Happy birthday to 365lessthings

I didn’t realise until today that yesterday the 5th of March was the anniversary of the first post I ever sent out from 365lessthings. My quest to rid myself of 365 items was already 64 days old at that point but better to start late than never.

Below is a link to my very first post…

Starting at Day 64 of the 365 Less Things Challenge

Thanks to all my readers for making this a fun project for me. Even thought the official challenge is over the decluttering continues as does my will to help others find their way through the maze of clutter and the mind barriers we put up that prevent us from moving forward.

So happy blogiversary to me and happy decluttering to you my faithful readers.

  1. Happy Blogiversary Colleen! I really enjoy the blog and I’m glad you are continuing.

  2. Happy Blogiversary! 🙂

  3. One sweet year. Where would we be without you Colleen?

  4. What a great day – happy blogaversary to you!

  5. It was a wonderful day when you published that first post. I’m glad you did!

  6. Happy Birthday bloggy. It’s having a real positive impact on my life. Thanks very much.

  7. Congrats on your milestone! I totally love your blog and it has been an inspiration for me to rid myself of some clutter. I still have a ways to go but doing it one day at a time seems to be working well. Hope you’ll continue to blog about your journey!

  8. Congratulations, Colleen, I love your blog and it is the first I check each day. You have inspired me a lot with my decluttering and I am up to 324 items or bags of things, but I don’t do it every day.

  9. Happy blogiversary for sure, Colleen. You are helping so many. Off to work on some more decluttering of the bedroom! (still struggling with the project from a couple of weeks ago)

  10. Happy blogiversary!

  11. Hi Gang,
    thank you to everyone who has sent happy wishes for my blogiversary. It wasn’t until I opened another blog that was having its anniversary that made me think when did I start blogging. I quickly found my way back to Day 64 and realised it that very day a year ago (March 5, 2010). I had better put that on my Google calendar for next year or I am likely to forget again. Thanks again and thank you to anyone else who send wishes after I have finished writing this comment.

    Hi Colleen,

    Congratulations on your one year anniversary- 1 year of doing good, of simplifying and inspiring others to do the same. 🙂

  13. Congratulations on your blogiversary, I read every day but don’t always comment, but am often inspired! thanks!

  14. Thank you so much for taking the time to inspire your readers. You’re a terrific mentor and make the process of decluttering less overwhelming.

  15. happy first year down, and may the next year be even better 🙂

    doesn’t it make you feel “grown up?”

  16. Belated congratulations and wishes Colleen! I’ve been reading your blog almost from the start and it has been the first (and only!) blog I read every moring. Sorry I didn’t post yesterday as I try not to go on the computer on Sundays.

    • Hi Loretta,
      thank you! Maybe you could teach me how to stay away from the computer on Sundays. 😆 Actually I am pretty good at not doing much with it on Saturdays so at least that is one day a week when I can chill out. It is also my husbands eat anything day so we usually go crazy but are still losing weight. This coming weekend the Taste fo Sydney is on and we might catch the train and go to that. I do love my food!

  17. Wow Colleen, I have missed the last few posts because I was busy with organising my son’s birthday celebrations and guess what – his birthday is on 5th March 🙂
    Congratulations and many thanks for all the work you do here and all the inspiration you provide.

  18. Colleen, A belated happy blogiversary from the States! Like many others, I read your blog first, and it is always full of good advice and a few laughs. I enjoy the readers posts and comments and look forward to joining you throughout the coming year. Thanks!

  19. Thank you again to every one who sent wishes on Sunday and all those who have sent wishes since. I appreciate all your kind words and am glad that I can do my little bit to make your decluttering missions that little bit easier. Happy decluttering everyone!
