Happy New Year!
Sorry I couldn’t post any earlier. Came back from India and immediately started my winter quarter. While I was celebrating New Year’s, WordPress sent me a little statistics report for the year. I was stunned when I saw that this blog has gotten over 5,000 hits. So I wanted to express my heartfelt gratitude to all those who supported me and facilitated my growth. I would like to thank Mr. Brad Dowdy [The Pen Addict] for his kind words, and for featuring my blog in his weekend links, Mrs. Azizah Asgarali [Gourmet Pens] for her advice on how I post my content, and her encouraging words, and finally to you, the readers for keeping me focused, and enthusiastic about posting my reviews. If not for all of you, I may have given up early on. (I’ll make the statistics viewable to all of you, check them out 🙂 )
As part of my New Year’s resolutions, I have promised myself that I will be punctual with posts and will try to get at least 2 ink reviews and 2 stationary reviews every month till the end of the year. I noticed how flaky I was with my promises of new content and ink reviews, and for that, I apologize. Suffice to say, that will not be the case starting this year. While school will take the highest priority, this will be a good exercise in time management, a skill I have yet to master.
I have gotten a ton of pens for Christmas, and some are still on the way. Without further ado, I declare that starting Monday, I resume my journey, with new pens, new calligraphic scripts, an open mind, and curiosity as my guide.
