It’s been a week since the Circle of Moms Top 25 Canadian Mom Blogs voting closed and ever since then I have wanted to dedicate a post to properly saying “Thank You” to you, my community of readers.
You may be thinking that I already had my original “thank you” post, but the truth is I was slightly overwhelmed and all I could do was express my sincere gratitude for all of your support.
Today I’d like to properly thank you – not just for voting but for all the ways in which you have shown me support since I launched montrealmom.com:
Thanks for letting me know when you notice a typo, error or something has gone wrong on the site. Some of you weren’t sure if I wanted you to tell me. Of course I do! It’s difficult to stay on top of 500 pages, so when I don’t know that something’s off, it helps for to be told. Taking your time to let me know shows me how much you care about the site (and/or me).
Thanks for the feedback via email, comments & Facebook messages and tweets. For those of you who were in my circles before montrealmom.com, your continued support means so much. For those who have connected with me because of montrealmom.com, the knowledge that I have reached you reinforces my belief in what I have set out to do.
Thank you for your understanding. Perhaps the best thing about having a community of moms as your readers is that no one understands better than another mom that if a blog post or update is late (or even skipped, on occasion) it’s possibly due to the trials & tribulations of balancing work, family & household.
Thanks for being up with me late at night. Whether you’re tweeting or messaging me that I should get to sleep or you’re on Facebook chat asking me if I think your water broke (you know who you are) 😉 , I never feel like I’m working alone. I appreciate the company.
Thank you for inspiring me. Some of you have messaged me, in some form or another about how I inspired you. Let me come right out and tell you that life as a mompreneur is both extremely rewarding and extremely challenging. Like many entrepreneurs, I have had my “moments”. When I have those moments, I look up at some of YOUR messages that are taped to the wall behind my computer and YOU INSPIRE ME to keep going. I can’t thank you enough.
Thank you for sharing of yourself. Whether by commenting either through the blog, Facebook, Twitter, email, phone or face-to-face, your thoughts are valuable and often give me pause and inspiration.
Thank you for sharing my content. By sharing my blog & Facebook posts, links and tweets within your circles, you have helped to spread the word about montrealmom.com, bringing it to where it is today.
I created this website to share with you, but by passing along what I have shared, you have created a community of readers. Sharing is where it’s at and that’s why I hope that you all know that whether by comments, votes, retweets, ‘likes’ or constructive criticism, each one of you is in part responsible for the success of montrealmom.com.
For this reason I want to share that success with you, the community of montrealmom.com. Yes, montrealmom.com just came in 1st place in the Circle of Moms Top 25 Canadian Mom Blogs, but the honest-to-goodness truth is that I couldn’t have done it without you.
Those of you who know me personally know that I often think I can do anything. The thing is, at this point I actually know that I have no way of identifying the thousands of you who have visited and shared within your circles since launch. I hope that you will accept this as my personal Thank You.
…and PLEASE continue! 😉
With the deepest appreciation for your support I wish you a fabulous afternoon,
PS..and in the spirit of giving thanks, I’d like to wish all of my US readers a Happy Thanksgiving 🙂
