Sappy Saturday

I'm closing in on my five year (YEAR!) blogging anniversary (blogiversary?) and so my post today is dedicated to you, the faithful reader.

I know that the cool blogger thing to do is to say that I just write for myself. And to some degree that's true. But not really. If that were the case, I'd make the blog all password protected and secret or I wouldn't blog at all, I'd just keep writing in paper journals. No, I write at least in part because I want to share what's going on in my brain and my heart with you.

And you read it. Which is really pretty amazing to me.

Some of you know me in real life. I love that you stop by. It makes me so happy that even though you probably hear me talk about all of this stuff here and there, you still take time to come by and read it. I find that absolutely ridiculously cool. I am really lucky to have you in my real life. Having you as a part of my online world is just gravy.

And some of you don't know me other than through the interwebs. We met on a message board or Facebook or Twitter or right here on the blog, and you've become a friend. As amazed I am that people I know in real life read my blog, I'm extra amazed that anyone I don't know in real life reads my blog, and make up the bulk of my readership. You stop here, you comment, you interact. I am crazy humbled by that.

There are a couple of people who have been readers here pretty much since the beginning and I want to give them a special shout out. Susan, John, Amy & Tina are four people that I know have been active readers almost since day one (or at least the first time I ever posted a link for people to stop by and read). They've commented and supported through the years. I appreciate all of my readers, but these folks have stuck with me even during the very, very lean times and they have a special place in my heart.

Really, to all of you who read this, whether you've been here since the very beginning or if you've just found your way here for the first time today, thank you so much for reading. Thank you for sharing your own thoughts. Thank you for making this not just a blog, but a community. You're fantastic!

How did you stop by here the first time? And what's your blog or place on the internets? I genuinely love finding new blogs to read, so please leave a link!
