Followers, love and "fame"...


I generally try and do a "grateful" post every Friday, and link to Maxabella's Grateful linky.



I am going to use this weeks grateful post to also give some other shout outs too.

So, in no particular order, here are a mere selection of the things I find myself very grateful for this week:

1. Followers - whether you count their numbers or not, all bloggers love engagement, and so I am very thankful for all of the followers and return visitors I get.

My first ever follower was a young lady by the name of Melissa. She is a legend. She writes the blog Suger Coat It. She is my blog designer. She is my Skype chick. She recently wrote a brilliant post about women. Go have a read. You will adore her.



2. Encouragement. I had been blogging for a number of years when Sarah over at Just Me, encouraged me to "go public". I am so glad she did. Blogging has become my best and fave online activity. Sarah, on so many levels, you rock. Your quiet kindness in this world does not go unnoticed.

3. "Fame". A Current Affair, for reporting on a story last night with some level of sanity. News it was not, but they represented Mum Bloggers very well. It was my TV debut. In which I talked about speed and vomit. Classy. As my lovely husband said to me, Oprah has nothing to fear. If you missed it, the video clip is here.

4. Love. My lovely husband. Who comes home early, clinking with the sound of a bottle or two of wine, with a grin, to our weekend.

What are YOU grateful for today?

  16. I got a bit excited seeing you and the girls on the TV (watched it online when it was posted).

    I'm glad you're around. I'm grateful for your presense in this Australian Blogging Community. I think you're gentle and kind and level headed and giving and such a calm but fun presence. I can't imagine the AusBlogCom without you,Lucy.

  19. At this moment in time, I'm most thankful for my friends. Hurricane Irene is going to hit us and she's going to hit us hard. My low lying neighborhood has been evacuated and I didn't want to leave to go stay with my parents because it will be so hard to get back. So many friends who are not at such a high risk of flood (we've got about a 99.999% chance, sigh) have extended invitations to ride the storm out with them. They are all wonderfully beautiful people to take the time out for me when they have the same storm to worry about.

    I'll try my hardest to keep my blog posted. www.croquetncocktails.blogspot.com

    Prayers and positive vibes will be appreciated!

  22. I feel a bit silly saying this (and perhaps I should email it, but here I go), but I just got teary seeing the clip. There was my lovely Dim Lucy (!) and she was so gorgeous and smart and British. Sigh. It was marvellous.

  27. I thought you were fantastic on TV! I'm grateful for you. I needed to think of things to be grateful for today. Thank you. x

  28. I'm appreciating blog engagement as well, especially as a fairly new blogger. Your post inspired me to go back and check who my first comment was from. I actually recall it was spam! But I do remember my next real comment was from the lovely Sarah from Ah the Possibilities. I've had a few hundred since and even though my listed following is still very small, I am obviously getting engagement and that's what counts in the end.
