As 2013 draws to a close, I want to express my gratitude to this wonderful wordpress community that I became a part of almost a year and a half ago.

Blogging is such a blast! I have formed important and meaningful friendships with intelligent, creative and interesting people from all over the world! People like you! Now when I travel, I have blogger friends in every country I visit. How cool is this?

I love to read and look at your blogs! They are the bulk of what I read these days and I am a prolific reader. Your blogs move me, crack me up, inform me, sometmes make me cry, and always impress me with your talent and creativity. Books have paled for me now that I am reading such fresh, different, and creative blogs, on a daily basis. Thank you for your posts, I so enjoy reading them.

I am grateful for all the awards you have honored me with. I deeply appreciate the thoughtfulness behind each one. I don’t pass them on because I cannot pick “favorite” blogs from all the blogs I follow. Please know that if I follow you, I think your blog is worthy of every award, and I hereby pass them all on to you, Blog of the Year, and every other one, on down the line. You are awarded each one.

I am so grateful for the  encouragment, support and friendship I receive from so many wonderful bloggers. I would never have continued blogging, if it weren’t for the incredible supportive community I have become a part of here at wordpress. You rock!

I have gotten more serious about my photography hobby because of your steady encouragement. I even entered The Nature Conservancy’s, 2014 Calendar contest because a blogger suggested I should, and I made it to the final round which shocked the beejeezus out of me! I owe this to the encouragement I have received from you!

      • Deal! We are looking at traveling from Auz through the lesser seen parts of the South Pacific returning either to Auz or NZ. Once we know, Pauline will be the first to know. Would love to meet you two~

  9. Cindy, your blog is more than just a blog but a portal. I leave your blog feeling like a traveler (without the jet lag and the packing). Always something joyful, if not educational, that makes a pleasant trip. Thank you always for sharing your wonderful talent! Best wishes in the new year!
