I have great reason to celebrate: one year of blogging!
Well, one year and something….
Although this post is rather late, mainly due to a really heavy teaching schedule in July and August, I have been thinking about it and writing bits and bytes whenever I had a few minutes.
On the 1st of July in 2009, I posted my first post, not really knowing where this would lead me, not expecting the rich rewards blogging has brought me!
In these first twelve months, I wrote 40 blog posts, not a very great number compared to the output of some of the bloggers who are featured on my blogroll, but for me, given the time some of my posts take to give birth to, quite a good number!
Time for some stock-taking then… What has this year of blogging given me?
Apart from the obvious – an unexpected number of visitors, a few thousand eyes which read my posts and commented on them, a few honourable mentions in the annual blogger awards – there were tremendous additional gains for me and this is what this post is about.
