It's official, today is our one year anniversary! I remember that first day like it was yesterday...the promo, the nervousness, the fear of imploding the site. Ahhh, those were the days. Now, it's all cool; I talk to great people, share with no hesitation, bring life to this page every day...er, it's still tough sometimes, though.

Happy Anniversary Women’s Life Link!

It’s official, today is our one year anniversary!  I remember that first day like it was yesterday…the promo, the nervousness, the fear of imploding the site.  Ahhh, those were the days.  Now, it’s all cool; I talk to great people, share with no hesitation, bring life to this page every day…er, it’s still tough sometimes, though.  You bloggy friends know what I’m talking about…the late nights, the writer’s block, the spilled milk that scurries ever so gently under your notebook when you’re in the middle of the best paragraph ever.

What a life we bloggers have, really.  It’s one of the greatest treasures I’ve found in my life.  The satisfying joy I get every time I hit that Publish button didn’t come with just any old job.  It took me awhile to discover this wonderful blog planet we live on, but I’m here now, here to stay.  I’m thankful to every one of you out there, our readers, fellow bloggers, professionals, vendors, family, and contributors.  Women’s Life Link wouldn’t be what it is on this first anniversary without your support.  No, I would have threw in the towel a long time ago.

Well, I don’t have a big giveaway to do today or news that a Hollywood director wants to make my blog into a movie, no publisher beating my door down, but I do have peace and security in knowing that I’ve accomplished something this past year.  I’ve made a difference in someone’s life…hopefully yours.  I would like to share this special poem with you…a tribute to my followers.

The Blogger’s Gift

By Kellie R. Stone

In the middle of the day, I wonder how you are,

And if you saw the gift I left at your door,

It wasn’t too big, long, or wide,

Just perfectly wrapped with nowhere to hide,

I picture you opening the package with care,

Laughing, crying, maybe cursing, if you dare,

Another day you looked between the lines,

And saw my heart, my fears, my foolish sighs,

You believe in me, and I in you,

There’s no lies between us, only the truth,

It’s all for you my beloved friend,

Don’t stay away long for you understand,

I bid you farewell for another day,

Until tomorrow when I, again, come your way.

About Kellie R. Stone

"I make no excuses for my diverse roles as a Rock Your Feminine Type Coach™ and Branding Expert, best-selling author, and crime thriller novelist. Yes, I do still chuckle a bit at the irony. I kick ass as a women’s biz coach by day and kill off vulnerable fiction characters at night. What the hell, it makes for some interesting dreams. I believe that everyone should pursue their passions no matter how out there they seem to be. One of those pure heart-fluttering passions for me has always been writing. Since I did, indeed, chase my dream of being a writer, I've published two non-fiction books in the self-development genre, co-authored an international best seller, and now I'm finally pushing my much-too-old-to-be-in-the-nest novel out the door and into the world. My whole world is empowering and I adore showing others how to live life unfiltered, whether I do that through the written word or my coaching work. I love my job!" ~Kellie R. Stone
