I am so overwhelmed by the amount of entries for the end of year giveaway! What blew me away the most though was the amount of constructive and positive feedback that you guys were willing to share with me, and for that I am so grateful. I've learnt a lot about what you enjoy about this blog, and for 2012 I will try my very best to bring some fresh and exciting new content to iheartstance!
Firstly I'd like to share on here a quick overview of the feedback I've received. In 2012 you would like to see more...
Photos of the Miatasaurus and some more in depth detail on my build - I hope you enjoyed my post from earlier in the week about this!
MX-5 and Miata related content
Coverage of New Zealand events and meets, and to provide more of an insight into New Zealand car culture
Perhaps some in depth features on kiwi builds and their owners
You also said you'd like to see more girl stance and features on female car enthusiasts
Lastly, a lot of people said they'd like to see me return to Japan to embark on more car-related adventures there. I have to tell you guys... there is absolutely NOTHING more I would like to do than this! Every night before I go to sleep, I close my eyes and imagine being back there... wandering the streets of Osaka drinking Asahi, watching in awe as cars zoom around the amazing Tsukuba circuit, gliding my hand across the riveted fender of Stella Artois at the RWB workshop...
But next year is going to be a big year of saving for me, and as well as that I'd like to focus on my car and improving my own skills behind the wheel. In the distant future however, a trip to America is on the cards and I have big dreams of travelling around California and meeting all of the incredible people that have inspired me from the scene there.
But that's enough about me! Thank-you to everyone that has entered the giveaway competition and for inspiring me with your thoughtful ideas and kind words. There can only be one winner though, and that person is...
