We have survived the opulence of the holidays and there is only a tiny portion of 2013 left.
Yawn … another post on gratitude and resolutions?
We are drowning in posts, article, tweets and pins of eternal gratitude and New Year’s resolutions. I beg not to be misunderstood: nothing wrong with that and kudos to those committing to resolutions and sticking to them for more than 2 hours.
It is not my thing because I have finally acknowledged I belong to the latter group.
It has been quite a year IRL and I am most thankful for all the wonderful friends (ah NO, she is doing it after all!) online, you carried me onward when I felt sad, you laughed with me about the fun stuff and you offered advice and encouragement.
Thank you so much – I hope I was able to do the same for you.
I am blessed to be surrounded by so many talented people, maybe you’d like to get to know some better:
Kaarina of Kaarina Dillabough: one day we will make our dream come true and enjoy Tuscany’s wonders together
Lori of Life, for Instance, courageous friend and stout supporter who invited me to her inspiring goggle+ hangouts
Mark of Mark Harai, marketing specialist and living in one of the most beautiful spots in this world
Joshua of Joshua Wilner, speed writer with a great family sense and fun to hang out with
Steve of True Spiritual Awakening, intuitive and caring friend
Carolyn of The Wonder of Tech: she knows all about the latest apps and gadgets and shares her knowledge in a way that even a technically challenged person (= ME) understands it
Do you do google+ Hangouts? They are great and be not surprised when something larger might develop from it.
The wonderful members of PBAU, a group of dedicated personal bloggers
Claudia of Social Media DDS, wonderful friend with a big heart and multi talented
Vidya of Vidya Sury who told me about her happy jar and only lives a courtyard away
Bill of billdorman who is still a very much felt presence online although he posts every six months now
My favourite food bloggers for the obvious reason:
Jamie of Life’s a Feast
Jeanne of Cook Sister
Meeta of What’s For Lunch, Honey?
Ilva of Lucullian Delights
A pleasure to see Jamie and Ilva together in Plated Stories
Ozoz of Kitchen Butterfly
Tandy of lavender and lime
Robert of Lamiacucina
How do I keep up with my online life and still get some sleep? I am a member of some groups on Facebook and I can only recommend becoming part of a group, sharing the same interests and supporting each other in social media marketing.
I am particularly grateful to be included in this awesome group KIWK.
My latest social media engagement this year has been joining Bloglovin and to able to claim my blog I was asked to include this in my latest post: Follow my blog with Bloglovin
I trust you will bear with me or even follow me there as well. Thank you.
My last post in 2012 was Liebster Blog Award and my wishes for a happy New Year were hopefully reinforced with the virtual offering of our Swiss good luck sign:
Lots of piglets
I had to downscale some this year and therefore I humbly present this year’s wishes with fewer pigs:
2014: one happy chocolate piglet
May you all prosper and grow in the direction envisaged,
enjoy good health and have fun along the way!
