We’re back! Happy New Year to you all!

The-Canberran-2013

Well, what a wonderful feeling it is to be back behind the keyboard for another fun filled year of Canberra Festivities!  Finally, this week, Canberra feels to have emerged from its Christmas and New Year slumber.  The roads are busier, there’s a blockbuster on at the Gallery, and the Centenary of our fair city is only two months away.  With all that in mind we’ve been busy here at The Canberran, preening our feathers and preparing for what looks like a very big year.

Firstly, a ‘thank you’ is in order…

And that ‘thank you’ is dedicated to you, our dear readers.  2012 was an incredible year for The Canberran, and it couldn’t have been done without you all.  We have a lot of fun putting this blog together, but without your input our little website wouldn’t be half as successful as it so far has been.  We really want the thank those who take time to post comments – be they positive or negative – for keeping us on our toes and demanding a high standard from our stories.  To those who email us little bits and pieces we are also extremely grateful: you are our eyes in the field and honest critiques.  It all really helps. Also, we wish to extend kisses and hugs to our Twitter followers, who invariably join in conversations existing outside of this particular digital realm. These have been fun dialogues with often-hilarious contributions.

We really want the thank those who take time to post comments – be they positive or negative – for keeping us on our toes and demanding a high standard from our stories.

We’re looking forward to  really big 2013.  You may have noticed the first major change already – the layout of the blog.  We are continually striving to provide relevant and current information with the least distraction.  This format is the first step in re-engineering the back end of The Canberran, so we hope you find it as aesthetically pleasing as we do.  Over the course of 2013 we look forward to providing more functions to the blog (without too much impact on the layout), and certainly welcome any feedback you may have.

We’ve got a lot to tell you about this week.  There’s a fantastic exhibition at the Museum of Australian Design opening on Saturday, as well as work on a brand new bar in the city.  We’ll bring more details to you of all this and more over the course of the week, as well as the result of yesterday’s trip to (eek!) the Summernats.  Yep, it’s certainly all happening here at The Canberran!

Again, Happy New Year and all the best for 2013.  We hope you enjoy the ride as much as we do.

The Editor.
