SDP's 4th Blogoversary


SDP's 4th Blogoversary
Photo & Text © 2010 Kim- Seattle Daily Photo. All rights reserved; no use, alteration, reproduction or republishing in any media.
July 8th marks the 4th anniversary of my first post to Seattle Daily Photo. This lovely little "Cherry Kiss" cake is from Seattle's own Parisian Star Deserts. Since Paris Daily Photo was the inspiration for this and hundreds of other Daily City Photo Blogs, and since Washington state cherries are phenomenally good this time of year, I thought it would be a perfect treat for this celebration. I share this with love and heartfelt thanks to each of you for visiting. Some of you tell me you once lived in Seattle and check in for a little view of home. Others say they are anticipating moving here and want to see more of the Emerald City before arriving. Many of you also publish daily photoblogs and enjoy photography and sharing your experiences. Some have made me blush by sharing SDP inspired you to start your own photoblogs. Your friendships havebroadened my horizons and understanding, and I've really enjoyed your great good humor and appreciated your many kindnesses. Some of you drop in daily and comment frequently, and others are occasional readers. I've had so much fun wandering the neighborhoods of the city with camera in hand, and you've made it so much more fun with your views and responses to the images. I've loved meeting folks when they've visited here and when I've been in their cities. Thanks very much for the richness of experiences and interactions I've enjoyed with you all these past four years!

What a wonderful photograph for your big day and goodness, that is a big day - 4 years of glorious photos, wonderful words and valued friendship. Many many congratulations. You have long been my inspiration Kim and you are without doubt the most wonderful commenter - always so incredibly generous in your words, words that one feels you've considered so carefully and I thank you so much for that.
I've never met you in person but so hope one day I might but through your blog I do feel I've got to know you a little and of course beautiful Seattle. How wonderful is this marvellous City Daily Photo community thanks to Eric's brilliant idea.

Big hug and kiss on your big day!

Congratulations on your blog's 4th birthday! And dear Kim, we have so much to thank you for too — your warm encouragement and kindness in your comments, and for sharing your wonderful photos with us these past years.

I just wish there was some way for you to share that yummy looking cake with us for real! :D

It is a privilege to see Seattle through your lens, Kim. And, as Jilly said, it is always a gift to find a comment from you. Thank you for being one of the steady pillars of the CDP community. You and your photography enrich our little world each and every day. Congratulations on this 4th anniversary. And this sweet, sweet image.

Congrats Kim!

Katie said...

Wow -- 4 years?! That's an extraordinary accomplishment, especially since each day you post such amazing photo of your wonderful city. Congratulations! I know I don't comment often, but I do love your blog and hope there are many more years of Seattle Daily Photo to come! (Oh and I hope there's some leftover cake; perfect to chose a French-themed caked in honor of PDP.)

Kim said...

Thanks to each of you for your very kind wishes and for stopping by to celebrate. It made my day to hear from so many special people.
The Parisian Cherry Kiss mousse cake went to two darling young sisters who were visiting Seattle and posing in their colorful sundresses in front of the postcard view for their father.

I am new to daily photo blogging (www.templecitydailyphoto.blogspot.com) but I have really enjoyed yours these last few weeks.

Shell Sherree said...

Such a lovely photo for your celebration. Congratulations, Kim, and thank you so much for showing me your beautiful city!

Jazzy said...

Congratulations Kim!!!
First of all great to see you are still in the ether since you are one of the first city bloggers and I simply loved your photos from the beginning.
Although I don't visit sdp very often any more (or at least as much as I would like to), it still gives me enormous pleasure to see you are there and encourages me to keep posting on tdp.

Your photos really make me smile and I do hope you'll continue posting for many more years to come!

Bottoms up!


Thank you for your kind comments!

Kat said...

Congratulations! 4 years is a long time indeed. I read your blog only for about 7 months, and it's really awesome. You make really beautiful shots of one of my most favorite cities (you're lucky to live there!) and write good comments to your photos, not every City Photo blogger does that. Keep up the good work!

P.S. The photo is really cute, too, it made me smile. Love the lighting. :)

Way to go, Kim. Happy Blogiversity!
