Happy {belated} Birthday.

It occurred to me recently that it has been over a year since I started this blog- 57 weeks to be exact. 135 posts, 257 comments on the blog itself (more via the facebook feed), and over 6,100 page views latter and I’m still writing. I’ll be the first to admit that some posts have been better than others. I’m by no means an expert writer,  blogger, or a blogger with a huge following, but that’s not why I started this blog..

As I wrote in my first post on Blue Cake Blog, Blue Cakes Blog was created as a place for me to share my random thoughts and passions and document my experiences and adventures associated with our move from Los Angeles, CA to Hannover, Germany. So far, I think it’s been quite a trip.

To my few, but faithful readers: thanks for sticking by me this year. Your comments truly add a smile to my day. And to those of you who read “anonymously” on the web or via facebook, I appreciate you too. 🙂

*Now I’m turning over this post to you, my readers: post a comment and let me know:

-Why do you read Blue Cakes Blog?

-What whould you like to see more of on Blue Cakes Blog?

-Any other advice / constructive criticism regarding the future of this blog.

I encourage you to submit a comment even if you have never commented before. This is you chance to help shape the way this blog is run. I appreciate your comments!

Happy Birthday, Blog!

    I read Blue Cakes Blog because you write very well :). And because I know you and Drew. And because it gives me glimpses of a path not taken. And … 😉

    I would love to see more of your cooking on the blog, perhaps a random incident or two. You give us very nice descriptions of life in Germany, however it seems too well thought out at times. How about writing once a week without thinking too much, just letting it flow. Do you catch my drift?

    To confess you have made me consider writing a blog of my own about switching from physics to biology. So if my words don’t mean much, that should be a big enough compliment.

    Hi Pinkesh! Thanks for the comments! This is interesting to hear as I generally feel that my blog posts aren’t well even thought out enough… it’s nice to know that may not be the case. 🙂 I think a blog about your switch would be fun- go for it! 🙂

    I read because it helps us stay connected when we are over half a world apart. I realize this is just a “one-way” connection, but your lives are much more interesting than ours at this point, and your writing brings back lots of fond memories of when we were in post-grad training ourselves. Back then Oregon was probably more removed from Ohio (and my family) than Germany is from Wisconsin today!
