A LOOK BACK...


For some reason I pulled up my very first post recently,not to reread,I never reread what I've written,but to see when I first posted here! I was kinda surprised to see the people that left me comments there! I knew I had some,but not exactly who~
I posted my very first on June 1st of this year,around eleven pm! the very first hour,
saddletrampsksaddletrampskleft me a really nice comment!and some words of encouragement! Shortly after that came along,
mzhunyholemzhunyholeShe left a really nice and encouraging comment as well!
But then it wasn't over there,next came,
woofffwoofffShe not only left a kind comment but asked a heart felt question!
And my last but not the least, comment came from,
chanda69Who not only left me a nice comment but shared a bit of a story of her life,as it related to my post!
To These Four wonderful Ladies I can't express how grateful I am for this! I might of given up if it weren't for their comments! And all those that followed by everyone I hold dear as well
But that first day,was make or break for me,I really wasn't sure I even wanted to blog! But I was made to feel welcome and that really helped!
Now before this gets to much further I have a purpose for writing this tonight! And that purpose is to get You to maybe see how important it is to remember your very first comments, and what they meant to You! There are many new blogs started everyday,and some are very good, but without an encouraging comment,they might just give up and go away!
So If You ever have the time,visit a few of the new blogs and welcome them here! I do everyday!
Thank You!

When I first started blogging, I had two comments. One was from Flyaway...the person that encouraged me to blog in the first place. I'll never forget that. Now, I try to hit the newbies blogs as often as I can, but it's hard when I have so many people on my watch list!

I'm so glad for the blogs, because that's what brought us together. You've been there for me for a while now, and I can't thank you enough!

Loveme

I don't have a blog myself. I really enjoy reading and responding to them, though. Once again you've shown wfat a caring person you are by encouraging others to encourage others. I'll make the effort to welcome new writers. Helps keep the variety going. Thanks for the invite, happy to come on board.

I forgot to say somethign about the other half of the post S. About
welcoming new writers. Thats such a sweet thought to even have - it would've never occured to me to say it myself.

I tend to believe there is someone out there meant to be welocming some new writer just I did,you. I suppose for me that is how such a variety of people seem to connect...randomly!

Do you know its a bloody miracle we even met?


spunky11961 replies on 8/18/2006 12:56 am:
Yes Woofff I see that it is a miracle! But one that helped me to want to stay here! And that is possiblely why I spend part of each day reading the new blogs looking for those that I can now welcome here!

hey you

Beautiful. I loved your candour from day 1. I have different moods when I write and you can tell by my comment's language that I have
paused everything in my mind. You know why?

Because it bothered me....your words had a peculiar pain in them... like a child's complaint you know?! Something that is tangible and very in the here-now.And of course usually unanswerable!! Kids have that charm about them!!

And before this begins to sound like a eulogy I want to ask:

NOw please tell me what u meant by saying I wouldn't want to see this post? That left me a bit mystified to be honest.


spunky11961 replies on 8/18/2006 12:51 am:
I think I commented that you probablely wouldn't see it! I never meant to imply you wouldn't want to! I Appear and then disappear so often that I didn't think you'd notice except for my eccentric comments! And wouldn't know that I valued your first comment so much!
But Now that you've read this I just want to say Thank You!

I visit new blogs too and encourage them and sometimes visit old blogs and see how far they have come. I started blogging last July but got kinda bored with it and now I am somewhat hooked although I am going to start spending less time on the blogs and more time working on becoming a Blonde Brainy Woman instead of a Big Beautiful Woman.
