Happy 2016

And so another year has gone. I can hardly believe how far my blog has gone in this year. I’ve learned so many things and I’ve met so many fantastic people. Real life might have been tough, but the blogosphere has given me a lot.

Last year at this time I had just moved to a self-hosted blog and I barely knew what I was doing. It felt quite lonely back then, now that I think about it, but I read that perseverance is the n. 1 weapon of any blogger, so I persevered. And luckily I did.
In April I took part to the AtoZChallenge, which, in addition to being a blast of an experience, allowed me to meet so many of you. I was anticipating the AtoZChallenge to be a nice experience, but I didn’t expect to gain from it all the good things I did.
The challenge also taught me that I shouldn’t be afraid of sharing what (little) I know, that’s how some of the most popular blog posts had been born. I love writing about the Twenties (guess what!) and I now love sharing what I know with all of you.

Sharing, discussing, confronting is the best part of blogging. I know I have still a long way to go, and I can’t wait to move on along it.
I have good travel companions, you know. I’m so grateful for every single person I’ve met on my journey as a writer and a blogger… and a person. You are truly what makes all of this worthwhile.

I anticipate 2016 to be another exciting year. I have plans about it.

So I want to close this year with a special gift. This is the voice of our Earth as the NASA recorded it from space. The voice of our beautiful mother.

    I always enjoy your posts on the 1920’s, I’m glad to hear you plan to keep doing them in 2016. Happy New Year!

      Happy new year to you, Robin 🙂

      I’m definitely writing more about the 1920s in the new year. Actually, I’d have already posted, if I hadn’t been like a zombie in the last week, because of flu. But soon you’ll see more about the New Woman.

      Isn’t it? I find it kind of touching. The voice of our Earth.
      Happy new year to you too, Anabel 🙂

      Happy new year to you too, Sabina.
      The AtoZ was one of the best things that happen to me in 2015. Met so many wonderful people.
      Hope to see you in the AtoZ this year too 🙂

    Happy New Year, Sarah!

    I’ll be disappearing for a few months although I may resurface every now and again, here and there, as and when I find a connection. 2016 has arrived and I’m soon set for shores familiar and distant. When I’m established I’ll be back to argue and disagree with you once more… 😉

    Good luck for the year ahead and I look forward to your eventual release 🙂

      Are you going back to Asia?
      Hope you’ll be able to find connection quite often, or I’ll really miss our disagreements 😉
      So I suppose your new year will be full of new things. Wish you all the best.
      I’ll look for your ‘resurfacing’ anywhere it may happen 😉

      Happy new year to you too, Carrie-Anne.
      I’m working on the New Woman series, and to be honest, I was hoping to post at the end of December. But it will be soon 🙂
