It’s amazing to me sometimes how I can go days, weeks and sometimes even months without posting anything on Mari’s site and then I will go several days in a row where I have lots to say.
For me Mari’s website isn’t about having a specific number of posts or trying to attract hundreds of people. Now don’t get me wrong, I’d love to have hundreds of people visiting her website to learn more about her and where I am with my grief journey as all of this helps her memory continue to live on.
But for me the most important part of Mari’s site is keeping it real. When I have something that is swirling around in my head I almost immediately write it down or at least the thought that will lead to something longer later. I think its these thoughts that help people to see the real me. They get to see who Mari was in all her exuberance and mischief. Basically everything about Mari that made her her and why so many people loved her so much.
I’ve read several books on why you need to post to your website or blog on a regular basis. And I can truly understand and see that for other website. I truly believe if I did that that my writing on this site would lose the fundamentally important part of why I have been doing this since the start. It’s all about in the moment or reflecting upon past moments.
I’m sure I could come up with things on a more regular basis but I’d rather come up with something from the heart than to just rattle off something because I said I’d post on Mondays or something like that. I hope that makes sense.
To all of you who have been loyal, faithful followers. Thank you. I appreciate you kindness and support. And to those of you who may only come by once. My hope is that somehow Mari’s site has touched you in some small way. I thank you for stopping by if only for a moment because it is those moments that start to all add up.
