I only started blogging in September 2011. It’s not even six months. I still don’t know what half of my dashboard is for! I told nobody for ages. A friend of mine encouraged me to let my Facebook friends know so I did. On Halloween night I got my first comment from http://katiescamerablog.wordpress.com/ Her message caught me off guard. With the night that was in it, and despite the wonderful message, I almost felt spooked when the comment appeared on my computer screen. The shock of it made my face go red. I must have read it one hundred times! It was like I wasn’t alone in my writing space any longer. Someone had read and appreciated my humble protection blessing. I kept getting up from the computer and sitting back down again. The children where out celebrating Halloween and a talented photographer/blogger on the other side of the world was thanking me for my beautiful blessing!
I had sent out the blessing with good intentions but I didn’t expect any thanks. I started this blog to inspire others with my writing and reflections. I didn’t expect to have followers. I took a break from blogging at the start of the year to refocus and address other things in my life that needed attention. I didn’t expect to be missed.
Thank you for the warm welcome back. I feel my writing space is filling up with creative and caring fellow bloggers and cyber friends. It makes this isolating but passionate pastime of mine less isolating and gives me so much pleasure and inspiration to read your blogs. For that I thank you, and to Katie in Sante Fe, you have no idea what your message meant to me. For one, it inspired me to keep blogging.
To my followers and to those who visit, thank you for taking the time to read my posts and for your kind encouraging comments.
Keep Well, Aileen
