Dear Loyal Readers of the Live Rural NL Blog –
Since June 2010 I have scribed more than 250 posts on this blog with more than 50,000 views to the site. In just one day this July from the Iceberg article in Goose Cove 2,971 views were made with more than 10,000 views in July 2011 alone. Many of you have taken the journey with me, reading about all things rural on the Great Northern Peninsula, some since the beginning and others more recently. I thank you all for sharing with me your interest in the part of the world I continue to live each and every day.
Since August I have struggled to write and actively post as I became involved in the political arena. I was elected as a Member of the House of Assembly in the District of the Straits-White Bay North in the Province of Newfoundland & Labrador on October 11, 2011. I remain quite busy with District work as the Government has opted to close the House of Assembly until March 5, 2011. Despite my new position as a Member of the House I am happy to report my plans to continue to scribe more articles on the Live Rural NL blog. It is new world – a new start!
On June 20th, 2010 I wrote:
I am back to the hometown and able to make valuable contributions in my current role as I strive to build Stronger Communities and accelerate the process of advancing the social & community enterprise. I have changed many times as a person as I progress through my twenties, but I realize that with the right attitude and efforts we can accomplish the unthinkable. Today my friends, I just want to share with you what it means to me to continue to Live Rural NL.
This paragraph remains unchanged. As we progress through life, we have new viewpoints, stories and thoughts to share. I am looking forward to sharing with you all once again some of my most recent encounters.
