Today (oops! missed 1st jan by 20 minutes – it should have been posted on 1st Jan, not 2nd jan) marks One Year since trippingdifferently.com came into existence and i started blogging here. (You can read about this blog’s previous life here.)
WordPress has done a great job of summarising the year for me:
- There have been 167 posts in 2012.
- There have been about 6,600 visitors from 65 countries!
And i would like to give a special thanks to my top 3 commentors for showing me and my blog such love:
- Char from Joy In The Moments
- Elizabeth from FictionForge
- M from BakingCraftingThinking
Thanks so much ladies for showing my blog and my writing such attention and love. i am very grateful and it has been wonderfully encouraging to read comments from everyone.
i know i have a number of followers as well and i thank you also. (i apologise if i have not gotten back to visiting your blog yet… i will… it will just take me some time…) It is amazing to realise that my words are being read and that people appreciate them enough to click “Follow”. Thank you very much.
i started trippingdifferently.com, hoping to bring more to my blog, more about Switzeland where we live, more about parenting, more about writing, more about photography…
it turned out different – isn’t that what life is all about? – i did get to bring more to my blog but it has brought so much more to me; more than i could ever imagine…
i have met wonderful people in blogosphere and have gained so much from their writing. i have learnt and grown and matured as a writer through this whole year.
God has also allowed me to be of good use in His Kingdom plans; He has allowed me to become an advocate and prayer warrior for those without a voice of their own; for special needs orphans. If you have followed from the start, you would realised that from about the third month of its existence, more than 60% of this blog is devoted to special needs orphans. It will continue to be so. (Click here to read more posts about the orphans and how you can help too. Click here to read about some families who are in the adoption process and how you can help.)
However, in 2013, i also hope to be able to bring more of my writing life (perhaps more in the form of shared articles about writing as i am so “young” in my writing life) and more of my photography onto this blog. Of course, our happenings in Switzerland and our travels will also be featured at times.
So here’s to 2013 and wishing you all a fulfilling year!
Thank you once again for reading and loving on my blog. Hope you will continue tripping differently with me.
