For those who like statistics, since I moved the blog to Typepad in 2005, after two years on Blogger, I've written 2356 total posts, which have received 13,796 total comments.

Twenty years. Almost two decades. So many changes in the world over the psst 20 years. Yours was one of the first blogs I discovered. It took me years before I began to comment.

I agree with everything you wrote about the vital place blogging has been in the lives of those of us who have continued blogging after so many stopped. This year I considered stopping blogging and took about a month off but realized that blogging is a creative part of my life that I want to keep. I only read and comment on a few blogs now. That is working well for me.

As always, I look forward to your art work and your writing. Gracias!

Dear am: Thank you so much for being there, for reading, and more recently for commenting and writing to me. It means more than I can say. And I'm glad you agree with what I wrote about blogging and the place it has occupied in many of our lives.

Happy 20th, Cassandra Pages! I've been following along for some years, and it's a lovely place to land. (And those grape hyacinths are gorgeous, so closely observed...)

Congratulations on the 20th anniversary. I'm so glad your stubborn nature has kept you at blogging for 20 years. You're an amazing creative, both visually and verbally. Thank you. It's good to see you are also on Substack. I was wondering because I saw your authorship included with your name in recent comments you made on my Substack. Now I understand why, and I will of course subscribe there. Keep up the good work! Your spirit is alive in these pages.

Congratulations on 20 fabulous years! It’s nice to hear that your reservations from a few years ago have dissipated. Keep it up, please!

Dear Beth, so sorry I haven't looked in for some time and also missed congratulating you on Cassandra's 20th anniversary... I'm doing it now, raising an imaginary giant bucketful of champagne. Long may you continue blogging in your own unique voice.
Much love. Natalie

Joyeux bloganniversaire! I've enjoyed every single one of those 2356 blog posts. Grateful for your continued presence, sur le Web comme dans nos vies.

Who was Cassandra?

  • In the Iliad, she is described as the loveliest of the daughters of Priam (King of Troy), and gifted with prophecy. The god Apollo loved her, but she spurned him. As a punishment, he decreed that no one would ever believe her. So when she told her fellow Trojans that the Greeks were hiding inside the wooden horse...well, you know what happened.
