I don’t normally celebrate Thanksgiving today as I am not in North America but since most of my readers do, and since I have a lot to be thankful for, I decided to give it a shot 😉
Smooth relocation to Spain – check!
Many of you commented on my previous post about my relocation trip to Spain. Thank you all for taking interest into my whereabouts and well being. I am happy to share with you that the Spanish relocation adventure is completed – we are now settled in our new (temporary) home.
Here’s a sneak peek into my office 😉
My blog is slowly picking up!
Although I have not given my blog even one tenth of the attention it deserves, I am happy it is slowly picking up. It’s been almost 9 months since I started blogging here on regular basis and gladly, it has attracted more than 6600 unique visitors (and growing!). How cool is that?! Now let’s see how many of them I can turn into loyal readers, shall we 😀
Kidding aside – thank you, my loyal readers and commenters! You inspire me and motivate me on daily basis – with you for audience, blogging and networking is a pleasure!
New projects lining up, too…
Not to reveal too much but… here’s what’s cooking.
I am planning to take my email marketing seriously soon. This includes releasing a white paper/ebook to give for free to all my existing and new subscribers. It’s about formatting your blog posts for readers and search engines alike so stay tuned. Sign-up here, if you have not yet done so.
In a more long-term perspective, I have a few big projects coming up. Writing my very first book (e- or not, will see), writing some training courses (with classes, and exercises, and all), launching my very first online business…
Stick around to find out what will come first!
And something to make you smile 😉
No, this is not my cat (I saw her on the beach one day!) but I have heard cats help posts go viral 😛
Lorraine Marie Reguly says
Happy Thanksgiving you lucky lady. That view is breathtaking! Congrats on your achievements, too! I have a few things planned for the new year as well. 😉
Good luck with going viral. At least you made me laugh! Out loud, too! 🙂
hahaha, don’t know if the post would go viral (highly doubt it – it wasn’t written for that!) but i am glad i made you laugh out loud – this means the cat served its purpose. now i should find it and give it a treat of some kind for a job well done 😉
Happy Thanksgiving to you, Lorraine 😀 and thanks for being a loyal reader and commenter 😉
I like the cat. Thanks for the Thanksgiving wishes. I’m also celebrating Chanukah. Actually, what I’m celebrating is a day of doing not a lot. I love your spot on the deck. Would love to come visit.
Thanks for your comment, Leora – and happy Chanukah to you! 😀 Doing not a lot is good – doing nothing is what i practiced the past 3 days (although not celebrating anything LOL). As for my spot – if you find your way to Southern Spain – i would sure love to share a mojito with you on my terraza.
And you know what? I have a special thanks to give to you so i am glad you left a comment today. Remember your post about pixlr tool? I am LOVING it. Using it like 10 times per week for all blogs and newsletters i run and manage. You did save a lot of time and energy for me with that post so a big thank you is due again and again! 😀
Thank you so much, for your thoughtful wishes. Really appreciated. Great view! Continued blessings, and success.
Thanks for stopping by, Parrillaturi! Have a great day and weekend ahead!
Happy Thanks giving Diana, actually the cat got my attention the reason is i too have the same cat at my home and I love it.
ha-ha, well, i promise – it’s not your cat LOL – have a great day and thanks for stopping by, Samir!

I’ll take your office view over mine anyway. Also love the short hair too. I had mine that short years ago and have been thinking about giving it a try again.
the view used to be distracting – now i miss it when i cannot work outside (as it gets cold here too!). As for the hair – i was like this as a child, then through high-school, too – and since then, i grow it for a few months or years only to cut it super short afterwords. It is a pattern now – every 5 years or so; i guess i get bored easily… Send me a pic when you cut yours so short 😀

Happy Thanksguving to you too I agree, we all have much to be thankful for.
I am so happy that your blog is picking up. I know that will continue. Cat pictures may help… LOL. Oh, and I’m so jealous of your view.
thanks, Susan – and everybody’s talking about the cat – i should have given her a name, i knew it! LOL

I don’t know if I could concentrate on my writing with that view. It’s cold here in NY. I envy your ability to sit outside in the sunshine. Congratulations on having so many visitors to your blog.
The view was distracting at first but now i miss it when i can’t sit outside. It is getting cold here, too – well, not as cold as in NY for sure but… cold enough to look at the view from behind the window LOL. Thanks for your support and encouragement, Jeannette!
Congrats on the successful move and nice location!
And your plans for the new year are certainly inspiring.
I am also working on an online course. I will hopefully get video 2 done this week if my cough finally abates after 8 days. Coughing on video is not recommended I guess.
I was also thinking of cutting my hair real short this xmas, as I am slowly losing it all anyway. Different reason to you i guess.
I think I also started out about 9 months ago with you, so great work this year and all the best for 2014
hahaha, in my public speaking classes a while back, they taught us that coughing is actually a pretty good trick to humanize the public speaker and make the audience relate better. But yeah, i guess they didn’t mean having a cold and coughing your lungs out in front of the camera 😀
Thanks for your encouragement and support, Ash – and ahead to a super exciting 2014 😉

So exciting and so much going on. Isn’t it wonderful having a life so full of opportunity? 🙂 As we approach the new year I am amazed at everything that has happened in the last 12 months. You must feel the same way, maybe more so. You started a blog, you’re starting a business and you moved to a new country. What on Earth will you do next year? 🙂
hahahaha, right, what on Earth i will do next year LOL – Debra, my head is spinning when i think about it because… maybe it’s human nature – the more we have, the more we want, right? So i want a even more exciting 2014 – how’s that for a plan 😉
