An Open Letter to My "Followers" & Readers...
It's June. And I'm filled with Joy! Not only will I be blessed to celebrate my birthday in the next few weeks, this officially marks Pen and Prosper's two year anniversary in the Blogosphere. Yay!
Although I was a professional writer long before I jumped on the Blogging bandwagon, I admit that I find myself now, somewhat at a loss for words.
I can not begin to tell you how humbled, honored, grateful, and sometimes (even surprised) I have been at your collective support, inspiration and friendship.
I have been inspired by your words, we have laughed together, learned together, Emailed between posts, prayed during tough times and losses, followed each other's career moves, and even shed a tear or two. :-)
I feel blessed by our association.
I am particularly grateful for my first 12 people, (and you know who you are)who clicked the "Google Friend Connect" when I was just starting out and trying to feel my way through things.
For quite a while, I wrote without any validation or comments. I didn't know whether I was on the "write track" or the road to ruin. :-)
Seeing your faces on my Blog is what kept me going. Truthfully.
Although I may not have received any Blogging awards by noted organizations, I still feel very "accomplished" and successful for the community we have created here. Different faces. Different places. From across the globe.
You guys rock! I couldn't do this without you.
Of course, I don't know if I'll be up to the challenge of doing this for 2 more years; only time will tell.
But it's been a blast so far! And I look forward to our future journey.
