At least one more year

So, it is official... I am committed to writing this blog one more year. Last year I didn't blog very much, this year has been even more of a struggle. Somewhere in between I decided if I didn't manage to meet last year's quota of posts or do even better, then I would discontinue writing my blog.

It wasn't something I wanted to do, since somewhere this fall I celebrated my ten years of writing yumyumcafe. Yet, if a blog is not active, it doesn't make sense to keep it alive. So, I felt a little bit of relief today when I managed to exceed last year's quota of blog posts by one .

My new strategy is to share with you some of the creative stuff I do on the side.

Maybe I will even get around to sharing some of the projects I am doing with the immigrants and refugees who have come to Germany on mass in the last years. These activities are really where my heart and mind are these days.

To all a Happy New Year!


  1. Your work with immigrants and refugees sounds very exciting and would be interesting blog material indeed. I have not written much myself in the past year, needing inspiration too!

    Happy New Year to you!

  2. Marja-Leena, Happy New Year! Do hope you have a wonderful year filled with help and happiness.

    As far as breathing new life into your blog, it would be nice to read more from you. I am following the motto, "it's not about trying harder, but about changing the system!. This is why I am going to take some of my offline creative work and put it here.

    Thanks for sticking around!
