Posted in Inspirational & Observations from Life, People, Poetry and Prose

An online community

I think I have been blogging with WordPress for over 10 years. In the background of my life. It’s been great, the people I have met along the way. Take for example, Charlotte from The 365 Poetry Project. You can find her blog here:

https://365poetryproject.wordpress.com/

A few years, I stumbled on her site. I don’t know how. That’s the think about the blogging world. Sometimes, you just stumble upon one another.

(Granted. My pet peeve is the spam followers and likers. They don’t care about what you write. They just want traffic to their sites. BUT that will always be. You learn to just filter them out.)

Charlotte’s daily poem inspired me so much that I decided a few years back that I would do a poem series during Lent. Here is where you can find the first one:

Charlotte even send me a poem of her books, once, a few years back. I believe I had won it somehow from her site.

We have never met in person, and we probably won’t meet, unless she visits the UK or I visit the US. But that’s really not the point. I am just impressed by the solidarity in the online world. (There is still some of that)

I got this comment from Charlotte, the other day, saying that she had purchased my book:

I was super chuffed! She ordered my book. I didn’t even ask her to. She just did. How nice! On that note, I wrote a book. You can find it on amazon here:

And you can watch the promo video here:

So, thank you Charlotte. And thank you to the online community. ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Aww this is so sweet! Iโ€™m honored to have inspired you! I was honestly so comforted when I logged back in after a long hiatus to find that people like you were still so welcoming. Glad to have been โ€œblog buddiesโ€ for so long ๐Ÿ™‚
