Two Today

Where on earth has the time gone?  It seems like only yesterday I was writing a post celebrating  my blog's 1st birthday, and now suddenly New Girl in Toon is 2 years old!

I'm not going to waffle on too much but I just wanted to take a bit of time to reflect on all of the great things I've achieved in the last year.

New Girl in Toon has come such a long way in the last 12 months and I'm so proud of where I find myself today.  My page views have doubled and last year I was shortlisted for a Blog North Award, which was such a honour.



This blog may now have a nice fancy new look, have better quality images and its own domain name but I hope you agree with me when I say its heart is still very much the same as it always was - promoting all of the great things that the North East has to offer.

I've been so lucky to work with some amazing North East based businesses this year and am very thankful for the great relationships I've built with some of my favourite restaurants, bars and hotels in the area.

One of the things I will never take for granted is the wonderful friends that I have made through this blog.  The North East has the most fantastic blogging community and I'm so happy to have met so many talented, fun and lovely people.



Before this all starts getting a little too cheesy and soppy, I give you all permission to buy yourself cake today in celebration!

Here's to another year guys!
