Happy 4 Year Anniversary!

Happy 4 Year Anniversary!4 year WordPress anniversary


This is a short and sweet post to express my gratitude for you being part of my writing, blogging, and self-discovery. Along the way, I’ve discovered new joys, new pains, hidden strength and amazing friends on WordPress. Thank You!

My blog was started just over 4 years ago as an attempt to find peace, joy and new creative expressions. I’ve had a blast writing about topics ranging from compassion, love and peace to inspiring stories with occasional forays into play and silliness. Poetry is the most soulful for me, but I don’t feel inspired to write poetry daily like some of you. Playful posts seem the most refreshing. And I typically write what is real and bubbling inside me, rather than some prescription of what I should write. I believe it’s important that we honor our inner muse and spirit.

Admittedly, I still find it incredibly difficult to know my highest dreams, desires and choices. This is one of my persistent challenges and frustrations, but that is a post for another day. Today, we are celebrating our blogging community. Without your likes, comments and connections, I would not have persisted in this blogging journey. You are the reason I write and continue. Thank You!

4 year blogging anniversaryStats are a fun way to watch the growth of my blog and community. Together, we’ve built over 1007 subscribers, 9593 visitors and 36,422 views. Not bad for something I started 4 years ago on a whim and nudge from a friend. Thank you Eric Huber!

A Parting Muse

for now I must bid adieu.

this day I’m feeling blue

for treasures lost and true

tempered by thoughts of you


you make the days shine

in this stretch of time

your gifts a treasure sublime

for this heart of mine


Thank you my dear readers, writers and friends. May we share the journey with as much love, fun and compassion as possible.

Blessings, Brad

  7. Hello Brad… Congratulations you have done well… and I love it that you allow yourself to post as you feel and not what is expected or right for bloggers or writers to do… Thats what makes a person great and the rest of your life will flow in when you enjoy each moment, holding your highest vision of yourself and life… (Maybe a vision board might help if you feel need) Take care, Love Barbara x

  8. Hello Brad… Congratulations on your great blogging anniversary… and how wonderful it has been to be with you when time has allowed… We are all blooming in our own unique ways, IAM so happy you post when you feel for it and not according to others or what is right…. otherwise we are being so unloving towards ourselves. As for not knowing all of you just yet… continue enjoying each moment of each day and everything will show itself to you in time. Just allow your highest desire to unfold within you… and so it is done.
    Take care, Barbara x
