Today is a very special day. Guess whose birthday it is? Village View Post is 1 year old! That's right, I did it! That means it IS possible, and that also means YOU can do it too. After setting aside writing projects for years, half-finishing things and never sticking with anything for too long, I have managed to write and maintain this blog for an entire year. A whole year!

Writing can be a huge task, but it's not an impossible one. If you truly want to write, you need to sit down and just write. Don't let anything stand in your way, just write every day! Throughout the last year I have received a lot of encouragement and beautiful comments and I thank you all.

For those of you who just started reading this blog, welcome! I am so happy that you have joined me from all over the world as we continue our journey to find ways to bring you updated and relevant information on Crooked Tree Village, Belize and beyond!!

As always, please feel free to share your thoughts, ideas, comments and post suggestions with me at:

Thank you all for reading; I appreciate having you all to share my BELIZE.

Lady Crawford,
You truly have been "unBelizeable" over the past year.

For the insightful, humorous, and arresting articles/comments that you have shared.

Your uniqueness and creativity shines through -as you are not afraid to tackle the "sticky" issues (both political and social affecting the village of Crooked Tree and the nation of Belize).

I look forward to many more interesting and exciting articles and events, congratulations. :-) Rev. R. Dyer

in HIS service,

Raymond Dyer

A big "Thank You" to all of my blogging friends and readers out there for all of the wonderful comments,and e-mails.

The blogging world definitely has some of the nicest, most supportive, and loving people. I have never met some of you, but you make me feel like we are one big family.

I will continue to push on to bring you the little, but important news and events about Crooked Tree Village, and Belize that you won't find in the main Belize media, one day at a time.

Again, I thank you, from the bottom of my heart.

Linda Crawford
