2014 in review

Happy Cedar

There’s beauty all around us!

Thanks, everyone, for being with me for my first year (first quarter, actually) of Sims blogging. It’s been so much fun to share my legacy family and my other Sims games and stories with you!

I’m looking forward to more fun in 2015, when Starwing’s SimsWriters.com will launch a new community for SimsLit readers and writers (hope you join us there). In addition, in the next month or so, the Goofy Love Legacy will be featured as the Story of the Month on the Sims web site. Thanks to everyone who voted in the poll on the Sims Forums–no matter which story you voted for, you showed EA your support of Sims storytellers, and that’s what counts! I have lots of stories planned for the coming year, including an introspective and reflective cross-over spin-off featuring some of the Sims you know and love from Bilmonaghan’s “Le Dynastie d’Angers.” And, of course, we’ll see if we can get to Gen 10 of the Goofy Love Legacy and finish up some of the other challenges that are currently underway.

I wish that you all have a year of deep joy, peace, balance, health, and love. The Sims community of players, readers, writers, and artists that has developed since Sims 4 launched in September 2014 shows what happens when people connect through something they love: inspiration blossoms! Thanks for being a part of this. I love to read your comments; those of you who write stories, I love to read your stories; and to all of you who read this blog, I absolutely love and feel grateful that you read my words! Thank you!

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 21,000 times in 2014. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 8 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.
