swissmiss = 4


It’s a big day over here at swissmiss. Four years ago, today, I started this blog with a quote by Herman Hesse. Little did I know that blogging would become such a big part of my life and that I would meet such talented, fabulous people from all around the world because of it.

Thank you, my much appreciated readers. Thank you Internet! Time to put my party hat on! And as my friend BB would say: “Happy my (blog) birthday to you”!

Oh, and by the way, Happy Birthday WordPress!
