WordPress tells me that Beautiful Railway Bridge is two today. It is on WordPress – I switched from Blogger.com on 23 November, 2010 – but we are in fact three and a quarter (and a bit). Beautiful Railway Bridge was born on Bloomsday (June 16), 2009, when I still lived in Seattle.
I want to thank everyone who has read, liked, commented on, and subscribed to this blog, and your blogs, which are windows on the world. In particular, thanks to the regulars with whom I can have a good blather (you know who you are). It means a lot that I’m writing to and for real people, rather than the howling ghosts of cyberspace. Part of the reason for persisting so long must be that the pleasure of blogging – having your very own soapbox – is meaningless without people crazy enough to listen to you.
Beautiful Railway Bridge still has an outpost on Blogger. Beautiful Railway Bridge at Blogger is a gallery of my art and photography, where I will eventually post everything that comes under those categories. Just the images, though, and there’s still a backlog to post. Blogger has better synchronicity with Google+ and the blog is what they call “dynamic” – it’s a lot easier to see the images in total. The downside is the corporate Google look.
So thanks for supporting Beautiful Railway Bridge, wherever you found it! I hope you enjoy reading the blog as much as I do writing it.
