2010 in review

I would like to wish everybody a successful, healthy, and happy new year!

Yesterday, I got back from my Germany trip and it’s good to be back in NY.
I took some time this morning to sort through the pile of emails in my inbox and I found an awesome message from wordpress.com that reviews how this blog did in 2010. Periodically, I had been checking the stats but I was surprised to find how good they look when you put them into a full year summary.

So, before I share this email with you, I would like to thank you, the reader, for finding the posts here worth your time. I am very thankful for your consideration and your interest and I hope I won’t let you down in the coming year! I would also like to thank all the people who were gracious enough to share a link to my blog on their page. I know there are so many good sites out there that I feel very lucky for every single link!


So, here is the email with the 2010 review:
