Fearsome Beard’s blog started with this POST on June 1, 2014.

Thank you dear readers for 6 years, 3,444 posts, 337,950 views and 114,715 individual visitors. Thank you dear blogger friends for your inspiration and support. Thank you dear SPO for introducing me to WordPress and opening a new world to me.

Cheers to our future! The best is yet to come.


A certain blogger text me a pic of a rabbit last evening as the year was changing over on the east coast. It was his way of reminding me that if you start the first of a month by saying rabbit it brings luck. Going further if you say rabbit on the first of every month for a year, you have a year of good luck. Not being one to step on a crack, Fearsome asked me to say it. So here it is, rabbit.

Yesterdays gratitude list brings me to my gratitude for you. I am humbled by the year that Fearsome Beard had in 2015. Now at only 18 months in the blogosphere, due to you dear readers, we can share some exciting numbers for us. Fearsome had more than 37,000 views from a total of 112 countries, has accumulated more than 300 fabulous followers and posted 593 photos in 2015. Thank you for your interest, input, humor and loyalty. We hope that you stick around for more fun and adventure in the coming years.

Another blogger gave me some insight this morning of a post topic that seems to increase blog traffic. I’m not sure if Fearsome will allow me to go there. We will see what the year brings and I have learned never say never. I find it a hilarious post even though the subject matter isn’t about beards.

So cheers to you for a wonderful new year in 2016. May your joys be as deep as the oceans, your troubles as light as foam, and may you find sweet peace of mind wherever you may roam.

While traditions suggest a white Rabbit I feel that white is a rather presumptuous color for someone of my "experience".

2014 in review … My first year here on WordPress

The stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 13,000 times in 2014. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 5 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

Fearsome Beard entered the blogosphere June 1, 2014.

He is a happy Beard as he gets to post his thoughts and things he likes on this here blog thingy. He credits Joe Jervis for that term, blog thingy. He started reading blogs when he found Joe’s blog about 10 years ago when searching for Drag names on Google. He credits Dr. Spo for inspiration and help in starting his blog. He loves his Fearsome Buds and all his commenters, followers and readers. He’s looking forward to 2015 and his first full year of thought sharing, learning and growing. He is but a student, a student who believes that if you are not learning you are not growing and if you are not growing you are dying. He chooses life, thus he chooses growth. Thank you for reading and choosing growth as well.

Cheers to 2015!

Love & Peace,

Fearsome Beard
