My tribe, thank you.

I blew right past my ten year blogging anniversary on June 2. Blogging sure has changed a lot in those ten years, but I'm so grateful for the people in this virtual country that I've come to know in a deep way, people I now consider part of my inner life, even though I might never have embraced you in the flesh. Along the way, some of you stopped blogging; I miss your regularly shared journeys of the heart, though we still sometimes visit in other rooms on these innernets, so we are not lost to each other. Others of you I meet up with in my dreams, I swear it happens, and how strange and wonderful that can be. Even though blogging has fallen out of fashion, the days long past of superstars making millions from clicks and parlaying their blogs into lifestyle TV shows, it still feels like a community here, a tribe of souls in far flung corners who somehow found each other, who hadn't really realized we'd been yearning for a particular kind of connection, until we found it here. Thank you, each one of you, for being part of my tribe.

  1. I am so glad that blogging has fallen out of fashion. It feels more sincere now and I love the bloggers world. I stopped, erased, started again and am happier for it, finding you is such a bonus in this life!

  3. My heart, my heart, to you.
    I dream of us too. Frequently. We are as real as can be. I know the feeling of your hand in mine and that is all there is to it.
    Love you, sweet sister of my heart.

  4. You are definitely one of the bloggers who has enriched my life so very much. Ten years is a long time! I've been reading blogs for about seven years but writing for only two. I wonder where we will all be in another ten years?

  7. Wow! A time for celebration of connection with you! Because I am fairly new to your blog, I am grateful for the function that allows us to visit your posts from the past 10 years and catch up on what we may have missed of your story. The sense of beloved community that has grown between us all through blogging is a treasure. Interesting that you mentioned dreams because I have experienced that, too. Through blogging, we connect on a deep level. Sending love!
