Celebrating one Year of Blogging

On the 10th July 2008 I wrote my first blog post. No, that isn’t right. I wrote my first blog post with the intention to keep on blogging in English and on WordPress.com.

Before that time I had a German blog which I wrote on in a rather sporadic manner. There wasn’t much traffic coming in, and most of the traffic came from English speaking countries. They liked my pics but could not understand the writing. So I decided  finally to change the host to WordPress and the language to English.

Looking back to the months of blogging since July 2008 I can only say that it was one year full of learning:

  • I got in contact with a crowd of helpful, kind, communicative people. Here’s to Robert Hruzek, Brad Shorr, Joanna Young, Rosa Say, Karen Swim, Jackie Cameron and Barbara Ling!
  • I learned to offer a mixture of photos, drawings (took me some spoonfuls of courage pills to show them to the public!), writings, videos.
  • I learned to keep up blogging three times a week (I began with that on January 2009 and managed to keep that schedule).
  • I learned to participate in group writing projects (sorry not to participate in July’s group writing project, but could not manage it this month, Robert!).
  • And learning all that I additionally learned to see myself as a citizen of the world, and at the same time, got a sharper understanding of myself as a European and German).

So I am looking forward to another year of blogging!



About Ulla Hennig

I live and work in Berlin. Taking photos is one of my hobbies, and writing is one of my hobbies, too. So I decided not only to show some of my pictures here but also present some of the thought which came wth the pictures.

    Aww, you should see the big smile on my face! (Actually I can smile again – dentist’s work is done.)
    It is so nice to have you here! Anyone a cup of coffee or a cup of tea? A piece of that lovely black bread or some delicious German cake? All that’s on the house, my dear friends!
