2012 Year In Blogging
Posted on December 31, 2012
Things are certainly different in 2012 than 2011. Stats wise or lakorn wise, 2011 has a significant leverage. One can say it won hands down. Along with the myriad of lakorns to blog about in 2011, there were personal circumstances that came into play, which help in well, overall lakorn blogging. It’s best to explore those circumstances for a better understanding of 2012’s small successes.
It’s quite sobering to recall that a year ago, I was living in Jakarta, Indonesia. My career, friends and life were put on pause for my sojourn, long sabbatical in SE Asia. I was able to awaken my personal hobby of blogging and finally, dedicate almost a fulltime focus on lakorns again. They were good times that opened my world up to culture, new friends and a renewed appreciation for lakorns.
Then I returned back to my career, friends and life in the beautiful Pacific Northwest a year later, January of 2012. I was glad to be back, but nostalgic for the life I lived- a lively and lonely time that seemingly interlink, creating a full experience of an expat. But I knew coming back to the U.S. that things are going to be different. I won’t have the time I had in blogging ridiculously daily as I had while living abroad, so how was I going to maintain this labor of love? How was I going to keep readers interested as well as myself invested enough to continue blogging, happily?
It is definitely doable. Life may get in the way, but I feel that interjecting a bit of personal with the shared interest of lakorn can help one feel that one doesn’t always have to write about lakorns. Although, keeping in the back of one’s mind that most readers tune into a blog to help them in certain ways, whether that is for recaps of a drama that they don’t understand, get a review on a drama they are skeptical about or thinking about watching, read first impressions from someone they may trust or simply to find an avenue where they can share their insights/thoughts and spasms with another fellow lakorn enthusiast.
And with that in mind, I am able to hone in my focus for this blog.
Therefore to me, 2012 is a learning curve, a small personal success.
And I have you to thank for that. So without further ado, I’d like to share with you my stats for 2012. Special thanks for those you see listed below and most importantly, to those new individuals, new followers that has found lovefia’s blog to be follow-worthy, to those recurring readers and their continued support, and even the silent ones.
Cheers to a new year- cheers to new friends- and cheers to new lakorns that hopefully, will blow our minds.

Happy to contribute reading on Maya Tawan, Plerng Toranong, What’s up 2012 and Where did I come from lol.
Happy New Year P’Fia! Wish you all the best for the upcoming projects!
This new year gonna be a hectic one for me. I checked my timetable and lecturers, and I felt extremely bad.
Since this 2013 gonna be an important one for my study and career, I’ll stop watching lakorns and reading gossips for a while too.
Hopefully everything goes well and I can come back to chit chat with you.
Pray for my luck on my study na.
Choke dee na ka N’Asy (good luck.) and P’Fia will send blessings for good health, excellent grades and much success in everything that you do. Thank you for your continued support and hope to see you surface every now and then 🙂 Joop Joop! (in Sangkla’s imitation)
lol, did I comment that much? But it has been another enjoyable year of talking about lakorns and spazzing over daras with you. It’s now officially 2013 in Singapore so happy new year!! and here’s to an even better year ahead for both RL and drama watching. 🙂
Happy New Year dearie (suk san wan pee mai na ka Nong J!) I wish you a wonderful year with love, life, work and health. It is always a pleasure spazzing with you. I miss SE Asia so much, wishing I could clink a champagne glass in celebration of the new year with you. Cheers to drama watching and to friends!
Thanks so much Fia for your time and energy – a real labour of love to produce such a wonderful blog that links the lakorn fans to share their interest. May your 2013 be blessed with hope, peace, joy and love – now and always.
Aww thanks, Nataya. Likewise, I hope you have a lovely, healthy and prosperous 2013. I’m glad you stumbled over my blog! Whatever it is that propelled you to continue coming back, I appreciate it 🙂 Here’s to a new year of lakorn spazzing! Cheers.
