fat year

As fat as this year seems to have been, it has not been as fat as I thought , it has been a year of lean cuts and high prices. Not an easy year to 'get fat' as it were. I made a 'vow' to do 365 blog posts in one year and on its own its seems like an easy task. Many would say that they could do that in one day but that isnt the 'idea' the task is to do something 'relevant' every single day (on average) in a year. I have not been the most 'relevant' but I have stuck to the task at hand, all my jokes aside.

It is not easy to be new every day. I made a lot of repeat dishes and posted jokes to fill in the blanks so perhaps and in reality I didnt do what I 'wanted' to do rather than I ended up doing what I 'had' to do.

365 posts later we are none the wiser definitely older and probably less funny. At least I dont have to be a serial poster anymore. Its like running a marathon - I can say I did it.

In the process of 'doing' this blog I made friends along the way, and some of those friends I ended up doing.....kidding just kidding.......not all of them were my friends.......kidding, still kidding........I didnt always make friends I was doing.....thats the truth, but I did walk away learning a little bit more about communication.

I will have a harder time 'not' having a blog than 'having' a blog.

Here is the year in review.
























See you next year!

Dana said...

You did it! Not at all an easy task. And if nothing else, one could say it was an interesting year of fairy tales ans resolve. I'm glad it ended on a good note!

Gina said...

I was really struck by one thought you's not easy being new every very true....

in fact that is (for me) the curse and blessing of one sense it is hard to find something to write about....but in forces you to look around and pay attention so you do have something to write about....

I was thinking recently of quitting the blog....but then I realized that blogging forced me to keep my eyes open on my life and day...and in the end ...that is a good thing.

Blessings in the new year.

I love all of your pictures especially April's. I am so impressed by the 365 and the ingenuity you exhibited- not boring at all, even to me who is not a foodie! Looking at the world new everyday is a mindfulness thing and no small feat. I have seen you grow in your blog posts and it's been a pleasure to meet you! Happy New Year Mr DoggyB !
