One Year!

One year ago today, I created this blog!

I never imagined I’d get the response that I have. Turns out there are a lot more people looking for their Latvian roots than I thought!

I know the past couple of months have been relatively slow on here. Between going on my trip to Latvia, then moving to a new city and starting school (in what is apparently the busiest and most stressful semester of my program), my attentions have been divided to say the least.

But I’m starting to streamline things. Prioritize things. And one of my priorities is to give this blog – and all of my projects – the attention they need.

Most importantly of all, I need to give you, my readers, the attention you deserve. I know there have been some unanswered comments and unanswered emails. I will hopefully get to them all in the next couple of days. I appreciate your patience, and hopefully my new priorities and organization will mean that I get to responses faster.

Thanks for being along for the ride. It’s been an amazing year, I know I’ve learned a lot, and I hope you have too!

    Congratulations on a significant anniversary, Antra! You have created the best blog EVER for us Baltic descendants who are far removed from the ‘homeland.’ We are learning SO much from you. We understand that you have to attend to university priorities too. I’m going to celebrate you on Facebook :-)
