YIPPEE! Pen & Prosper Makes Three!
The joy of June brings many pleasures.
Among them is the three-year anniversary of this blog. Yay!
I'd like to take this opportunity to express my heart felt appreciation for your support and readership along this journey.
Truth be told, I was a reluctant blogger. But since being on board, I have connected with some truly awesome folks, established a more solid "platform" for my writing career, and have learned and laughed a lot along the way.
Words can not adequately convey my appreciation.
In the famous words of Elizabeth Barrett-Browning, "How do I love thee? Let me count the ways."
...I love that you have allowed me to share my thoughts, challenged my way of looking at things, and have inspired me to always give my best.
...I love that many of you have supported me with other online projects---from making comments on guest posts, to registering for my online classes, to sharing helpful links.
...I love that you "get me".
...I love that you accept my constructive criticism and "tough love" with the right spirit.
...I love that you CHOOSE to read and follow Pen and Prosper out of the countless online options available, and with limited time. :-)
A special thanks to my first followers; you know who you are!
A special thanks to my regular commenters: Karen Lange, Linda O., Susan Sundwall, H.P. and Yasmin. To Art Plotnik, who was one of the first to connect with a comment. A blog without comments is like a meal without dessert.
Janette D., thanks for being one of my biggest cheerleaders!
A special thanks to those of you who share my posts via your social media forums.
A special thanks to my advertisers.
A special thanks to those who have submitted guest posts, enabling me to take
"mini-breaks," and also allowing me to provide a bit of variety for my reading audience.
...And last but not least, many thanks to the editors that have recognized this blog (and the hard work that goes into it), in their "top blogs" listings. It is the ultimate compliment.
I look forward to more blogging, more joy, and more avenues to know more and grow more!
If you haven't already, please consider "following" through the Google Connect option that reads "join this site". Seeing your smiling faces keeps me motivated!
Thanks again. "You are the wind beneath my wings."
