a heartfelt thank you

I'd like to thank every one of you who has visited my blog. Time is precious, especially if you are taking part in the challenge to blog every day, so I am touched that so many of you have taken the time to read my posts and share your thoughts with me.

How can I ever thank you all for your kind comments and good wishes throughout this month and during the past year. I have been so encouraged by all the supportive and caring comments that you have given me.

I was a bit nervous, when I first started this challenge, as it was a step into unknown territory for me. I haven't blogged everyday before and my posts are not usually full of writing. The last time I did any serious writing was for my college course, so I wasn't sure I could do it.

However, I am so glad I did as I have felt a real part of a community. I have enjoyed learning about, and been inspired by, the different lives you lead in all parts of the world. Some of you have difficulties to contend with on a regular basis, but are still incredibly positive and encouraging. I feel I have come to know some of you really well, even though we have never met.

I feel I have made many friends and I look forward to following you in the months and years to come.

I would also like to thank Jenni for a great link up, and for giving me the chance to meet some lovely people that maybe I wouldn't have if it wasn't for this challenge.

Thank you again to each and every one of you for visiting my blog and sticking with me.

Have a great day everyone

  5. Hi Rachel! Thanks for stopping by my blog the other day. Also lovely to know there are more fellow Gatsby fans out there. I so identify with what you wrote above; I too have not blogged on a daily basis so this challenge was a completely new experience for me. I'm happy we have all gone through this experience together. It may that I even will miss the daily topics once its over.

    Hugs Isabel
