bloggiversary {300 posts }

{random photo that has nothing specific to do with this post }

today's post marks my bloggiversary!
what's a bloggiversary you ask?
even blogger/blogspot doesn't know—'cause when i typed it,
i got the little red squiggly line under the word.
a bloggiversary is the anniversary
or milestone post for your blog.
for which i did a give-away.

but this time i am not doing a give-away.
i'm just doing a special post in which i will thank
all of my readers, supporters, encouragers, visitors and followers!

wow. wow. wow.
all i can say is thank you for hanging with me
over these last 300 posts
and watching me grow,
sticking with me when i post something
that is a reflection of a tough time i am going through,
sharing in my joy when i write about the good things,
reading my long drawn out stories,
commenting on my photography,
giving me feedback and such generous compliments
on my photos and artistry,
and just plain making me feel like a million bucks!

i want to thank all of you who have followed my blog
in the "others who visit to see what i see" section.
i wish you could all be in my
"others i visit to see what they see" section {or blogroll },
but if you all were, i would never get through my daily reads.

there are also those of you who are not in
the "others who visit..." section,
but i know you still frequently or even daily stop by.
thank you for taking the time to come support my pictures and words.

to those of you in my blog roll,
you have been inspiring me daily for a long time.
thank you.
i feel blessed to have "met" you all.
i feel even more blessed to have grown as a result of you all.

and i just want to say, there are some blogger/blogspot blogs
that i am not able to comment on
because my silly computer won't allow me to.
it's only on blogs where the comment field is set up a certain way.
it's so frustrating, because some of these blogs
are by bloggers who comment here,
but i am not able to reciprocate or return the support verbally.
but know that i still visit if i am following it
or if it is a blog that is in my blogroll.

thank you to my readers who don't even have blogs,
{at least not that i know about }
but still visit and even comment occasionally.
it's nice to know you are here and enjoying my posts.

lastly, thank you for also supporting my other two photo blogs.
the diptych blog with jamie was on hiatus for a while,
but we recently posted there again—yay!

my collaboration blog with my twin sister—ethereal
goes on hiatus from time to time, too.
but we are excited, as we are getting ready
to post our first interview there.
you will not be disappointed, for we are interviewing
an amazing photographer whose work we find ethereal.
{and another regular post will probably be going up today.}

i love photography more every single day.
this blog has been one of the best things that ever happened to me.
i've made some wonderful friends
and even had the opportunity to meet some of them in person.
{you can read more about that here.}
i'm going to be meeting another very soon.
what a thrill and joy.
i'd love to meet you all!

i flippin' love photography and blogging!
can you tell?
i look forward to 300 more,
and then 300 more after that,
and so on . . .

that's it!
thank you. thank you. thank you.
from the bottom of my heart.

and don't forget!
drink your juice.
