One year ago this week, we started blogging as Downsizing The Home to share some of the sanity-saving tips, practical strategies, helpful advice – and dare I say wisdom – we had gained in writing our book, Moving On: A Practical Guide to Downsizing the Family Home.
Many bloggers commemorate a year by choosing favorite posts and I certainly have mine. I have fond feelings for the times when I’ve written about my family and how we deal with our stuff but I’m also proud of our more practical posts where we have connected our readers to the insight of others with links to websites, other blogs, and events.
But what I’m really pleased about is the many followers we have on Twitter and the feedback we get from them. We have been warmly received by a larger community and this has broadened our world. Thanks for including us and for retweeting our tweets!
We are thankful to those of you who have subscribed to our blog, so appreciative that you have welcomed us into your life each week. One of our aims for the coming year is to encourage more of our subscribers to comment on our posts. We would like to hear what you have to say. Let us know what you are thinking and how we can be more helpful.
It seems appropriate in this week before Thanksgiving that we acknowledge our gratitude so a big thank-you to everyone who has touched our lives through our blog.
