One of the things I have come to love most about WordPress is the meeting of minds, even if only in a virtual setting. I initially set up my blog because I love writing in all its capacities and thought it was an apt way to further my creative output, plus I had only recently published my first book and knew blogging was a good way to meet other people interested in reading and writing. Meet people I most certainly did and I continue to be amazed by how many exciting projects, generous spectators and likeminded writers there are out there willing to support others. There are people whose work I now admire and advice I value.
Take for example, Mel; a fellow writer and blogger whom I found out about here on good old WordPress, who continues to support my writing endeavours. There is also Morgan, a poet and writer whose work I stumbled upon here and have followed ever since, with her debut novel having recently been released. Then there is Mishka, another highly involved member of the blogging community who today has released three books that I can’t wait to read.
I could go on, but at the risk of being here all day naming great bloggers, I will simply close by saying that I truly appreciate the support of people, however small a gesture may seem and hope I can return the favour by continuing to follow your posts and discover your work. It’s a great feeling knowing we are all in this together.
