Why hello there, I love that you have decided to read this letter. So much so that I wish I could give you a hug, but you’ll have to put up with my words instead. My WP friend Benjamin Grossman has nominated me for The Mystery Blogger Award, so I wanted to thank him and respond to this award in my unique way.
Today, I’ll take a moment to thank you all for joining my blogging/writing journey. Some of you have been there from the beginning and I don’t take it for granted. I still remember when Lance Sheridan liked and commented on my first publications, encouraging me to ‘keep going’; I desperately need to read those words. It was quickly followed by encouragement from Natasha (Tasha) and John Malone who were also pivotal in building my confidence in those first few weeks. Thank you so much.
Shout-outs must be said for the constant support of Chuck, Bharath, Nick, Jared & John A Reyes who have also been with me since those early days. Thank you gents 💜 I have many other fantastic male supporters, but you guys have seen so much of my journey; it deserves a special mention.
My female followers… my goodness I adore you. I will be honest and admit that sometimes I publish poetry and I worry about how it will be received, but time after time, you are there supporting me. Special mentions for Kritika, Lorraine, Nathi, Shweta, Katy, Radhika, Aashi, Jessica & Mich who have shown me WP love time and time again. It encourages me to see women cheering each other on, regardless of which genre they are writing in. I would not be as brave to publish what I do without you and my other female supporters 💞
For the rest of you, your likes and comments really do put a smile on my face. 😊💜
I’ll leave you with this unscripted audio – you know I like to treat the people who read the whole way…
