Happy Birthday Blog!

happy birthday LGNC black

Another birthday! This time, not mine, but this blog’s. Yep, it’s a year today since I started blogging here at Live.Grow.Nourish.Create.

I have broken the cardinal rule of blogging – to stick to one topic – and have rambled away randomly, from drawing to menstruation; from sewing to climate change; from reading to nutrition. Ah, well, someone must be reading, because I seem to have amassed over 200 followers, 14,000 page views and 1,300 comments. And even better, I have made some lovely blogging friends along the way :-).

Thank you to all who contributed to making blogging a fun and enriching experience this year. Here’s to the next one!

ps/ the font I used to write the birthday message is from The Scrapbooker’s Handwriting Workshop and is somewhat fittingly called “misfit”. Just thought you should know 😉

      My favourite English teacher at school wrote something in my leaver’s book about seeing an iconoclastic future for me…I always thought she would probably be terribly disappointed in me now. But hey, maybe not!!
