First Anniversary

First Anniversary is what this little blog is celebrating this month. Well in fact it was the end of last year when it was first opened, but this month is from when I really started.
My niece Emma is an excellent blogger and she first said that I should start. I could not seem to see why on earth you would blog. I let her help to set up my blog and I decided on Jollyjillys because that is so me.

It wasn't until Jan of last year that I really thought I would try and away I went. I don't think I write anything of great meaning but I do write from my heart. I love to share my life and my family with such nice people all around the world.
Everyday I am shocked at how people read the blog and send me such nice comments.
I have had conversations with such nice interesting people, and I hope they have gone away feeling like they had a fun read.

I would like to tell anyone that its not too late to start, I am 54 and had never done anything at all like this. So give it a go because it is such fun and is so interesting.
I hope you enjoy sharing my first anniversary post and if you have been there from the start I do thank you so much.
Thank you also to Emma as it would never have started if it was not for her.


  1. I didn't even know what a blog was until we got engaged and I turned to social media sites for inspiration. I love writing, even if I don't write well, and thought that I'd like to give it a try. I haven't looked back since. I really enjoy rambling away and like you, everything is from the heart. I don't think that many people read my blog. But I don't really mind.It keeps me out of trouble!
    Congratulations Jill on you anniversary. I know that your blog is very popular because it is written with sincerity and covers everyday topics. Here's to many more years of Jolly Jilly blogging and making us all smile.
