When I wrote my first blog post, I wondered if anyone would read it. How would they even find it? Well, somehow they did. YOU did. Many thanks for stopping by my blog and supporting me with your many words of encouragement.
I’ve been fortunate over the years to have been recognized for my blogs and videos by some substantial and recognizable parties. The combination of feedback from all of you and these organizations has kept my fire alive (even during the down times), to keep moving forward with my work.
Again, thank you for all the support and much appreciated recognition of my work. I look forward to providing more informative and entertaining material about my life teaching English abroad in the future.
