Today is this blog’s second birthday and so I just wanted to take a few lines to say thank you to all the lovely people who read The Idle Woman, leave comments and send me emails. You have no idea how much it brightens up my day to hear from you, so please keep it up!
This last year of blogging has been great fun. I’ve finally started to dip my toe into joint readings, which have turned out to be an unexpected pleasure: Isi and Heloise have both been brilliant companions on that front, helping me to draw so much more out of a book than I’d have managed on my own. I’m really looking forward to doing some more joint readings in the coming year and in fact I have a couple in mind already… I’ve also been able to meet some online friends in real life, whether that was at the immensely enjoyable Dorothy Dunnett Day in November, or more recently at an art-focused picnic in sunny St James’s. Thank you to all concerned for turning out to be just as enthusiastic, passionate and knowledgeable in reality as you are online.
Fingers crossed that the blogging year to come will be just as rich and exciting as this last one has been – I can’t wait to see what it has in store.
