Today when I came home I checked my notifications as I do a couple of times every day and I found one from WordPress informing me that I had 1,337 Likes.
This amused me because it’s such a random number. I thought you only got these for milestones like a hundred, five hundred or a thousand although I don’t remember getting a notification that I’d reached a thousand likes now I think about it.
Anyway it’s all good. Thank you to all those people who liked my pictures or what I wrote. It’s nice to know that someone is reading them. πŸ™‚

Born in England in 1957 my family came to Australia in 1966. I grew up in Adelaide, South Australia, where I met and married my husband David. We came together over a mutual love of trains. Both of us worked for the railways for many years, his job was with Australian National Railways, while I spent 12 years working for the STA, later TransAdelaide the Adelaide city transit system. After leaving that job I worked in hospitality until 2008. We moved to Tasmania in 2002 to live in the beautiful Huon Valley. David passed away in 2015 and I'm here on my own now but I have Cindy the dog and Polly the cat to keep me company. I currently co-write two Wordpress blogswith my sister Naomi. Our doll blog "Dolls, Dolls, Dolls", and a "Our Other Blog" which is about everything else but with a focus on photographs and places in Tasmania.

  1. Haha, I think this is a joke by the WordPress developers… the number 1337 has a meaning, there is a kind of a hacker- or internet language that is called leetspeak: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leet 1337 refers to the word “leet” the name of the language…. the whole thing is basically some kind of an internet alphabet, often used by younger people, to be witty.

    As a gamer I know this kind of stuff, because it’s also often used in the chats of games. It’s funny that WordPress has an achievement that is triggering by 1337 likes. I liked some of your posts today, it could be that the 1337 like was mine, maybe πŸ˜›


    1. Well I did not know that. You learn something new everyday. Yes it’s quite possible you were number 1337 as you had been reading my posts around the time I received that notification. Appropriate as you knew what it meant. πŸ™‚
