For Valentine's Day* An Open Letter to my Readers, Followers, and Friends...


"Yes it's true. I'm so happy to be stuck with you."
Fancy meeting you here.
It's been about five years since this blog's inception, and many of you have been faithful "followers," even when I was unsure of my own direction.
And even when being "courted" by other bloggers. :-)

Through the years, I've changed the template here, the logo, the font---even my hair color.
But one thing remains constant: my heartfelt appreciation for your readership, confidence, support and friendship.

I am so grateful and honored that we are still digging each other, sharing our thoughts, engaging and growing, like all good "relationships" should.

This Blog initially began as a means to build my platform for future publishing projects.
Not to mention, everybody was doing it.
Little did I know that it would be such a blast! Not only has it enabled me to build my platform; it has helped me to build my base of friends across the globe, and my knowledge base as well.
I've even garnered a few awards for my blogging efforts in between. Who knew? :-)

After more than 500 posts, 5012 comments, and over 180, 000 page views, I'm still on the scene.
And I have you to thank.
Over the years, I've seen many Blogs fold--for one reason or another. Blogging is hard work, and no one makes it alone.

So here's the deal...
If you keep reading, reaching out, responding through comments, and coming back, I'll do my best to give you my best.

Another month. Another year. And who knows, we may even experience that timeless love that country singers croon about in their songs.

Happy Valentine's Day!




  1. Hugs to you, oh wise one, you know how to spread the love, the information and the inspiration. Keep going in the Write Direction.
