I was just thinking...

I love reading all the comments I get to my posts.  Granted, I don't have 500+ followers with a ton of comments coming in and I don't get to post as often as I'd like but, what I do have, I'm thrilled with.  Every single comment provides a link to some other wonderful place in this world, to some different way of thinking, to entirely different attitudes.  They make me think, they open up a whole new world, they make me laugh, they bring new friends.

A favorite photo to celebrate a favorite past-time.
(My first  - and only...LOL - sale on RedBubble)


I've been blogging now for two years (1/21 Happy Anniversary to me!) and it's probably one of the best learning experiences I've ever had.  It's gotten me through some tough times and it's often forced me re-evaluate attitudes.  It's encouraged me to tackle new photographic genres, to try and perfect the old ones, and it has inspired.

Two years and counting...THANKS!...it's all good!

    Since I moved my blog to Wordpress, I don't show up in Google Reader anymore. If you want to follow me you have to re-subscribe through the rss feed and it will appear in your Reader again. I don't often promote my blog like this but I thought you might want to know. :)

  6. Congratulations on the anniversary. I think blogging has kept me from going crazy. Or maybe I am crazy in the first place. Either way, I feel calmer and better and the support is phenomenal.

  19. The larger the following, usually the less interaction you have with your blogging friends. So, you have to find that balance between something meaningful and something trite. Good luck.
