To My Readers...

Dear Fellow Bloggers, Readers and Lurkers (I know you're out there),

I wanted to compose a letter and express my heartfelt appreciation to you for reading my blog, leaving all of your lovely, sweet and encouraging comments and for spicing up everyday for me by allowing me to glimpse into your thoughts and lives. You truly make those slow days at work much more interesting and time consuming for me. I believe that I have developed a slight addiction that is ever increasing! Do they have a BA (Bloggers Anonymous) group? What is it about blogging that sucks you in? Perhaps the peek into other's worlds is quite invigorating and it's rather fun to be nosey ;). I'm certain that most of my readers have never actually met me in real life and vice versa. However, I feel I share some sort of bond with you because I let you in on all of my heartfelt desires, struggles, highs and lows in life and I trust that you care to take into consideration my feelings. I have shared some very personal things with you and it has been an ideal way to vent and clear my head. I'll have you know, I am a generally introverted person when it comes to my heart, feelings and dreams. I am a talker for certain but I have always seemed to guard my true heart and soul for fear of what others might think or say. I admit, I am a sensitive individual and I take things on a personal level most of the time but I'll have you know, I am getting so much better with this! I am positive that my job has benefited me in various ways with that being one of them.

The point of this letter is to simply thank you all for being so kind and for faithfully reading- you give me reason to keep writing! I just wanted to give a shout out to you and let you know that I appreciate your insight, input, opinions, and sweet comments! Also to encourage you to keep writing, not only because it gives me something interesting and fun to do during the day but also because you're great at it and your lives are so enriching and interesting to read about! Mitzy, Leah, Jessica, Elizabeth, Sarah, Andrea, Amber (A girl who happens to share the exact same name and uncommon middle name with me!), Leah-Maria, Candi aka Ophelia, Danya, Allison, and Natalie. You're all amazingly talented and gifted individuals who have so much to offer through your writing, dreams, desires and hearts. I am often inspired, amused and heartbroken as I read your posts and either read about your accomplishments, hilarious stories, talents, advice, practical ideas, dreams, desires, battles, faith and opinions or witness your transparency through the heartache and tragedy you have undergone. I often find myself either laughing, smiling, deep in thought or in tears as I read your blogs and get to see your hearts and thoughts. I consider it an honor.

New readers, welcome to my blog! I hope that you will find truth, inspiration and humor as you read about my journey through this life and I let you have a glimpse into my thoughts! My mind tends to be crazy busy as thoughts race through it constantly and I am doing my best to keep track of them by blogging. It really is a great outlet. So, I hope you enjoy what you read and please make me aware as I will most definitely read yours!

So with that said, keep writing, sharing and being real. You never know the impact you may have on someone's life, even through a silly blog. I appreciate your time and I appreciate your thoughts. God bless you all!

Much Love,
Amber Denae

P.S. To all you lurkers out there, come into the light! ;)

I'm pretty new to this blogging thing, but I love the insight into others lives. It makes you realize that you aren't the only one out there experiencing life - good and bad.

I've enjoyed reading your blog over the past few days, and look forward to more. :)

Mitzy said...

Hi Amber~
I totaly agree with andrea.. I keep coming back to your blog everyday because you always have something special and uplifting to say, that not only brightens my day, but encourages me as well!

You are a gifted writer, and I look forward to buying one of your books in the future! ;-)...( yes, I said "buying".. you need to write a book of encouranging poems and stories girl.. you are great at it!!!..

p.s.. Thanks for always leaving me sweet comments on my blog as well!.. my main goal with my blog to to give people a little peak into my world, and to be "real" with everyone, in hopes of helping someone!

Many Hugs!

I am a blogger now!!

Leah said...

Aww! How sweet!
I have to re-iterate what some of the other comments have said. I keep coming back because of the honesty and insight in your posts. You aren't afraid to say what you feel, which is very refreshing. (And I like to read a lot of the other blogs you posted, so I guess we are all in this blogging world together)

Have a fabulous day!

Elizabeth said...

Aww, this was a great post :)
Like everyone else, I really love reading your stuff too. From the first day I read one of your posts on here you had me really crackin' up! haha.
Of course I love reading the non-humorous stuff too, it's very inspiring at times. I love all the things you have to say about God and how He's impacting your life, your family, friends etc. I can never read enough about the things of God!
I seriously hope you never tire of blogging.. a lot of people would really be missing out if you did!

Thanks for reading our blogs too... Your comments/thoughts really do mean a lot to us! :)
