Has it really been 1 YEAR?

Twas three days before Christmas exactly one year (and a day) ago –  December 23, 2011, that this random idea to start a Blog became a reality. I had no idea what it would be about but oh how it has evolved; from my photos to my artworks to my new life in another country … we went through it all!

I’ve seen and done some amazing things and I’m so glad I have them all here so that when I’m old and grey and my memories have fully faded – I can relive them all.

It with great pride and a bit of regret (because I am a day late) that I congratulate myself for being in a committed relationship with this Blog for a year. I know things have been pretty dormant around here but I thought I’d give my brain a break and just enjoy my holiday. It’s winding down though so I’m getting back into work mode …. now if only I can start waking up early again.

Saw this idea on SIRTILC42  and asked if I could use the idea of a year in wrap up so as promised here’s your shout out!!! Mad love to you! (I have much catching up to do on your blog :O)

  • As of right now, I have 12,260 views with 12/12/12  being the day that I hit 12,000 views 😀 Yay!
  • This is my 120th post 🙂
  • I’ve probably changed my layout around 7 times … today included 😀
  • July 2012 has been my most active month with 1858 views. Bless your heart summer – possibly the most exciting part of my year!
  • Other than the home page, my most viewed post has been Shy followed by the post on St. Hilda’s 50th – which is quite interesting considering that I had for a short while removed it due to … you know what – let’s not get into the details.
  • The top five countries who read my insanity (in order Since Feb 25 this year when they included this feature) are: Jamaica, United States, Canada, United Kingdom & Germany.
  • Even got quite a few hits from people in Indonesia, Slovenia, Japan and Sweden among others too! Trinidad – with my biggest fan Don 🙂 Montserrat must be Linda hehehe

As I started picking my favourite posts I realized that the only reason I’d have blogged about it was because it was a great experience for me sooooooo this was really hard.

  2. It was recently my first blogging anniversary as well. What a year it had been. My point of inspiration changed greatly, but that’s life. Well, holding my morning coffee cup in the air now and saying “to 2013, may we prosper with writing inspiration!” 🙂

  3. Excellent and congratulations my dear! Isn’t it amazing fun, though! I love your fresh approach, you have a great “voice”! I just wrote my 360th post… They really add up! Thanks for reminding me of some of your great posts of the past year. I might do a similar survey myself on New Year’s Eve or something… Warmest wishes for the season, and good luck with everything in 2013!
