#IWSG February 3 question - Blogging is often more than just sharing stories. It’s often the start of special friendships and relationships. Have you made any friends through the blogosphere?
Yes is the short answer to the question.
I've made several friends through blogging who have become personal supporters as well as encouraging me on my writing journey.
I struggled through Cancer as well as the Covid right at the end of my radiation treatment. I'd been diagnosed with pre-Cancer in 2015 so the news wasn't as life-altering as it might have been. What was life-altering was the same thing the whole world had to adjust to: the Global Pandemic of Co-Vid 19.
And through it all was the love, support and prayers of the friends I made through Blogging. They've become as much a part of my life as my family and childhood friends.
Added to this list are the doctors, nurses and support personnel who walked with me on this particular journey. A huge shoutout to those who got excited when they found out I was writing books. A couple even had suggestions for local marketing. So yeah, this was a big boost to my morale and encouraged me to pick up where I left off in December 2019.
Have a few things I have to adjust too which are affecting my ability to type and hand write. So, have to use dictation. I'd bought Dragon Naturally Speaking for my father when he'd begun to lose his sight. So, right now the current plans are to use Google Docs Voice Typing to get the first books finished and earn enough to buy The Dragon as I need more than just what Google offers. And get my stuff up on Ko-fi site: link in sidebar.
