3rd Quarter Summary

Nine months ago, if I’d got ‘knocked up’, we’d be saying “It’s a girl/boy!”

Instead, I’m delighted to celebrate “It’s a blog!” as “Every Day Adventures in Asia (Mostly)” reaches its 3rd quarter – yipee!

I gotta admit though, this quarter didn’t exactly turn out as planned…

    I expected to be in Jakarta and couldn’t wait to explore more of that amazing city and other parts of Indonesia! While I was busy with the Indonesian project til 2nd week December, most work was done remotely in Mumbai. With a shift in business model and priorities, there won’t be future trips for this client… sigh… however ‘fingers crossed’ more projects will come that involve travel!

  • My partner had a film shoot planned in Budapest in December. Seemed a great excuse to spend some time in Europe – I had dreams of joining for a bit, pop over to Prague to see a dear friend, amble on to Amsterdam for another friend’s new nightclub opening. Alas, the film hit a snag and…. again sigh… no news on if/when either the film shoot will happen or where.
  • With these developments, we decided to stay put, revelling in the delights and distractions Mumbai always has on offer – not such a bad thing. 🙂

As for the blog, this quarter hit some cool milestones:

    A new single day top views ‘high’ on 26 Dec when I posted Merry Christmas Mercedes?! I still can’t believe my partner got a Benz for Xmas??

  • This is the 100th post – not bad when I originally set a goal of 1 post a week!!
  • Folks from 80 countries stopped by with views inching towards the 10,000 mark – wowie!
  • Received the Dragon’s Loyalty Award where I could say “THANK YOU” to some fabulous folks who keep coming back and regularly comment

I experimented with my 1st poll with some terrific feedback! What was amusing is someone added “Love it all!” to the poll for “And sorry, I just don’t care for posts about…”

2013 Gimme more posts about.... results

Rather than feature only the top 5 posts for the quarter, here are the ‘winners’ for each category:

With 2014 peaking around the corner, I wonder what surprises and  new every day adventures are in store?

    Congrats on your staying power and unabated enthusiasm! I notice that most people give up after about three months.
    Long live blog faffery.

    Congrats! I am so glad you are still going strong as I am struggling to keep myself in line with so much going on. I enjoy each post!

    • Thank you!!! Am enjoying and have the time / flexibility to have fun with it. Am perfectly aware that another project will play havoc with frequency and have always been impressed with the regularity and quality of your posts. Hope all going great back ‘home’. 🙂
