To some it's not many but to me it's a lot.

As I sit down to write this post I am filled with joy and wonder, Cheerful Thrift Door is fourteen visitors away from having 20,000 visitors. I never thought anyone would read what I had to say.

When I started writing this blog in May of 2011, I never realized that I would meet and become friendly with so many incredible people. In the past eight months, I have had tears of joy because of the birth of new babies to mothers who wrote about their experience before during and after the birth. Proud grandmothers who post photos of the grand kids, weddings, deaths, divorces, graduations, the start of new business, purchase of new or second homes. The list goes on and on, all of these bloggers have inspired me and became people I wanted to visit every day, and read what was happening in their lives, or read an opinion, a book review, recipe, and the DIY tutorials that make me want to learn to be more creative.

While I go down my blog list every morning, I must admit that I am not very good at leaving comments. I always feel my comments aren't witty enough or that someone already said how I felt, but today I realized how much I enjoyed getting comments, watching my readership blossom, and seeing that I have a new follower. You all might start seeing boring comments popping up on your pages, I will try to be witty, but I can't promise anything.

So thank you for taking the time out of your busy day and visiting my blog, leaving me a comment, or becoming a follower. 

Thank you fellow bloggers for taking time out of your day to write your blogs that inspires me in so many different ways.

I believe that I will have a give away real soon. Thanks for stopping by.

PS - I am so thrilled that Blogger has now given us the ability to reply to comments made on our pages. {happy}

  2. I feel much the same as you - I'm amazed by the real sense of friendship and support that has come from blogging, the things I have learned and the inspiration that has come my way. Blog friends have buoyed me up on more than one occasion when I have felt very down, and at times, despairing. I'm thrilled when I receive comments and followers, and whilst I don't get masses of visits either compared to the blogs with hundreds of followers (I'm a little way behind you) I too value all of them.

    1. Although I wish I had many followers and readers, I am very thankful for my faithful blog friends.

  3. My problem is that I lack wittiness and I have always been that way. Some people have a knack for it - just like singing - I love to sing but have a sadly out of tune voice and no wit.
