When I first started my blog I initially felt as though I was functioning in a vacuum. I would put together my little posts, set them free, then watch as they floated out gently and silently into cyberspace. It was rather like self-consciously talking to myself!
Then Gayle popped up as my first follower. (For quite some time she was my only follower.) I started following her blog as well. I would add my small comments to the many others she received on her lovely posts. And despite the fact that she has hundreds of followers and many other blogs she could choose to look at, Gayle came to visit my blog each week, leaving a friendly message and comment in return.
As a big thank you to Gayle for her early kindness and encouragement, Sharon's Little Sunbeam Week 3 will shine on:
Garden of Daisies
Besides my personal reason's for recommending Gayle's beautiful and creative blog it is well worth visiting in its own right and I hope anyone who sees this post will pop in and say hello.
Past recipients of Sharon's Little Sunbeam Award:
Sharon's Little Sunbeam is my own personal 'no strings attached' award. It is my way of thanking some of the wonderful people who enrich my blogging experience. The recipient is introduced in a post like this one and a link to their blog remains on my sidebar for a week. There are no conditions attached to the award. The recipient does not need to answer any questions, pass the award on or even acknowledge that they have received it. All they need to do is bask in my little sunbeam and enjoy it!
A big thank you also for all the lovely comments and wishes left on my Birthday Thoughts post. I'm glad the other 'April girls' enjoyed the poem and could copy it for themselves.
