2nd Anniversary with WordPress!

Yesterday I celebrated my 2nd anniversary with WordPress!  How exciting was that – wonderful that WP sent out a notification, because I missed it entirely.

I want to thank everyone for visiting, following, liking and commenting – your visits have meant more to me than what I can adequately express.   For some of you my numbers might seem insignificant, but for me 69,400 views and 558 followers are an achievement for a blog that I wasn’t entirely sold on.

Today I would like to celebrate you and our unique community!  We have the privilege of meeting and communicating with people from all walks of life – there is a lot that separates us from the far corners of the world, to different languages, cultures, interests, politics and individualism.  Yet this simple place we call “blog” has brought us together and fostered many special relationships.  Yes we are a lucky bunch out there.

Thank you for encouraging and supporting my little corner of creativity, I’m humbled to think that what I do is enough for many of you stop what you’re doing and visit.

To WordPress and all the special folks behind the scenes, thank you!

Have a wonderful weekend!  Mary

    Congratulations, Mary. I began this journey into blogging for my students to be able to see what I paint and it has opened a whole other world! It is so much fun to gather ideas from other artists and see what they are doing.
