Happy Birthday…

1 Dec

…To Fabulous Realms!

Yes, the very first post, Tad Williams: The American Tolkien?, appeared exactly one year ago today and I just couldn’t let that minor anniversary go by entirely unremarked. I very much started this website purely as a short-term thing but it ‘grew in the telling’ (as one of my favourite authors would have said) and now I’d never even dream of stopping. I’ve really enjoyed sharing my genuine love of fantasy, folklore, myth and legend over the past year – never imagining for a second that anyone else would be interested in my humble scribblings. That’s why I hugely appreciate every single comment, follow, view or like that this site has ever had and fondly hope that there are many more in the (hopefully) many years to come. For my part, I plan to keep on blogging (to paraphrase another of my favourite authors) until they nail shut the lid of my coffin 😉

Thanks for stopping by!
