The Year in Blog

2011 was a pretty eventful year for me, and for this blog.  Although I started my blog years ago as a journal for my time in Australia, it was never used, never read, it just sat stagnant.  But once I finished my thesis, I felt the urge to keep on writing.  I picked the thing I was most enjoying doing at the time - cooking - and wrote about that.  And it worked, I kept it up, adding in links to my favourite food websites, and then eventually crafts, and book and dvd reviews.

Although I don't have many readers, I love the idea that someone I don't know is learning a new recipe or technique here from something I figured out or found out, or is inspired to read a book or watch a movie I love.  So thanks to everyone reading this, even if you've just accidentally stumbled upon this post looking for this little piece of awesomeness from Geek Crafts:
