1 Year of Blogging

October 12, 2008

Today is a bit of a mile stone. For me, anyway. It was exactly one year ago since I started this blog, A Good Life. Here’s my first bog post, It’s a Good Life, which will give you some background as to why I picked up the “pen” in the first place. (See more thoughts on the About page, as well as Why We Should Write.)


First I felt nervous. Could I really do this? I didn’t want to start something I couldn’t finish. Would I even have the time?


But just like most things in life, it went okay once I got started. Sure, it’s been hard work and many late nights, but the rewards have outmatched the sacrifices by miles. So…


maybe I’ll continue for one more year.😉

PS. Thanks for wonderful support and encouraging comments throughout this year. Isn’t it great how we can get energized by each other? I appreciate you all!

    Congratulations to your blog on reaching its first anniversay. It doesn’t really seem like that long – but then I only started reading it earlier this year. I hope you’ll be able to keep up with it, because you certainly have some very pertinent things to say, as well as some great photos to display. However I do understand that things can get a little onerous at times, particularly when you may be busy and just don’t seem to have the time to fit it all in (that’s when the late nights come into the picture). But even if it’s only once a week, or once a fortnight – its well worth it!

    Beyond doubt Louis; we appreciate you as well!
    As I said when signing your guestbook about 8 months ago, I’m sure you have achieved your goal to be of inspiration to many people.
    That is obvious by the amount of positive feedback you receive.

    So keep up the good work! I know how hard it can be sometimes to make time for blogging (…) but I guess a solution may be – as you say – making use of the late hours (yawn..)😉
