I would swear that Kuriositas had been going longer. If I couldn’t simply look up the date of the first post on the site and see it for myself – 13 March 2010 – I would say that I had been beavering away on it for at least five years – minimum. Perhaps that indicates the amount of work that goes in to it or more likely both the frustration and satisfaction (in equal measure, but never quite equal at the same time!)I gain from running a blog like Kuriositas.

There are so many people I could thank but I would end up sounding like Gwyneth Paltrow at the Academy Awards but I would like to point a finger in the direction of one person in particular. Thank you Dragos Murgociu not just for the design of the site but also and particularly for your ceaseless enthusiasm not only for Kuriositas but for the blogosphere in general.

So, as Kuriositas goes in to its third year I would like to wish you a happy and healthy 2013. What has made Kuriositas truly worthwhile is the huge amount of positive feedback I have received over the (almost) three years of its life. If you have been one of the many people to comment, email or call then thanks for the support and the advice. Similarly, if you are new to Kuriositas, please keep coming back (if only out of, erm, kuriosity!). I am hoping that in 2013 the website will continue to grow and to engage readers old and new.

After Kuriositas had been running a month or two a friend of mine said that it really should have been called sh*t that I like dot com (and don’t you know it, that domain name was available!). He was a little concerned that because it did not have a niche subject then it would fail to find a niche audience. Although it does occasionally perplex people (myself included) I am grateful that there are so many people out there who like an eclectic mix of subject matter and who enjoy the surprise of what comes next as much as I do.

So, here’s to the New Year. Thanks!
