One fantastic on-going on-line conversation with like-minded women – Julie, thank you so much for inviting me to join The Hand Mirror.
Several off-blog conversations with interesting people – you know who you are – ideas exchanged, support given, support received, in good days and bad. Thank you to my e-friends.
About ten posts included in carnivals of feminists and atheists.
Most popular post – the best playground in the world – about 2,400 views to date. I think it must come up in people’s search terms.
Most mysterious incoming link – to a post on the costs of parenting. Somewhere, on some forum for people who are both atheists and child-free, around the middle of June this year, people were talking about what I had written, or so said the ‘incoming links’ and ‘referring sites’ in my stats counter. But I could not see what was being said about what I had written.
Connection with family and friends back home.
Participation in a wonderful project with wonderful women at The Hand Mirror.
A growing sense of community with like-minded women and men here in Australia and back in New Zealand, with people whose spirits speak to mine.
Starting to find my own voice.
