Celebrating Five Years

Although I only moved to this address about a year and a half ago... five years ago today, "My Quiet Corner" was created.

I remember the days when meme's and awards were a standard post.  I remember when the idea of feeds, stats, SEOs, templates and html weren't even common words used in a post, let alone discussions and "how to's".

I had no idea what to expect from this place. I could not have imagined the road I was to travel, and those of you who would decide to walk it with me. If someone had told me what would transpire... I would not have believed them. It would have seemed impossible.

Yet, five years later, here I am blessed by the presence of each one of you. I hope you find "My Quiet Corner" to be for you what it has become for me. A place to sit and rest a while. A corner to relax and have a moment to reflect. A place of challenge, friendship, support and encouragement.  An opportunity for God's spirit to delve just even a bit further into the depths of heart and soul.

Thanks for coming alongside to challenge me. Thanks for your support and encouragement to lift me when times seemed dark. Thanks for rejoicing with me in the good times, praying with and for me when my heart struggled to find the words to utter, and listening to the many times I would ramble just to sort the jumbled thoughts of my own mind.

"My Quiet Corner" would not be the same without each one of you!! Thanks for the last five great years!
Do tell:  Are you a blogger or just a reader of blogs?  When did you start blogging?  What keeps you coming back to a blog?  What do you enjoy most about blogging?


  1. Happy 5 years! Im so glad you are here, and I am so thankful that I have found your blog. Although I dont visit as often as i should any more, I truly enjoy reading what you share.
    Well, Ive been blogging for about 4 years i think. I dont blog very often at all...never really felt like I had anything good to write..at least nothing someone would want to read. I keep coming back to blogs I like because I find them helpful in my life...like getting advice from a good friend.
    I hope you have a great day and a Happy New Year!

  2. Happy Anniversary !!! I am a blogger as well.. I do love it.. but I did find myself getting obsessed with it.. so I had to get a grip on it.. I was finding myself feeling obligated to visit everyone all the time on my followers list ..but I think now i have reached a happy medium.. I enjoy blogs that have short post.. either a personal post of what is going on in their lives or spiritual.. too long of a post and I find myself just clicking off of it.
    Very glad you have been around for 5 years and hope to still be a blogging buddie 5 years more..
    God Bless

  3. Happy Blogiversary! I remember yours was one of the first blogs I started to read. So nice that the bloggy friendship is still going! :v)

  4. Congratulations!

    I started off reading your blog, and then had to start one too - as you know, it is all your fault! :-)

    It is always nice to read what you write. If it is something familiar to me I find it a quiet restful place, but more often than not, you encourage me to think hard and reach for ever more of God. Thank you dear friend!

  5. I am a blogger as well and I think it's been about 4 years for me. I started out with just a couple a week and now I try to write every day or every couple days....but for awhile it was almost obsessive in that I felt like I "had" to visit everyone else's, and comment, etc. Now I have my list of faves and then ones I enjoy that i visit every couple of weeks....I think this is the first time to yours...found it from Living to Tell the Story (susanne's)


Thank you for taking a moment to stop and chat. I enjoy the presence of you!
