Happy New Year

I’m writing this one from the comfort of my IKEA bed sheets. So it’s the new year and I’m starting my “conquer the world” new years resolution. 2009 for thenublack was probably one of the highlights of the year (I was going to say my life but that may be a TAD melodramatic).

To say I’ve been inspired would be an understatement, from travelling to New York this year and connecting with other creatives, to sharing ideas for a meetup group with my sister really pushes home the purpose of the blog which at first was just something of an exercise. A friend of mine recently became a teacher and was gushing about how he showed his students the blog and they really liked it – I was really touched by that as I would have loved to of had a blog like this one when I was of schooling age.

So what’s in store for 2010?! I’m really going to try and write more in posts (I’m all for WYSIWYG but a little insight into my views won’t hurt). I had a chat with my older sister and we’re planning a meetup group/collective of bloggers and creatives so that’s in the pipeline, as well as more freebies for readers (a collection of mantras from featured nublackers, pin badges and stickers etc).

Last but not least I’d love your feedback on what works, what doesn’t work, if you’d like to contribute (I’m always on the lookout for people to put me onto cool stuff).

Thank you all so much for stopping by and commenting, a big thanks to all of those who contributed, all the blogs that have inspired me…..

May thenublack world domination plan COMMENCE muhahahaha,
