Regular readers will know I don’t usually write such shouty headlines. But this time I can’t help myself.

I never thought I’d be sitting here today, writing a post with that title on this site. But yes, it’s true.

Ten years ago today, a University student sat in her bedroom and started a blog. That blog was Same Difference and that University student was me.

Ten years later, I’ve got my University degree. Ten years later, I like to call myself a journalist. Ten years later, I’m very proud to say, over two million people have visited Same Difference and read my scribbles.

I still value every comment, more than you will ever know. I still appreciate every hit, every like and every share, more than you will ever know.

And, once a year, every 21st of June, I still write a general post to thank every single reader of my little website.

It’s a tiny little address on the massive World Wide Web, but to me, it’s the world. I’m so glad that to you, it’s a place where you find, and share, useful and interesting information and stories.

I wouldn’t be here without you, readers. So THANK YOU, every single one of you, more than you will ever know.

Here’s to the next TEN YEARS!!!

    Big THANK YOU SameDifference, 🙂

    Shame that all the bad news is just as bad, if not worse, than it was ten years ago. 😦

    But the news would certainly be far worse without oases like yours in the desert of fake news, censorship and blind-eye turning silence.

    Well done you, and I hope the next 10 years are even better for you 🙂
    I started my Blog as a Uni student, too, and I’ve found it totally amazing to see how many people, of such disparate lives, have read it.
    The World is definitely a smaller place, with the internet joining us all together, isn’t it? 🙂
