Blog kindness train

on 14 October 2014

Well I did it, or should I say we did it!!! You beautiful, lovely people have made my day, week, month, year!!! Why you may ask? I must share I’ve reached 70 followers, all thanks to the incredible supportive WordPress community. I was going to write this post when I reached 50 followers, then I went away for the weekend. I had blogged about that, and I had wrote something everyday for ten days straight. And here you are reading my ramblings, I’m so happy, honoured, ecstatic, and every other adjective I can think of. Thank you so much I write about what’s on my mind, and then look for link ups to share and support each blogger that hosts them. I love the power of the ping back, it’s literally launched my blog from being created on WP to other social media. I was so shy when I first started, and I was only writing once a month or when I felt inspired. Then my life changed and became stressful and uncertain at times, and writing became the only thing I had to help me cope. Sure I had friends, amazing ones at that, but I didn’t want to impose in their lives with my emotional upheaval. I wrote and edited and wrote some more, and people started reading. I felt a kindred relationship within the WordPress community. I didn’t edit my thoughts here I just let all my emotional “dirty” laundry hang out. And you accepted it, didn’t tell me to snap out of my sadness, you read along and encouraged me, and for that I’m grateful. I even found out on this blog journey that my brother whom I love, but we’re not close in distance or in age was reading my blog. Through it he was getting to know me, his little sister who had more to offer than just being young and naive. And if you’re reading this now dear brother, I want to say thank you. It means the world to me that you’ve been reading my ramblings. And every time I write something I think of our beloved Mom looking over my shoulder and smiling. It was through her I began to discover the love and freedom of writing. So my dear readers I challenge you today to keep this blog kindness train going. As part of spreading kindness please go and follow all the bloggers that have commented on this post. Go to their blog, comment on something they’ve written and tell them what you did. I wasn’t going to say anything, but I did this today for a new blogger. I want to say thank you for becoming my 70 th follower. I thought I would just let it be, but I thought this would be an awesome way to pay it forward. I’ve been blogging for almost a year and I still remember how excited I was to get 5 followers and 5 subscribers. Knowing what I’m musing about is being read by 1 or 100 people is my ultimate goal. I believe we all just want to be read, heard, and understood. I encourage everyone who reads this to spread the blog love and follow your fellow bloggers. I thank you from the very depths of my heart for following along on my journey. I write from my heart, and even more when the tears start to flow. Much love and great writing vibes sent to you all. ?❀️

        I just wanted to let you know Green Bee that I wasn’t able to comment on your previous blog’s until your home renovation one. I did though and look forward to reading more, alas I must work now. Blessings to you. ?

          Thank you. I’m not sure I’ve cracked the technical side of my blog yet. I mostly post and manage from my iPhone which is lazy of me. I need to spend a day on my computer sorting it out. Thanks for taking the time to comment & sorry it wasn’t straight forward for you. πŸ™‚

          • jsackmom says:

            It’s all good Green Bee! I post from my iPhone too, you just have to go into your dashboard and selects posts then click on that and see quick/edit. Click on that and go down the list till you see allow comments allow pings. Check those off and then click on update and your readers will be able to comment. My comments weren’t working 3 weeks ago and I had 2 very kind blogger friends help me out on navigating it. So here I am paying it forward to you. ?

          • Green Bee says:

          • jsackmom says:

    I was very touched by your heart focus, it’s about others, which shows how kind and thoughtful you are and that you don’t think Blogging is just about you, Thank You and may Blessings.
