I would just like to take the time to say Happy New Year! And a big thank you to all of you for continuing to follow the blog!
2018 has been a bit of a mixed bag, but I want to focus on some of the postivies:
- The blog has grown on all social media channels greater than I could of expected. So thank you 🙂
- I started my MA in Preventive Conservation
- Got to meet Sir Barry Cunliffe
- Visited some fantastic places!
Towards the end of 2018 I made the decision to leave my current job in order to pursue some projects of my own, more information to follow soon. This decision was tricky, and risky, but I think ultimately for the best for me. It will also allow me to focus on my studies, and hopefully Coffee Break Archaeology, to make it what I originally intended it for.
So what are my plans for 2019?
- To continue to grow the blog, and make more regular, original content. To put the blog back on track to its original purpose – short, informative, entertaining articles on archaeology. Plus the other stuff I want to do.
- Take the blog outdoors – more info to follow
- The new projects I am embarking on will also shape the blog in new ways.
- Do more vlogs, videos, let’s plays and to generally to expand the YouTube section of my blog.
- Improve the website design and layout etc…
In order that achieve these in the next few weeks I am going to tidy up some of the loose ends from last year – such as my Prehistory of the Winter Festivals articles, book and games reviews that I started etc…
I also want to reach out the community more, get more interactive. Would really appreciate feedback and your suggestions for content.
2019 is going to be a busy, difficult, but also a good year. So, I wish you all the best for 2019.
