Happy Anniversary


I received a notification yesterday from WordPress that advised me that I have been writing this blog for 11 years. Although I sometimes wonder what to write about I intend to keep going for the foreseeable future. Thank you for reading along.

Meanwhile, the day went on with regular jobs. I did 4 loads of washing, ironed and folded everything, stripped and remade the bed, swept all of the floors and made another batch of spreadable butter. When I cooked the rice for dinner I did extra and have 2 more batches in the freezer.

Tomorrow is another day…………………..

Would You Believe?


I was amazed to realise that it is 3 years ago that I began writing this blog.

3rd birthday

Delving into the records has revealed the following statistics:

I have written 699 posts so this will make make a nice, round 700.  Not a bad effort in 3 years.

There have been 104,013 views of my blog and 2,356 comments in total.

This is not a huge number when compared to some very popular blogs.  However, I made a conscious decision when I began writing that it would not be for the number of followers, views or comments.  Organised Castle was essentially my diary.  It is about living a simple, sustainable life.  In keeping with that goal I was not going to have a blog which was cluttered with widgets, links and advertisements.  The look of the blog is how I live my life.

I am thrilled that so many of you from Australia and overseas keep coming back to read and comment.  I love sharing my thoughts and look forward to continuing the journey.

Thank you.
