While we're still in the spirit of the new year, I'd like to invite you all to fill in a readers survey for Alive as Always. This will also be a chance for you to cash in your vote from this post, if you may be reminded. It would be of great help to me to hear your thoughts—as each and every one of yours is valuable to me—and I promise it won't take a good chunk of your time. I would also like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has come to visit this past year and everyone who has stuck around even from before then. This blog would never be the same without you guys! Please let me know if there is any trouble with it and thank you for your time!
