It’s been awhile since I’ve reached out to thank faithful readers of hugmamma’s mind, body and soul. Views have surpassed any number I would have imagined possible for me, a 61-year old wannabee writer wanting to give voice to my thoughts, feelings, and opinions. Any blogger will tell you, as any author of books would, that readers are an important part of the equation. I take that back, they’re actually an essential element for any blogger or writer’s success. At least that’s my opinion. Others may feel they do just fine in isolation.
In July I’ll have been blogging a year. If I felt my readers were done with listening to what I say, I might decide to take it down a notch and pursue other avenues for my passion. My WordPress experience has been the best by far, having started on Blogger.com with no comments to the 35 posts I wrote, after which I was on Oprah.com where I felt well received, and where joining community discussions was easily accomplished. But with her transition to OWN TV, Oprah‘s blog became more like a stepchild. Hence my transition to WordPress.com.
I want to thank all those who have subscribed to my blog, whether by email or rss feed or any other avenue with which I’m technologically unfamiliar. Following are those who I know for sure who subscribe.
The WordPress bloggers include:
|Beneath The Tin Foil Hat|
|Jackie Paulson Author|
|My English Thoughts|
I congratulate all of these bloggers who are also following their own voices. Family and friends have also subscribed, but where I once knew who you all were, I no longer seem able to identify you as that capacity seems to have been removed from my blog. But you know who you are, and I thank you all for supporting me all this time…from the bottom of my hearts. The same applies to all, and there are many, who have subscribed by rss feed who are not within the WordPress community. I thank you as well, for wanting to stay connected.
I hope I’ve kept you entertained while I’ve satisfied my need to unload all these words which would otherwise have exploded like magma from a volcano.
mahalo for letting me overflow into your lives…and let’s see where life takes us…hugmamma.
What a sweet post Hugmamma. And you are so right, our blogs exists because there are people – friends – who read our words, are willing to witness a part of our lives with us, share adventures and opinions. Praise for readers all over the world, and hugs for you!
You’ve always been one of my best blog buddies…still are. 🙂
🙂 right back at you!
You are welcome! You have so many great posts on here. I don’t have time to post notes on all of them, but you sure do cover all kinds of interesting things here. I’m glad you are enjoying it also.
My brain just overflows with stuff. The common thread through all is compassion and positive energy. If I can help others with anything I write, I’ll have accomplished my goal in blogging. 🙂
That was so nice of you to acknowledge your subscriber’s.
I really do appreciate subscribers. After all, they’re the backbone of a blog’s readership. Without you, not sure how long I’d continue blogging. So sincere thanks…hugmamma. 🙂
