I would like to take some time to say thank you. Last month was my most successful blogging month. When I first started this blog I thought it would be a good way to keep track of my challenges. I didn’t realize at the time that I would love something else about blogging. And that is meeting other bloggers and following them on their own travels in life. I would like to thank all of my followers, new and old, for keeping tabs on my progress and for all of the encouragement. It is so much fun meeting all of you from all over the world and I look forward to getting to know you all more in the future. Checking the blogs I follow each day is one of my highlights. Thanks for brightening my days.
Here is a token of my gratitude. I hope all of you have a beautiful and colorful weekend.
It’s a wonderfully positive and encouraging community isn’t it? I had no idea either, until I started blogging on WordPress, but have been very pleasantly surprised by all the lovely people I’ve met online. Here’s to lots more happy blogging! 🙂
It really is positive. I was very happy to find that out. Sometimes it feels like there is so much negativity in the world and that people just can’t get along. I was pleased to find such a wonderful group of people who are willing to share parts of their lives and to provide me with encouragement and positive thinking. Gives me hope. And yes, here’s to more happy blogging!
I totally agree with you!!! My “imaginary friends” are VERY real to me and it is the support that I have gotten through blogging and the love that others have shown me on my blog that make me smile. I love the community!!! And I love your blog!!! 🙂
Thanks! It is a great community and I enjoy my “imaginary friendships.” It does bring happiness into my life and it is a lot of fun. Keep up Teapot Tuesdays!
This has been a surprise to me, too. I started my blog to improve my writing voice, but the challenge of writing daily has brought other rewards as well. Thanks for sharing.
It is a rewarding experience. And I get to meet lovely people like you. Thanks for sharing your stories.
IM STARTING MY BLOGGING JOURNEY JUST LAST WEEK , I HOPE I WILL BE AS SUCCESSFUL LIKE YOU. CONGRATULATIONS!

You are so nice dear TBM, to be honest at the beginning of my blogging life, I didn’t expect something and everyday I become more rich with all of you. I should say my Thanks to you too, because how nice to follow you, to watch your photographs, to read your books and reviews, everything makes me more rich with you all. You are welcome and million Thanks… How beautiful these flowers… Have a nice and enjoyable weekend, with my love, nia
Thanks Nia. I didn’t know what to expect either when I started. Your pictures bring me much joy each day, especially the cat ones. I love cats. And I love seeing your part of the world. It is fun and this experience has taught me that it is a much smaller world than I thought. And it is wonderful to have friends from all over the world. Thanks!
I agree with you. I have only been blogging a little over two months and I love the people I have met. I so enjoy your blog and look forward to sharing more with you.

Thanks so much! I really enjoy both of yours. Not only do I learn news things, I get to see beautiful artwork. Thanks!
Thank YOU for sharing your wonderful photographs. I love to travel and take photos too – though my destinations are not as far flung as yours. You might just inspire me to share a few of my own adventures over at my place.
That is really nice of you to say. I would love to be an inspiration. I wish you many happy travels, no matter how far they are.
They say you get what you give…in this case…I think THEY have a point.
Thanks Jo…you always are so kind. And I love your witty posts. You make me laugh each day.
Don’t you feel like we are just one big happy family?! I never expected to get so much out of blogging either. I just started it for, as my kids would say, shits and giggles and never thought I would keep it up this long. I have been so pleasantly surprised by the support and encouragement of other bloggers. I’ll tell you, I’m sure glad that I found your blog TBM because I look forward to it every day. Your blog is interesting, funny, beautiful, etc., etc. Thank you for being my blogger friend!!
Awe! And thank you for being a blogging friend. It is like one big happy family. And everyone has made my transition to a new country so much easier with all of their support and tips. Thanks so much for your blog as well. One of these days I’ll figure out the mystery photo all on my own!
So pretty! 🙂
Yes isn’t it amazing how we become virtual friends. And because we often follow the details of virtual friends’ lives on a daily or weekly basis, we get to know each other pretty well.
It is amazing. I never thought I would, but now I love it. It is a great way to make friends all over the world and to learn about others.
Aww thanks, the flowers are beautiful 🙂 Your blog is so versatile and enjoyable! 🙂 Thank you for following my blogs 😀
And I have learned a lot from your blogs. You have given me valuable tips about my new home and useful home remedies. Thanks so much Kristina.
That is so nice of you! Lovely flowers!
And I would like to thank you for commenting on and liking so many of my posts. 🙂
Thanks! And you have encouraged me to start reading Agatha Christie!
The flower is wonderful. I’ve also found similar experience in blogging. Wonderful people out there! 🙂
There are so many nice bloggers out there, including you!
Thanks to you too!!! Lovely picture as well. I can only agree- blogging is fun and satisfies on an unexpected level. 🙂
Thanks Zelmare. I’ve been enjoying your new blog. It is so cool that you and your daughter both have blogs now.
Thank you! Yes, I also think it’s special. 🙂
I am pretty new around here but I feel the positive vibes! Didn’t expect to enjoy blogging so much!
Thanks for a lovely post
It is fun and a great way to connect with so many people. I’m glad I found your blog. You have amazing content.
So glad to connect with you and your fabulous blog…original and beautiful, it is.
Thanks so much. I love the connections I’ve made!
I’m delighted to have met you and just wanted to pop in to wish you much luck as you jeep exploring the world through camera, film and book. 🙂
Thanks Jillian. I love reading your blog since we have similar reading tastes. It is fun exploring Dickens and checking in on your blog and seeing what you think about him. I wish you luck!
It has been a pleasure and I’m looking forward to spending more time with you here, and around teh interwebs, for the rest of 2012. Until the world ends, that is. 😉
Yes I keep forgetting about that part of 2012…such a bummer. Hopefully we make it to R.I.P.
