YES, YES, YES – 2,500+ times yes!


In a world of my own making – imagination, (where as you know all sorts of wonderful thoughts can happen) less than a year ago I began to seriously blog and along the way …

I discovered YOU!

Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Almost 50,000 visits in a little over 10 months, 2,500+ followers and most importantly – new friends, many new lovely, wonderful and talented friends!


In my imagination this is us celebrating as we come together in our blogging community to share with one another!


You have no idea how lucky I feel to know all of you. To read your amazing posts, sharing brilliantly constructed storys, viewing beautiful photography, videos, and illustrations, revealing important information, baring your soul, inspiring and promoting love and positivity, and being your own creative selves in the process!

I am blessed and I thank you with all the love that I am capable of sharing. At a time when I was recovering from a (several years) series of personal tragedies, I began writing and there you were to cheer me up, to encourage and lighten the heaviness in my heart and desperate longing – to be with, a part of – something special. Something larger than my own small concerns and woes.

You have accomplished all this and so much more.

Thank you again for sharing your many gifts of love, grace, humor, and talent.

Thank you for caring, thank you for giving, and mostly

thank you for being you!

…YES, some days the cup does run over!

And because I do want to leave ’em laughing I’ll end my yes post with the most amazing series of YES’s ever! Enjoy:

I am going to have to come over there soon to Greece and hang out for awhile, well … nearby anyway, so you can show me the wonderful country you call home!

    What brilliant numbers. I love your writing and can see why so many others do to. Blogging has done more for me than therapy has! πŸ™‚
    We all have real lives and get busy, but blogging becomes a part that. Your either a blogger or your not! And you dear Penny are a blogger and I’m so very happy for that. Love to you…..Paula xxxxx

    • Thank you Paula for the wonderful compliment! I agree blogging is the best form of therapy there can be! Love received and sending my own back to you with sincere thanks, Penny xo

  9. Reblogged this on Alastair's Blog and commented:
    50,000 visits
    A published book
    If you haven’t visited Penny yet, go … you will not be disappointed. There is a reason she has so many follow her.

  10. WOW! That is a brilliant set of numbers. You may have discovered us, but more importantly, we discovered you. You are an inspiration to everything to see and touch. With each post you fill us with hope. With each quote you fill us with love. With each song you fill us with fun. With each poem you fill us with knowledge. I for one, would never have done some of the things I have done with out your inspiration.

    You are a wonderful blogger and an even nicer person Penny. It is an honour to know you.


Thank you for your thoughts!
