Happy New Year

Thursday, December 31st, 2009

So I accept that I’ve not posted a lot this year, I have no real excuse short of lack of energy.

In reality it’s been a great year, I’ve changed my life in ways that I could never have expected. I live on the other side of the world, I have a job that I love that is also a genuine career move. I’ve reconnected with a ton of people that I’d lost contact with and made-up with a few people that I’d fallen out with. In general I’ve been having a fantastic time.

2009 has been, all things considered, a pretty good year for me.

But not for everyone, so I don’t want to go on about my life too much. There are swings, and there are roundabouts. For those of you whose 2009 hasn’t been that great I can only wish that the worst is over, and 2010 brings better fortune.

Thank you for reading my continued ramblings, sorry for the complete lack of content last year but I will make it my 2010 resolution to make, on average, one post per week for the whole of 2010, and I mean proper posts — no filler, or link dumps. The first step is the new banner, the old EU2008 banners are still pinned to their associated posts in the archives … and, yes, I will get round to doing the missing country posts at some point.

52 original posts, how hard can it be?

Yeah, let’s see how that goes.

But finally:

Happy New Year everyone, I hope that 2010 gives you everything you need, and ideally everything you want.

See you all in the next decade!

Merry Christmas

Well, is anyone still here?

I have to admit it’s been a while since I posted anything useful … perhaps 2010 will see a better posting record, who knows …

However, I’d like to wish all of you still reading a Merry Christmas and ask that you check back in the New Year to see if I have something interesting to share then.

Have a great holiday, look for more posts in a few days.
