A Tribute & Thank You, Kay
I started blogging a year ago and didn't know the first about it. I simply googled "how-to-make-a-blog", filled in the required information, then I stared curiously at the blank page. What do I do? Oh dear, dear...what? What? Needless to say, it was back to the research drawing board.
After a frustrating start I complained in a post that blogging wasn't going well and I should just quit. My main problem was that I expected twenty comments...on every post I published. Hahaa! Expecting that post to be my last, I resigned myself to the fact that blogging was not for me.
When I returned to delete the blog, I found the biggest surprise. I had a comment. My very first commenter, Kay, left the nicest most heart-warming note. She said that it takes time (I had only been at it a few weeks) and that I should stay with it. She laughingly explained that in the beginning she approached her blogging as "journaling in cyberspace". If nobody read it or commented on it, okay, she blogged for herself.
Oh! Sure! I can do that. That was the beginning of my process of blogging with the knowledge that I was doing it because I want to write...that's it. Kay has been a loyal visitor to and commenter on my blog all this time.
Thank you, Kay. I appreciate your friendship more than I can express.
