For a couple of weeks now I have been watching my "followers" number creep up to 99, back to 96, up to 98. Today, for the first time, I welcome my 100th follower. I can't believe I have hit a hundred. When I started this blog, I had four - one friend and three family members I FORCED to click 'follow' :)
I feel pretty humble, that your eyes are reading my words: from the States, from Malaysia, from Mumbai, from South Africa, from the Phillipines, from England..............I had no idea this world of online poets was out there, and am so thankful to have stumbled upon it, through the encouragement of my dear friend, Lynette, another blogger, over at Imagination Lane and the Imaginative Traveler. (Check out her travel photos, kids, they are O.M.G. good!)
Then I was on the Blogger forum asking how to find poets, and Robb responded, saying "Why don't you try Poets United?" When I found it, with its blogroll of fantastic poets, I was like a kid at Christmas! I have made such wonderful friends at Poets United. You all broaden my world in such a good way.
I don't do awards or giveaways. But I do do "Thank you"'s. Please believe me when I tell you I am thanking you from the bottom of my heart - for reading, for your kind and encouraging comments, for your inspiration and motivation, which I badly need in order to go on writing, and, most of all, for keeping on coming back.
I am going to have to up my game, to not lose this hundredth person, hey? I'm going to post this quickly, while you are still here :)
Thanks, kids. This world of poetry blogging has rejuvenated my life and my writing, more than you can imagine. I appreciate each and every one of you.
