Blogging

As some of you may know, my blog went down, crashed into oblivion, disappeared, just gone.

I wanted to take this opportunity to express my exceedingly heartfelt thank you to those of you who have stuck by me through all of this.  I was admittedly devastated.  I didn’t realize how much the loss of my blog meant until a few of you managed to get through even though the site was iffy at best.

It took some time to get wp up and running again.  In that time, I learned a very heartfelt lesson.  How much being here, reading and communicating with many of you, sharing your thoughts, my thoughts, events, poems, stories means the world to me.

I felt incommunicado, cut off, and the longer it went on, I have to say, the more hurt at heart I felt.  Strange I thought at first.  Then I realized exactly how much being here, with you, has come to mean to me.  It is invaluable and priceless.

In the past, before blogging, my window on the world, included fb sharing gardens, ideas, pictures.  A quick hello to friends and family. Searching the web for interesting information and ideas.

Now, my day doesn’t feel quite complete until I’ve been on the site, connected with you through Reader, or checking out your blogs for all the amusing, anecdotal bits and pieces, thoughts, introspective (in some cases) stories as well as tid bits of your lives while sharing bits of mine.

For this, I must humbly thank each of you for sticking with me, for being there. Often through out this mind blowing experience, your words of encouragement have meant worlds.  Because I can’t get out and about as easily or readily as I would like, this has become an important form of communication for me.  I would love to thank you individually, but that is an impossibility as there are so many of you that have stuck it out and continue visiting my blog.

I look forward with complete joy to continuing and sharing. 🙂

Until next time,

  1. You just described WHY I blog. Why, i think, most of us blog. For many of us, due to age or physical issues or living in places where friends are hard to find, the computer and blogging offer us a way to discover real live people. Maybe some of you are “virtual,” but many of you are very real. You really ARE my friend, even though we’ve never met.

    1. You bring tears of joy to my eyes. I consider you a very dear friend. You are one of the valued ppl in my life, and that you struggled to stay connected means more than words could possibly convey😚😍you are indeed very special to me now and always. My post script on b day cards etc is “I love you always and forever” and that’s how much you have touched my heart. I value you now and always.

  2. I’m glad everything is sorting out for you. There are good things and bad things to social media, it’s heartwarming to know you harvest the good and benefit from it so wonderfully. You are a wonderful writer and person. Your support and comments are always uplifting. Thank you for not giving up and for being a shining star in the WP community.

    1. Omg, Sheryl, You brought tears to my eyes. I’m so unbelievably touched, sincerely. I always look for you. You are a fabulous writer and you give so graciously always. Your blog is always spot on and witty. I’ve missed you. My spark was dimmed for a bit, but it’s shining bright now. Thank you so much! 🙂

  3. I’m so glad you’re back 😀 I have missed you bunches. I know it must have been difficult, but I’m glad you stuck with it!

    1. Awe thank you Sumyanna. I’ve missed you so much. You managed to get one little piece through the mayhem and it touched my heart when I received it. Marilyn, fought heaven and earth to find me and emailed when she couldn’t get to me. Seems if I managed to talk to respond to someone’s blog, she found me and then saw my post. Very strange. You and Sheryl and Sarah and Sarah managed to keep finding me and touched my heart so much. I knew you’d all become important, I’ve mentioned it a couple of times, but I felt the loss of you astoundingly difficult. So I’m doubly glad I’m back now xoxo
