3rd Blogiversary!

Happy Birthday!

Blog Established: 8, July 2013

Unbelievable. Yesterday was year number 3 since the creation of this blog.

What an amazing 36 months it’s been. Posts come and go (perhaps not as often as they once did), but what made this whole blogging experience so amazing was your contribution as readers and followers.

A massive thanks for keeping up with my crazy posts, commenting, liking and sharing.

I’m always thinking of what to write about next; and whilst real-life duties take away from the time spent writing, I’m still looking forward to future posts.

Thank you once again for your loyalty and support!

New post coming soon …

(Now where’s that birthday cake?)

After much brooding and thought, at 17:45pm on 8 July, I created a WordPress account, wrote my first post and A Tolkienist’s Perspective was born. Continue reading

Celebrating One Year of Blogging!

Header (One Year)

It’s been exactly one year since I wrote my first post for this blog (‘The Journey Begins!’).

Back then I was uncertain how things would develop and I certainly couldn’t see myself still writing about Tolkien 12 months later.
