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! ❤
