One Year!!

It’s my one year anniversary with wordpress. I can’t believe it. I have been writing pretty much all my life but for the most part kept it a secret. My parents were not in favor of a writing career and really looked down their noses at the whole idea. So, I kept it to myself except for a few friends and family. One day last year I was on facebook and a friend had posted something with wordpress. I followed the link in order to offer support to this friend and liked what he had written. i wanted to further support him so I tried to comment. I was not allowed to until I filled out something which I thought was strange but wanted to be helpful so I filled it out. Done. Or at least I thought. Later I received an email saying “Congratulations on your new blog!” I was really annoyed saying to myself that these fools can’t get anything right 🙂 Sorry wordpress!. Yes, I had to eat crow over that one. In my annoyed state trying to figure out how I was going to get out of this mess, a quiet Voice said, “Carol, you can write your poetry there”! I stopped dead in my tracks and started to entertain that thought for awhile.

I reasoned that no one would see it right so why not? One year later I’ve written over 400 posts and have about that many followers. Modest comparatively yes but I don’t mind. I just love the word play! As Jason Mraz says, “I’m all about the word play”

Thank you all for reading and commenting. I feel you are a community of which I am a grateful member! ❤

I have been writing all my life but for the most part, it has been a secret. My parents did not believe writing was a good way to earn money so I hid my poems. Then one day, I wanted to comment on an essay that a friend had written and found myself with a blog. That quiet whisper inside said, "You can write your poetry and no one will ever know.". I knew nothing of followers and the like at that time. So, here I am trying to learn my craft and enjoying every moment of it. My personal details are, I'm 57, married for 39 years, have one grown son who is God's gift to us and last but not least at all, I'm a Baha'i which basically means that I love all humanity.
