A year has passed since I published my first post on this blog. When I sent that post out into cyberspace, I had no idea what to expect from the blogging experience. In fact, I worried a bit about whether I’d remain motivated enough to stick with it and/or find enough material to keep the site interesting. With that year behind me now, however, I can say unequivocally that I’m glad I took the leap. I derive a lot of satisfaction from researching and writing the posts, I have learned a LOT about living in Denmark and Aalborg in the process, and I have opened doors to opportunities I did not know existed beforehand – like being on a steering group formed to plan activities for the international community in Aalborg. And yet…
I still have a list a mile long of topics that I think could be of interest to readers. But it is a bit overwhelming to figure out how to tackle that list. So given that it’s my one year anniversary, I thought I would ask those of you to whom this blog matters: what do you like about this blog and what would you like to hear more about? I can see from my stats which topics are ‘hottest,’ and they include the post about the blue health insurance card for traveling in Europe, learning Danish in Aalborg, and the dual citizenship law (in that order). What else would be of use? Of interest?
To entice you to respond, I’m offering a little incentive: a 100 kr. gift card (good for two years) at Penny Lane, one of the most charming cafés in Aalborg, in my opinion. All who comment on this post by this Friday, 5 December 2014 at 17:00 will be automatically entered in a drawing to win the gift card. I will number each comment and use an online random number generator to pick the winner. So please take a minute to answer the following:
- What information have you found most useful/interesting on the blog?
- What topics would you like me to include in the future?
Don’t forget to include your first name and last initial so when I announce the winner you’ll know if it is you! And if you are not from Aalborg but would still like to comment, please feel free. Just include the fact so I don’t enter you in the drawing – the gift card is really only useful to someone who lives here. 🙂
