You and Me and Blogging in 2011

11 Jan

That’s you and me on top of the ferris wheel!

I’m so thankful for all the readers who have dropped by my blog and all who read regularly.  It’s been fun sharing stories with you as well as hearing yours on your own blogs.  I always love discovering new blogs from you.  What incredible writers and thinkers you all are!

A special thanks to all of you who have subscribed, left comments for me, and mentioned my blog to your friends!  In case you didn’t know, you can subscribe to my blog for FREE! by typing your email address where it says Email Subscription on the right hand side of this page.

Blogger sent me a sweet happy New Year!  They mentioned a curious fact about the amount of times this blog has been reviewed:

If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 4 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

Pretty cool!  The Sydney Opera House is an amazing work of architecture.  I hope to make it out to Australia sometime soon!

It’s hard to believe I’ve been blogging for only one year here.  Because of your support and encouragement, I actually exceeded my 2011 blogging resolutions.  They were:

1.  Blog about writing at least once  a month.

2.  Blog about Greek identity, Greek culture, or Greece at least once a month.

3.  Update blog whenever I publish a new article elsewhere.

Somehow, between working full time, going to grad school full time, freelancing, and occasionally showering, I usually managed to post a blog entry every week instead of just twice a week.  Some weeks I even had multiple posts!  Because of the hectic schedule I’ll be keeping in 2012 (hello, thesis!), I won’t be changing my blogging resolutions much.  I’ll still aim to bring you as much free quality content as possible.  If my posting slows down at all, rest assured I’m working on something bigger and better that I can’t wait to share with you!  Seriously, I’ve got some really exciting projects coming up.  As dedicated readers, you’ll be among the first to know so stay tuned!!

What about you?  Any blogging resolutions for 2012?  Writing resolutions in general?  Anyone traveling to Sydney??

    Actually I was just kidding up there … but truly, I enjoy your writing style, the content of your blog and your open-ended breezy perspective … I would miss reading your posts as they inspire my butterfly brain-waves to meander/light here and there everytime I read your blog..
