A personal thank you to all my wonderful followers…see you in 2013 for bigger and better blogging and sharing of our writing journeys.The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

600 people reached the top of Mt. Everest in 2012. This blog got about 2,900 views in 2012. If every person who reached the top of Mt. Everest viewed this blog, it would have taken 5 years to get that many views.

Blog of 2012…

Another year…another AGM…

September 16, 2012

This Saturday marked another year for my Writers Foundation and as I attended the AGM, I thought of our past year. Our foundation is very involved in its members and the local community and at times we are spread quite thin. However, the camaraderie at each event makes for a wonderful time for all those involved and brings us closer to each other. I usually volunteer for most of the events – not because I’m trying to be a ‘goodie too shoes’ but because they are so much fun.  It isn’t until the annual review at the AGM is read through do I realize actually how many events. There are the annual events like our Conference, Culture Days, Words in the Park and Arts Expo as well as author readings, meetings for our board and other organizations we are members of. Newer events like our Night Writers, which is mini workshops, have been successful as we endeavor to give our membership every opportunity to participate and share. Obviously not everyone can commit to so many events and that is absolutely fine – if they can attend for a few hours at one or two events that helps tremendously.

As we go into our next year with new board members, we are excited at our growth as a writer’s resource and community. We welcome local and virtual members and hope to expand our presence whether it is in our community or globally through the web site. www.wfscsherwoodpark.com
