3010 Followers, Thank You!

Before midnight last night, my followers count turned 3000. I was too tired to let you know and give you my big HUGS and THANK YOU. Miriam

Even though I registered my WordPress account in July 2011, I didn’t get into blogging until July 29, 2016. Better later than never!

WordPress sent me the 6-year congrats. But I consider my blogging as ONE YEAR and eight days old.

Within this one year+, the number of posts I have made: 589

Wow! 500 Posts

Wow! I can’t believe it. I have made 500 posts! I started blogging in July 2011. But from July 2011 to September 2014, I did 12 posts and stopped blogging. I came back on July 29, 2016 and have been blogging almost everyday.

500 posts

Basically, I did 500 posts in less than one years. I have many interests – taking photos, writing, gardening, traveling, learning new things such as watercolor and poetry. Blogging is a good place for me to share my experiences with you. I’m grateful that I have made so many friends in this blogging community. Thank you for reading, like, and comment on my posts! You encouragement keep me going!

Thank you

Thank you for Your Support

Dear Friends,

I have been having trouble with my site link.

I made a slight change of the site link. The old link is now Inactive. My Gravatar is under my old username and I CANNOT BE FOUND under my old link or Gravatar.

My OLD link is    https://theshowersofblessing.wordpress.com

My NEW link is    https://theshowerofblessings.wordpress.com

You may click the new link and FOLLOW my new site again, or

A BETTER way to do is copy my old link and paste to your Reader – Blog Followed, when it shows up, click off the green following, it will turn blue – you UNFOLLOW the old link.

To have my new posts come to your Reader – copy and paste my NEW link and paste to your Reader – Blogs Followed, click on the blue Follow and it will turn green and change to Following the NEW link. Then my new posts will come to your Reader.

I spent three days to compile the profiles of the blogger friends who have access to my new link. They are in the following photos. I appreciate several of you contacted me and made the changes.

The blogger friends whose profiles are not in these photos, they couldn’t find me. I will try to contact them to let them know what happened to my link.

I could pay an annual fee for WordPress to redirect my site from the old to the new, but I will try to make my own contact I choose that option. My purpose is for my friends to be connected to my new link instead of being redirected.

Sorry for the trouble. Thank you, Miriam ♥*♥*♥*♥*♥*♥

Thank You, My Friends

My dear friends,

I just want to let you know how much I value your support, your love, and your interest in my family as well as the messages I post on this blog. I enjoy so much receiving your comments and having conversations with you, getting to know you and your life. Thank you for your “Likes” for my posts. It means a lot to me.

I took a four-day trip to visit Mercy and Will and came back on Tuesday May 16. Guess What notification I got from WordPress on Wednesday, May 17, 2017?

I will continue to try my best everyday to check on your posts. Even though I am not able to make comments to every post, I am interested to know how you are doing. I am proud to be in this community with you.

Miriam

I am thankful for this great and supportive WordPress Community. Even though I started my blog in July 2011, I was not sure what I wanted to do with it. From July 2011 to September 2014, I made 12 posts and had one follower.

In July 2016 I decided to make a go again, and I started on July 29. I was somehow ready but still wasn’t sure what to write about. I wrote poems, posted travel photos. Then slowly I participated in challenges. I made friends and had regular dialogues.

I felt more comfortable and wrote more of my personal and family stories. I was overwhelmed by the tremendous interest and support. The post about wishing to live close to my daughter, and the Love Letter I wrote to my daughter became the top posts which received 176 and 162 likes. You touched me by showing how much you care about me and my family.

There are about 20 friends who have been supporting me from the beginning when I returned blogging. You’re still supporting me. I want to show my special appreciation.

I also want to thank all 2010 of you follow and befriend with me during the last NINE months. You become a big part in my life. THANK YOU.

Nomination for the 2017 Bloggers Bash Awards Are Now Alive

ABB-Logo

This is the time of the year for you to nominate your favorite bloggers. The nomination party will be held in London, but the nomination is for every blogger anywhere in the world. If you have not participated before. Please jump in for fun. This is my first time, so I had to do some study about the rules.

Basically there are 9 categories of Bloggers Bash Awards. You may nominate one blogger per category. If you want to nominate more than one blogger, you fill out the form several times.

Nominees receive only one category award. If you are nominated for more than one categories, you will be contacted to choose one of them.

Some bloggers seem not to be able to find the nominees’ email addresses. I’m posting some info from the original hosting blog. I also did a demonstration of where to find info to fill out the form. It’s easy, so please have fun for nomination at Sacha’s blog http://sachablack.co.uk/2017/04/17/nominations-for-the-2017-bloggers-bash-awards-are-now-live/

You’ll see “purchase ticket,” that is for bloggers who are in London and would like to join the party.

Nominations close on May 8th, then the voting will commence soon after!!!
