Year 2: Top 10 posts of 2010

Yesterday was my official second blogiversary, but I got my dates confused, which is apt to happen when you're on vacation. This has been another fabulous year and for some unknown reason I went back to reading and found myself writing a lot of reviews. I also discovered that I liked making my own non-toxic cosmetics, the perfect type of recipe, the one you can't eat. I also struggled with a Twitter addiction last February, which I eventually beat. But did reading replace it...

A lot of people thought that I'd lose interest in blogging, but the opposite is true. The more I blog, the more I like it. But I've discovered that Blogger, my current blogging platform, has a lot of limitations. I may change it early in the New Year, so don't be surprised if one day you arrive at a brand new blog

I'd like to welcome all my new followers and readers who joined me this year. A large part of my traffic now comes from Blogger itself. This will be a big year because we are moving three metro stations north of our current location, which is sad yet exciting news. I also hope to broaden my blogging horizons and create my own vidcast (a blog post by video). That is, once I figure out all the video features on my camera. In case you didn't know: last year I did a podcast interview with Sonja Ahlers for Bitch Magazine, the Make-Believe edition.

Happy New Year!
