First of all, I’d like to take this opportunity to THANK YOU all for reading this blog. I am deeply honored and humbled by your support and continued enthusiasm for my writing. Truly. Thank you.
As you know, Brookside Buzz was originally intended to be a way to communicate about my breast cancer diagnosis and treatment directly with family and friends. A year later, and gazillions of Silver Linings later, I’ve witnessed the growth of the blog into a place I could never have imagined. Come to think of it, a year ago, I barely knew what a blog was!
The blog is one of the (many!) Silver Linings to have come out of FBC. Many of you have encouraged me to continue to writing. (Thank you for that, by the way!) I am happy to say that if you all will keep reading, then I will certainly keep writing.
It has been suggested to me that (much as I did at mile 11 in the 1/2 Marathon) I kick things up a notch.
So, it is with great anticipation and excitement that I announce that big changes are on the Silver Lined horizon. In fact, I’m smack dab in the middle of redesigning the blog. To call me thrilled would truly be an understatement. In fact, I’m simply giddy!
Don’t worry. The blog will still be all me. My voice. My writing. My (occasional!) sarcasm. My musings. The blog will stay true to my style, life goals and of course, cancer treatments.
Another exciting feature is the creation of a community wherein people can share their own stories. I have been buoyed by the experiences of others and I am hopeful that by creating a forum in which people can share their own experiences, we can create a community of support and, of course, Silver Linings.
As I am still in the planning phase, I would love to hear from you. What would you like to see? What do you enjoy? How can I improve the blog? Any thoughts or input? I’d love to hear from you!
In the meantime, thank you all, again & again & again for your continued support! I really feel like I cannot say Thank You enough!
Until the unveiling, I’ll be at Brookside Buzz, per the usual.
