1st, a little Back Story—
I was pushed into blogging by a friend and a cousin. I’d never even heard of “blogging” before it. That was 1½~2 years ago. And it has been truly AWEsome finding my way around this “blogosphere!”
It has been sOooo cOOl “meeting” sOooo many other creative, compulsive, obsessive, hoarder’ish, can’t-help-ourselves, KINDRED SPIRITS! Especially since common-folk don’t get it.
Nicole–at Thrifty Decorating wrote a post yesterday to say she needed to discontinue hosting her Thrifty Thursday linky party. Awwww. But I certainly understood the reasons she sited.
And it was those reasons that really made think about ALL the incredibly generous ladies who, each week, open up their blogs for us to share OUR projects. I feel bad to say—I never gave consideration to how much work must be involved in it. Gosh–have I shown MY appreciation & gratitude–??
They have totally helped me:
- By introducing me to so many of you: from reading through the funny, and interesting comments; and by way of some really cool blog names that have attracted my attention!
- I’ve discovered so many of you perusing the many fabulous projects you’ve linked up; and the compliments coming back to me about the projects I’ve linked up!
- My blog has grow from their highlighting and featuring some of my projects! It’s exciting to see my newbie-small blog stats go crazy on those occasions!
- I’ve learned how to do all kinds of “blogging-things” thanks to their/your step-by-step instructions! And I’ve learned why some things (computers and internet) won’t work some times—power tools make way more sense to me!
Much Gratitude, and Appreciation,
for all the encouragement, for all you’ve shared, and for all the time you’ve given up to those linky parties–and for the extra exposure to any of my projects! I am incredibly lucky for your kindnesses!
And Thank You to all my readers! It always amazes me to see how many views my blog gets—even if you’re not big “talkers!”
