Whatever it is you're scared of doing, do it."
|Cindy La Ferle|
Before we all head out for New Year's Eve parties, or sit down to list our resolutions, I want to take a moment to thank you for your support and friendship this year.
I left Facebook and Twitter at the end of 2016. Out of sheer laziness, I've stopped using Instagram, too. Some friends still tell me I'm crazy for cutting back on social media use -- and I won't argue with that.
When I started this blog in May, my intention was to create an online journal where I could experiment with my photography and personal writing. I also needed a creative comfort zone -- a place where I could freely express my thoughts and opinions without the worry of boring (or offending) others in a social media feed. If a few friends wanted to stop here for a look, that was fine too.
But I didn't expect to have many followers, and I didn't actively try to solicit a readership. So I'm humbled and surprised to find this site now has nearly 1,000 subscribers, thanks to friends who've shared it with friends and made my little circle wider.
Thank you so much for your kind words, good thoughts, and companionship on the journey. I wish you all a beautiful 2018.
