Joining In

WARNING: this is a cut-and-paste job from Fat Dormouse Getting Thinner. If you’ve read it there, you may not want to read it again!

Thanks to Vicki over at 2 Bags Full I’m joining in with this event :

A “Grow-Your-Blog” event – a kind of blog hop, for those of us with only a few followers…Now, I know here at the Wibsite we don’t count “Followers”, and that’s fine. It’s kind of liberating in a way,  but it’s still lovely to have lots of comments and feel that people are engaging with your blog.

When I have the time to visit other people’s blogs, I do try to leave a comment (however banal!) just to show that there is somebody interested – and I am! I love reading people’s views on the world, the little personal stories, (I’m still grining about Auntie Doris’s news however many months after we first heard!) their experiences of God, their photographs. I have laughed, wept, pondered and perused with people from all over the world. I have been lucky enough to win giveaways – a delicious smelling soy candle, some beautiful beads – to be able to share gifts (thank you Pauleen for my lovely Australian goodies!) and give people some of my crafts. I have discovered new music (Oh, Mags, how I love Rend Collective Experiment. Thank you SO much for posting about them!) and rediscovered old. I’ve had the encouragement to think about my faith, through Floss’s “Pause in Lent/Advent…” and to think about how I am part of an amazing electronic community. It was through a new friend at Thistle Cove Farm (found via PomPom) that I read about this event, so thank you to Pompom and to Sandra for the links.

So I’m going to join in with Vicki, and lots of other people in January to take part in this – both here and over at Fat Dormouse Getting Thinner. Maybe you’d like to join in too!

    It’s a good idea! I’ll have a look and see who else is praticipating – thanks for letting us know.

    This sounds like an interesting idea Alison…will be giving it some thought as to whether/how/when I get involved. Thanks also for the mention. I’ve got a lot from blogging and the friendships I’ve made but there are days when I feel a bit overtaken by it all I admit. Plus my main blog is very specific.
