10th Anniversary

When I started this blog 10 years ago, I had no idea where it would take me. I had –and still have- things to share and things to say and I knew blogging was –and still is- the right media to address the world.

Blogging in English was a deliberate choice and to be frankly quite a challenge. My grammar and typing mistakes may hurt the eyes of native speakers, but I sincerely hope that the content you got may ease your pain.

It was not a smooth sailing. When a Turkish Court blocked the Blogspot, the original platform I was using, I had no idea whether I should continue or not and if yes how. The migration to WordPress, 8 years ago, was a big leap of faith for me but it worked fine. The Twitter account of this blog has been a good addition and an excellent platform for instant blogging.

Personally, the most satisfying moments were, when I was creating the news instead of relaying press releases or news articles prepared by somebody else.

Through this blog I was able to meet many wonderful people, must online, some in person and share ideas, information and thoughts. I am very grateful for this.

I would like to thank my family. Actually, I can’t thank them enough for every minute I spent on this blog is a minute less spent with them.

And finally, I would like to thank all my readers and followers. Without your continued feedback, interest and engagement this journey would not be this interesting.
