Thank You to all our readers

When we began our blog earlier this year we knew absolutely nothing about having a website or setting up a blog. Everything we have managed has been the results of hours of research and trial and error from our laptop in the kitchen. If  we could have back the hours we have spent just trying to get the header right, or how to get photos in the right place we would extend our lives considerably!

When we finally felt we had the site just about how we wanted it, we then took about two weeks to pluck up the courage to press the 'publish' button for the blog to go live. We wanted people to read it, but at the same time found it a bit embarrassing too, because we were such novices. Since then we have had some really nice comments from people who read the blog and I can't tell you how much incentive that gives us to continue to write about our life in Turkey.

We are therefore, very proud that our blog has been accepted by the Expats Blog who are compiling a list of what they consider to be the best expat blogs, and further that having reviewed our blog they believe it is worthy of nomination for the Expat Blog Awards 2012.

Obviously we don't expect to receive an award this time around but are delighted that we are at least included. Part of the judging takes into account any readers comments on our listing, so if any of our regular readers feel inclined to write something about our blog this is the link to our entry.

We would like to express our gratitude for those of you who take the time to read our blog regularly, without you all and your encouragement we would have given up long ago - so thank you all so very much.
