HAPPY 2ND BIRTHDAY VILLAGE VIEW POST!!



On November 22, Village View Post will be two years old!! 

It amazes me every time I think about how far this blog has come in such a short amount of time. What started off as encouragements from a very good friend to share my writings with others has become an entire community.   

Celebrating this birthday is also a milestone in my own life. As I struggle to write, it has been difficult to stick with a schedule and even more difficult to find time to write. This blog helps me to overcome some of my fear of writing and the difficulty I have in finishing writing projects.

This blog has grown from a few readers to over 4000 page views a month within the first year and a half of its existence. I have you, my reader, and my contributors to thank for that. You are the reason this blog has been so successful.
I’m reaching out to you, and asking that you share this blog with your friends. And, as always, thank you so much for reading; I could not have done it without you.

CONGRATULATIONS and a VERY HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOUR BLOG. I, for one can assure you that I find them most interesting and I share them with my friends in all parts of the world(USA,Belize,Australia,Mexico and U.K.) and they too are very grateful for all the information.

I also from time to time, send you articles that give you an idea of what the Belizeans in this area are doing. Please tell me if you want me to continue sending them to you.

If I were in California I would invite you to celebrate by going to a Belizean Restaurant and we would have " Rice and Beans with stew chicken . ripe plantain and Potato salad "

Once again congratulations and keep up the good work

Dear Linda,

First of all, thank you for all the information I get. It amazes me how much you find to write about your “village”. I congratulate you to your effort, keep on going….

In Austria the cold season has started. Soon the snow will come, the long winter days. I will be travelling to Egypt and Ethiopia from Dec 26 to Jan 29. In Ethiopia we will fly to Lalibela, then to Gondar to do the Semien Mountains NP, then south to the Omo Valley at the end of the trip.

My thoughts will be with you because I met you when you returned from Ethiopia.
I wish you and your family all the best.

Leo from Austria
