I just want you to know that I enjoy blogging immensely.
I might not be the most prolific of bloggers, the most read, tweeted or visited blogger in the world, but I am a happy blogger! As someone wise said to me earlier this week, ‘The thing to remember about blogging is that there is no right or wrong way to do it – it’s YOUR part of the Internet and you can do whatever you like with it’.
I gain satisfaction from seeing my posts pop up, in the WordPress reader, on my Facebook page, on Twitter. One day I’ll get around to understanding how to ‘do’ Pinterest!
I am grateful to those of you who read my posts, who share my posts and especially those who read AND leave me a comment. My stats aren’t huge but they satisfy me.
I love interacting with those of you who come to visit me on my Deb’s World blog. I always try to reply to comments and at the very least acknowledge the comment with a ‘like’.
I love the family atmosphere of some of the blogging challenges, the link-ups, the blog hops, twitter hashtags, the special group of Facebook bloggers that Suzie has set up and the caring and sharing attitude of all those I have come across in this blogging journey.
Maybe it’s just that February is the month of love, but I’m feeling very happy and contented with things at the moment. Which I’m sure you’ll agree, is a good thing 🙂
I’ve also realised that as well as having a feeling of belonging in a blogging family, I also have a real family of bloggers. I’d like to introduce them to you:
- My daughter Melanie, has a blog called The Wandering Darlings, where she talks travel and shows off her photographic skills. She also blogs sometimes as Debbie’s Daughter.
- my sister Sharon, has a blog where she plays with images and words and shares her talents as both a writer and a photographer on Musings from the cold
- my brother-in-law Tim, has a blog with exceptional words and photos in completely different style to my sister but they also collaborate extremely well together. He blogs at Timothy Moss
So enjoy checking out my blogging family and continue to share the love! I’m including this post for Ritu’s #Loveuary challenge for this month.
Thanks again for showing me some bogging love 🙂
Can anyone match this claim to being a family of bloggers? Let me know in the comments.
