Random bits of my life

First Year of Blogging

Posted by Avital Pinnick on June 30, 2010

Bulletin Board

June 28 marked the first full year of this blog. I had hoped to mark the day with an interesting post but I was much too preoccupied with problems at work to think about my blog. So here it is, better late than never (and a less interesting posting is better than not writing at all because inspiration hasn’t struck). I took this photo after I got off the minibus this evening. There are several bulletin boards in my neighbourhood and they accumulate a fascinating assortment of layers, bits of papers, pictures, apartments for sale, camp announcements, dress sales, and so on. I never noticed before that the board underneath is wood!

My very first posting called Video 1: How to Make Boiled Kubbeh, a cooking video that I recorded in my office. Yinnon, whose pre-wedding photos were presented in my last blog posting (June 25) starred in that video. Interesting that we’re still the same basic group, me, Masha, and Yinnon, but now in a different room, on a different floor, and with a fourth officemate, Chaim.

Stats for year 1 of this blog:

I write about photography, food, crafts, and Israel, but photography seems to have taken over by a margin, according to my category totals:

  • Photography (106)
  • Israel (68)
  • Crafts (36)
  • Food (33)

I should note that some of these categories overlap, that is, a posting might be tagged with two categories.

And I’ve received 464 comments. Thank-you! I appreciate the comments and links that you’ve left on my blog and I’ve tried to comment as well. I realise that this blog is a bit quirky — not quite a photography blog or a craft blog or a food blog and not quite political enough to be included in lists of Israeli blogs. Hmmm. A bit like me… 🙂

    Mazal tov on your first year of blogging! The geek in me loves the stats. I hope I do as well as you when the time comes.

    PS — I think a Doctor Who post is in order….

    Congrats on your blogaversary!! Hooray. I just passed my 1st year too! That periodic table sweater is pretty super cool! Btw, I took your suggestion and made a sauce out of my peppers. It came out great 🙂

    I completely missed your blogging birthday! But then I have been missing a lot lately!

    I can not believe it has been a whole year already. It doesn’t seem possible.

    Look at all you have given us in that time! I appreciate having had the chance to get to know you a little better and to share in the moments of your life you have so beautifully shared here.

    I am looking forward to year number #2.
