Day 152. Great Start

We’re just a few days into the New Year, and already I am lucky enough to have a fellow blogger think my blog is worthy of recognition.  Just the other evening I realityblogawardreceived an email from the young woman behind the blog, Cancer In My Thirties, telling me she was nominating me for the Reality Blog Award.

I can’t tell you how touched I am.  With everything going on in her own life, to think she even takes the time to read my blog amazes me, thrills me and humbles me. I hope you read her blog.  Her willingness to share what she’s going through, and the honesty with which she writes, really deserves your time.  You won’t be sorry, trust me.  She is a courageous and inspiring woman, is all I can say.

You tell me every time you visit.  Every time you return.  Every time you ‘like’.  Every time you comment.

Seeing my ‘views’ increase all the time, watching my number of ‘followers’ grow and grow and grow is an absolute thrill.  Realizing, whenever I look at the map, just how far-reaching my blog is, absolutely amazes me. The response I got after being Freshly Pressed was ‘off the charts’.  An indescribable feeling.

As if all this isn’t beyond fabulous, a number of you have thought enough of what I’m writing, to give me several Continue reading
