[Note: In June, I put up a post supposedly summarizing the twelfth year of this blog. Problem was, though, that I wasn’t really ready to do it, yet my self-set deadline pushed me onward. I was not happy with the result, but I did nothing through the rest of June, nor did I think about it again when the time came to create a post for July.
Now, however, I am ready. I hope to put up a more detailed post of what I tried to achieve between July 2021 and June 2022.
Any comments, pro- or con-, will be welcomed by yours truly.

New Posts, Year Twelve, 2021-2022:
[Note: “Retired But Not Shy” has just finished its twelfth year. When I began back in June 2010, I was worried that I would not be able to provide fresh material for the blog. But, boy, did I ever surprised myself: by now, I’ve put up more than two hundred posts! Still, I wondered how many of those posts loyal visitors had read. So, this year, to help readers of “Retired But Not Shy” along, I created “Retro-posts.” For these, I dived into the blog’s archives and retrieved several early posts that I hoped would inform current readers of what I had wanted to achieve “back in the day” (i.e., when I launched the blog but had scarcely a clue as to what that entailed). I’m not sure how helpful this strategy was, but I shall probably continue “Retro-posts” at least through year thirteen.]
