Wow! A few days ago, WordPress saw fit to honour me with Freshly Pressing a piece I wrote on the passing of Robin Williams, and the role social media played in terms of grieving. (https://thinkdreamdo.wordpress.com/2014/08/13/social-media-as-grief-counsellor-r-i-p-robin-williams/) I didn’t exactly know what this meant until my inbox started to explode with likes, new followers, and re-blogs. Up to this point, my blog has pretty much flown under the radar, but in less than 24 hours after my post got “Pressed”, my followers have more than doubled.
To the thoughtful people who wrote such very kind words about the post and my writing, I thank you. I am humbled.
To those of you who are new to this blog, welcome and thank you! I hope you will continue to enjoy the writing you find here.
To those of you who have been loyal from pretty much the very beginning (that’s you, Maria) I thank you for believing in me and supporting me along this journey.
I’m beginning to sound like I’m at an awards show or something, so I’ll end here.
Now if only someone could convince my mom that my blog is worth following . . .
