Today marks my one-year anniversary of blogging.
I started this blog to chart my journey to simplicity and the lessons learned on the way. I have read a lot about minimalism over the past couple of years and I don’t think I ever say anything too original or ground-breaking. But it is a true account of my experience – a very ordinary person, making small changes, to try and live more meaningfully.
I write every week about the tiny steps I take, how something has affected me, or given me pause for thought.
But today, on this blogging anniversary, I don’t want to write about me!
I want to write about you!
Thank you 😊
Thanks to each and every one of you who pause throughout your day to read my little blog, who take the time to press the ‘like’ button and most of all, to those who comment. Connection is one of the things I love best about blogging and I still get a thrill when I see a comment come through.
A special thank you to those who subscribe by e-mail – I know it’s not as easy and that you have to make more of an effort.
I notice and appreciate every single subscriber I have and always try and visit your site too – that’s one of the best things about getting a new subscriber – it alerts me to a blog I may not have heard of before and it’s wonderful to find another perspective. I am inspired by your blogs and thoughts and outlook on life.
Best of all are the ‘frequent flyers’! The familiar photos and icons that pop up – it’s like connecting with old friends. It never worries me that I haven’t met you in person – we either share a common perspective or you give me food for thought about a different aspect of life.
I’m not very active on social media, besides an odd tweet here or there. Others have said to me, that I must be on more platforms if I want to ‘get my numbers up’. My subscriber number is minimal – just how I like it! But I value each one of you. I like to think you have found my blog because it adds a tiny bit of value or entertainment and that’s just fine with me.
I hope to continue my journey to simplicity and would love your company on the way. Have a great week 😊
