I'm so sleepy, but I want to do this post before I find that 2007 has vanished. What a year this has been! I made many changes to my blog this year. I realized how many when I looked here and saw how my blog looked in the summer of 2006. What a difference!
I wanted to change the look and feel of my blog and I did it. I also wanted to include some advertisements, which I did by joining the Blogher Ad Network and the Boston Blogs Ad Network. So far, I'm not making much money, but every bit helps. I gave much of it away to a local organization that provides food to those in need. I had given to them before, but because of your support, I was able to give a little more than I could have otherwise. Thank you! Another thing that I finally did this year was organize my recipes. I had lots of random pages in folders and couldn't find anything. Over years, I had cut recipes out of magazines, newspapers, and printed them out from blogs. It was getting totally out of hand. Over about a week, I threw out a bunch of recipes, then organized the remaining ones by type and put them into four notebooks. What a joy it is to look for recipes now! I actually find what I'm looking for.
I'm doing the Homemade Bread Pledge that I mentioned here, which will be an event going from 2007 into 2008. Keeping my pledge is one of my goals for the new year. So far so good! I also want to organize all the recipes on this blog, so they are easier to find.
In 2008, there are some other blog changes that I'd like to make, but I'll keep some to myself. I'd rather make the changes and then let you see them. I'm submitting this post as part of Nupur's Best of 2007 Event. On New Year's Day, there will be a Roundup of all the posts. It will be interesting to see what everyone did this year. Have you made any resolutions for 2008?
