Tomorrow is the one year anniversary of englishnook. I can’t believe that it’s been a year since I started this blog. I can’t believe that I managed to get something posted each month even when my life was totally crazy. I can’t believe how excited I am for what the next year holds.
The first year of this blog was certainly a fledgling year. This blog was started as a project for class, and the idea literally came to me one night while I was driving home from class. I was already writing a personal blog, and it made sense to me to start a blog that was focused on English and teaching since that’s the field I’m in.
Some months the posts have been plentiful. Some months I’ve only managed to post once. One of my big hopes for this year is to schedule posts in advance so that there are regular posts for everyone who’s reading this blog and following this blog to see.
I’ve also made a few small changes. I added a page where I can post about the books I’m reading and my reading journal. The category “Pieces of Wisdom” has remained the same, but the quotes posts have been re-titled “Quotable Quotes”.
I also think it would be great to have more “Question of the Week” posts. I think it would be a great way to engage with readers and learn new things.
And of course, I’m always open to ideas and suggestions. If you have something that you want to share with me, by all means do so. I love hearing from my readers.
Happy early birthday to englishnook. Here’s to another great year.
I know that I haven’t posted in quite a while which isn’t fair to you, my readers. The truth of the matter is that I’ve been so busy between my internship, grad school, and the snow (so much snow!) that I haven’t been carving out proper time to sit down and blog. I have a lot of assignments going on for grad school right now as my semester only has about a month left. (Total craziness, I know!) I promise that with the start of a new month tomorrow (March starts tomorrow, guys!) that I will do my best to post more regularly. In the meanwhile, please don’t forget about me, because I certainly haven’t forgotten about all of you.
