Hello, 2009

Meaghan delightfully suggested I "come back, already!" so I'm here, ready to jump into blog-land for 2009. My summer break was lovely and altogether too short, consisting of a diversity of small happinesses including birthday celebrations, Christmas day, canoeing, visits from loved ones, unexpected gifts of kindness and encouragement, reading in the middle of the day, sleeping in till embarrassing hours, melting in the Queensland humidity, and growing inspired about the fresh beginning.

I'm glad my blog didn't dissolve in the gaping void of inactivity. Sitemeter informs me that numerous visitors kept popping in via a Google search for polyphyria. I couldn't help but wonder how; have I ever used such a word? Turns out I have, in the discussion that took place on vampirism and the Twilight books over here. Obviously, my memory ain't what it used to be.

With the shiny newness of a fresh beginning, I find myself wondering what my blog's purpose ought to be in 2009. I know I'm determined to share more pictures, and to write better and oftener. But a part of me craves the narrowing freedom of a specific goal or theme. Life and faith? Writing? Books? So far, I've explored a bit of each, occasionally mentioning current affairs (which I generally know nothing about), too.

So I require your input, oh smartest of blog writers and readers: does your blog have a specific goal or theme? And if you were my blogging headmaster, what theme would you assign me?

I look forward to exploring 2009 with you.


  1. I love your blog just the way it is!

    I don't really have a theme for mine, just what interests me (and maybe others)moment by moment.

    Back to your blog... If you shared more of yourself, your family, and, someone is yelling out in the background, "more photos" that would be great!!

    Happy New Year!

  2. Hi Danielle,

    I've been looking out for you for a while hoping you'd be back soon. I was gonig to leave a comment but decided to abstain when I saw Meaghan already had. Anyway all that to really say - IM GLAD YOU'RE BACK!!

    As to your blog, I love it as it is, but some Carey happenings wouldn't go amiss, as it's hard to keep up to date on what's happening in each other's lives!:( And blogging helps. A lot.

    Also books too - I love books, so anything you had to offer in that line would be greatly appreciated.

    Much love to you, I wish we could see you sometime soon - it's been way toooo long. Will have to work out something.

    Oh BTW, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!!

  3. Good to see you back Danielle! (and what a nice photo of you also!) I've really enjoyed reading your writings about your faith and life...and who doesn't like photos!:) Oh, and does writing on this add up in your writing challenge? :)

  4. Polyphyria brilliance!

    Amanda is a genius: More pictuuuuures [Lots of 'u's because I like pictures of You in particular].

    I love to read about your thoughts on life and world and book and pop-culture things and personal things too. I like your head, both inside and out.

  5. Yay! You came back *warm fuzzies* :)

    I will always love your blog, in whatever shape and style it comes! xo
