First of all, Happy New Year! I hope that 2018 brings prosperity and fulfilment to you all, whatever you do and wherever you may be.
Now, I just wanted to write a post on the wonderful blogging community that WordPress has helped to create and facilitate. When I began blogging I didn’t really appreciate that the community actually existed, perhaps foolishly thinking that each blogger focused on their website and their website alone, without any real interaction with others.
But as I have gained more experience as a blogger, I have grown to realise the full extent of the support and encouragement that exists online, via the WordPress community and on social media.
During 2017, I managed to connect on Twitter with various bloggers. I found that we shared a number of interests (mainly with regards to books), and through this I was able to participate in more discussions. Before that I was a bit of a social media misfit, so I feel I have finally found my place.
All of the book bloggers and writers and lifestyle bloggers I have connected with all have one thing in common: They are all amazing people who always have interesting things to say, and are always willing to help and support others with inspiring words or positive feedback. Also I must admire the care and dedication that goes into running their blogs, they do a much better job at it than me!
So I just wanted to say thank you to them all. I feel privileged to be a part of their community.
