Overall, I’m pretty pleased with how the blog has come along this year and I was genuinely surprised at how many visits I’ve had. I’m dead keen to up the ante in 2011 and deliver more of the same!

I’d welcome any tips on how I can keep the content coming – I find the hardest thing is to keep up to my blog when I’m so busy.

Here’s to a blogtastic 2011!
