Today marks my last post on the TPT Challenge that 4 wonderful ladies started earlier this summer.
I have learned a lot through this challenge and
forced made myself keep busy making things and following others even though I've had a houseful of guests and had many things on my agenda.
(Yes, I can do it all . . . . . said everyone who is a teacher!)
When I first started blogging the normal thing to do was to read someone's blog and leave a quick comment.
You NEVER just walked away!
If you were a new follower, then you always said, "Hey I'm your newest follower . ." (or something like that!) and left your name and said some kind words too.
If you had a blog of your own you would also leave the link for your blog name.
If you don't know how to do that, just look at my sample.

In the red part put your whole blog address. In the blue part put the actual name (with the spaces) of your blog. Then save this to your desktop or someplace where you can grab it when ever you need it.
But . . . back to the beginning of my story. . . there are so many blogs to read and our time seems so short that many people aren't leaving comments or saying hello.
One of the things that this challenge has reminded me was to do just that. Make comments, ask questions, leave compliments and always leave your blog name.
As to who am I loving since this challenge. . . well they aren't exactly new people. . . just well loved ones! Heather's Hearts was one of the first blogs that I started following. She was very sweet and helpful and seemed to be talking right to me.
Missy Squirrels has been a teacher, is now subbing, and makes wonderful things with her hands. I love her sense of humor and now that I've added Periscope to my social media, I love to listen to her talk too!
Alyce Bartel and I have met a couple times and I so enjoy each time we chat. She has been a huge supporter of me and always encourages me to keep on going! It's funny how those nice comments and always being there to leave comments has left an incredible impression on me. (see didn't I tell you that comments were important!)
