Happy New Year - 2008

2008 - I like the way 2008 looks on the page, the way it "writes." I know it sounds a bit silly but some words just look good and while 2008 isn't a word, it is a good looking number. Maybe that means it is going to be a good year for me.....I think so. I really think so. Maybe I'm in a optimistic mood. I've been looking back over the blog in 2007 and the blog entries are a good reminder of what I was thinking and doing last year. Some things came to fruition and others didn't. But 2007 was a pretty good year too. Still I'm thinking that 2008 may be even better. We have a long drive ahead of us tomorrow.....Laredo to San Miguel de Allende.....so I'll have some "thinking" time.

But one think that I've started to feel recently is that writing the blog so that it is fresh and doesn't just repeat old information is getting harder. I'm not sure what is going to happen to the blog in 2008.

I wish all my readers a wonderful, healthy 2008.
Happy New Year!

Hola Amiga,

I have been thinking the same things – I like the looks of 2008 and I have started looking back into my Blog to edit it, perhaps condense it and maybe even discontinue or change what I write about.

I enjoy the benefit of going back several years and reading what I was thinking or doing – this is in part the diary feature that becomes more personal – a journal of time of your life information.

In other thinking Mexico is changing and my life continues to evolve – there are still plenty of things to experience and write about – hmmmm – now you have me thinking. I look forward to what you thought about on your trip – have a safe one. Happy New Year to you and Ned.

I've been feeling a little drained myself, trying to find something fresh to write about every day or so. I know how you're feeling.

Between the flu and ennui, my posts became lifeless and strained just before we left for Buenos Aires.

A new country, a new continent has stimulated me. I'm enjoying writing more, and at least one commenter has noticed, writing "you're back!"

I hope you keep on blogginb, Billie. When I see a new post in Billieblog, it brightens my day.

Happy New Year to you, Billie! I so enjoy reading your blog and hope that it will continue through the coming year. Safe travels home to SMA.

Here's to a good year...

You better NOT even think of NOT blogging - only blog when you feel like it - not for anyone else! You are the "light" of my day!

Hey, I'm not throwing in the towel but the blog needs to change up some.....after all, I've been doing this almost 3 years.

I know what is going to happen to your blog in 2008. You will continue to post those marvelous pictures for us all to oooh and aaah over, you will continue to keep us updated on all the wonderful festivals and you will continue to make our mouths water and wish we were sitting at your dining room table. Can't wait to see what you have in store for us!

Happy New Year! I think 2008 has a great ring to it, but then again, I've always loved even numbers (wierd I know!).

Please don't stop blogging. I love looking at your pics and hearing about life in Mexico.
