I created my blog site four years ago, and my first post was a written account, illustrated with photos, of why I live in the woods.  As time passed, the blog began more and more to feature photography with short written explanations.  I blog because I love to, and I never thought I would have any blog followers outside of a small circle of friends and family members.

During the past four years, I have been visited by readers from many, many countries around the world.   My top post seems to remain, for reasons I still cannot fathom, Now Blooming in My Corner of North Georgia: Mimosa and Magnolia.

In April 2014,  I added another blog, Believing for Ben, chronicling my little grandson’s journey through pediatric neurosurgery.  Ben was only three years old at the time and now is six and getting ready to begin first grade.  Believing for Ben posts also have appeared on this blog, and members of my blogging community have followed Ben’s progress from diagnosis to the recent announcement that he is cured!

I added a third blog, Captured for a Moment, in October, 2015.  I refer to it as my “photos only” blog with no commentary, just photos.

I am so grateful to everyone who has read my posts and/or followed this blog and my other blogs. Some of you have been with me since I began this journey.  Even though we never have met, you comment on my posts and continually send me words of encouragement.  Blogging has been a much more rewarding experience than I imagined it could be!  Happy anniversary to me!!

  1. When you leave a like or a comment on another blog and an email notification goes out to that author, “Now Blooming….” shows up as the first of three “Great posts worth seeing from Unexpectedincommonhours.” So probably a lot of people click on that to get to your blog, even if they’ve already read that post. For me, I always get a lot of hits on “Mustang Grape Jelly Update” and I can only assume that’s why — there can’t be that many people making mustang grape jelly in this world!

    And congratulations on four years!
