When I started blogging in late 2009, I really didn't know much about it. I wasn't aware of statistics, etiquette, or anything about followers. I just blindly jumped in, muddled about for a while, and finally settled on a focus: sharing writing resources with others on the journey to publication.
Way back then, I was lucky to garner a few readers each day, along with the occasional comment. Things have changed, and so have I. I really love the interaction of a blog. Discovering new blogs when I comment back to visitors who stop by. Developing relationships with people around the world, despite the fact we may never meet.
Blogging is work, but it's so worthwhile. Today is a day to say thank you to everyone who has taught me and enriched my life in the writing world. And thank you to Teri, who just became the 200th follower! I appreciate each and every one of you!
How has blogging (or reading blogs) made a difference for you?
