Happy Thanksgiving to my US followers! Although I’m not in America, and do not celebrate Thanksgiving (I’m a Brit, sorry), it’s still quite a relevant time to post a tag that is so celebratory and all about being thankful- so it’s very convenient that Stephanie from Adventures of a Bibliophile tagged me in this ‘Celebrating the Little Things’ tag today!
Who was your very first follower (if you can find out)? Tag them and give them a shout out!
According to my stats, my very first follower on this incarnation of The Terror of Knowing was… drumroll please – Liz from Travel In Retrospect aka Liz, my friend who I met at university and share a house with now. She’s been a loyal follower of my blog, thanks friend! ;)
What was the last milestone you reached?
I don’t really tend to count milestones (mostly because I haven’t reached one that most of the blogging community would find especially significant), however, I am at 197 followers, which is pretty close to a milestone I guess! I also reached 200 published posts in September (with this Pastry Book Tag) which was pretty nice.

The very first post I posted (and is still available) is called A defence of my degree subject. I was in my first term of my first year of undergraduate studies and I was apparently feeling a little bit defensive of being an Arts student – apparently we’re all doing “pointless” degrees that don’t amount to anything. I’d say I still stand by what I said there, even if I am a little more cynical of the value the outside world actually assigns to Arts degrees having had experience of job hunting post-graduation.
