Hello Everyone: New readers, Old Readers, people passing through, people deciding to stay. Hello and welcome, I’m so glad you are here.
I usually only post on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, but I want to take this small moment just to express my gratitude for what has been an incredible 24 hours.
First and foremost, I really must thank Meredith over at Faking Picture Perfect. Meredith was one of my first followers, she has been a regular commenter of my posts and, most importantly, she nominated my post on motherhood and identity to be Freshly Pressed. In essence, none of ya’ll would have found me if it wasn’t for her, and I don’t think that my blog would be the same without her quiet encouragement. So thank you a million times, Meredith.
If you like my blog, you’ll love Meredith’s blog. Please stop by and say hello to her!
I’m overwhelmed by the wonderful comments that I’ve received from you all over these past few days. Thank you for taking the time to read my words, think about them, and comment on them. For those of you who have chosen to read some of my other posts, I’m beyond grateful. While I’m not fool enough to think that all of you will be consistently returning to my blog, I’m hopeful that a few of you have seen something in me that is worthy of your time. I can’t guarantee that I won’t write a shitty boring post now and again, but I can certainly promise that I’ll always write with honesty and maybe a little bit of humor. I started this blog to build a community of thought and discussion, and today I am one step closer to that goal.
Thank you, also, to the Word Press editors who found me worthy. This was an overwhelming and wonderful experience. I hope to do it again sometime!
Bottom line: Welcome. Thank you. You humble me by your presence. I’m grateful that you are here. Please come by early and often and say hello.
