A typical street in Kirkby, Liverpool. 1965.

Well now we have the big day out of the way, I thought I would come and share some news with you, dear reader. Starting in the New Year we will have a new contributor to Jammy Toast who will be posting stories about life, love and the eternal pursuit of happiness. The new contributor will be a young lady by the name of Andreaa. Now Andreaa is a little special around here because she was our very first friend back in the days when Ananasty and I first started blogging. The year was Anno Domini 2006 when we took our first faltering steps onto Blogger and Andreaa found us… and basically started bullying us. I mean, she was thirteen-years-old when all said and done. If you are asking yourself how a thirteen year old schoolgirl could possibly bully a fully grown man, then you have obviously never come across Andreaa.

And God Said Let There Be… Blogging

Ananasty and the days of The Great Sock Fight

We have mentioned before about how and why Jammy Toast started but I don’t think we have ever told the story about how we started blogging in the first place. So, I thought today we might put that right. In the summer of 2006, Ananasty and I used to go out gallivanting on a Sunday afternoons. I would pick her up and we would go and play golf or go bowling or some adventure or other. Occasionally we might go to the cinema and watch a film, which if it was boring usually ended up in us having a “sock fight” or some other interesting pastime.

As most of you know, Update is here to bring everyone up to date with goings on here at Jammy Toast. A great deal of work goes on behind the scenes and future plans are made which most of you may not get the chance to hear about or even have your own say upon. Because Jammy Toast is here for everyone to enjoy we feel that everyone should have a chance to have their say or at least be able to comment on all things Jammy. This is your chance…

Blogging is dying according to the New York Times. Blogs were once the outlet people chose if they wanted to express themselves online. However, the rise in popularity of social media sites like Facebook and Twitter has seen the attraction of blogging losing out for many people – particularly the younger generations.

Sometime last night we had our ONE MILLIONTH VISITOR to our blog. Since we first started in January 2007 we have had our site viewed one million times by our friends and visitors. That is a great deal of time spent reading about bear news and views – you sad people have you got nothing better to do with your time? Joke!

Hello everyone, this is Razzi here and I thought because we are just starting a new year we would continue an old feature – My Column. That means from time to time, or when Dave can’t think of anything better to write, I will write something to try to keep you all entertained. I am not quite sure what I am going to write about yet but I thought I would get the ball rolling today.

We have completed importing all the previous posts which originally appeared on the Queen’s Blog, the Blogger version of the Bear Blog, then the Original WordPress Bear Blog and all has gone well. All posts are now in place, although there is still some work to do getting them to display in their correct Categories/Tags. We will also have to resize many of the graphic files manually because they are oversized for the new theme.

From time to time people have asked us how they go about starting their own blog. We usually point them in the direction of Blogger or WordPress.com where they can start their own blog free of charge. Both of these sites offer a chance for newbies to produce professional looking blogs of their own very quickly.

If you check back to yesterday’s post you will see a comment from “Teena” in Canada wishing us a Happy Blogoversary. At first we were a little confused because we still have 150 days left until our Blogoversary. For those who are a little unsure, a Blogoversary is simply the Anniversary of the starting of your Blog. However, it turns out that today is the Second Anniversary of us starting the original Bear Blog over on Blogger.
