When I started writing My Sardinian Life I had no set goals in mind. I hadn’t planned that my little blog could bring sunshine to the many colourful pockets in our world. I didn’t expect the positive comments of encouragement. I didn’t really expect anyone to comment at all! These were just my thoughts and daily life in Sardinia, Italy who would be interested in that?
I continued to post, comment and discover other travel blogs. I found new destinations and people, and put them on my bucket list. The list is now, virtually endless.
I am grateful to have met another blogger who has supported my writing pretty much from the start. How the world brought us together, or why, I will probably never know. I’m just happy it did.
Allow me to introduce you to Debra from Bagni di Lucca, Italy via Brisbane, Australia.
Along with her friend Liz, they write a travel information blog on ‘Bagni di Lucca, Brisbane and everything in between‘. They belive Lucca is the ‘loveliest town in Italy‘. I’m totally intrigued and am looking forward to a Bagni di Lucca visit.
Debra first left a comment on my blog on November 6, 2011. It was on a few books I’d been reading at the time: The Dark Heart of Italy and The Italians. Both fantastic reads for a decent understanding into the Italian way of life.
And since then Debra has been a force of positive energy and support. I would log into my WordPress account and see a wonderful comment left by her and I knew in my heart that I was finally doing what I’d always wanted to do, write.
Here’s a few more of the great comments Debra has left:
Blogging is a fantastic way to tell the world what you are thinking. It’s also a wonderful way to meet new and exciting people, to learn from them, and maybe even visit their home destination.
And then she left me this comment:
If I hadn’t started writing My Sardinian Life eighteen months ago, I would not have met this wonderful woman and I would never know about lovely Bagni di Lucca.
Thank you Debra for your continued support. I look forward to the moment when we can meet again.
How do you spread the blog love?
