Today marks the 2nd anniversary of my blog! Wow! That time sure went by quickly! I remember sitting at my desk, straining my brain to come up with something to write about and being so nervous about what readers would think, or if there even would be any readers! I was new to social networking and knew absolutely nothing about blogging. I had no idea what direction I wanted to take this online journal in. What I really didn't know was that it would take me in so many different directions!
During the days, weeks, months and now years that passed, I discovered that blogging wasn't just about sitting alone in my office sharing my day; there was a whole world of fellow bloggers out there! I knew they existed, but I had no idea how connected the blogging community is. I have "met" so many kind, compassionate, talented, inspirational, loving, supportive, generous (the list could go on and on) just downright friendly people! The more experienced ones are so willing to assist a newbie like me who was struggling to figure out all the gadgets and gizmos of building a blog. Not only were (and still are) they helpful, they're like ambassadors, welcoming fellow bloggers and encouraging every one's efforts. It's taken me most of my life, but I have finally found my niche! I love helping others, meeting new people, discovering new things and making others happy. I am so comfortable being surrounded by creative people, folks who share many of my interests and who so openly share of themselves. We have traded stories about our families, our dreams, difficult times, blessed experiences, our homes, crafting projects, junking adventures, vacations, recipes, DIY nightmares and triumphs, accomplishments (both personal and professional), so many, many things. Our bond has reached beyond "Blogland" and into numerous social media venues. I am overjoyed to have reconnected with old friends and to have made so many new ones! You just don't know how much of a positive impact this experience has provided me with!
Thank you, to all of you, for making these last two years so incredibly fun, insightful and joyous! Thank you for reading, following and commenting on my posts. Thank you for being you and for allowing me to be me! Love y'all!
