The one with a year of blogging

A year ago I started blogging. my first post received no comments and got about two views (probably both of them by my mother). Twelve months have gone by, and I got to meet some pretty awesome people! I never thought it would have been this much fun to be a blogger. Fr this post I choose some of my favourite pictures, one for each month.

In the last 12 months:
  • I got out of my comfort zone, by not only posting photo's, but by adding some written words to them too (I worry about my knowledge of the English language, and I am afraid to make mistakes)
  • I virtually got to visit many different places, in the last 12 months I've been to Paris, Oslo, New York and Rome. I had trips to the Hirschhorn and I have a bit of an idea what it's like to sail down the East Coast of the United States!
  • I've seen some delicious looking meals coming to life in other people's kitchens
  • I rediscovered my love for photography
  • I attended a Blogger Taco Party, took part in a DIY christmas blogging challenge and received Christmas cards from all corners of the world by joining a Christmas card exchange
  • I've been named a purveyor of cool :-)
Here's to another year of blogging!

  11. I just realized I started my blog on the 25 and you started on the 26. Yay for our blog birthdays because I think the rule is most blogs fail within three months! By the way, the cat graffiti is awesome and totally my favorite.

  18. Awesome to hear you're having a great time blogging. Most give up after not seeing much return in the first few months but as you've experienced it takes patience. You learn as you go and before you know it you have a dozen comments in a day :)
