Let's Talk About Friends.

Blogging is pretty intimidating. Every post starts with a mere idea. The idea is brought to life with imagery and words that (hopefully) convey the right message. The end result is your thoughts & worked bared to whomever may be (hopefully) reading. 

It's really quite the process. I find it very brave. And I have nothing but respect for this amazing blog world in which so many remarkable people choose to share their thoughts & inspirations with the world.

That said, on post #17 of this humble blog's beginnings, I want to reflect on the support that my friends, new & old, have shown. 

Thank you for being a first reader.
For the Facebook page likes & status update engagements (Thanks, Mom, for liking about 6 status updates in one night). 
For the retweets & favorites on Twitter & the <3's on Instagram
For the 22 "Google Friend Follows" in just 2 weeks. 
For all the comments on posts thus far.
Thank you to my girlfriends + Doug for being my biggest fans.

To a select few {You know who you are} -- thank you for bouncing around ideas, words of encouragement, "I loved your post today!" texts & "Hey, have you thought of this..." feedback.

And, for the new friends that I have made in the virtual blog world, thank you! I've learned so much already & am looking forward to many blooming friendships to come.

I know I am just getting started. I have a long way to go & many ideas that I can't wait to implement. I am excited to grow.
But, today, I am feeling grateful. And I want you to know it.

  8. What a great and honest post. I love bloggers that not only showcase their interests, but are also personal as well. Blogging is hard. I've done it for 4 years and have definitely taken long hiatuses in between. Stick to it and you will be successful! Congratulations on having 22 followers in 2 weeks. That's a great accomplishment!
