Kansas City – Strange as it may sound, today marks the 1st anniversary of my launching of the blog that has since grown into my website, Journeys to and From Home, or as it is typed https://sthosdkane.com/ . I have to say that I am quite proud of how this site has grown over the past year, and certainly did not imagine that it would still be around one year after it’s inception.
One year ago, I launched this blog, with the intent of recording my experiences as an undergraduate studying at the University of Westminster in London. Like many of my friends who also started blogs for the same purpose, I could very well have cut this one off at that point. But, upon thinking about it some more, I figured that there would be a good use for the blog in the future, that it could be a good replacement for my column Kansas City Catholic Examiner, which was largely filled with my own opinions on Catholic theology and social life. As a matter of fact, I still am officially listed as being the writer of that column, so perhaps it will have a comeback…
Journeys to and From Home has greatly expanded my audience, and the reach of my work. To date this website has been viewed by readers in 40 countries around the world, with fairly high concentrations in North America, Europe, Brazil, and Australia and New Zealand. This has especially come with my decision to begin writing regularly on the Formula 1 World Championship with the beginning of the 2014 season.
With the first year behind, it is time to start looking into the second year, into what will come next. I plan on continuing to write on Formula 1, along with writing the odd arts review.
Anyhow, thanks to all of you for subscribing, and reading my work over the past year! May many more years lie in the future.
