When I started this blog two months ago, I really had no idea what would happen as a result of it. Would anybody read it? Would anybody like it? Would anybody care? Now this is my 65th (?) post and from post 1 to now I’ve developed a nice group of followers that span the globe, I have had my blog deactivated by WP (got flagged as spam), and I have “met” some amazing and supportive co-bloggers. It’s them who keep me coming back.
Sometimes I think about giving it up and getting my reading time back, but then I think about weird conflicts and what’s going on with his students and children, and they’re both lucky to have him. Or I think about my new Michigan friend Dad Knows and his views on family and nature; he doesn’t consider himself funny, but he’s funny. Then there’s the wry humor of Sweet Mother who reflects on the ridiculous in the world. Then there’s Abbie at All that makes you… who shares her very funny stories about raising three boys. And Omar at underdog comedy who provides a glimpse into the world of stand up. For new poetry everyday, there is Five Reflections who writes amazing haikus and Dean J. Baker who writes compelling poems that, for me, remember lost moments. And Habiba at My Word Your Ear.com who also writes poetry and provides insight into Pakistani life. And That Fred Guy who has a crazy Canadian sense of humor who cracks me up. Even though you would have to pry away grains from my cold dead hands, I do enjoy reading glutenvygirl as she explores the gluten-free life in a fun way. And then there’s bohemianspiritedmom who nominated me for the Genuine Blogger and the Sunshine Award. Her posts about being a mom and raising a family in this crazy world. So it is not WordPress that keeps me here, it’s all of you.
