I want to take the time to thank Diedre Eden Coppel.
I also want to let you know where you can find her....
Her Facebook is here.
& her websites:
When I first took up blogging, I started my review/giveaway blog, and couldn't believe how fast it took off and I still can't believe how well it is doing. There isn't a day that goes by (well not very many of them, anyways!!) that I don't get a visit from UPS, FedEx, and have a completely overflowing mailbox thanks to that blog. AND... I also have a post office box, that comes fully loaded many a day with their yellow post cards that kindly tell me that I have packages behind the counter that are too large to fit in my tiny box :) I have two closets that are so full of things that I have received free to review, and that is after giving many things away as gifts. I am very thankful for these things, as they have came in very handy as a struggling single mother. Being a complete book freak and absolutely loving to read, it has been an absolute Godsend that I receive about 5 books a week in the mail (at the very least), and that just so happens to be what I read each week :)
The reason I started this personal blog is because I realized that I liked blogging about other things that were of interest to me. Things that felt close to my heart, things that I happened to be thinking about at that specific time. I didn't ONLY want to blog about reviews and giveaways, and I had started mixing the two together. I don't really think that I lost any followers as far as people removing themselves physically, but I noticed that not as many people were joining my giveaways, so I think that they were probably taking themselves off of my email subscription lists because I was blogging about the personal things.
I have no problem with that, because I know that some people are out there to win things and that is fine with me. Some days I get on the computer just to win things too, but most days, I get on here for real life, and that's when I check in with you all. Maybe I leave comments and maybe I don't. But you can be sure that I'm checking in with your blogs. I know you're when you're all moved into your new houses, I know when your son just had his birthday. I know when you got your new poetry printed in an awesome magazine. I know when that important stuff happens. The stuff that matters to you, matters to me. And I know that you are also reading my blog, and that what matters to me, matters to you. That is what I like about this blog....the comments that I get back from my followers.
Thanks to each and every one of you!!!
