Celebrating My Blog’s Fifth Year: Supporting My Blog On Social Media

Over the past five years, thousands of people have supported my blog in one form or another on Social Media.  In the Spring of 2019, Google Plus shut down for the last time … and, as a result, I was no longer able to share the posts with my friends on Google Plus, so I had to start sharing it with my friends on LinkedIn.  Last year, at around this time, I said I would share my posts with my friends on LinkedIn at some point during my blog’s fifth year … and, boy, was I right!  I am now sharing my posts to my followers on LinkedIn.  Of course, I’m still sharing my posts to my friends on Facebook and Twitter.

I have 657 friends on Facebook, 528 followers on Twitter and 537 friends on LinkedIn.  180 people are following my blog here on WordPress.com.

My posts have been shared on Social Media 387 times over the past five years.  It has been shared on Facebook 299 times … and it has been shared on Twitter 43 times.

Next time, I will talk about liking my blog posts.

In honor of my blog’s fifth year, I would like to show you five blog posts that I wrote down on or around August 14th in previous years …

Celebrating My Blog’s Fifth Anniversary: Joseph’s longest-running followers

As of today, my blog has been followed by 173 people.  Now, today, as I continue to celebrate my blog’s fifth anniversary, I’m going to tell you about my blog’s longest-running followers.  Again, I apologize in advance if these statistics confuse you a little bit, so I will do my best to break these statistics up for you guys in a clear manner.

When it comes to people who are following my blog on WordPress.com, the longest-running follower on there is Kendell F. Person.  He has been following my blog for four years and four months.

Six of my followers are following my blog via e-mail.  Now, half of my followers have been able to follow it longer than anyone else via e-mail … and they have done is for four years and 11 months.  Now, Timothy McGrogan started following my blog via e-mail on August 30, 2014 … and Jennifer Buzzatto and Sheryl Papakie started following my blog via e-mail on August 26, 2014.

Now, at this point in time, it’s hard for me to say exactly who has been following my blog the longest.  Right now, it’s a toss-up between Jennifer Buzzatto and Sheryl Papakie.  They both started following my blog on August 26, 2014.

Next time, I will tell you how many words I have written in my blog posts over the past five years.  The statistics may surprise you a little bit.

In honor of my blog’s fifth year, I’d like to show you five blog posts that I wrote down on or around July 29th in previous years …

Happy 45th Birthday, Michael Spicer!

Today, I would like to wish a terrific person named Michael Spicer a happy 45th birthday.  He is both my friend and my neighbor.  Michael is one of the classiest people I have ever known … and he’s also a “super” person.  On July 10, 2019, we wore our Zombie Hunter shirts outdoors for a few minutes that evening.  I would like to thank him for turning me into a better neighbor and a better friend.

Today is Michael Spicer’s 45th birthday. On July 10, 2019, we wore our Zombie Hunter shirts outdoors for a few minutes that evening. Michael is both my neighbor and my friend.

In recent years, Michael and I were able to wear the blue Dragon Ball Z shirts and the grey Superman shirts outdoors.

Happy 45th birthday, Michael Spicer!

Next time, I will let you revisit a post from my blog’s fifth year … and it will be from July of 2019.

Say hello to Dom Lazzini

During the second half of my blog’s fifth year, I will give you chances to revisit some of my past blog posts … and, throughout the month of July, I will give you chances to revisit some posts from my blog’s fifth year. Today, I will let you revisit a post from May of 2019 … and it is entitled “Say hello to Dom Lazzini.”

On May 4, 2019, I went to South Fayette Stadium for the first time since I went to South Fayette High School in the 2000s. I went to a lacrosse game with one of my relatives late that morning. I wore my green South Fayette Lions Lacrosse pullover to the game … and my friend, Chuck Lazzini, wore his green top to the game as well. That was sort of planned. We also wore the tops to South Fayette Fire Hall just over two months earlier. Anyway, I bumped into Chuck Lazzini’s son, Dom, while I was there … and Dom was nice enough to appear in a photo with both me and Chuck while I was at South Fayette Stadium. Dom was literally surrounded by two classy people that day … and meeting Dom in person is an experience that I won’t soon forget. He is one of the classiest people that I have ever known.

