It's June. And what a joy! Summer is on the horizon; it's my birthday month; and Pen and Prosper celebrates 10 years in the blogosphere.
Indeed three is a charm!
In 2009, I began this blog as a way to build my platform and share my love of all things literary.
And I must admit, it has exceeded my expectations.
My journey, (though challenging) has been very rewarding.
For those of you who blog, I'm sure I don't have to tell you how much work is involved to pull this off for a decade.
Blogging has allowed me to connect, reflect, teach, grow, learn and cultivate friendships with fellow writers across the globe.
It has enabled me to speak my own personal truths, champion important causes, instruct and inspire others.
I have published over 770 posts and have been blessed to have my efforts recognized with numerous awards in the evolving years. I've even made some money along the way.
None of this would be possible without you, the reader.
My heart-felt appreciation to those of you who read my work faithfully; who comment on my blog posts; who "Tweet" to your "peeps"; who purchase my products; who contribute guest blog posts; who make me laugh; who offer encouragement (week after week, month after month, year after year).
And those who send me chocolate via snail mail. :-)
In the words of a popular song: "Yes, it's true. I'm so happy to be stuck with you!"
Thanks for reading Pen & Prosper.
Have a great week ahead!
JenP.S. If you've been reading my work regularly over the years and enjoy it, (particularly those who may not typically comment), I'd love for you to say "hi" in the comments section.
It would add to my joy.
I promise, I don't bite. Unless you're a steak. :-)
