Nancy’s Point Turns Six!

I have now been blogging for six years. Wow. Six years. Sort of unbelievable even for me. I started blogging right after Labor Day probably because as an educator at heart, September is the real start of the new year as far as I’m concerned. So it just made sense for me to start then. After my cancer diagnosis, it became too difficult for a variety of reasons for me to continue teaching, so I started writing and blogging. It’s still work, but I get to do it while staying in the comforts of my home. Do I miss teaching? Yes. Sometimes. But life is about changing and adapting, right? I continue trying to do both. I’m sure you do too.

As I start my seventh year blogging, my heart is filled with gratitude for you, my dear readers. Writing of any sort is a whole lot more rewarding when someone actually reads your words. It’s also a lot more fun.

So thank you.

Thank you for reading Nancy’s Point. I value your readership, comments and support very much.

As I continue to navigate the maze that is cancer and loss, perhaps as you do too; I will keep sharing some hopefully pertinent information, my stories, my opinions, my struggles and my hopes and dreams, too. I hope to hear about some of yours as well because we are in this together.

Thank you for hanging around with me the past six years, or however long it’s been for you.

And if you’re a newbie here, welcome!

Hi Nancy,

Congratulations on six years. I look forward to your posts in this seventh year. For me, the year begins in the fall, too. I really appreciate all you do to educate others and share your candor and experiences.

Beth, Thank you, Beth. You've been sticking around for a long time now and I sure appreciate it!

Wow, six years! I'm sure I speak for many when I say you are an inspiration. I've been following you for about a year and a half now, having found you during a desperate search for information on what to expect during cancer treatment. I voraciously read all of your posts and every comment made by your followers. I'm almost two years out of chemo now and the road is looking slightly less bumpy. I shudder to think how difficult my experience would have been without the support of your blog and though things are better, I still check in every month to find out what's new in the world of Nancy. Congratulations on your anniversary and thank you from the bottom of my heart for opening yours to the rest of us.

Lennox, Well, thank you. You're very kind to say such nice things. Made my day. :)

Nancy, congratulations on six years! I found your blog two years ago and enjoyed reading it from day one. I am so thankful for your contributions to our online community and for the different ways you've helped me (and so many others) deal with the survivorship challenges. Thank you for everything you do and for your continuous support. xoxo

Oh my gosh--happy 6 years of blogging! Ha, yeah I think September is the "real" new year too! How many blogs do I read? I don't even know! I'm so methodical about so many things in my life, but very scattered about social media. I subscribe to a few blogs via email, I follow some via Wordpress, then there are the things that pop up in a Facebook feed--but that's so unreliable! The other bad habit I've developed, is to save links on FB, or bookmark blog posts if I don't find them via FB, because I don't always have time during the week. Then I try to plow thru on the weekends. I'm of course a big reader, and I really want to read everything. I've learned to just cut myself slack. Thank YOU for your blog--if you had not been here when I started looking around when I started blogging (4 years ago about now), I don't know WHAT I would've done!!

CC, I have no idea how many blogs I read either, so I guess I am pretty scattered regarding social media stuff as well. Thank you for reading mine and thanks so much for your kind words. And you know I'm a huge fan of your blog. :)

I read 10+ blogs and I believe I have been reading Nancy's Point for 4-5 years, so I have been around awhile! Congrats on 6 years!
