  • Funds Raised (including the ongoing Skate for a Cure): $800 for local causes, mostly thanks to Blogathon.
  • I got to be in studio for the production of Hospital Music, do an Amazing Hunt (twice), interview a band at the Commodore, spend time with some amazing new friends, keep tabs on Stanley Park, be on TV, radio, in the paper a couple times, featured in a magazine, and met hockey legends.

    This year in blogging has had its up and downs. I’ve considered giving it all up and stopped myself numerous times from just screaming at the world for its unjustices through a blog post or twelve. The year started off pretty rocky and I must admit 2006 was the toughest I’ve had to face, alone AND with someone. 2007 was cruel at the beginning but things brightened up in many ways.

    I’m thankful for all you readers out there who deem this site worth reading, the friends I’ve made, the job I’ve found, for my family that puts up with me sharing stories online (and inviting blogger friends to all my parties), and for my husband who always has faith in me, even when I’ve lost faith in myself.

    Cheers to 2008, I hope everyone has a safe and happy new year.

      Happy New Year’s Eve Rebecca, and hopefully your 2008 will be filled with love, health and happiness!

      I’ve started writing my Year in Review post, but too busy with family gatherings and stuff like that to put it up. Besides, I think I’ve already given a few hints as to what I’ve enjoyed and faced in 2007.

      Thanks to the both of you for sharing your time and a part of yourselves to the public.

      So much cool stuff in 2007 and lots to look forward to in ’08 (like how you get to be an auntie aggggain). I’d have to say this year started off as the most challenging in my life and ended off incredibly well.

      […] 2007 We met Duane Storey at the Northern Voice conference and I began hanging out with a wonderful girl named Keira-Anne. Sean and Booth were welcomed into our family and thus I became an auntie again. I also started blogging for a cause (raising $800 for local charities that year) and I wrote a Year in Review blog post. […]
