5 Lots Of Thanks

A short post with lots of thanks to:

1. Everyone who donated to MAD About Art on the back of the Powerful Writing 30 Words Or Less project.  We raised £25/$50 from the project which I've sent on to them today.  Thanks also to those of you who mentioned the charity on your own blogs - it's a great way to help spread the word about this worthwhile cause.

2. Those of you who took part in the survey on the main focus of your writing.  We've had 51 entries so far, and it's not too late if you want to take part.  I'll be posting the results in the second half of next week.

3. All the contributions to the conversation on what a blog means to you.  Lots of great definitions and descriptions of your blogging purpose.  Again I'm planning a round up post with highlights some time next week

4. Those of you who commented on How To Plan A Month's Worth Of Blog Posts In 30 Minutes Flat. I think at 21 comments (x2, with my replies) this is my most commented post so far... but it's not easy to tell with Typepad (I know, I know, I hear you WordPress folk...)

5. Everyone in the Photography Less Ordinary group on Flickr, supported by Amy Palko from Lives Less Ordinary.  I've been stretching & testing my own photography this week with encouragement and feedback from participants - thanks everyone for your support.  If you'd like to view the results from the group so far have a look at this photo pool (for extra oomph try viewing with Piclens).

And thanks to all of you for reading, visiting, stumbling, bookmarking, tweeting, connecting and helping me to write, and smile, and create this week.

Oh, Joanna, you are most welcome :-)

There's something about saying thank you that just feels so good, isn't there? For my part, I'd like to say thank you to you for...
1) your support & encouragement whenever I have another madcap idea
2) our laughter and conversation on those occasions when we manage to meet up
3) introducing me to Skype!
4) sharing your amazing perspective, both in words and in images
5) your friendship, which has come to mean so much to me in such a short period of time.

Thank you, Joanna.

Amy, thank you for such a lovely comment. This is one I'm going to save and treasure :-)


I would like to play too! :) Thank you for:

1) Your incredible friendship
2) Teaching me how to come boldly to the page and find my own voice.
3) Being an ambassador for the blogging community. Your support, and encouragement extends throughout blogoland and you truly promote and represent the community well.
4) Great writing, month after month
5) Sharing your grateful, fun energy everywhere you go!

Aw Karen, what can I say. Only a simple, heart felt thank you.
