I learnt about “12 from ’12” blog challenge the day Adam Simpson posted it in his blog. Since my blog actually started from a response to Adam’s “11 from ’11” I couldn’t really miss this one.
I don’t feel like promoting myself for several reasons, so I decided to do a variation of the challenge in such a way that I benefit from this writing and will be able to use it in the coming year. I am being selfish and practical here.=)
This post is a tribute to those blogs which I’ve either discovered this year or known about all the way from 2011 but never gave them the attention they deserve (for I still haven’t found the best way for myself to organize my blog reading).
So I’m planning to take these 12 blogs with me into 2013 (together with dozens of others I don’t mention here – and my own humble blog, probably, too))
Checking my Reviews-to-Books-I-Read notebook I’ve noticed that I’ve read fewer fiction books this year than in any previous ones. I have shifted my focus a bit and have been reading a great deal of ELT-related literature and writing. I can’t really decide if it’s a good sign or if it’s for the worse, but I enjoy what I’m reading and that’s all that matters. Thus, thank you, writers, bloggers, ELT authors.. journalists, too=)) I hope that one day (some day) there will be a healthy balance to what I read and write myself. #keepdreaming
My 2012 has been awesome, special, different and it has changed me in many ways. Whether you wish CHANGE or STABILITY for yourself in 2013 – may your dreams come true)
P.S. I am really worried about “13 from ’13” blog challenge…14 from ’14…etc
