a brand-new year’s non-reflection

a brand-new year’s non-reflection


It’s the cusp of the brand-new year and after a couple of weeks of burning the candle light at both ends, I’m anticipating calling in 2019 on the sofa, relaxing about.

The modification of year does not truly motivate deep reflection in me the method it appears to for a lot of others. I do not do much soul browsing, and I definitely do not make any resolutions. So, I have absolutely nothing extensive to share here prior to the countdown to midnight. On the contrary, I have just one shallow musing to publish, and after that I prepare to go back to seeing Netflix.

A couple of days ago I examined my blog site statistics and was thrilled to see that in the previous year, it has actually read by individuals in practically 150 nations. And in the 5 years that I have actually been composing on this website, individuals in about 175 nations have actually checked out.

I have actually got a United Nations of blog site readers. Somebody in Brunei has actually read my blog site! French Polynesia! Kuwait!

As I stated, I have no resolutions for 2019, however among my objectives is to get somebody from Suriname to read my blog site. Likewise Guyana and French Guiana. Main African Republic and Equatorial Guinea, too. Madagascar. And so on. It would be truly, truly cool if in 2019 I might state that every nation worldwide has actually visited my blog site.

On that note, THANK YOU A Lot for taking an interest in my little corner of the web this year. Despite the fact that this post does not make a great case for it, you are all a lot more than numbers to me. I am extremely grateful for every single post you have actually checked out, “like” you have actually offered, and comment you have actually left. It makes me feel seen– as weird as that might appear for somebody who a. hardly posts photos of herself and b. is deeply negative about the digital world.

Anyhow …

Delighted brand-new year! I hope 2019 brings you much pleasure, laughter, and magic.
