Second on the 2nd: a look back

Those of you who are here looking for the T post, it is the one below this one.  If your Second on the 2nd post is T related, please share it at both link ups.

Second on the 2nd turned ONE in January.  I originally had this post created for January, then decided to show the Google post, instead.  And of course, what I feared might happen, actually did.  Many of us lost loyal followers as a result of google's power play.

Here's what I originally wrote in January when I first scheduled this post.
"It's only fitting that today is all about looking back and paying homage to Second on the 2nd.  This retrospective mosaic shows the 12 second looks I presented in 2015.  Welcome to 2016 everyone, where we can all start on year TWO of Second on the 2nd." 

Although it's a bit late, I hope you, who were here last month, or those who read what happened to their loyal followers, understand why this post is a month late.  And because it takes a LONG time to create one of these mosaics (especially with my slow computer), I decided to use it this month.

Now it's your turn to share your second look.   All you have to do is bring back a post that you are especially proud of, or one you shared before anyone knew your blog existed.  Then link below and Bleubeard and I, along with other Second on the 2nd friends, will be by to visit.  If you are new to Second on the 2nd, and your blog post permits only GOOGLE+ responses, I (and several others) can´t comment on your entry.  It's all in the way you set up your blog responses.

Please be aware this link is only open for five days, so it's best to post on the 2nd.

Wonderful collage Elizabeth!
Happy Day - don't be unhappy about loosing followers... just numbers -
we got and made unique friends at the same time, didn't we?
I enjoy to look at my blog statistics once a week.. and when I see how many clicks there are every day - I am happy .... it makes me happy that people are interested in what I do...
even though they aren't followers or left any comments.

Me again - in our packages of vanilla sugar is exactly (8g)= 0.2821917oz - lol ---would say two teaspoon full.
If you forget the vanilla sugar it is also yummie...
This cake is so versatile.... hubby loves it most with apples
I love it with plums or frozen wildberries ..... so yummie!
Sometimes I put one part for him and one part for me....

Happy anniversary, glad to be back for the Groundhog Day, 2nd. My Ggle stats keep going back and forth, it's always something. Hope to see you next month.

What a great digital collage, fun to see what happened over the year. I settled on one post for the Second and T Tuesday, Too bad I couldn't work Groundhog Day in there somehow (grin)

Krisha said...

Wow! I did not realize we have been sharing a Second Look for a year....my how time flies!!

Yes, it does take time to make a collage......or do anything with photos....then you have to write the post....LOL Sometimes takes me all day!

I see a lot of complaints about loosing followers.......mine go up one day and down two the next then back up again......like Google can't make up it's mind!! It is totally out of my control, so I'm not going to worry about it...........we are all going through it...and I refuse to change "MY" ways to please Google!

I'm off the soap box and onto other things..............have a great day and Happy 2nd on the 2nd anniversary.

I love it! You are so creative, Elizabeth. The first one, far left, on the mosaic reminds me a bit of some of my daughter's paintings.
You, have a fantastic day!

Thank you for the second look at your artwork.
And a very special thank you for helping me link up with this. As you have seen, I have now linked one of my earlier blogs. I haven't been blogging very long (since march 2014).
Thanks for your kind comments.
Have a good week,
