As I approach my fifth year of blogging, many of you know I’ve had a love/hate relationship with my blog. Derek is especially familiar, since he patiently listens to my whines, “I don’t feel like responding to comments tonight” or “I can’t think of anything to blog about.” But the truth is, I can’t imagine not meeting up with writers, artists and readers from all over the world, a couple of times a month.
When my book launched on March 1st, I was overwhelmed by the support of my blogger and reader friends. For those of you who took the time to read SECOND CHANCE ROMANCE, even though you’ve never picked up a romance novel in your life…thank you. Hopefully, it wasn’t too painful of an experience.
Many wrote reviews on Amazon or Goodreads that left me quite emotional…thank you. And some sent private emails that arrived at just the right moment when my mind swirled with self-doubt. For those who haven’t read my book—no big deal. I’m thankful that you take the time to visit my blog and write entertaining pieces on your own, for me to read.
So, to answer my own question—yes, blogging is worth it. With all of the social media venues out there trying to steal my free writing time, blogging will always be my first choice. The people I’ve met along the way and the relationships I’ve developed go far deeper than a simple Facebook “Like.”
Celebrate this Easter with a heart filled with peace and love.
