It was only one post but a beginning just the same. Now, in my life I have never had the discipline to keep a journal or diary. I would start, then a few days would go by and I would quit. After a sputtering start I resumed blogging in April 2012. Then the craziest thing happened. People started following the site. Amazing!! Today's count shows there are 44 followers. In my wildest dreams I could not have foreseen that 44 people would follow my blog. To date there have been 73 posts! And then there are the comments. (408) I would never have guessed how encouraging and empowering your comments have been. They have become the steam to keep my engine and dream alive. I am convinced that without you, the readers and especially the commentators, I would not be still blogging today. I thank you for all of your support.
It has made an incredible difference to me.
I started the blog as a virtual scrapbook and journal of my journey from homeowner and fosterparent to retirement and travel. Notes to myself and family. And it has become so much more. It has forged new friendships, mutual support and a source of ongoing ideas and information to me.
It seems to be now coincidence to me that this celebration of hitting the 10000 views has come following a brand new years beginning. It seems to be a brand new beginning for me as well. The dream is withing grasp. Thank-you for sharing the journey thus far..... stay tuned the best is yet to be!!
