This is my last Digest of the year, and thank goodness this year is coming to an end though next year probably won’t be too different, at least at first.
Instead of picking a topic or two to ramble about, I want to take a moment to thank all of you for reading, enjoying, and putting up with all the changes I do around here. I’ve loved getting to know and interacting with you. Needless to say, chatting with everyone here has been so lovely especially since I’ve barely been outside since March. I appreciate all of you and the pieces of beautiful all of you offer. Thank you so much for being here and for enjoying this space.
This past year has felt like an avalanche of things I need to do, reviews I need to write, posts I need to finish and publish. Taking a moment to say thank you has never been far from my mind, but became buried under all the obligations I had over my head. But I couldn’t end the year without taking time to thank all of you. It’s been a tough year for all of us, and it just means so much to me that, with all the craziness, you still take a moment to check out what I have to share and engage with me about it. Whether you’ve enjoyed or hated what I’ve shared, thank you. Whether you’ve been here for years or just started dropping by or are just stumbling into my little Cafe right now, thank you.
When I started up this blog again in 2018, I thought I’d have a bit of a fun, maybe make a friend or two. I didn’t expect that, nearly 3 years later, I’d have gained almost 2000 lovely souls interested in my little space, much less that I’d make some wonderful blogging friends. While I’d probably still happily write into a vacuum, I really am glad for and so appreciative of all of you. You really make everything I put into this worthwhile, and I hope I’m able to offer something, anything, to you.
Thank you so much, and here’s to a hopefully better new year!
And drop me a link to your blog/blog post and/or someone else’s. I’m always looking for new blogs to follow!
