I got this notification of an achievement from WP.com Happy Anniversary to me.  I have been on WordPress.com for twelve years.  Who would have thought it, eh?

I should point out that my wife was a book editor and worked for many well-known publishers, and things like ‘copywriting’ and ‘copywriter’ jump out at her. A copywriter – a writer of copy.
