2011 - Domesblissity in review


This was my first year of blogging and what a great time I've had. Blogging about what I do on a daily basis seemed to make my life sound a bit more interesting than it actually was. Occasionally I'd get 'blogger's block' and find something meaningless and boring to write about and most times these posts attracted the most number of comments. I've had some interesting searches bring readers to my blog as well as my loyal followers, checking in on a daily basis to the drivel that exudes from my fingertips. I'm forever grateful that you've joined me in 2011 for the ride and I hope you'll find something more interesting that tantalises your tastebuds in 2012.

I've got about 300 blogs in my Google Reader that I spend way too much time reading and not enough time 'doing'. I am going to be more strict with myself and my computer time in 2012 and limit it to the evenings. I really need to get the house in order, spend some time doing stuff for me (other than reading people's blogs) and getting fit and healthy. Thanks again for being here with me in 2011 and getting an insight into an attempt at a 'domesblisstic' life.

  1. I have had so much fun reading.

    Let me think if I can think of a top 5 right off the top of my head.

    The first thing I made of yours was some chocolate, coconut slice, (way back when your blog looked like a big chocolate bar), basic muffins, thai beef satay, lamingtons ( which I will request when I meet you some day) and hmm....I couldn't possibly pick a 5th. I love it all!

    So happy that you've chosen to blog too.

    It's so tempting to want to read every single one when there are so many fabulous blogs out there, isn't it?

    Have a wonderful New Year, Anne!
