Joseph Celebrates His Blog’s Fifth Anniversary At Fairview Park!

On August 24, 2019, this blog, which is called “Joseph Pratt’s Interests And Some Other Things,” turned five years old … and, as you might have guessed, I celebrated the milestone at home that morning … and, that afternoon, I celebrated the milestone at Fairview Park.  It was one of the most exciting days of my life.  Whenever I went to Fairview Park for three hours on that day, I was able to go to South Fayette’s Community Day … and I bumped into some of my friends while I was there.  I also bumped into a local congressman while I was at Fairview Park.  I also bumped into a meteorologist from an out-of-town TV station, which is actually quite viewable here in southwestern Allegheny County.

On August 24, 2019, I went to South Fayette’s Community Day, which was in Fairview Park. I also celebrated my blog’s fifth anniversary while I was there.

I also saw some fantastic-looking clouds in the skies above Fairview Park while I was at Community Day.

I saw these clouds in the skies above Fairview Park on August 24, 2019. The clouds here are white and grey … and I saw some “blue holes” in the clouds as well.

Now, while I was at this event, I bumped into some of my friends … and I was also able to snap a selfie with a few of my friends while I was there.  Some of those friends are Dustin Lunn, Michael Meehan and Katie Meehan.

I also bumped into Congressman Conor Lamb, who is from the South Hills.

On August 24, 2019, I introduced myself to Congressman Conor Lamb, who is actually from the South Hills.

While I was at this event, I happened to bump into a TV meteorologist.  Now, this weatherman is not on one of our TV stations here in Pittsburgh, but this station is actually quite viewable in southwestern Allegheny County.  The weatherman’s name is Jeff Oechslein, who is the morning meteorologist at WTOV, which is the NBC affiliate in Steubenville, Ohio.  Let me explain this situation to you.  More than 15 years ago, I was able to watch WTOV on our TVs at my house before we started to get cable TV on just about every TV set in our house.  I would sometimes watch Jeff on the station’s morning newscast … and, in a way, that’s how I recognized this weatherman.

All in all, I had a fantastic day at Fairview Park on August 24, 2019.  I would like to say thank you to the people who were able to bump into me at this event back then … and I would like to say all of you for allowing me to have a blog for five years.  It has grown gracefully since August of 2014.

“Joseph Pratt’s Interests And Some Other Things” Is Five Years Old Today!

Today is a very big day for this blog, which is called “Joseph Pratt’s Interests And Some Other Things.”  This blog is now officially five years old.  It seems like this blog started yesterday … and you have made it grow up into the blog it is today.

“Joseph Pratt’s Interests And Some Other Things” is five years old today! The blog started on August 24, 2014.
Thank you for allowing my blog to become a classy blog over the past five years.

Since I started my blog five years ago, I have written nearly 1,200 posts on here … and I will write more blog posts for you guys for as long as I am able to do so.  I probably won’t do this forever, but who knows?

I have 180 followers on my blog … and I would like to thank them for following my blog regularly.  Some of them do it here on WordPress.com … and some of them do it via e-mail.  I don’t have time to thank all of my blog’s followers today, so I will do my best to thank them in several of my blog posts throughout my blog’s sixth year.

All in all, I would like to say thank you for allowing me to give you some fantastic blog posts over the past five years.  You have been able to help me let it grow gracefully from a simple blog to a very classy blog.  I have talked about some very interesting things in my posts … and my mission is to keep the people who check out my blog regularly both informed and entertained.  I will continue to do just that in the future.

Now, tomorrow, I will begin my blog’s sixth year … and I already have some topics to begin a new year of this blog with.  I can’t tell you what I’ll be talking about in the posts yet.  I will give you some great blog posts in the coming days.

Now, for the last time, I will give you five blog posts that I wrote down on or around a certain date in previous years.  I was able to do it in all of my blog posts throughout my blog’s fifth year.  Now that my blog’s fifth year is coming to an end, I won’t be doing this for you guys anymore.

In honor of my blog’s fifth year, which ends today, I would like to give you five blog posts that I wrote down on or around August 24th in previous years …

Celebrating My Blog’s Fifth Year: My Blog’s Best Month Ever

May 2019 is my blog’s best month ever.  It was seen by various people, including myself, 238 times back then.

People say my blog’s home page 32 times in May of 2019 … and they saw my blog posts 206 times in that month.  The posts were all seen less than 10 times in a single month by various people.  That’s how May 2019 became my blog’s best month ever.

My blog crossed the 200-views mark three times during my blog’s fifth year.  At one point, December 2018 was my blog’s best month ever with 216 views.  The previous record was 167 views, which was reached in March of 2017.  The record that was reached in December of 2018 was beaten in May of 2019.

Next time, I will talk about the ways that people are able to talk to me on my blog.  Then, after that, I will write my big blog post in honor of my blog’s fifth anniversary.  The big day will occur on Saturday.

In honor of my blog’s fifth year, I’d like to show you five blog posts that I wrote down on or around August 21st in previous years …

Today, I would like to tell you about my blog’s best year ever, as we continue to celebrate my blog’s fifth anniversary.  The year would be 2018 … and, in that year, my blog was seen by various people, including myself, 1,564 times.  How long will this record stand for?  Well, that record will likely be broken before this year is over, so that record will not stand too much longer.

In nine of those months, my blog crossed the 100-views mark.  The months are February, March, April, May, July, September October, November and December.  In three of those months, which are May, September and December, it crossed the 150-views mark.  Finally, in December, it crossed the 200-views mark in a single month for the first time ever.

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 …

As we continue to celebrate my blog’s fifth year, I’m gonna show you some of my top blog posts from the past five years.  Now, since I have a lot of blog posts that have been seen 10 or more times by various people, including myself, I’m gonna try something a little bit different this year.  I will show you the posts that have been seen by various people at least 20 times since they were first written.  After that, I will tell you how many posts have been seen between 10 and 20 times since I first wrote them.  You’ll see what I mean as we go along in this post.
