Thankful Thursday slipped right by me this week, but that doesn’t mean I’m not going to tell you all how thankful I am, because one of the things I am MOST thankful for this week is…
Thank YOU for reading this blog and following along on this little journey of mine. I was overwhelmed by the kindness you all sent my way last week through this blog, Facebook, Twitter, and email. So many of you sent words of encouragement and excitement over my big announcement, and each message meant the world to me.
I’ve written before about people and their behavior on the Internet - specifically about how, in my position, I tend to see people showing their very worst sides from behind the veil of Internet anonymity. When you can count on seeing such open, unchecked hostility as a part of your daily routine, and when that hostility is often aimed at you for no real good reason at all, it can be hard to maintain your faith in the innate goodness of people.
So when I posted the announcement about my new job and the adventure I’m beginning as a real, working writer, I may not have been expecting any hostile comments…but I certainly wasn’t counting on the wonderful outpouring of support and celebration that you guys sent my way.
Thank you so, so much for being such wonderful friends.