In honor of my blog’s fifth year, I’d like to show you five blog posts that I wrote down on or around July 17th in previous years …

Joseph Pratt's Interests And Some Other Things

Over the weekend, I saw a lacrosse game at South Fayette Stadium … and I really enjoyed it, even though one of South Fayette’s Lacrosse teams lost by one point in overtime.  I still like South Fayette’s Lacrosse team a lot.

I bumped into one of this blog’s followers, Chuck Lazzini, while I was at the game … and we both had our green lacrosse pullovers on while we were there.  Also, while I was at the game, I bumped into Chuck’s son, Dom.  Dom is a very classy person.  He’s also a classy lacrosse player.  He played for South Fayette’s lacrosse team in the past … and now he plays for Mount Union’s lacrosse team, which is located in Ohio.  I also wore my Mount Union shirt underneath of my top … and Chuck wore a Mount Union hat that morning.

Say hello to Donna Barca!

On the morning of July 4, 2019, I went to Giant Eagle in Collier Township for a few minutes … and, just before I left the store, I bumped into Donna Barca, who is the mother of my cousin, Sarah Smith.  I have bumped into Donna several times over the years, but I have never had a chance to appear in a selfie with her … until then.  You will see that selfie below this part of the blog post.

On July 4, 2019, I snapped this selfie with Donna Barca at the Giant Eagle store in Collier Township. Donna is the mother of my cousin, Sarah Smith.

Joseph’s 1,000th Blog Post

During the second half of my blog’s fifth year, I will give you chances to revisit some of my past blog posts … and, during the month of July, I will give you chances to revisit some of my blog posts from my blog’s fifth year. Today, I will let you revisit my 1,000th blog post, which is from November of 2018.

On November 15, 2018, I wrote my 1,000th blog post here on my blog … and, during most of the first half of November of 2018, I was going down the road to my 1,000th blog post by showing you guys some of the milestones that I have reached on my blog throughout its history. I will include those blog posts as well.

Well, anyway, let me tell you about my 1,000th blog post, which was about my friend, Justin McKean. It wasn’t easy for me to choose a topic for the big blog post, considering that I had to think about topics that may be interesting for a blog post like this one. I just wanted to dedicate this blog post to Justin McKean, who has been a friend for me for 12 years now. He’s one of the classiest friends I have ever known. Again, I would like to thank Justin for allowing me to make him the subject of my 1,000th blog post.

I will also include the blog posts that went to the end of my “road” to my 1,000th blog post back in November.

In honor of my blog’s fifth year, I’d like to show you five blog posts that I wrote down on or around July 9th in previous years …

Joseph Pratt's Interests And Some Other Things

Well, ladies and gentlemen, this is it.  Today is a big day for me and for my blog.  I am writing my 1,000th blog post on my blog … and, as I’ve been saying for weeks now, it could be about a person, a place or a thing.  Well, after giving this a lot of thought. I’ve decided that my 1,000th blog post will be about a person.

FB_IMG_1542273586651 This is Joseph’s 1,000th blog post. He has this sign to prove it.

My 1,000th blog post will be about a classy friend of mine … and this friend is cool, casual and classy in many ways.  The person’s name is Justin McKean.  I first became friends with him while I was at South Fayette High School back on January 23, 2007.  He was one of the three substitute teachers that I had while I was at the school back then.  For…

Brady Has Been With Us For Just Over Three Months Now!

On March 30, 2019, Brady, who is our brown and white English Bulldog, came to our house for the first time … and, for just over three months or so, Brady has become a terrific part of our family.  Brady is a fantastic puppy, but he does lots of things that puppies do.  He is a biter.  He bites my relatives and he chews on things he’s not supposed to chew on, but he’s still a terrific puppy, nonetheless.  He has a lot of toys … and he sometimes likes to play with empty water bottles.

Sometimes, I’m able to watch Brady indoors for at least a few minutes in the mornings … and, if I’m able to watch it in the living room during that time, I’m usually able to do it with confidence, but I will also watch it outdoors whenever I possibly can during that same time frame.  I can honestly say that Brady keeps me busy almost every day, but I sometimes enjoy watching him.  I just have to watch what he does regularly.

Brady is becoming a big star on my Social Media sites.  My friends and my other relatives like Brady as much as I do.  They love to see Brady in action whenever they have the time to do so.

Thank you, Brady, for being a big part of our lives for just over three months.  You have become a true member of our family!

In honor of my blog’s fifth year, I’d like to show you five blog posts that I wrote down on or around July 3rd in previous years …
