Over a year ago, an idea took root in a blogger's brain. An idea to inspire those around her, and, in doing so, inspire herself. To release something positive into the world.
I was not that blogger.
That blogger was Kristin of GrowingUp YA. For the last year, and longer, I've been privilege to call Kristin one of best friends, or, as we prefer, my 'boo' (don't tell her I called her that in public), and when she approached me this idea, and asked if I'd like to co-host, I said yes. Thus, Blogspiration was born.
Over the last year, it's been an honour and a privilege to share Blogspiration with you. Seeing what everyone has to share, every week, the wisdom they offer, and the happiness and inspiration you have all brought me is a gift I cannot adequately thank you all for.
I do not believe all good things come to an end. The very best things -- faith, friendship, hope and love -- can be boundless, stretching out over our lifetimes, and long past them, to change the world, indelibly, and leave it a better place. But life and death, beginning and end, are the nature of most things, and Blogspiration, too, has drawn to its close.
As Blogspiration was Kristin's dream, it seems fitting it reaches its conclusion as she, herself, takes her leave from blogging -- though whether or not that is permanent is not for me to say; she may very well return!
So, today is the very last day of Blogspiration as it stands. I'd like to take the opportunity to thank everyone who has made this little meme what it is, for your friendship, and for making our little corner of the blogosphere and better, more positive place.
