu haben!
