A Blogging Thank You!!


I am so glad to be this thing called a "blogger." It has been such a blessing in my life. I have made friends I see in person and friends who have sent me e-mails and messages that I have enjoyed receiving. Cards in the mail and phone calls from other bloggers helping me to spiff up my blog. I want to whole heartily say thank you.

Finding others interested in the same pursuits has widened my horizons and educated me. All from the comfort of home which is my favorite place to be. I saw that I was inching up on a 1000 followers as New Years approached and when I clicked on New Year's day I had passed that mark. Many have moved on from blogger and it doesn't really mean you have a 1000 followers but it made me smile. So thank you if you ever clicked that little button.

I have been blessed by those that have added me to their side bars. I am visual person and love scrolling down the blog lists of other bloggers to see where I want to click that day. I try to add those who have added me to my side bar list. If I have not added you then let me know and I will work on getting you on there. The kindness of others doing that for me has sent me so many nice folks who I would not have heard from otherwise.

I wish I could comment on every post I read. I just find I am on for a bit here and there as life calls us to what is really important, our homes and family. I hope I have been able to be a small part of your blogging life as well. And for the non bloggers that take the time to send me e-mails, you are very dear and sweet to take such time. Again, thank you from Elaine (me) at Sunny Simple Life. And it is sunny today. I am about to head out and let the chickens out. Good day everyone!

I have really enjoyed your blog and your sunny simple attitude. :) Having blog buttons and listing blogs that we follow is important, I think. It helps us find like minded people.

What a great milestone for you. Congratulations!, reading blog posts is one of my favorite ways to start my day as I drink my coffee waiting for my body to wake up. I, too, love to scroll thru the blog lists of some of my favorite bloggers and, sometimes, finding a new one to follow. And that's how I found you!! :). I'm so glad I did.

:D Enjoy your sunny day today. There isn't a cloud in the sky here, but it's COLD!

Congrats on having over 1,000 followers. That's fantastic! I think when I first started reading your blog you had around 300 followers.

I have loved getting to know you Elaine! I don't mind not having comments on every post, I have found it impossible to comment on every post of all the wonderful people I have met through blogging, I just have to hope they understand. It really is a blessing to share so much with like minded people, thanks for your beautiful posts!

Elaine, this is beautifully said. I feel the same. Blogging has offered me the opportunity to connect with others who share an interest in many of the things I'm passionate about. I'm not to 1000 followers yet, but am amazed that I even have a following. I recently lost my entire list of blog links on my sidebar. I'm slowly recreating it, but you are there. ;-)
