As I’m sitting here, I have 215 email notifications of posts by bloggers I follow. I actually cleared my email of over 300 of them this morning already. I become overwhelmed BUT I don’t turn off the email notifications because I’m afraid that I’ll miss your post! Am I crazy? DON’T answer that.
One of your posts today was quite disheartened by the lack of interaction with those who follow the blog. I’ve actually read many posts to this same effect and see bloggers question if they should just give up.
SO, today, I’d like to say thank you. Thank you. I’ve been on FB for 8 years when I started this blog in Feb. I’m almost never on it now and the reason is you. I have a stronger sense of community here. It isn’t just likes and comments, no, it is what you write as well.
I am amused, uplifted, anchored, I relate with as well as exposed to new ideas….I laugh and cry with you, get the creepies and the giggles but always, always….I am inspired.
You have made me more….I am more open, willing to explore and willing to share, more creative, deeper and lighter.
I am often overwhelmed with notifications so I click and read yet am often lazy, tired or just lost in them all and forget to hit “like” or have grown weary in commenting until I begin to leave a single word at which point I just stop as it doesn’t feel like I’m doing them justice. But, I am here. I am reading and hearing your voice. I am moved, impacted AND I appreciate you more than you know.
Don’t be disheartened nor discouraged. Continue….you are touching others even when you don’t see it.
