Goodbye to 2013, and Hello 2014!

As I wrote in my Thanksgiving Day piece: “I’ve spent seven months of this year on a trip around the world, gone to the weddings of some of my most beloved people, celebrated my grandmother’s 80th birthday with the whole clan, and published a piece on a major website. It really has been a terrific year, and I’m grateful for every day of it. Can’t wait to see what 2014 brings.”

I don’t have much to add to that except to say that my New Year’s resolution for 2013 was to post five times a week for the whole year–and I did it! Every Monday through Friday, I posted something from my travels–a photo, a diary entry, a reflection on travel, and only occasionally a “ahh I am too busy to come up with anything today, but I haven’t forgotten you” post. People who work in media have to generate content (that’s the key phrase) all the time, but this is not my job, it is a side project and labor of love. Thus, the challenge of my New Year’s resolution, and my happiness in meeting it.

I won’t be posting every day Monday through Friday for 2014 like I did for 2013, but I will post often. I can’t say what the new year will bring, but plans include: traveling to South America, meeting up with my goddaughter somewhere this summer, posting at least twice a week on Stowaway, gaining more freelance editing clients, and writing for more publications. It’s going to be a good year.

  1. Happy New Year’s Eve to you, Lisa!

    Congratulations on making your goal of posting 5/week in 2013, and personally, I enjoyed very much your Sunrise/Sunset photos, along with the Where In The World posts, so please don’t feel apologetic about those – every one of your readers has had “Do Nothing Days”, and on yours “do nothing” does not equal Zero!

    I just read your article on travel insurance – excellent information and well written – your usual combination of humour and facts.

    Thank you for this year of sharing your very exciting and unusual adventures with us. It’s been one heck of a ride for you, and fun for us!

    All the Best for 2014!

    In Peace,

    Irene
