I have written a letter to you all, it is as follows;
Dear The Blogging Community…
I know I am a ‘different’ kind of blogger to most of you.
I don’t have shiny pictures..or beautiful props, although I’d love to, but don’t have anything to photograph that fits in with my theme (ideas would be awesome though)
My posts aren’t creative in the same way that some of yours are.
But I wanted to dedicate a post to each and every blogger out there.
It’s an interesting world.. one I am learning about every day.. and one I am falling for more and more!
Before I started a blog (which was around 3/4 months ago now), I didn’t really know what to expect! I knew that I liked writing and the concept of a blog sounded like a good outlet for my many issues, but I had only ever seen the blogs that go viral and millions of people read, I had no idea what kind of community is out there!!
It occurred to me in the beginning that I would possibly be a bit different, and that maybe not many people would be interested in what I had to say.
I would have been fine with this because writing is my own therapy too! But I hoped I would reach some people and help them though fertility issues, mental health and the like, these weren’t even expectations though.
They were hopes and wishes. Ones I wasn’t sure were even realistic!
What I never expected was that some amazing bloggers, some who have nothing to do with fertility or mental health would want to communicate and connect with me, I never expected the love and support that you guys have for each other, I never expected to feel like I was part of something, that a couple of months ago I didn’t even know existed!
So this post is dedicated to you all!
You are AWESOME
Everyone I have spoken to so far, those of you that have actually let me guest post on your own blogs!! And those of you that have let me write articles for your websites/ magazines etc!
I am so grateful for each and every opportunity this is bringing me, and after feeling so alone, lost and without purpose it really has made a huge difference to my life, probably more so than I even realise yet!
I am becoming a new, stronger person who recognises my strengths and weaknesses more than I did. I have a clearer view of who I am and who I have been, and more importantly who I want to be!
And all of this is down to you, the blogging community, because that is what it is, and so much more!
Thank you for welcoming me with open arms, and please know that if any one of you ever want to chat.. I’m only a message away!
I have wanted to post this for a while, but now feels the right time to be super soppy!! (sorry about that)
Much love guys!
