Well it’s not very often I do two posts in one day, and I was going to not do any today, and catch up on reading some, but I have decided to jump in an join Kate for Thankful Thursday.
(And Garry, if you’re reading, that doesn’t mean I’m only thankful on Thursday, it’s just that this is the day I choose to express it.)
Today I am thankful for blogging.
This morning I wrote a post about how I feel like I need to be this great blogger, with lots of followers, so I feel I am successful. I didn’t intend for it to be a ‘woe is me, look I only have 56 followers post,’ but rather a look at how I have bound my worth up in something so ridiculous.
My inbox has been filled with lovely thoughtful comments from fellow bloggers, encouraging me, that they too have felt the same, and to keep doing what I do.
I love blogging for the ability to share, to make sense of my thoughts, to capture moments in time with my family, but also for the relationships I have made. There are so many bloggers, who although we have never met, I now classify as friends, and I am so thankful for them.
And I’m also thankful for everyone of my now 57 google followers, 88 Facebook likers, and 159 twitter followers (even the really random ones). Thanks for your time reading and investing in me and my blog. I am so appreciative of every single one of you. Xxx
