For every one of my nominations, there have been special moments that have stuck with me and encouraged me in my time blogging. All of these bloggers have made me feel welcomed through their kind words and inspiration and I can’t thank them more for what they’ve done. Like PewPew said at the end of his post:
“It wasn’t about the stats, its about being appreciated for being who you are, for being loved by strangers that you’ve never met.”
It’s totally true. I couldn’t care less about my stats–just knowing that there are a few bloggers out there with whom I’ve made a connection is enough. It’s the most rewarding part about blogging.
And this blog reminds me that family runs both ways. That likes and comments feel just as good to someone else as they do to me. It’s great to have people who care about you, but you have to care for them in return.
May you always feel the love that a family can bring.
