Hello readers, it’s been an interesting year for us at Musings of an Analytical Mind and like all interesting events, the year 2014 is gradually coming to an end. I’m sure that you have had an interesting time reading the various posts that we shared with you this year. This is to say Thank You to everyone who has subscribed, read, commented, shared and contributed one way or another to a successful 2014.
For those who may be interested, I thought I should share the two major highlights for the year, which were:
- The introduction of Featured Posts which allows for submissions to be published on the blog.
- Addition of Contributing Writers to the team. You can meet them here.
To allow everyone a concentrate on the goodies of the season, the blog will be going on a Christmas Break today to resume on January 7, 2015. However, unlike the writers of this blog, the email will not be going on break! So if you have posts you’d like to feature, you can still send them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
By the way of a Christmas present, I’ve compiled a list of the Top 10 Musings for the year at the end of this post for your holiday viewing pleasure. And for those who are big on New Year Resolutions, you should read this and this.
Wishing you a Happy Christmas and a Merry New Year
