November, when America celebrates Thanksgiving, is the perfect month to have a bloghop about being thankful. Today I'm taking part in the I'm Thankful for my Readers! created by Vikki, over at Scribblings of An Aspiring Author and Tara, over at Tara Tyler Talks. Thank you both for hosting this event. You can sign up, and read more, about the bloghop here.
First, a big Thank You to the talented Matthew MacNish, double blogger extraordinaire, over at The Quintessentially Questionable Query Experiment & The Kindness Project for being my very first follower! This may not have been possible if the AMAZING Alex J. Cavanaugh hadn't told me I needed to add the Google Friends connect widget to my side bar.
I actually begin blogging in 2007, but I wasn't really part of the blogging community. In March of this year, I stumbled across The A to Z Challenge, brain child of master blogger, Arlee Bird, over at Tossing it Out, and discovered a community.
Today, I am here to say THANK YOU to you, my readers, my community. Thank you for all your kind words; they lift my spirits. Thank you for being a faithful follower; it lets me know I'm not alone. Thank you for your continued support; it gives me strength to go on. Thank you for your awards; they make me feel loved. Thank you for sticking with me; it makes me feel special. Thank you for making me laugh out loud; especially on those days when I feel like crying. Thank you for believing in me, and helping me believe in myself. Thank you for just being my friends. As Clearance the angel, from It's A Wonderful Life, says: No man is a failure who has friends. Thank you all for being my friends.
