Happy New Year and Thank You

thank you

The New Year looms and I feel the pressure to write some fantastic end of year blog.

Is it just me, or does every one of us feel the same way? I have read so many end of year wrap-ups that I feel compelled to write my own.  The only problem is that I have absolutely no idea what to write about.  I don’t want to sum up 2018–though I reserve the right to do that some day in January when I am feeling more introspective.

The only thing I should absolutely do is thank everyone for reading the blog and for commenting. This is a labour of love and not a job.  If it weren’t for people reading it, then I know I wouldn’t have the energy to continue it.  When I see people have read some posts, I do feel very proud and happy, and it makes the whole endeavour worth it.  When I get comments on the posts, I feel like I am reaching people.

I have had more views that last year, so the blog is continuing to grow. I have more followers, so the blog is continuing to grow.  There have definitely been more comments, so I know my pestering has been working.

Thank you everyone for reading. Also, thank you to the person who, this year, has read every post I have written–that’s a feat I cannot imagine doing myself..  Your email comments have been very supportive.

Happy New Year everyone.  I hope 2019 is fantastic for all of you.

    Congratulations on the increase in views and comments, Anthony — both are very well-deserved! And yes, I also felt some peer pressure to do a “year in review” or “happy new year” post, but then I fell asleep. Maybe next year … ha ha. I do hope 2019 will bring you much happiness and wonderful new adventures, though. Happy New Year, and keep up the great blogging!

  3. Happy New Year, and may many more perfect moments come to fruition!

    We bloggers need to stick together. We are a dying breed being swallowed by Twitter.
