I would appreciate it if you could leave a comment at the end of my essay post. It would help me to be in the running for one of the top blogs in Cyprus for 2013.
I know it’s a shameless plug for The Seoul of Cyprus, but this was where my love for blogging began. Yes, there have been ups and downs to blogging, as I am quickly learning on the job everyday. It’s been a slow start with Hometown Betty, but I hope to continue my love for learning about other cultures, people, and life different than my own.
From my hometown to yours,
