Weekly Photo Challenge: Thankful

Picture of Thank you Jar, Thank you, Merci, Abstract Photo

There is so much to be thankful in this life but I wanted this post to be about you, the reader. From the second that I took this image (5 months ago), I’ve had this post in mind and I was waiting for the right opportunity that finally presented itself 🙂 I just wanted to say thank you for following my posts for the past year or so, it really has been an amazing experience for me and I hope you have enjoyed my almost daily posts. With that being said, all good things must come to an end… I’ve decided to move on to a self-hosted blog ( that I will transfer all this content to. I’m not sure if my contacts got transfered over there as there is no mention of it but I hope that you’ll come and follow me. I’m still working on a few things and hope to make the switch over the weekend, you’ll definitely know.

Regardless if you decide to follow me or not on my new website… this is the right time for me to say THANK YOU / MERCI 🙂 Its been an absolute blast.

    • I’m a nerd at heart… I love to control things… I wanted to have complete control over all my website and I decided to take the plunge! To be honest, I thought it would be easier… it does require patience & quite a bit of learning so I wouldn’t recommend that option to anyone who isn’t technical!

      That would make a good blog post in 6 months from now though 🙂

    • I’m the kind of person that would build a house in 3 years even if I could pay someone to do it for me in 1 month… Life is about growing and learning for me 🙂 Also, I really want to take over all aspects of the website, I want to be able to completely control it.

  6. It’s been such a pleasure to meet you, and to get to know you a little bit. I’ll try and follow you on your new blog, as I’ll certainly miss you here, but at this point in time, I don’t even get around to wordpress… Good luck with your new site, I hope you enjoy it! 🙂
