i think these retrospective type posts are my favorites or are one of the reasons why i keep blogging even if it's a rare event nowadays. i spent most of 2014 not working (jokingly refered to as my sabbatical) and... Continue reading

remember when we all did memes on our blogs? it was always fun finding out stuff about people that you didn't know, sometimes leading to real life relationships? remember when? they were also great for when you didn't have a... Continue reading

i've been following your blog for quite some time but this is my first time commenting. i've been blogging for 8 or 9 years now. i honestly don't know anymore. my blog has always been a creative outlet for me as my work doesn't really allow me to express myself that way. i used to have a lot of readers, i used to post regularly, but with other social media out there, my readership has dwindled. and that's ok. like lina said, i blog for myself. and there are times i go weeks with nary a peep. and that's ok. i think this should be fun. and too often once we make something we love doing obligatory we lose that element of fun. i am going to follow you in instagram. what i really like most is looking at pretty pictures. and i love these shots of new york. whatever you decide, best to you.
