I just realized that it's my 7 months bloggoversary today!
The very first post (5 January, 2009) can be read here.
In honour of the Magician's Book and the Spell To Make Hidden Things Visible, what better way to celebrate than with a picture of a really old book. (From the museum I visited on Sunday.)
Just a few weeks after I started my blog, I got this Award from Rose-Anne in Australia, a penfriend of mine since long before the Internet. (It was also she who inspired me to start blogging in the first place.) It was one of those awards that you're supposed to pass on to a number of other people; which presented me with a bit of a problem, because at the time, I had no other blogging friends to pass it on to. So instead I made a promise to "continue to explore the vast ocean of the internet, and hopefully make some new friends visiting other random blog islands out there".
Looking back, I'm amazed at how this has actually come true. I might have to create an award myself one of these days, for some of you amazing people out there. For now, I'll just say THANK YOU to everyone who follows this blog and/or drops in from time to time to leave an encouraging comment. You keep me going... :)
