For seven months now I have battled to get back to some semblance of what I was before.
My blogging has been sputtery.
Yet many of you still swing by.
This post is to say thank you.
Two things so far have nearly destroyed this humble little blogging effort of mine.
One: the hostile actions of a few very influential bloggers in this community.
They nearly ended the blogs in their first week – and again about a year ago.
The other thing: those seven days of no sleep, and the aftermath, about 7 months ago.
I only know who visits here by comments left or emails received. Right now it’s taking everything I can just to kick out a post every other day or so between the two blogs. I read every comment, and they make me smile because you people are so beautiful.
But I’ve got a heaping backlog of unanswered comments.
I keep meaning to scare up some time to reply to them all.
I thought about shorter replies, or maybe sending out e-mails.
But some comments are so old you may have forgotten what even you said.
So instead of commenting on your comments…
I thought it would be better to comment…on the commenters. : )
You people bring tears to my eyes.
You represent what’s best about this blogging community. I don’t care how many readers you have, how many books you’ve published, or how much money you make. Your hearts are fabulous and I cannot tellyou how thankful I am for you.
And so I begin…
Sylvia, author of The Sylvr Pen
I’ve always learned something reading you.
You have been such a steadfast bloggy friend.
This has been such an off and on time for me, but you’ve been there and I appreciate it.
And yes – you really do have a silver pen
Martha from Meditations of my Heart
I have bought a total of about five books in the last three years – all of them by bloggers. When yours comes out it will be number six. (and I never read fiction) I love the way you see Scripture. You’ve been so kind to stay with me during this time when I can barely scribble out posts, so thank you Martha, really – your words always mean the world to me.
If I know you’ve hung with me…
through these last seven months…
there’s a special and unique thank for you.
There is more to this. Please come back.
