It’s My Second Blogoversary!

Posted · 14 Comments


Wow. Two years. Ridiculous how fast time goes by. Truly, I’m shocked writing this because it doesn’t feel like that much time at all. This is just a quick note to let you know that the vast majority (99.9%) of you are:

  • amazing
  • gifted & crazy talented
  • supportive
  • nurturing & encouraging
  • stellar human beings

The very few of you who’ve been nasty, well there’s still hope for you. Believe in yourself. All you have to do is choose differently. Be kind.

Thank you so much for hanging out with me for two years. You’ve made my life a lot brighter & more fun & I’m so grateful to you for that. Raising a glass *clink* for a celebration and a wish for another great year (both for me & for you).

An update on my new novel

My apologies for those of you who’ve been waiting for a new novel from me. I know it’s been a long time. Here’s the scoop: I finished novel number two. I started number three while number two was out being read by some editor friends of mine. Turns out much to my surprise (and delight!) that the two books are interrelated. So rather than publish number two and get the details wrong, I opted to write number three at the same time. Working on two different (but related) novels isn’t something I usually do, so there’s been a bit of a learning curve.

Anyway, all that to say this: I’m shooting for a release date of later this year for novel number two. Thanks so much for your patience and your support and your encouragement. It’s meant so much to me to get letters & emails from readers of my first novel, Small as a Mustard Seed, asking to see my new work. It’s on its way. Just a little bit longer.

Thank you so much!

I’m looking forward to another successful year!

  1. Congratulations Shelli on your 2nd blog anniversary. Mine is right around the corner. I’ve always assumed yours had been out much longer.
    I’m truly excited to learn your 2nd book is coming out soon. Can’t wait to read it.

    • Hi Rich! *waves*

      Thanks so much. Glad to hear yours is coming soon. No, been writing longer but not blogging all too long. Thanks for the good wishes about my book. Makes me happy to hear that you’re excited about it. Cheers, my friend.

    Hi Shelli 😀

    Happy Blogoversary!
    Wow, time flies.
    Parroting Rich – I cannot wait for your next book to come out (I must remember to post a review on Amazon for SMS – I’d give it 6 stars if I could!).
    Thank you for being the voice of encouragement, insight, humor and the face behind some fabulous recipes.
    Love you to bits girl – keep up the great work!

    • Hi lovely Sandy!

      Thanks so much, doll. Yes, it flies; honestly, I can’t believe it. Awww, thanks for looking forward to my next book (& the 6 stars for the first one!). Yes, I’m looking forward to having it done. 😀 I love you to bits, too, darlin. Lots of hugs for you, always!

  3. Happy Blogoversary, Shelli! 🙂

  4. Wow, I have been so bad about getting to blogs this year but…congratulations!!! Two years is quite a milestone. I’ll be celebrating that same one in a few weeks, and it’s really surprising. It doesn’t seem like that long (most days).

    Anyway…congratulations on the new book! 🙂

    • Hi Kristy!

      Lovely to see you again. Thanks for the good wishes. Congrats to you on your upcoming milestone. 🙂 The (most days) made me laugh ~ isn’t that the truth? Have a great week, darlin.

  5. Hi, Shelli. I got here as soon as I could. Darn day jobs! Any cake left? 🙂
    Congratulations on everything. I’m glad to hear that most of your interactions with folks have been positive. You have been a particular ray of sunshine for me, being so positive about things that life can (and usually does) throw our way. I hope I have been able to catch some sunshine and throw it back your way on an occasion or two. Best of luck with everything, my friend.
    I’ll be back to hear more about this trip of yours…


    • Hi Jimmy!

      Yes, those pesky day jobs. 😀 Don’t you worry, there’s ALWAYS cake (or some kind of sweets) at my house as I have a crazy BIG sweet-tooth. Thanks for the good wishes & for the kind words that made me smile. 🙂 You’ve always thrown sunshine back my way when you stop by. I thank you for that. I will be blogging about the trip, I’m sure. Have a great week. Cheers to you!

  6. Happy 2nd Anniversary, Shelli! I’ve always found your blog entertaining, insightful, and informative. Here’s to many more blogging years! :-} Reading this post made me realize I have no idea when I started my blog. Naturally, I will be checking as soon as I finish writing this comment. LOL

    • Hi Nikki! *waves wildly*

      Well, thank you very much for the kind & fabulous compliments and the good wishes. Made me smile as I always do when I hear from you. 🙂 (And laugh, too ~ naturally you will be checking!) Have a great week, darlin.
