Happy New Year! Reflecting on MOAMG’s first year of blogging
2012 has been an amazing year for London – the Jubilee, the Olympics and Paralympics, the opening of The Shard… While 2013 doesn’t have quite the same once-in-a-lifetime events scheduled, who knows what will happen!
Memoirs Of A Metro Girl was ‘born’ in May 2012. After thinking about starting a blog on and off for years, I finally took the plunge in the weeks leading up to the Queen’s Jubilee as there was so much buzz in the capital. I am so proud to be a Londoner and have always enjoyed sharing my knowledge of the capital with visiting friends and family from abroad.
As the blog grew in visitors, I was constantly seeking out new things to write about. The good thing about having a blog is it spurs you to make the most of London, instead of perhaps being lazy and think you’ll do it another day (I have been guilty of that!). As a Londoner, you can often take the city’s sights for granted because they’ll always be there.
So in eight months of blogging, I’ve posted on a range of subjects, including history, architecture, events, festivals and travel which has attracted very different visitors. In 2013, I hope to continue the way I go on, covering events and finding parts of secret London and continuing to grow the blog’s audience.
I would like to thank all the readers and Twitter/Facebook followers for their continued support of the blog and also ask to help spread the word to your friends and family if you like what you read.
