I hope you all have your party hats at hands because today I invite you all to my anniversary party. Don’t worry I am still running around with an ice pack on my head after Amanda’s award party (yes this will be a running gag for a while). Therefore no champaign!!!!!
But I can offer a choice of any long drinks or cocktails!!!
May 1st my publisher set up my blog here on WordPress. Honestly, I did not even know what blogging means. But I was proud of getting my own English author website and was curious about this new adventure. Would I have ever thought what I might find here? NEVER!!!
Some stats: Within the first four months of this year the visits of my blog have more than doubled the number of the eight months before. The “likes” even reached almost 4 times the number.
I’ve had 14’852 views, visitors from 97 (!) countries, and created 618 posts. I got nominated 24 times for 15 different awards. I made 873 followers all together – WordPress only 484.
Over time I have grown into this blogging adventure. I personalized my blog more, and made myself a part of this community. I have found people over here who I dare to call dear and close friends. A sentence I often used throughout the past year: If I wrote my book only in order to land here and find you, it was all worth it.
I prepared a short voice message for you:
You my friends not only brighten up my day daily. You also made me work on myself even more. I intended to provide a space of light. Whenever I was in a turmoil my blog was motivation and therapy for myself to not turn away but go through it and find the blessing behind in order to post about it. You guys are my friends, my teachers, and also mentors! Each one of you has a certain and important story to tell. I am blessed that I may know about them and learn from what you have to share with us.
I thank you all for every visit, every like, every single comment.
I love you all from the bottom of my burning heart – each on of you!
I wanted to conquer the world. But coming here… the world conquered me!
🍸 *NOW CHEERS TO ALL OF YOU GREAT PEOPLE*🍸
In Love and Light
