One of the reasons blogging feels so rewarding is because I know there are real people out there who are reading me. They leave their footprints behind on my page in many ways for which I am grateful.
I feel most grateful to those who comment because they have to read what I wrote a bit more carefully, think about it, organize those thoughts and then write the comment. I value their encouragement and criticism because those thoughts left on my page help me improve.
So when WordPress sent me the annual report for 2013 for bottledworder, I thought I should show my gratitude to all my commenters and especially the five people mentioned on the report.
So here are the Fabulous Five:
Valerie Davies writes beautifully. I love the details of nature she uses on her blog and the touch of romance of far-off places with enchanting details. Her fascinating tips on what she has cooked, which usually comes at the end of every post, are refreshing.
Katie Cross says “I write because I never stopped.” She has eclectic interests ranging from book reviews, author interviews, NaNoWriMo and interesting accounts of her day to day life.
Janna T Writes: Most of the pieces I have read by her have been striking pieces of very short fiction written in response to various writing challenges. Her “About” page is very witty and she also writes poetry.
MrsFringe is a very strong writer and an observer of the world, which in her case happens to be Manhattan, a place where our worlds overlap. Many a time, her comments have hit the mark so well that I’ve had to exclaim “Wow! She got it!” in my mind. She is a very witty critical thinker and writes on a variety of topics.
Bubby Joys and Oys is Miriam’s blog. Miriam is a mother, mother-in-law, grandmother, writer and a music therapist. She has been a long time reader of my blog.
Thank you all who read and comment.
