Today is National Letter Writing Day. The intent is to encourage handwritten letters, preferably mailed, and I am doing that (three to family members and one to a dear friend in another state), but it also seemed like a good time to share a few thoughts with all of you. So here goes:
Dear Blogging Community,
After blogging for just over a year, I am still amazed at the wonderful, supportive, talented, and interesting people that I never knew were out there. Starting this blog has not only been a great creative outlet for me, but has exposed me to so many new ideas and caring individuals.
Thank you for the recipes, the reviews, the recommendations, and the life hacks. Thank you for the poetry, stories, and reflections. Thank you for the fun facts and amazing pictures. Reading your posts is a daily joy.
Thank you for reading my posts, and for the likes and comments. Thank you for letting me know when a suggestion, tip, or recommendation has resonated with you. Thank you for the support and concern when I’ve been sick, stressed, or dealing with loss and disappointment. Thank you for laughing at my stories and taking my snark in the intended spirit.
You are all amazing people, and I’m so glad to be part of your community.
Why are you glad to be a blogger/reader?
