It is crazy how fast time flew by! My blog reached its ….. uhm…
… second anniversary today. When I think back to the time I started it is almost unbelievable how far my blog has come. I started without knowing anything about blogging. I did not even realize when I started that I was blogging. My publisher set up everything for me and during some teaching lessons via telephone I figured out that I might have a blog. Although I was told about some functions, how to post, tips about posting, how to build a community…. in the end I only figured it out by growing into it over time.
Until I got the idea of blogging I was already happy when having one or two visitors each day. When I hit 50 followers I was dancing on the table because that meant there are 50 people who think what I am doing makes sense. Meanwhile, it is almost 1200 on WordPress only. Amazing to me!
What my blog has become is big part your credit! Only through your support, our interactions, inspired by your posts and creativity this has been possible. My blog definitely is a home. It is me and I feel wonderful in it. I love to have gatherings each day with all of you wonderful friends from all over the globe. I learned so much, gained so many insights, and found the greatest blessings.
During this time I made real friends who were there for me when I hit rock bottom for some days. They showed me that I am not alone and that there are people who care. You guys know who you are!
I also met friends in person and it was the most wonderful experience to see that what we felt as a connection over our blogs did not change when we met in real life. Actually, the connection got stronger! The next event regarding this will be the Blogger Bash in London on June 11! I will finally meet my blog siblings and many, many others! I am so very excited!
Even when I have to cut off a bit of my blogging due to my upcoming job I could never ever imagine leaving this place. NEVER!!! As long as you want me as long I will share with you what flows through my head and heart and what you are sharing with me and all the other wonderful people here on WordPress.
I raise my glass to honor you all my wonderful peeps! I thank you all from the bottom of my heart.
In Love and Light
