To the Blogger who Inspired me without Knowing | Day 28/30

To the Blogger who Inspired me without Knowing | Day 28/30

When I committed to posting daily this June, I had this exciting feeling that we would cross paths. It didn’t even take 24 hours to realize this is it. I stumbled on your Day 1 article at #WinterABC and I smiled through reading your commitment.

We would be stuck in each other’s world and words for 30 days straight. I hoped. 

In moments when I was not in the mood to even think about what to write, I would get a ‘new post’ notification from you in the wee hours. You were super committed. 

I would then drink lots of coffee and cross fingers that I would stay awake to finish my post only to find myself in the couch with a few paragraphs.  

You did your part. 

You were the quintessential loyal reader who would share my work and everyone else’s EVERY SINGLE DAY. You took time out of adulting to engage in posts every other day. You are the very essence of community. It was beautiful, heartwarming, a delight to watch. 

Your writings were fun, fearless, authentic and thought-provoking. There’s no single day I didn’t leave with food for thought. Sometimes our shared experiences felt identical. Your approach to prompts was otherworldly. Who wouldn’t be hooked to such intros seriously? How do you do it? 

Beyond words, I looked forward to your graphics and images. They always told a story. Has anyone ever told you how you are such a gifted storyteller? 

From here on out, anyone who quips that blogging is dead gets slapped with a link to your blog.

I hope in many ways you find bits of yourself reading this and know that you’re not alone. Thank you for showing up on short notice and showing out to the fullness of your abilities.

You found yourself a reader for keeps and I will keep your blog notifications on for as long as the Internet serves us. Keep writing. Keep inspiring. 

Now you know…

    You’ve written in so much code today, Lila.

    It reminds me of how Penn (of Penn & Teller) tries to explain how a magic trick was done without giving out too much of how it was actually done.

    Thank you for showing up everyday and blessing us with your words.

      It’s no code. I had plenty of bloggers who inspired me so I decided to put them altogether.
