Right, I can’t actually put into words how happy I feel right at this minute; when I set up this blog eleven months ago, I never thought that it would lead to anything. This blog was created to be something, personal; a place for reflection and for myself. What has actually happened has not only shocked me but has sometimes moved me to tears. Today, I reached 10,000 hits on my blog and I have gained 1,000 incredible followers. Bloggers that want to listen to my thoughts, comment on my ideas, read my posts and reflect with me. I cannot thank you all enough for the confidence you have given me in not only my ideas and in my ability to write and review, but in my understanding of books and authors and therefore ultimately myself. Today, I received my first paper-back book through the post to read and review, and I was interviewed for a podcast as a guest reviewer. If you had told me all of that would have happened eleven months ago I would have laughed and told you that no matter what I did this blog would never have given me that much; and yet here I am. Close to tears, but smiling (^ as you can see above) All I can say is thank you. From the bottom of my heart, you lovely, lovely bloggers.
