A New Year on the horizon, changes are afoot……….

2019 has been a shit year for us overall, but the best ever for my blog pensitivity101.
Thanks to all of you who showed your love and support at my most stressful time, your good wishes for a speedy recovery, and your caring comments for both Hubby and Maggie.
Thank you to everyone who has participated in the 3TC challenges and my efforts at Fibbing Friday. It’s my turn again this week.
Thank you to other bloggers who set photoprompts, word challenges or music themes which grab my interest and inspire me.
Thank you to everyone who reads my blog, likes my posts and leaves a comment.
My blog would be nothing without you.

I’ve been busy, having written over 2,500 posts and almost half a million words duringΒ  2019. November saw my best ever views at 12, 788, with December my second best. Highest views in one day were 677 in November, though I had another day top the 600 mark as well. Total views for the year as I type are creeping up towards 113,000 of the 358K since I started in September 2013.
But we all know it is not all about the viewing figures, though I appreciate every single one, the same as I appreciate my followers, friends, and my blogging family.Over the Christmas break I’ve had a hard look at what I’m doing.
A lot of my day is spent at the keyboard (no wonder I’m wearing the letters out!) and I conclude that I talk post too much, so will be reducing my output.
I’m still going to set my challenges though, but won’t be doing a separate post for my 3TC responses and instead include them at the bottom.

Going through the cupboard I found my book of short stories, so I might expand on a few of those and put them out. I don’t kid myself I’m a budding author, but they were fun to write at the time and like my old poetry, with a bit of tweaking might be of interest.
I’ll still contribute my five eggs worth to the challenges I enjoy, though maybe it won’t be every day.

I’m looking forward to the New Year and how things work out. We’re moving forward, not dwelling on the past which we can’t change.
I’m not into making resolutions, but would like to try and improve my blog content and variety. Hope you’ll stick around and if I’m doing it wrong, TELL ME!!!!Β  πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

Happy New Year everyone.
Keep well, be happy, and tell those close to your heart that you love them.


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
