Happy two year bloggiversary to me

Two years ago I started this blog with my first entry.
One year ago I looked back over the first twelve months.

People who know me, know that I love rituals, repetition and looking back. So it will be no surprise that I have to look back today and take count.

I am still blogging which makes me happy because it's almost the only regular writing for pleasure that I am doing. During the last 12 months I wrote blog entry #112 to #169 which makes for 57 new ones. I don't want to say only 57 because I kind of learnt not to put myself under too much pressure. Even though I wrote less, more people than last year stopped by (17720) and they left an amazing 455 comments (well it was probably only half of that because I always try to write back). Thank you all so much, it always makes my day and some of you have left comments so regularly that I feel very much loved.

I still mostly write about knitting, travelling and a bit of family stuff and a little bit of reading in between which sums up the good things of my life quite well.

I recently started writing daily in a paper journal again, something I used to do for about ten years but then I fell off the wagon. I started with a "365 questions and answers for five years" journal on the first of September and I really like answering a question a day so far.

Today's questions is: "A decision that you made today was..."
What would your own answer be?


  1. Congratulations on two years! I have been a long time reader of your blog and I have really enjoyed it. A decision I made today was to relax and take some time for's going to be a great day : )

    1. Thank you Christine!
      Your plan sounds great. I spent all day long together with my extended family and now I am glad that I can sit on my sofa just by myself.

  2. Congrats on your anniversary! I am always happy to be here! Decision I made today is to become better at time management - especially make more time for relaxing and for spending more time with my family! Looking forward to more blog posts from you! I absolutely adore your knitting and your travel entries!

    1. thank you Alina. Spending time wisely seems important to all of us.
