Very well said.
When a favorite blogger leaves blogging it can be a sad day. They leave for many reasons including burnout, lack of time and some pass away. You miss seeing their posts and there is a void to be filled. Sometimes that void can be filled with other bloggers while other times you fill the void left behind. Their posts are a window into their hearts and minds, they inform you about them and perhaps yourself. What they said to you mattered because they impacted your life in more ways than one. Friends, know you are appreciated as human beings and that what you have to say matters. Be the best bloggers you can be until you are ready to not blog anymore.
I have seen many bloggers come and go. They were all special, all unique and they made my experience special.
However I always say…Keep on blogging.
