Has It Really Been A Year?!

I received a notice from WordPress this afternoon –

Happy-Anniversary

I can’t believe I’ve been writing here for a year already…and you know how I like to celebrate milestones. 🙂  As writers we need to enjoy the crossing of thresholds, the overcoming of obstacles, both big and small, and the one year anniversary of my blog is definitely a milestone.  I feel I should honor it and all of you by doing something special, but I’m not sure what would be appropriate.

First off, I suppose a big

Thank-You

 

is in order!  When I chose to start this blog, I was looking to create a platform for Rachael the writer – it’s grown into much more than that.

I love this space!  The encouragement I receive here makes me want to be more, to do more.  I’ve grown as a writer.  I’ve made friends here.  Found support here.  This blog makes me write when I don’t feel like writing anything at all.

I can share my passions aside from writing.  I can geek out.  I can reflect.

And through this space I continue to learn, be inspired, and find new interests.  So thank you to all of you for your continued hard work and passion!

So as I reflect on the passing of this last year, I turn a hopeful eye to the future and the changes that are coming.  Thank you for joining me on this journey and I look forward to continuing to share it with all of you!

Best wishes to you, my friends!

xx, Rach

Helpful Site: Write to Done

HelpfulTipsI was bouncing around the internet, instead of writing, because I was still enjoying my morning tea and didn’t quite have the brain capacity for anything beyond reading emails and Facebook statuses, and luckily, I found something of use amongst the nonsense, a website called Write to Done.  They offer a section for submitting material as a guest blogger (here are their guidelines), they have a free book, and over 200,000 monthly readers, so it might be worth a look-see.

Happy Sunday!
