2011 in review
2011 was an amazing year! I set myself a few targets at the start of the year and I’m so pleased to report that I did hit them.
I took up a challenge at church to read the Bible through in a year. This was no mean feat especially when it came to books like Leviticus! Many times I fell behind and had to read several chapters at one sitting just to catch up. However I was determined not to give up and with God’s help, I made it.
In February, in a bid to write more regularly, I took up the WordPress challenge to blog every week. Though I didn’t manage to blog every single week, I did get round to writing 63 posts thus exceeding the targeted 52! Besides blogging, I completed one novella and one novel and also made great progress on another.
I signed up to the National Novel Writing Month to write a 50,000-word novel during the month of November. I blogged about it and have been posting excerpts of the story so you probably already know that I completed that as well.
Let me take this opportunity to thank my top commenters, Joxy, Globetrotter, Myne, Kiru and Deronk. Your feedback is invaluable and reading it warms my heart every single time. Thank you for your support and encouragement. May this year bring you much joy and success in all your endeavours.
I am aware that not everyone who reads the posts comments so I would also like to thank everyone who visited the blog last year. Thank you so very much for stopping by and taking the time to read what I write.
Please spread the word and share this blog with your friends and family to help make 2012 an even more productive year for this blog and for me as a writer. I look forward to the post announcing a publishing contract really soon 🙂
The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2011 annual report for my blog and I’d like to share it with you. Please enjoy!
Here’s an excerpt:
The concert hall at the Syndey Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 8,800 times in 2011. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 3 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.
