It's the little things!~

We hear that saying all the time!~ 
But oh so true it is.
I receive emails on a daily basis, thanking me for the newbie party start.
Many feel it was how they even started to grow their blog and actually make friends, and put themselves out there.
Yesterday I received one of the most touching emails.

Thanks Debbie, I just want to say thank you so much for hosting the newbie party. I'm to old now to participate lol, but if it were not for your help I wouldn't be close to 200 followers. Joining the newbie party gave me the confidence to reach out more to other bloggers and to join more parties. Not an easy feat for a shy introvert like me. I enjoy your blog and look forward to your post. Your warm and bubbly personality always shines through.If I had one wish for the blog world my wish would be that all bloggers no matter how big they are would remember from whence they came and be as warm friendly and as giving as you. I hope to follow in your foot steps an acknowledge every blogger who takes the time to read and follow my blog. Have a great weekend, and thanks again from the bottom of my heart.

Thank you Karen!~ It really made my day, as do all your wonderful emails.  I can't reply and comment to all of you as much as I would like.  But do know, I read them, and really appreciate your kindness just back to me.

Have a great day, and see you tomorrow night for the newbie party.
So what has the newbie party done for you? Old and new bloggers, I would love to hear about it.

Ditto. I think I only have a few more weeks until I "Age out as well", but I'll always come back and check it out. I think newer bloggers post more original ideas and so your party will always be my fav.

Debbie, I've commented before on how much I appreciate your encouragement, and hosting. You have got to be one of the fastest responders to participants. Seeing your enthusiastic face in my comments always makes me smile. When I outgrow the newbie stage, I will always be back to encourage and hopefully inspire others, as you have done.

Debbie, I couldn't agree with her more! You have helped me and my little 'ol blog more than you know! I know for certain I wouldn't have the whopping 67, lol, followers I have if it weren't for you!! Don't get me wrong, I am happy to have 67 friends I get to connect with on a daily basis, plus so many more. You are a great role model for the blogging community!! Your warm and sunny personality really does shine through each post. When I refer to you, I refer to you as my friend. :) Thanks for everything!

What a wonderful email and you deserve it for helping give new bloggers out there a way to get started.
Too bad there's not something out there to help 'tween bloggers (in between new and seasoned bloggers) it can be a frustrating for us "sort of newbies" too.
So glad you are there and thank you for all you do...

I ditto what Karen said, well, except for the getting too old part! It doesn't sound like she's as old as she thinks! I give you full credit for getting me over the 100 followers mark, and then some. So "Thank You, Ms. Debbie" for being the terrific person you are!
xoxo, CAS

What a lovely thank you note. I wish I had thought to write it. I was so disappointed when I went to the Newbie party Friday and saw it was closed. But then I was excited to see there would be a new one on Monday. I have finally entered the blogging world. Yours is definitely one of my favorites.

I wish there was a newbie party like yours when I started my blog.

You're a giving person, Debbie, and that email summed it up wonderfully.

I couldn't agree with her more. I had really only just started getting comfortable writing my blog when you announced plans for the newbie party. Right away I saw a jump in readership. You've always been so warm and giving, and such an inspiration. Thanks for doing all you do.

Deb-Deb-Deb-e-Doo... I just linked up to you... Your photo party that is. Hey, and check out the one newbie I have found. Look on her June postings, at the wedding block moving one. She has captured me already. Off to a great start and I like that she is taking slow and steady.

Can't wait to see what you are up to today.
