Nancy’s Point Turns Eight & A Gift Box Giveaway!

This month marks eight years blogging for me. Eight years! Sometimes it’s even hard for me to believe I’ve been at it this long. When I started, I had no idea how long I’d continue. Actually, I had no idea what blogging was about, period. It’s a learn as you go sorta thing. And believe me, I’m still learning. And I still don’t know how long I’ll keep at it.

What’s in store for year nine?

I’ve got a few things up my sleeve. I can’t give away all my secrets in this post though.

No, this post is to say, thank you!

Thank you, Dear Readers, for sticking around. A few of you have been reading since day one. Okay, not since day one, ‘cuz at the beginning nobody was reading except Dear Daughter (Thank you, Lindsay). But some of you (you know who you are) have been reading for years, and I’m grateful. If you’re new here, welcome! If you’re somewhere in-between, thank you to you as well.

Readers keep bloggers going. Or at least readers keep this blogger going.

Next week, I’m going to share a bit about my blogging experience, how it’s evolved, my goals and answer a bothersome question I was asked once that’s always lingered in the back of my mind. I’ll also talk about a couple changes I’ve made and why I made them. And maybe I’ll share that blogger/writer pet peeve that’s been on my mind, but that I haven’t gotten up the nerve to write about yet.


I wanna keep it real here too. So…

But for now, THANK YOU for reading Nancy’s Point!

To celebrate eight years of blogging, I’m putting together a couple gift boxes to give away. One giveaway will be via the blog and the other will be via my newsletter. (And yes, you can enter both giveaways, if you want to.)

I’m still putting the boxes together, but each will include my two books (if you’ve read them, I’m hoping you’ll pass them on. Thank you!), a bunch of little surprises and a personal thank you note from yours truly.

Here’s to another year of keeping it real and hopefully offering support you can use. Let’s tackle year nine together!

‘Cuz who wants to navigate the cancer maze alone, right?

Thank you for reading Nancy’s Point!

Hi Nancy... I discovered you about a year ago on a listing of the top breast cancer blogs in the country. You most definitely belong there at the top! I was treated in 2002 for DCIS in my early 40s. 12 years later I had a recurrence at stage 3A and got the works done. Each time just the tiniest of calcifications showing up on a mammogram. I’m four years out from the last diagnosis and doing well. You and your readers are a great support and source of information. Like many of you, talking about any of this with our family and friends just makes them uncomfortable... so I rarely do. And I really want to move on as well, as hard as that seems some days. Anyway keep up the good work Nancy and I would also like to be entered into your contest. Thank you!

Betty, Thank you for sharing how you came upon the blog. I'm sorry you had a recurrence, but I'm glad you're doing okay now. Thanks for your kind words and thank you for participating in my giveaway.

Why do I read your blog? Because you're very *real* in how you express what you're going through / have gone through. My diagnosis came Thanksgiving Eve 2016, turned out to be stage 2B (1 lymph node involved), ILC on the left side, and IDC & DCIS on the right. Some time after my DMX in January 2017, I came across your book "Cancer was not a gift and It didn't make me a better person" and my first thought was "Finally, someone who gets it!" I kept your book alongside me as I recovered in my recliner, and then found your blog and have followed you ever since. (I also changed oncologists right after the surgery; scary, but so the right thing to do! And your experience gave me courage to do just that.) Reading your blog feels like hearing from a friend; sorry that has been a bit one-sided, as I don't write you back! :-) Do know that your words are read, they are important, and they are very, very helpful. And yes, I would love to be entered in your giveaway, please.

Sarah, Thank you for sharing why you read my blog. How awful to be diagnosed on Thanksgiving Eve, but then it's not like there is a good time. It's nice to hear my book was helpful. I appreciate you taking time to share and thanks for participating in my giveaway. Good luck!
