The flowering plum tree is in bloom right now, a bright burst of pink out the front door. Every time I walk out the door this week I want to grab my camera and take more pictures of the pink blossoms. In the sun, in the rain, they draw me in. Every year I take pictures of them and no matter how long I’ve done that, every spring I want to take more pictures. (And yes, I noticed from a few of those pictures that I need to clean my lens.)
Yesterday marked six years that I’ve been blogging. It’s a date that I write in my planner and like to remember. Maybe it’s silly I celebrate my blog’s birthday in a way by doing that, but it has become an important part of my life over the years. And it is a birthday of sorts. Last year I wrote about five years blogging and now another year of blogging has past. (Isn’t it funny that ‘blogging’ is now a word? I think it kind of is.) I’m looking forward to another year writing here. I have a lot of dreams for this space. I’m looking forward to connecting with new readers, new businesses to promote through sponsorship, and am excited about collaborating with some other bloggers and friends about some ideas I’ve dreamed up. But most of all, I just feel so grateful for all of you. Right here. Right now. For reading this. For brightening my day with your kind comments. For being such a blessing in our family’s life. Thank you.
Before I asked you to share a bit about yourself. Remember that post? What fun Jeff and I had reading your comments! And then today I went to link to it and saw that when my blog got switched over to the new platform, none of those comments made it. Darn. I so loved those. (But I knew before switching over that sometimes comments can be lost on some posts and I like this blogging platform so much better.) If you already commented before, but feel inspired to do so again, I invite you to. If you haven’t commented there yet and would like to, please do! We love connecting with you. And it’s my most favorite way I can think of to celebrate WoolyMossRoots’ sixth birthday! (It’s okay, you can think I’m corny.)
