I’m not sure if this is a year end post or a new year post. . . . but it would say the same thing either way, I think! I set some blog goals last year – and didn’t meet them all. But that’s okay because what happened instead was way better. Wheels gifted me with the blog framework and theme you see today; Bytes gifted me the set up and I was just starting to feel like I knew my way around a bit. Then came a new computer with all sorts of improvements, but I realllly like it for what it doesn’t have – wires! Everything is built into one unit with a big touch screen. Looooove it! Took a lot of time to switch files over and master the learning curve of new programs (still working on both of them!). Then a new desk – which meant the whole office got a makeover – and everything lives in new places and order. All that reorganization and learning (and a major unexpected vacation!) kept the writing time short! But things will work better from now on! A Pinch of Joy also had a visit from the reorganization fairy (aka Charlene!) over the past couple of weeks. You’ll find most indices at the top now actually have links and pictures from early posts have been enlarged and titled. And other background things that will help you find your way around here easier! There will be some other changes rolled out over the year – just picking up the blog goals from last year and moving on! And as we toast the new year – here’s a look at

A huge thank you for your part in making A Pinch of Joy such a pleasure to produce. I appreciate each and every reader and treasure all your comments, “likes”, pins and other ways we connect. Every time I sit down to write I feel a connection to each one — those friends I know in real life and friends I have only met through these words and those who silently come and go every day. You are so special and I wish you much joy in 2013!
