I spend more time reading my fellow bloggers posts than I do writing posts. That’s because my fellow bloggers are good friends, and what they write is important. They are household names. Hubby will often ask, “How’s Pete?” I talk about you as if you are right here, right now. Because you are. I think that speaks volumes. Pete’s post says it best of all. Read on:
When I started writing less than two years ago, I had no clue what I was doing in the blogging world. I had written a memoir/advice book about my teaching career, They Call Me Mom, https://www.amazon.com/They-Call-Mom-Difference-Elementary/dp/1977200052 (something I hadn’t planned to do), and the logical follow-up question was now what?
Someone suggested starting a blog—an idea that had never entered my head. The more I thought about it, the better it sounded. I didn’t create one to become famous or try and sell a lot of books. That’s not a priority for me. I’m someone who enjoys learning. A blog would provide me with opportunities to practice writing. I’m not one of those people who has loved to write his entire life.

i so agree and loved that post from pete –
Thanks for the reblog, Jennie. You know that visiting the Aqua Room is now on my Bucket List. You are a gem and the kind of teacher that any young teacher should have for a mentor.
My pleasure, Pete. When this whole COVID thing is over, maybe we blogging friends can connect. If I get to CA, you’re on my bucket list. The Aqua Roomers would love to meet you. Me, too. 😀
Thanks for the reblog, Jennie. You know that visiting the Aqua Room is now on my Bucket List. You are a gem and the kind of teacher that any young teacher should have for a mentor. I am quite touched that your husband asks about me.😊 My wife (former preschool teacher, director, and college sweetheart) and I will have to take the two of you out to dinner when we make it back east.
Aww… that would be awesome. And, thank you. 😊
The blogging community is really a fine group of people. They make me glad I started blogging (quite a while ago now).
I feel the same way!
This is so true! I talk about my blogger pals as if they were friends I’d met the conventional way! They are so important!
Me, too. I talk about you all the time, Ritu. 💕
And I, you 🥰
Great reblog, Jennie. Pete sums up the simple joy of being part of a wonderful worldwide communtiy of bloggers.
Best wishes, Pete.
Thank you, Pete. Yes, he summed it up perfectly. One day I hope to get to Beetley.
This is a wonderful post and you are such a great friend to share it.
Thank you, Norah. I feel the same way about you. 🥰
Thank you, Jennie. And I you and Pete as well. 💖
You’re welcome, Norah. ❤️
It is amazing how close we bloggers get to each other.
Yes it is. Isn’t it wonderful?
Thank you for sharing Pete’s wonderful posting. Will head over to read it completely. Michael
You will enjoy it!
I had started reading last week, and its amazing.
I agree completely with your outlook on the blogging community and Pete’s. What would we do without each other? 🙂
I think about that often! I often feel closer to my blogging friends than to my ‘live’ friends. Best to you, my friend! 🙂
Absolutely, and i hope that after these years you are still finding it rewarding. Thanks
I am. And thank you.
