Rather incredibly, I’ve now been writing this blog for four years. It certainly doesn’t seem that long. Time flies: in fact, I actually entirely forgot the anniversary last year. Oops. My first cautious contribution to the blogosphere was in July 2011 and, in the three years since then, the blog has morphed and changed to keep up with my enthusiasms. However I hope my long-term readers still find things of interest.
As ever, I’m enormously grateful that writing the blog has allowed me to meet so many interesting and brilliant people. It continues to be an excellent motivation for getting out and doing things, rather than sitting at home rewatching past seasons of Game of Thrones, which quite frankly is what I’d be doing otherwise.
A special thank-you to those who take the time to leave comments. It means such a lot. Writing the posts is only part of having a blog, although it’s the most time-consuming aspect: the most wonderful part is discussing the book, play, exhibition or opera further with other people, and it always gives me a thrill whenever a new comment pops up. If you read but don’t comment, please take the plunge at some point! It’d be lovely to hear from you.
So, I raise a glass to you all, and look forward to another year of blogging – as last year showed, the whole emphasis of the blog can change dramatically in twelve months, so goodness knows what new delights are on the horizon this year. Thank you for your continued support. You’re all fabulous.
