10 Years… and Counting!


10 year banner~~~

Can’t believe it’s been ten years since this little blog began as a landing page for Region E of Michigan’s south central chapter of the Parent Teacher Association (PTA) when I served as a local president, council president and board member.

A lot has changed.

My children are ADULTS, grown and on their own and I stepped away from PTA.

I got fed up with Facebook drama and transitioned this site to a book blog in support of mainly indie authors.

More than 5,000 posts have found their way to these blog pages and received more than 121,000 views and 4500 comments. Many thanks to followers and supporters who make Nesie’s Place a regular stop during their online time.

I’ve made some amazing contacts, and even better… some amazing friends.

I’ve self-published.

I’ve written and posted close 100 short stories on FeliciaDenise.com.

I learned what a Drabble is.

I won a writing challenge.

And I’ve learned quite a bit about blogging, writing, people… and myself.

I’m looking forward to the future and getting back to writing, though the journey will be bittersweet.

I lost my two biggest cheerleaders this year.

My husband, Dennis, in May


(He was always my biggest supporter, reading everything I wrote… then complaining because there was no teleportation, earth-shattering explosions, epic battles, secret portals, guys named Gus and Deke… or zombies. He knew I hated zombies.)

and my mom last weekend.

It’s not lost on me that during my last conversation with Mom, she commented, “I should let you go. I’ve kept you on this phone for two hours and you probably need to write something or do one of those blog thingys.”

Mom. God bless her.

It’s not going to be easy, but I’d better get busy writing… and doing those blog thingys.

    1. Ten years, eh? Bet it doesn’t feel like 3650 days at all, does it? ๐Ÿ˜‰ Yes, I did the sums all by myself LOL
      Congrats on the anniversary. Your support of other indie authors is amazing, as are your own stories.
      The Mister and your mom knew that in being your cheerleaders. May they both rest in peace, safe in the knowledge that you have so many fans and supporters cheering you on from afar.
      Keep those stories coming!

      1. Thank you, Lynne. Their support was always so matter-of-fact. “You have a story in your head? So write it already.” ๐Ÿ˜„

        Now with the horde of characters in my head fighting for their stories, I’ll have Mom insisting everyone wait their turn… and wash their hands, and Den…trying to sneak in Zombies! ๐Ÿ˜„

        I knew all along you were hiding superior math skills. ๐Ÿ˜œ

      2. Ha ha! Your mom will disarm them with a smile while she gets them into an orderly line. As for Den, I reckon a dog story could keep the zombies at bay LOL.

        And I know how you like big numbers … Your word count speaks for itself ๐Ÿ˜‰
