In honor of the Blog-o-versary of “Romancing the Genres”, I will be giving away two pieces of jewelry to two different commenters.  The rule is: as long as you leave a comment, you will be in the drawing.

I think back a year ago to the first Blog post I did, and baby I’ve come a long ways!

When Judith and Sarah, Blog Queens Extraordinaire, asked me to be a part of the baby blog they were giving birth to, I knew nothing about blogging.  I had never been to a blog, I had never commented on a blog and it seemed like a difficult thing for a relatively shy person to be involved with.

Me?  Put my thoughts, ideas and words on a blog that the entire cyber world could check out?  Could comment on?  With a push from my sister I did just that, I became an original member of the “Romancing the Genres” blog.

And I haven’t looked back or regretted joining “Romancing the Genres” blog.  I’ve learned so much about not only the process of blogging, but also, about myself, my commenters and my fellow writers, many whom I’ve yet to meet.
This is the perfect way for a shy person to enter the cyber world and have her/his voice heard.

I know from our number counter that many, many more visitors check out our blog than leave a comment.  If you enjoy our blog, tell us what subjects you’d like us to cover in future posts and if you are a lurker, why don’t you comment on the blog?  Do you comment on any blog ever?

Come on don’t be shy!  You could win a wonderful piece of jewelry!!

Hi Diana,

I wasn't very far behind you when it came to experience in blogging. Not sure I'm as shy as you say you are but I know how technologically challenged I was at the time.

It really is hard to believe it's been year and we are nearing 23,000visits (we're sure we'll easily make that this month, maybe even by Monday!).

Because I'm thankful we have people checking us out, I'm doing more visits on other blogs, following (sort of) blog tours, etc. If I'm going to visit and read, I figure I might as well leave a comment.

I'm very interested in reading the comments left here. I'm sure there will be a jewel of an idea or two by the end of the day.

I hope you are right Judith! I find I learn something new from each blog post I read. Thanks for commenting! I always enjoy reading your comments.

Diana, You always have great posts! Sorry I'm late and I'm headed out the door too much going on with my blog tour and now heading for an anniversary get-a-way of my own.

Hi Diana,
Great blog, love your posts. I am starting to get a handle on this blogging business now too. I was hopeless in the beginning.
It has been a real learning curve for me.

Margaret Glad to know I wasn't the only one who was hopeless in the beginning. thanks for stopping by, Ladies!

Sarah Raplee said...

I'll post this on Facebook to spread the word! The jewelery you make is so beautiful!

You should be proud of the fact that you wrote the post that got the most hits all year!

I don't always take the time to comment but I do try to send folks your way in hopes that your subscriber numbers will continue to grow.
I continue to learn from you and hope to someday have a beautiful blog of my very own.
