Hands up those bloggers out there who started their blogs and were completely obsessed with the stats and comments ?
Yes well my hand is up !
It has been 2 years since I began my blog and began on my journey of discovery.
It was a wet day in May when I finally sat down and began to write a journal of my thoughts and love and shared those thoughts with the world.
Writing has always been a passion of mine from when I was a little girl, as was my love for photography and reading books.
Imagination comes from experience and play and all of those things were quite prevalent in my early life.
It was always such a big part of blogging to me to make sure that people were reading and that I wasn't just rambling on to myself.
I would check the stats a few times a day and sometimes be excited and other times be frowning at my lack there of.
2-3 years down the track I hardly ever check the stats and have only just checked my overall stats and found it to be well over 105,000 hits !
Wow when I think about it that is quite insane !
Creativity is something that we have to find all on our own. The need to capture an audience comes out of uncertainty and want for acknowledgement of our hard work.
It wasn't until the end of my first year of blogging that I realised that I was writing my blog for pleasure for myself.
I have always set out little tea parties for friends over many years and this time I really wanted to share my love of it and take pics.
Comments from readers made me smile but what has really given me the feeling of peace and harmony and love is when some of those comments have turned into budding friendships across the whole world.
Friend come from all over the place, some speak English and others do not. It is with a big smile that I welcome all of my happy readers into my little world of all thing French Blue and Peachy Pink.
Now days comments are from friends who I will probably never ever meet but that does not matter one little bit.
Some of these friends have become mentors and silent angels whose quite honesty and support have literally shifted my world and thoughts to new places.
Indeed, a very good blog friend of mine issued a challenge to her readers to follow their dream and to complete an unfinished project. Something clicked in my brain that day when I read this and I decided then and there to follow my dream of finally being a florist. 20 something years worth of dreaming about it, came to an end with an abrupt holt and 2 weeks later I was enrolled and ready to start my learning.
SEE.......faraway friends can come to us to teach us and encourage us and it can truly change our world.
So this afternoon as I sit here writing this post I would simply LOVE to say a big thankyou to each and everyone of you who take the time to visit my humble abode and read my ramblings and follow my dreams. Your silent and also verbal support keeps pushing me forward with invisible angel wings and continues to encourage me to grow as a human being.
I am very blessed to know you all. In my wildest dreams, one day we would all come together and meet, eat cupcakes in a beautiful garden and giggle the hours away
Love and Blessings to you all
