Happy New Year! 2018 to 2019

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:

  1. The blog has grown on all social media channels greater than I could of expected. So thank you šŸ™‚
  2. I started my MA in Preventive Conservation
  3. Got to meet Sir Barry Cunliffe
  4. 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?

  1. 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.
  2. Take the blog outdoors – more info to follow
  3. The new projects I am embarking on will also shape the blog in new ways.
  4. Do more vlogs, videos, let’s plays and to generally to expand the YouTube section of my blog.
  5. 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.
