I hit a milestone this week.
For a writer who didn’t know what to expect when she decided to share her ramblings with the outside world, this was a wonderful surprise.
I’ve had a lot of gaps in my postings – consumed by work, a lack of inspiration (especially during Covid), various stresses, and most recently a sick pup – and so many of you have stuck with me through it all, so Thank You!
To my new followers, “Hi! Welcome!“
One of my goals this year is to be better in this space, and having this many people to share it with is beyond encouraging, and I appreciate the support. Now that our furkid is on the mend, I can shift my focus, and I look forward to spending more time here with all of you.
Happy Friday and Happy Writing!
I received a notice from WordPress this afternoon –
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
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!
I 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.
