If we were having coffee – 12 September 2015

If we were having coffee, then I would greet you with a big smile.
Come in! Sit! I am so excited to have you here today!

But before I tell you why I am jumping up and down, how are you? What have you been up to since last time you joined me for a drink. Sorry, still no coffee here (but that does not mean that you have to leave now). What about a nice hot chocolate? I’ll even add some vanilla.

After I have asked you a ton of questions, you’d probably want to know what I have been up to this week, an of course what the big news is.

So, this week I went back to work, and I really enjoyed it. I went to the new park not far from here, the Martin Luther King Parc, took a lot of pictures, that way I can decorate my future article about it.
On Thursday afternoon, little one started to sneeze, and the situation deteriorated quickly in a night marked by a big fever. But nothing could wipe the smile of her face.
I have managed to blog quite a bit this week, but none of my other writing projects have advanced in a long time now. Yesterday I posted a list of some of my favourite blogs.

And now to the news, my blog is celebrating it’s 6 month anniversary!!! The first post went up on the 12th of March 2015! Since then so many things have happened, I now have almost 200 followers, and almost 100 posts (this is number 97). A few weeks ago, an author, who I could find no where on the internet, wrote me an email, thanking me for the review I had posted here.  In order to celebrate these 0.5 years of my blog, and because I have been asked where I can be found… I have decided to set up a twitter account. You can now find me as @SolveigJW
When my blog started out, I did not have a lot of followers, and there are some posts that I would love to share with you. Such as this one about an artist we met on a walk.

In order to make navigation easier, now that I am no longer a novice, I am trying to reorganise my menu/categories/tags, meaning that things might be a bit messy and harder to find over the next few days. I also want to try to establish something that resembles a schedule, on Mondays there will be a photo with its story, on Tuesday I’ll try to join #BlogBattle, on Fridays it’s book review day, on Saturdays it’s Weekend Coffee Share. I’d love to do a regular (maybe monthly feature) of having authors for interviews, I really enjoy doing interviews and have not done any in ages.

If all of this wasn’t enough, I have another reason to celebrate. On Monday I will be doing my first ever guest post. Ula is kindly having me on her blog Confessions of a Broccoli Addict as part of her Monday Inspirations Series. I am so exited!

Now it’s time for you to leave, and head over to Diana’s Blog Part-Time Monster, check out the Coffee Share Linky, join in with your own post and read those of the others. As it is raining I hope you have equipped yourself with an umbrella, if not, I will lend you one. And if you were wondering, the badge on top of the post, well it is kindly provided by Part-Time Monster.

Have a great weekend! Thanks for joining me for coffee (hot chocolate?), Solveig

  3. I’m glad you had such a positive week! Hope your little one is all better. The new ideas for your blog sound great. I’ve been thinking I need to get myself on a schedule too. It makes it so much easier to organize the old brain that way.😉

    1. She’s all fine now, even skipped today’s nap…
      I have been sort of sticking to a schedule, but now I am trying harder by announcing it 🙂


  4. First of all congrats on your .5 Anniversary – your blog looks awesome! I love hot chocolate by the way almost as much as coffee, but never had one with vanilla, interesting. I followed you on Twitter!
    Have a great day!

    1. Thank you for the congratulations and the follow (followed back).
      It still needs a bit of organising, so that no one gets lost (or should I say that posts can be found and read…)
      Vanilla added to hot chocolate is just heavenly! It has to be real vanilla though.
      Have a great week!


  5. Happy 6 months! This means I’ve been reading your blog since almost the beginning. You’ve really accomplished a great deal in just 6 months. You have lots to be proud of. I am so glad to have you for Monday. Thanks for the two mentions in a row. And welcome on Twitter. It’s a lovely space with some wonderful people.

    1. Thank you!! Yes, almost since the beginning, thanks to the A to Z Challenge 🙂
      Your words are so kind! Oh your blog is great and does deserve a few mentions here and there.
      The welcome on twitter has been so warm.

  6. Congratulations on your 0.5 anniversary. Exciting times, sorry to hear your little one has been poorly, high temperatures in little ones are never fun. I like the idea of your weekly schedule and look forward to connecting with you more on Twitter.

    1. She is better now. She’s rather strong and sick for her means 24 to 48 hours at the most… It wasn’t the best night I had, that’s for sure.
      I hope that I can stick to my schedule, well it’s been sort of around for a while now…

  7. Happy 6 month blogiversary!

    I feel you on the re-organizing. Best to do it now. When I re-vamped the blog this summer, I had a few hundred posts to re-categorize, and it was a right pain.

    And welcome to Twitter. 🙂


    1. Thank you!
      I want my blog to be easy to navigate, it being very wide spread in topics I really have to figure out good categories that work. I can imagine, I just have a little less than 100 and it already is a pain.
      Thank you, for the warm welcome you gave me on twitter 🙂

      1. You’re welcome!

        And yes—I definitely should’ve put more thought into categories when I started, but I didn’t really have a clear notion of what I was going to be writing about in the long-term then.
