Another 9th of November has passed without Guylty realising the significance of the date. Well, or let’s say I am distracted by the much more important events of world history that always overshadow the 9th of November. (Reichskristallnacht in 1938, fall of the Berlin wall in 1989, to name but a few.) But it just so happens that yesterday this happened:
There you have it. Nine years of blogging on WordPress. Well, sort of. You can deduct about six months because initially there was no content on the blog, just a default page. Who would’ve thought that this would last so long – and garner so many kind readers and their much appreciated attention? I am still in denial that there are actually people regularly reading the nonsense I am spewing here. And I am not saying that to denigrate *you* but to make fun of myself! So, thanks are in order – to all readers past and present, my fellow bloggers who inspire me to pick up the topics they are writing about, the commentators who keep the conversation going, my blog role model and mentor Servetus, and the bloke who provides the news that I exploit for my nefarious blogging purposes. Thank you *blows kisses all around*
Keyword “significant events” – I haven’t made a separate post yet, but…
December FundRAiser is coming in 2021, too!
I have spent the best part of this afternoon sorting through the kindly gifted donations for our next fundraiser. And I have put together a package of 30+ auctions that will hopefully garner a generous donation for our preferred charity. Planning and organisation are on the way, including the now-customary fixed-price sale on Etsy, too. As previously, the fundraiser will stretch over several days. In order to allow for dispatch in time for the end-of-year festivities of your choice, I am proposing a five-day event that ends prior to the (first) postal cut-off point on 3rd December 2021. Which means that we will start Christmas/the Holidays early – from Saturday, 27 November to Wednesday, 1 December. How does that sound? Make sense? It would give me – and other donors who are dispatching their gifted auction items themselves – time to wrap up and send the parcels before international mail service deadlines. We may need to rename that fundraiser, though 😉. Suggestions on a postcard – or in the comments below. More info to come, soon!
