Anchor your boat – thank you followers
I took this picture earlier this week on my morning walk and there is just something about it that I LOVE.
Maybe the peace and calm.
Maybe the colors of the boats.
Maybe the fact that it reminded me of this blog and its’ followers.
I can see from the Statitstics, which I hardly ever look at, that over 14 000 people visited it over the past few months….
altbough I don’t know exactly who they are.
Don’t you too wonder – who are the owners of these boats in the picture? Who are they…where did they come from? When will they return?
But important for now – they are all gathered here at the same spot. That is the part I love especially. It was a good, safe place to leave their boats.
And some of you, anchored your boats here, on this blog – long enough to rest and read some posts.
It kind of makes me feel bad that there is sometimes so little going on on the blog, while there are a million things in my head to blog about and make you excited about visiting !
But despite that, there are still new visitors daily or returning followers for whom it is a place to come hang out for a while every week.
On the blog’s facebook page, I do notice every new “boat” that arrive , every new “like”…. except that in those cases I do get a quick glimpse of who the owners are via their profile photos … and it is sort of like seeing the boat owner before he leaves his boat !
A big thank you to the latest followers – naming just the ten latest followers on Facebook – Achala Abeysundera, Nadia Chougui, Doreen Baros, Anne Sutton Fisher, Jennifer Hamlin, Jane Gilheaney Barry, Scott Santee ( I guess that is Lisa 😉 ) , Nicolle Kaspar, Kahori Matsui Roskamp…. and the list goes on and the thank you extend to all 120 people and 30 page- likes before them. Always exciting to see every new face that shows up and give me a stamp of approval by “liking” the page.
Just like the boats look sort of the same and totally different – there is surely a common interest amongst the followers, and yet everyone different in their own right.
This place where you anchored for a while to rest and read… this blog…. is my familiar water….
and I am SO HAPPY for every one that meets me here…
even if the boats are empty and I did not see all the owners before they anchored – I know they have owners….I know you are out there…
One way I can get to know you a little, would be to occassionally leave me a comment.
That way I can get some sense of who you are…. and what you think. Your opinions certainly matter to me.
But if you are just happy to anchor and stay here for a while – I am also perfectly happy about that.
For me – time to start diving under the surface and bring up the jewels I know are down there…so we can share them on shore !!Ilze
