To Celebrate My Decade of Blogging

My decade of blogs
I have been thinking about what to do to celebrate 10 years of blogging coming up on the 8th of December 2013.
After over 2,000 blogs in productive and slightly unproductive years, I have a compendium of work covering issues of life, work, rights, sexuality, illness, politics, religion and levity.
There is probably much else I have written about that I cannot put into a specific pigeonhole, but I am proud of what has gone into over a million words of thoughts, views, opinions and commentary.
Celebrate with me
Now, I wonder if I can interest and invite readers of my blog to contribute a write-up to my blog covering any of the topics that I have written about from their own perspectives, which might also include any other topics or views about the principal.
I do not know how this would do for persuasion, but I will particularly be interested in receiving input for those who are yet to start their own blogs.
Through the month of December, I will put up the blogs and I hope we can do this with the finesse of a seamstress making a good skirt – short enough to keep the interest, whilst long enough to cover the detail.
Please let me know if you are interested into celebrating my decade of blogging, post a comment, a tweet at @forakin or an email to

Dear Akin,

Congratulations on a decade of blogging. I'd like to know that I've followed your blogs trough the years since we've met. Your vision on life has contributed to my understanding, and undoubtedly to that of others. I encourage you to continue to share your thoughts. May God be with you, I wish you the best. Kind regards,

Dear Bas,

Thank you very much for your message. I am quite honoured to hear you read my blogs, it has been my little crude therapy couch for years.

I also wish you and your family the very best, maybe I'll visit the Netherlands soon again.

With the kindest regards,
