This is my 200th post! (In case you're curious, this was the very first one, way back in May 2010).
I started this blog 200 posts ago so that Jeff and I could keep our family and friends in the loop about our lives abroad. Moving to a new country with not much more than our dogs and a few suitcases was a big deal and our people back in the US wanted to know what we were up to. We also wanted to document our travels and the things we experienced in this part of the world for our own posterity.
At first, it was just our parents and a few friends who read this blog. I had no idea anyone else would start paying attention. Now we have a small, but steady readership (thanks you guys!). Thanks to this blog, we've made some great friendships and connections while living abroad. Neither of us expected it to become a helpful tool in the relocation process, for us or for other people looking to move to Singapore.
So I just wanted to say thanks to everyone who follows this blog. Thanks to the people who leave comments and to those who just lurk around. Thanks to the people who recommend our blog to others and link back to it. Thanks to the friends and acquaintances we've made, both on the interwebs and IRL.
Blogging is fun for me, and I enjoy the challenges that come with trying to keep things interesting around here. I like looking at my older posts and seeing how my writing and photos have evolved. I hope to keep learning and improving and, who knows, maybe I can keep this up for another 200.
