As 2021 dwindles to an end, I’d like to reflect how it went writing a post every single day of the year. To sum it up in a few words: I loved it. Was it always easy? No, especially this month (December) as I came down with Covid! The worst symptom was a sore throat that lasted for days but it also sapped my energy and motivation to write. That’s why, for the first time ever, I welcomed a guest post and it came from the best man I know…my dad. Here’s that post from Christmas day.
But in the previous 11 months I posted about so many parts of my life: dating, leaving Tennessee, stories about my dogs, original satire, and TV commercials. It was these TV ad posts that I seemed to enjoy the most, mostly because I already had a personal reaction to the commercial and thought readers might, too.
Among these, three popular posts are as follows:
I also posted every so often about photographs I had taken from various hikes or trips. You can find more of my photography (and find a few to purchase) by checking out my page on the FineArtAmerica website, but for those posts I mentioned, here are a some favorites:
Fawns at Dawn – Radnor Lake, Tennessee
Pensacola – A Beach Tour
Kentucky Sunrise – Complete with Fog
And of course, the dating. I’ve said before and I’ll say it again: if you’re in a relationship and don’t have to deal with the dating scene, be grateful! My most recent date did this to me, but actually I had a handful of fun dates before I moved out of Nashville. I don’t actually write about the good ones often, so here are a couple “almost” dates.
Posting every day has been a real source of joy in 2021 and I don’t plan on changing a thing in 2022… Except maybe writing more about the good dates? Anyway, a big thanks to each one of you who have stumbled on my blog for one reason or another. I appreciate you very much and hope to at least provide a laugh or a bit of entertainment for you in the next 365 days.
So until we meet again tomorrow, have a fabulous final few hours of 2021!
