You make me shine!

Bassa’s Blog is one year old today!

One year ago I placed a tentative paw on the keyboard to begin recording my daily adventures with tall person as we explore our neighborhood in Tbilisi in the Republic of Georgia.

We have seen and shared so many amazing things that we have discovered on our walks. Tall person has shown me that everything is interesting if you pause to look.

I hope that everyone who has visited Bassa’s Blog has enjoyed the pictures and little stories.

Along the way, we have have made so many friends and have shared in their daily lives through their amazing blogs. We are honored to be blogging alongside so many talented blogging friends.

To commemorate 52 weeks of blogging we have designed a blogging award to acknowledge 52 blogs that we think are stars of the blogging world.
