Yessireebob, it’s the one year anniversary of Inspiration Monday! Okay, technically today is Friday. And technically Tuesday will be the official anniversary, but who’s to say we can’t start celebrating now? I asked our badge creator Marantha to design some kind of celebratory graphic and she did not disappoint! Just looking at it makes me happy!
Thank you so much, Marantha. InMonsters: feel free to use it on your upcoming InMon posts. : )
And here’s a little recap of the year:
I want to thank all of you for sharing your work and for being generally awesome – both those of you who have joined us for the first time this week, and those of you who’ve been with us since the beginning (the most frequent participants can check out their names in the graphic above). But linking to 67 of you would take quite awhile. So let me just give some props to Debra over at FindAnOutlet for giving me the idea to start this, and for bravely (and beautifully) taking on the first prompts.
I really can’t express to you all how much fun this year has been, how inspiring it has been to read your work. You guys have taught me so much. Thank you thank you THANK YOU!
And I am so looking forward to another year!
Couple of things before I go:
1. The InMon book. I mentioned the idea of self-publishing a “Best of Inspiration Monday” book several months ago, and several of you thought it was a great idea. Then I got busy and forgot about it for awhile. In case you’re wondering, yes, I still want to do it. It’s just not feasible time-wise right now. We’ll hope we can make it happen sometime in the future.
2. What do you want to read about this year? What topics would y’all like to see covered in future Friday posts? What questions do you have about writing or getting published? Let me know in the comments!
