I am always touched and amazed at how kind and wonderful people I have never met in person can be when commenting to posts on my blog. It truly means the world to me when someone cares enough to take the time to share an idea, an opinion, a well wish or an experience. I try to make sure I reply to each and every comment I receive.
My original intent when I began this blog was to share my experiences and inspire others who may share similar interests. I love to write and be creative and blogging has been the perfect outlet for me. I'm so happy I decided to begin this blog clear back in October 2011. Like everything else, it is hard to believe it was really that long ago.
I spend a great deal of time writing my posts, taking pictures, coming up with ideas and ultimately sharing my life with you. It is my favorite hobby and I hope to continue with my blogging for a long time to come. This blog is a place for positive and inspiring communication and I think we've accomplished that rather well.
I've been very fortunate to be well treated by my readers. I know other fellow bloggers that have not been so fortunate and it is heart breaking to hear them tell of their struggles with nasty comments and trolls. I used to have an open commenting format, but a few years ago was forced to turn on comment moderation when the spammers got out of control, darn them!
A handful of times I've had a few not nice comments left for me, sadly some of them were from my own family members if you can believe that, but in the rare instance that it does happen I simply hit the delete button. There is no room here for that kind of nonsense. We have become such a community of good, kind and positive people here and that is exactly how it should be. I'm not about to let a few bad comments ruin that for us.
To all of you who visit my blog, read my posts and care about me and my family I thank you from the very depths of my heart. Thank you to those who leave such wonderful comments and keep me inspired to keep writing and posting.
