Top five reasons to have a New Year's Day blog post:
1. These are the best places that I visited this year
2. These are the best books and films of the past year
3. These are my resolutions and predictions for the new year
4. These were my most commented posts of last year
5. I should post every day.
Actually that wasn't meant to be critical, those are all perfectly good reasons. I'd have done one too, but I've been away. Normal service to resume shortly.
