Gratitude: This Blog is a Year Old


Yesterday, I was scrolling through my Timehop app, and I discovered the initial post which launched this website and blog one year ago. I smiled with a lot of gratitude.

I love writing at Smuggling Grace. Today I want to share a shout out to subscribers to say thank you, not only for following along, but also for adding your own voices and perspectives. People have done that in blog comments and on Facebook. Folks have sent me emails, and in some cases, we have sat down over coffee and shared wonderful conversations together. Thank you. It means so much to me.

And that also has me thinking: I have personal connections to some of my subscribers, but there are many more of you whom I do not know. I’m wondering if you might send me an email to introduce yourself. You can write me here: That will also give me the opportunity to thank you personally.

It’s been a wonderful adventure of writing. Thank you for your part in that!

I also want to thank the people who have supported Smuggling Grace financially this year. These contributions have helped me maintain the site and pay fees to WordPress. They have also provided support as I work to organize a new community in Southeast Michigan. Thank you!

My written content here will always, always be free of charge. But for those who would like to contribute, you can do so here: Support Smuggling Grace.

Many thanks to. . .
