. . . I have been trying out some new gadgets and different types of posts on my blog. For instance, there is a new “Goodreads” widget on the right side of the blog. That connects you, my readers, with books I have read. If you click on it, you will see what I am currently reading and what’s in my lineup too. Perhaps you will join me?! There are also a couple other new widgets that link you to fabulous websites that you might like to peruse.
I have also been working with a group of bloggers (none of whom I have actually met.) We are pushing through a book that helps us to build better blogs. I have added these fellow bloggers to my bloglist. You should check them out! There are some pretty good reads in there.
This month, I added more recipes – all desserts. But you should keep checking back as I have many savory international recipes lined up such as: Crepes with Mushrooms, Smoked Turkey & Swiss; Almost Turkish Beef with Brussel Sprouts; and Bavarian Fingernudeln – a finger-shaped potato dumpling. I also recently added a list of Ankara restaurants in the Culinary Corner that were suggested by expats here.
Also, this week I did an interview with a local author, Jack Scott. I hope you read it, liked it, and will buy the book! Another author will be focused next month on the tour guide he wrote about his village.
Tomorrow, I plan to host a guest writer. He has written an article for me about why people come to Turkey. If this goes well, there will be more guests in the future.
Finally, I plan to take some more “adventurous” trips with my husband this Spring and Summer. Does paragliding sound fun to you? We will not only blog those adventures, but plan to add some wild videos!
All I ask of you, my kind readers, is to let me know what you like and what you don’t like. Afterall, this blog is as much for you as it is for me. And please don’t worry, my blog may have new additions, but it will not lose my constant rantings and ravings!
