Karen, thanks for stopping by my blog and following. I enjoyed reading your Dear Writer post. Karen W. (sugareeblog)
Thanks, Karen. I’m looking forward to reading more of your posts.
Thanks Karen for stopping by and liking one of my Friday Fictioneer posts. I enjoyed your koi post!
Thanks, Jim. You’re always welcome to visit.
Thanks for stopping by my little blog.
Interesting titles on the shelf. Read one or two, recognise some, don’t know others.
It’s always interesting to see what people have on their shelves. It’s a little window into who they are.
Karen, I’ve just spent the last few weeks reading your entire blog from latest to earliest. Really enjoyed it and looking forward to future posts! I like how your posts give me ‘a-ha! moments’ and make me think differently about things I previously just assumed. Also love the Friday Fictioneers. Your blog has a definite purpose and role in the online world, something I’m hoping to work out this year with my own blog. Keep the posts coming!
Hi Jessie. You can’t know how very thrilled I was to read your comments! Thank you for them. It has taken a while, and some experimentation, to find the purpose and role for my blog. I’m surprised by how much I’ve enjoyed sharing the things I discover about writing, and learning from other writers like you who share my love of putting words together. I’m following your blog with pleasure.
Hi Karen, Enjoyed reading your stories, very descriptive and powerful. Thanks for following A mom’s blog. Greatly appreciated and humbled. All the best, Zainab
I’m looking forward to reading the new posts on your blog, Zainab. Best wishes, Karen

Hi Thomas. Thanks for you comments about my blog. I usually don’t take guest bloggers – the few exceptions are writers who are by invitation only. I wish you all the best with your blogging. Cheers, Karen
