Well, it's been a year since I have started this blog, The Countdown Begins (1st Post), at the suggestion of a friend and co-worker that had been reading my wedding blog (my first). Thank you for getting me started, you know who you are. I guess its safe to say that with almost 10,000 reads from over 10 different countries in 1yr, the blog has been a success. While I may have pissed off a few people in a few of my posts, the number of positive comments and feedback that I have received have far outweighed any negative complaints. Far! My apologies to those that may not have liked what they were reading at any time for any reason.
Just having the support of my husband has been encouraging alone. A man who has often helped me with my composing during times I had technical difficulties. A man that let me talk about him and our adventures. Thank You Furman...for your undying love and support. Oh, and for helping me with some great content. lol.
And thank you to a dear friend that has been an avid reader and has acted as my in-house editor at times. lol Your tips have been appreciated although I've still had some "Oh no she didn't!" moments. lmao Your encouragement and support has meant the world to me.
Thank you for keeping me going, you know who you are.
Oh, and I have to mention the encouraging praise that I received from my mother. This, was after someone gave her a printed copy of one of my posts in obvious complaint. After she asked if I had written what she was given, she said "You should be a writer!" ROFLMAO I'll never forget it. My mom! With her not knowing anything about computers, I never would have thought she'd be interested in reading what I write. Thank you to the person that shared my blog with my mom. Thank you Mom! It was such an incredible moment.
I knew I was onto something. Nobody could hold me back!
