Thanks for that, Paula. You've certainly kept in there through thick and thin. I've recently come across a few people who've been discouraged with their blogs. In some cases, their heart really wasn't in it and they were doing it because they thought they should. But it's sad to see those with great content going under the pile because of discouragement.
There are seasons for everything and some authors prefer to engage with readers in other ways, which is fine. However, hopefully a little encouragement will help others (including us) to plug away. I really enjoyed your post. I had already been planning this one, so it seems to be a common theme at the moment. Appreciate your comment :)
